Plan The Perfect Valentine's Date
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, now is the ideal time to start thinking about how you will celebrate the special night with the one you love.
From moonlight picnics to cuddling in with a movie, GEARYS is here to help you make a romantic night even more memorable. We’ve hand selected our favorite date options and paired them with products designed to make the day picture-perfect.
A Moonlit Meal on the Beach
For the couple that’s been together for many Valentine’s Days, something more romantic is in order. Luckily, in Southern California, we have the splendor of the Pacific Ocean in our backyard. Bundle up to enjoy a moonlit stroll and meal under the stars, perhaps with a fire pit nearby for added warmth. The Yellowstone Willow Picnic Basket for two will provide everything you need, all you will have to do is pack a light dinner - such as a chicken salad with some wine & cheese to start. A cozy blanket will keep you and your meal free of the beach elements. While the moon is a beautiful site, it’s best to provide additional lighting. A pair of the Nantucket Hurricanes from Simon Pierce will ensure your candles burn bright, protecting the flame from the wind and sand. Plus, they’ll make a thoughtful centerpiece when placed next to the Baccarat Zinzin Large Red Heart. After the meal is finished, you can take a blissful stroll along the shoreline. The atmosphere is set and ready to help you create a Valentine’s Day to remember.
A Thoughtfully Cooked Romantic Dinner
For the couple that enjoys cooking, are further along in their relationship, or simply wish to avoid the crowds of a restaurant, a home-cooked meal is just the thing. The clear, crystal Valentino Votive from Orrefors will provide an elegant touch to the table, as would a bouquet of dark red roses placed in the matching heart shaped Valentino Vase. A chateaubriand served on the opulent red and gold patterned Fortuny Red Maori Platter from L'Objet is an exquisite choice to celebrate the holiday of love that adds Venetian flair to the table. The table setting would only be complete with the Red Fortuny Dinner Plate. Toast to the evening with a little bubbly in the love-inspired Lover’s Crystal Flute from Vista Alegre.
A Romantic Night In
Valentine’s Day does not need to be celebrated in a big fanfare way for all couples, and if this is you, there’s nothing better than a night in. Curl up on the sofa with a classic — we suggest Casablanca or Gone With the Wind—and celebrate the night together. The small heart bowl from Offerors is perfect for small chocolate candies, or even a bit of popcorn to enjoy during the movie. A bouquet of her favorite blooms will add a romantic touch in the matching heart vase. A cozy night in is a wonderful way to celebrate love.
Cocktails In and a Meal Out
If you’re looking to start the night off as just the two of you, but prefer to dine out, cocktails on the patio or in the backyard provide a romantic setting to begin your celebrations. Whether you prefer a dry glass of wine or a glass of whiskey on the rocks, our many collections from fabulous designers are sure to have elegant glasses in stunning shades of red, perfect for Valentine’s Day. Toast to your love, sip champagne from the beautiful Mille Nuits Red Flutissimo Flutes from Baccarat, exchange gifts and you’ll be on your way to celebrate at your favorite restaurant. For authentic Italian food, we suggest making a reservation at Via Alloro Ristorante located in the heart of Beverly Hills. Dining in their gorgeous outdoor patio will feel like an Italian getaway and sets the stage for an unforgettable evening ahead.
Of course, no Valentine’s Day would be complete without a token to let your significant other know how much you care. GEARYS has beautiful pieces designed to delight whether you’ve just begun seeing one another, or have been together for years. Make Valentine’s Day special this year with a date night inspired by all our favorite designers.
