Isn't It Romantic

Room by Belle Interiors
Now that it is the very first day in the month that we celebrate LOVE,  I thought I would do a post on Romantic Celebrations. What exactly makes a celebration Romantic?  I am sure it varies from person to person.  For me it would involve staying at home with the love of my life (Hubby), a fireplace, a table set for two, flowers, candlelight, and beautiful music playing softly in the background. I started looking around to find some examples of what I find romantic and it really is subjective. I did find a few things that I would like to share with you that may help you to make that special someone feel Verrrrry Special!!

How about a romantic dinner for two, fireside? If you have a fireplace you can easily put a small table in front of a warm and cozy fire.

Here is a book that will not only help you figure out what to cook and how to make it, but also has music to play along quietly while you eat dinner.
Along with dinner and nice easy listening music, I would have a video of ocean waves. Our favorite place to go is to the ocean.  I am very fortunate to live close enough to take trips to beautiful Carmel Beach in California. We go there as often as possible.
For those of you who live close enough to Carmel or Monterey check out this wonderful web-site and surprise your loved one with your own personal Bon Fire at the beach with a love message placed in the sand outlined in rose petals. It comes complete with blanket and all the fixings to make smores.  I actually purchased this as a gift for a very special person in my life on their anniversary. I was told it was one of the most wonderful surprise they had ever received. I highly recommend this as a special gift to a loved one or a couple in love.

I would like to leave you with these two pictures taken on one of our trips to Carmel. This was a very secluded little cove. Someone had made a heart in the sand with some sea kelp. I must say it made for a very romantic rest of the day. Aaaaaaah!

  Let me know what special plans you are making for your Special Someone.
