The most romantic day of the year is right around the corner. While there is an extensive list of pros and cons for travel, if you are more comfortable at home (or if you just looked at your calendar and realized you didn't make plans...!) there are a ton of great ideas to make some magic happen right away in your own backyard.
Twinkle lights (also known as "Fairy Lights" or, depending on the style, "Globe Lights"), are an instant magic-maker when it comes to spaces, especially small spaces. They cast an even glow of light that makes any area look warm and inviting. Easy to set up, and even easier to enjoy, having some soft lighting adds an extra layer of wonder to your evening.
To level up from there, why not plan a dinner "out"...outside that is! A BBQ is always great place to start and don't forget you don't have to limit your BBQ experience to meats. There are some incredible grill recipes for vegetables and even fruits. Grilled heart-shaped pineapple slices, anyone??
