It’s the week before Valentine’s Day, and it seems everyone is scrambling for just the right gift (if it’s not an engagement ring), and of course the beautiful bouquet of flowers to go with it. We love how excited everyone gets trying to create the most romantic Valentine’s Day ever, and creativity does abound! This year, the day that honors lovers falls right smack dab in the middle of the week. February 14th is on a Wednesday, and also happens to be Ash Wednesday for those who observe the Christian/Roman Catholic calendar. So how best to celebrate this day for you to honor your love?
We have heard from floral designers, chocolatiers and jewelers that February 14th and preparation for it is so busy, that providing the best customer service, and freshest products, can be a challenge. The last thing our partner vendors want is a dissatisfied customer, especially on a day that is so important for a couple.
So we have an idea…
Celebrate either earlier or later in the week, when you can actually get a reservation at your most romantic restaurant, your favorite florist can help you select the freshest, most beautiful versions of your love’s favorite blooms, and your favorite B&B will have room at the inn.
Of course this idea works this year, because a romantic weekend is far preferred to a rushed mid-week evening out…after work when you have to get home early because it’s a work night. That’s hardly a recipe for luxurious romance!
Need some romantic gift ideas? A gift certificate to one of our fabulous day spas, a reservation for the most secluded table at one of our restaurants, and a lovely bauble fron one of our gift boutiques will bring delight, we are certain.
But first, book your room at one of our great B&Bs or Country Inns, or even a cottage! Then you have a serene home base to enjoy your forays on the North Fork, from wineries to breweries to foodie adventures in our local restaurants.
Remember, all members of the North Fork Weddings/South Fork Weddings and East End Experience are carefully curated and pre-screened.
No matter how you choose to celebrate your love this Valentine’s Day, we say CHEERS! to all lovers!
