1. Too Cute to Cook

Cooking is so much fun, but sometimes all you need is a cute board, some plates, and delicious meats & cheeses for an amazing, laid back dinner. Here are some of our favorites to create the best charcuterie board.

We love a good charcuterie and plate set. These amazing Amazon finds will set you up for success for any occasion. This Charcuterie Board is perfect to have all the necessities while not having to worry about storing extra knives. We also use these Meri Meri Heart Plates every chance we can!

Now we can't forget some yummy ingredients. Here are our Top 5 go-to's for any board we make:

Boars Head Salami and Prosciutto

- Cheese from Sweet Grass Dairy 

- Drunken Goat from Mitica Cheese

- Barely Buzzed from Beehive Cheese

- Rogue River Blue from Rogue Creamery 

2. Laid Back in Love

Going out on Valentine's Day can be such a nightmare, why not skip the stress and have a movie night? Picking the silliest rom-com or a movie you have both been wanting to watch, can be the best way to relax and enjoy each other's company. Here are our recommendations to make a movie night in even better.

We love these items for a cozy night on the couch. We love this Bedsure Faux Fur Throw Blanket to stay warm, but sometimes we are feeling a little extra, and love to snuggle up in this Heated Blanket . Now sometimes we have to get up to refill our snacks or drinks, so these Fuzzy Warm Slipper Socks keep our feet warm while walking around.

Before getting cozy under the blanket with your socks on, don't forget some yummy snacks. Popcorn is always a great go-to, but don't be afraid to have fun! Grab your favorite gummy worms, or that candy you have not had since you were a kid. Also, don't forget a drink to pair with those amazing snacks. For a romantic feel a glass of wine is always a great option. If you aren't sure about what wine would work with your popcorn or candy, check out Big Macs & Burgundy for the ultimate pairings of wine and everyday foods.

We have some Carolina CreekHouse favorite movies for Valentine's Day above, but if movies aren't your jam, don't worry. Here are 3 great shows on Netflix for your night in.

3. All's Fair in Love and Games

Want to include the little ones in your celebration of Valentine's Day with your partner? We love games nights with our families, and they can be so much fun no matter how many people you have.
