nannies4hire.jpgFebruary 14th is usually marked with flowers, chocolates, and love letters. Many couples like to end their Valentine’s Day with a romantic dinner and a glass of fine wine.

However, with the kids around, enjoying a quiet Valentine’s Day is nearly impossible. For a nice evening, find a babysitter or drop the kids off at Grandma’s. You don’t want to be interrupted by a crying baby while the two of you are whispering words of love to each other.

Creating the perfect setting will make the night memorable. Here are a few tips:

  • Whether it’s a bouquet from the local florist or a nice arrangement of flowers from the backyard, flowers are a great touch. Too busy to run to the florist? Order online: http://www.gagazine.com/flowers
  • Set the mood with lighting. Use candles or dim the lights and turn on some soft music.
  • Cook your loved one’s favorite dish.
  • And pair the meal with a nice bottle of wine or bubbly. For pairing suggestions to make your dinner extra special, visit: http://www.winehappy.com
