Staying in for Valentine's Day dinner? Don't hang your head in shame! Doing V-Day dinner at home is actually a great opportunity to create a romantic evening tailor made to fit your S.O.'s taste, and a fabulous way to enjoy some quiet time alone. Along with a steamy menu, you'll need the perfect decor to turn your home into a romantic getaway, and some fun dinner time activities to let you and your S.O. spend time talking, laughing, and falling in love all over again.
