Valentine's Day Dinner at Home

If you're planning a romantic Valentine's date night at home, here are my suggestions:

1. Heart-Shaped Ravioli...you can't go wrong with fresh Italian delicacies. I have a box in my freezer (thanks, mom) waiting for the big day.

2. Spanish Cava.Think of it as Champagne's romantic cousin from Spain. Crisp and delicious. Try Freixnet's Carta Nevada Brut for a good, affordable version.

3. Red Velvet Cupcakes baked in these adorable red swirl baking cups from Layer Cake Shop.

If you don't want to bake them from scratch, pick up a box of Duncan Hines Red Velvet Cake Mix (which is in my cupboard right now) and their Whipped Cream Cheese frosting...top it off with shredded coconut...delish!

4. A cozy cashmere throw (on sale at WS Home!) in a spicy shade to cuddle up to with while you and your Valentine...

...play Love Letter Mad Libs :) Yes, I bought these too...I couldn't resist, they are hilarious.

What are your plans for Valentine's Day? Will you be spending it at home or out on the town?
