The Metroplex is filled with great things to do and unique ways to celebrate Valentine's Day with your sweetie. Here you'll find unique ideas, inexpensive ideas, restaurants preparing special Valentine's Day/Weekend meals, where to buy the best gourmet chocolates, and local florists that really deliver. There's even a great spa event for singles in the area.
Many DFW restaurants are offering tasting menus, special prices and Valentine's Day meals. Here are just a few to offer you some delicious choices. Don't wait until February 14th to make a reservation. This is updated constantly so check back in regularly. Chefs are still busy preparing their special menus.
Here are some clever alternatives to a heart-shaped box of candy and a dozen red roses. Do you have an original idea for the most romantic day of the year? Please share it with me. In the meantime, there's a St. Valentine's Day murder/mystery party, visit Moxley Manor's Valentine's Day special event, or just take a hot air balloon ride.
There's nothing wrong with the chocolates that come from the supermarket -- but gourmet chocolates and confections made with premium ingredients will show your sweetie that you put forth the extra effort. Smart.
PS: I love dark chocolate!!!!
Here are some of our readers' favorite local florists that really deliver. Feel free to share your favorites with us too! Fresh flowers always brighten my day, put a big smile on my face and make my home smell fresh. Taking proper care of your fresh flowers is vital to their longevity. Change the water daily (or at least every other day) and add the little packet of freshener that's delivered with the flowers. It really well help extend the life of the bouquet. If one isn't delivered, simply add about a tablespoon of bleach.
Roses are red
Violets are blue
Happy Valentine's Day
From me to you.
