Set the scene ~

It’s not hard to set a table for 2 in blush tones with a shabby chic flair. Mix and match thrift store plates and layer them up boho style. Pick up baby roses from the grocery store or Trader Joe’s, separate them out and display them singly or in small groups in vintage bottles or mason jars. Add some winter branches or greens from the yard to round out the look. Fold a rustic washed linen napkin, top with pretty silverware (from grandma or Goodwill) and a little leftover length of ribbon to tie it all up.

Soup or salad ~

Creamy Shrimp Bisque & Shaved Apple and Radish Salad make the question “soup or salad?” a difficult one to answer. I say start with the soup, then move on to the salad, your Valentine deserves both.

Main course ~

My Rosé Wine Risotto is cozy yet special, perfect for any February holiday. The best part? It’s made in 6 minutes in the Instant Pot! Want to go all out, and get some extra protein to boot? Try my Instant Pot Lobster Risotto.
