Hip Hostess: A Valentine’s Day Picnic

Rather than the traditional dinner out, try hosting a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner at home with an intimate picnic in your living room! Clear out the furniture, lay out a cozy blanket, and light a few candles for ambiance. The only other requirements? Some wine to sip, and someone you love to spend the evening with.

Clockwise from top left:

Draw out the evening by savoring wine and each other’s company. The bottle you choose will depend on your personal preferences and the type of food you eat, but if you need ideas, allow us to recommend Clos Du Bois Chardonnay ($14.99) or Decoy Cabernet ($21.99)!
