Celebrate Valentine's Day With an Indoor Picnic For Two

Jan 27 2012 - 12:04pm

Ditch the ├╝berfancy dinner this Valentine's day and enjoy your meal on the floor! Throw down a big comfy blanket and lots of pillows to turn your living room into a romantic indoor picnic (or if you want to get really creative, build a fort for two!). Play a classic romantic movie (we suggest An Affair to Remember or Casablanca) on your laptop and serve a picnic-inspired menu, loaded with aphrodisiacs. Click through for our romantic indoor picnic suggestions.

Spiked Lemonade

Sip on lemonade [2], a picnic staple, but spike it with some whisky for extra fun.

Greek Salad Skewers

Feed each other bites of Greek salad [3] off of skewers, as you close your eyes and imagine you're on a beach on a Greek island.

Arugula Salad With Persimmons and Pomegranate Seeds

Did you know that arugula has been thought of as an aphrodisiac since the first century A.D.? Serve up a big bowl of this spicy green tossed with persimmons and pomegranate seeds. [4]

Pepperoni and Broccoli Rabe Pizza

Though the idea of broccoli rabe as an aphrodisiac may only be a myth, this tasty pizza [5] is sure to put you both in a good mood.

Chocolate Fondue

Chocolate on its own is pretty sexy, but melt it and dip all kinds of fruits and sweets into it [6] and your night will be on a whole new level.
