Colt’s for Dinner
There’s no love quite like a delicious dinner from Colt’s! If you’re looking for a true feast, think about one of our Colt’s Pigout Family meals. They say food is the fastest way to someone’s stomach, and this meal is just the pick for that! Enjoy 1 lb. of St. Louis Ribs, 1/2 lb. pulled pork, 1/2 lb. brisket, 1 whole chicken, cornbread, and two pints of any of our delicious sides.
Mood Lighting & Candles
Changing up the lighting throughout your home will make it feel like a new, dreamy escape, perfect for the day. The colors red and pink are known to entice excitement & passion, with hues reminiscent of a warm sunset. You could choose to get LED strip lights or color-changing lightbulbs for this, which are great to have for any time of year. If not using color-changing lights, then soft white lighting is your next best bet. Last but not least, don’t forget the candles! Floral scents are always a good choice when it comes to setting a romantic scene, like jasmine, cherry blossom, or roses. The soft lighting they emit is great for the setting as well.
Set the Table
While the dinner might be messy, it can be offset by making the table look great! Set out your fanciest plates and silverware along with some nice champagne glasses. Grab you and your loved one’s favorite bubbly - with alcohol or not - and set it in a bucket of ice for the centerpiece. Candles are a great touch here, too. Don’t forget the placemats and napkins as well!
What’s more soothing to the soul than some good music? Well, BBQ of course, but good music is a close second! Put together a playlist of you and your partner’s favorite songs to play while eating. Then, after dinner & while you digest, cozy up on the couch with some TV or a movie. Pick something new, or an old classic! If you’re looking for some inspiration, here’s a list of the 40 most romantic Valentine’s Day movies.
However you decide to spend your evening, we hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s day & enjoy the best that Colt’s has to offer!
