How to have an amazing Valentine's Day at home

Are you celebrating Valentine's Day at home?

Here's how to fill your festivities with love and fun - whether you're celebrating with your boo, besties or riding solo!

Breakfast in bed

Why not spoil your sweetheart with a breakfast-in-bed spread worthy of champions? If you can swing it, linger in bed with you boo and enjoy breakfast together. Make it memorable with an upscale menu, adding delicacies not typically enjoyed on your average weekday breakfast. Try savory Lobster Breakfast Casserole as your main dish, or go totally unexpected with Lobster Pancakes. Don't forget to have plenty of bubbly Mimosas on-hand to wash your luxe breakfast down in style.

Go on a (digital) adventure

From cooking classes, to painting lessons, mixology demonstrations and more...there are so many incredible experiences you can enjoy from the comfort of home. These days, creative folks across the spectrum of expertise (Cooking! Acting! Foreign Languages!) are offering classes and demonstrations digitally. Fun and adventure are no longer limited by your location!

Bring five-star dining home

Is your favorite restaurant closed or at limited capacity this Valentine's Day? 

Why not surprise your Valentine with a romantic Maine Lobster Dinner for Two, delivered right to your doorstep, straight off our Portland, ME dock?

If your heart is set on a four or five course fine dining experience, there is some good news. You can have a top-rated restaurant worthy meal delivered to your home. Maine Lobster, Fresh Maine Oysters, Handcrafted Chocolate Desserts - you wouldn't believe the amazing dinners you can have shipped right to your doorstep.

Give your at-home Valentine's Day dinner at five-star feel by adding special touches - many of which you likely already have around the house: drape your table with a tablecloth (an old sheet will work in a pinch), break out the cloth napkins and your best china, bring in some fresh long stem roses, and of course, light plenty of candles. Set the mood with champagne and some romantic music to complete your upscale date night at home.

Host a Galentines (virtual) happy hour

Show your besties near-and-far some love by hosting a virtual happy hour this Valentine's Day. At this point, most of us are familiar with the virtual meeting options available at our fingertips (Zoom, FaceTime, etc.) Put these tools to fun use by gathering your friends to celebrate over cocktails and indulgent food. Incorporate an easy activity to add to the excitement.

Have everyone order a Maine Lobster Roll Kit, and create lobster rolls together to kickoff your event. Create a signature cocktail together, or have a virtual chocolate truffle tasting party. Get creative with your crew, and have fun trying something new (or indulging in old favorites).

We hope these ideas have inspired you to create an amazing at-home Valentine's Day.
