Considered by many to be the most romantic day of the year, Valentine’s Day holds a unique and endearing place in the hearts of loving couples everywhere. It’s the perfect opportunity to express your gratitude and appreciation for that special someone in your life. And what better way to express that appreciation than with an all-out, full-blown BBQ?
If you’re on the lookout for new ways to make your Valentine’s Day celebration a little more unique, perhaps a BBQ composed of your loved one’s favourite dish is in order. Few things show that you care than a sizzling, delectable, home-cooked BBQ.
And with that being the case, here are a few tips to help you plan and execute your Valentine’s Day BBQ.
1. Set the Ambiance
When most people think of BBQs, typically, the first thing that comes to mind is warm weather, picnic tables, styrofoam plates, watermelon, etc. However, with Valentine’s Day being smack dab in the middle of winter, it’s important to be resourceful when setting up the summertime vibe without compromising your Valentine’s Day theme.
This can be tricky at first, but it’s doable if you know the proper ways to go about it. Get inspiration from upscale dining establishments and see the process they go through to produce that romantic ambiance.
Blanket your table with an alluring tablecloth, pull out the fancy cutlery, light some candles, dim the lights, line the table with flowers or tulips, etc. All of these things coalesce together to create a romantic ambiance.
2. Shock & Awe
When the ambiance is set, the next step is to ensure the evening flows smoothly, and best the way to ensure this progression is with a delicious BBQ meal. While you may have a particular meal in mind (more than likely, the same one you’ve cooked a thousand times before), Valentine’s Day is about spontaneity.
As such, this is the ideal opportunity to surprise your partner by expanding your grilling skillset. Cook up a cuisine that is totally unexpected of you, one that your special someone would never think you’d cook – preferably a grilling option your partner has always wanted to try but hasn’t yet (this will earn you major points).
If you find yourself unable to prepare the type of food you know your partner enjoys (or even if you simply lack the time to do so), Rocky Mountain BBQ caters all types of events and functions. Get in touch with us today for your catering needs.
This shock and awe factor will bring spontaneity to your Valentine’s Day BBQ grill out! And you can bet it will go a long way with your significant other.
3. Grill Together
Grilling together is something that can make anyone feel closer to each other. When you’re working side by side with your partner to accomplish the end goal of cooking a succulent, mouthwatering meal – you’ll feel immensely connected to them, almost joined at the hip.
The hustle and bustle of everyday life often cause us to feel disconnected. However, by turning your Valentine’s Day BBQ into a tag team grill session, you can easily restore that sense of connection that was lost.
Valentine’s Day is that special time of the year designated strictly for you to express the love you have for your partner. And by taking the time to go the extra mile with your BBQ efforts, your love will be felt and won’t go unnoticed.
