ELEVATE YOUR DATE NIGHT

ELEVATE YOUR DATE NIGHT

i’m cooking more than ever these days. i love putting in a lot of effort one night and then making something really simple the next night. constantly switching up the flavors and difficulty levels. some nights it’s nice to put in a little more effort for your partner and make it feel like a fancier date. for me, i always notice that when i have flowers on the table, a burning candle, a record playing, a glass of wine, and a pretty table…it feels SPECIAL. today we’re focusing on really simple ways to elevate your date night. they are quick, inexpensive, and have a lot of impact on the evening! -bri

oh the difference it makes…

ELEVATE YOUR DATE NIGHT | designlovefest

TIPS TO ELEVATE YOUR DATE NIGHT SETUP:

• we all eat with our eyes too! so presentation can make a big difference. you can get a rotisserie chicken but decide to plate it over some rosemary potatoes and it suddenly feels like you’re eating at a restaurant!

• fresh herbs. this is a big one. not only sprinkling fresh rosemary but also using the full sprigs for garnish on the plate will make it look nice. the same goes for adding fresh lemon slices to your water. keep a couple of fresh herb options on hand, i like basil, rosemary and mint and incorporate them into your meals throughout the week. it’s amazing how much it can impact the flavor of a really simple dish. adding fresh dill to your tuna salad, chopped meat to your salad, basil on a piece of fish, etc.

• matching silverware (we love ) 

• your wine while you’re cooking. it helps with the flavor and the presentation is appealing.

• taking your condiments OUT of the packaging is a big one. as a visual person this is probably the most important one for me. taking your berries out of the plastic and putting them in a bowl, putting your salt in a pinch bowl…basically taking any logos off the table and using vessels to style with.

• add a linen tablecloth and cloth napkins (you can pick up raw edged linen from your local fabric store for much cheaper than buying a linen tablecloth. it still looks cool! that’s what we are using here as our table cloth)

• herbed butter (you can look at this post for flavored butter ideas) served in a small bowl on the table. make your rolls taste amazing, or simply dip radishes with salt in the butter (so delicious)

• light a candle…set the mooooooood.

• flowers or greenery on the table actually do make it feel special. sometimes if i don’t have time to get them at the store i just go clip something from my yard and put it in a vase.

ROSÉ PUNCH

rosé punch | designlovefest

it’s finally friday and it’s a long weekend! we’re excited to kick back with friends and family, enjoy the day off and spend time remembering all of the men and women who fought and died for our country. if you’re hosting a bbq or just enjoying the day outdoors with a few friends this rosé punch is the thing to make. it’s super simple, partially hydrating thanks to the sparkling water and not too strong so you can enjoy a couple of glasses on ice.

we used as it’s on the sweeter side and provides a nice balance with the citrus. it’s also very affordable so you won’t have to break the bank to fill up your entire punch bowl!

what you’ll need: quantities vary depending on the size of your punch bowl. 

8 cups
juice of 3 lemons
juice of 2 grapefruits
2 cups lemonade
2 cups sparkling citrus water (we used grapefruit)
+ optional simple syrup to taste (we didn’t use any but if you want it to be sweeter, go for it!)

we purchased edible flowers from . you could also do floral or fruit ice cubes or even frozen fruit skewers as a garnish. if you do the skewers, make sure the fruit is wet before you freeze it so if gives you that nice icy look for serving.
