Skip the crowds and enjoy a lovely evening at home.
I love a good cocktail hour, and for some reason I never think to do it at home. This year for Valentine’s Day we will actually be in Scottsdale, but if we were in Chicago I would opt for dinner at home and add a cocktail hour to start. If it’s you and your husband, boyfriend, or girlfriends it adds a fun touch and makes the evening chez vous just a little more special.
To keep it easy, simply go with your favorite cheese, charcuterie and throw in something fresh and festive. I’d go with something red such as grapes, strawberries or even a cherry jam along with some crackers. And of course don’t forget a fun cocktail, champagne or simply crack open some wine to enjoy with your Valentine.
