What menus for Valentine's Day are popular?
Valentine's Day is an important day for many couples, when love and togetherness are in focus. While some celebrate the day with their sweetheart at home on the sofa, others go out for a fancy dinner and/or give each other presents. Valentine's Day is the ideal time to come up with an extra menu proposal tailored to the day. How about a 3-course menu on the day of lovers, or a whole new menu proposal that you won't find on your menu on other days?
For a Valentine's Day menu that will be remembered, it's best to offer several courses. Popular classics include a soup or salad as an appetizer. For the main course, you can offer two or three different dishes to include vegetarian or vegan delights in your guests' repertoire. For example, steak is popular as a meat dish, and for fish dishes you can go for high-quality shrimp or other popular fish species.
Whether it's a fine mousse, ice cream topped with walnuts and a homemade raspberry sauce, chocolate strawberries or a cake in the shape of a heart, the kitchen team can get creative with dessert. Don't forget to drape the food attractively and decorate the tables appropriately.
What is important on Valentine's Day for the restaurant industry?
In addition to the culinary Valentine's Day menu conjured up by the kitchen team, romance also requires the right music on the day of lovers. When it comes to music, feel free to choose something soft that can easily be heard in the background and emphasizes the romantic mood. Of course, you can also rely on live music or incorporate other event ideas. The venue should also be atmospherically decorated and shine completely in the sign of love.
Tip: On Valentine's Day, it's best to work with table reservations so you can plan the amount of food and arrange seating. This will save you the stress of having to cater for more unannounced couples in the evening, and you won't get into the predicament of having to expand the food on offer.
What decorations to match the Valentine's Day menu?
Valentine's Day is all about love. Hearts in various shapes and sizes as well as the color red are emblematic for this day and should be reflected especially in the decoration. For example, go for red tablecloths or classic white models that you set the scene with red accents - for example, with napkins or other decorations.
And what would a romantic evening be without candles? Place several small tea lights or a few larger candles on the table. LED candles are also a good choice here, as they minimize the risk of fire while still retaining the typical candle flicker.
Not to be forgotten on the table are, of course, flowers. Here you have the choice between small bouquets and individual flowers in small vases on the table. You can also spread flowers on the tables. Suitable flowers are of course roses, but also other flowers like tulips or lilies do well. They awaken spring feelings and are a welcome change from the classic red rose.
Napkins: The eye-catcher on the table
Napkins are wonderful for setting accents on the romantic table. Whether with a pattern, plain, made of paper or fabric: there are no limits to your creativity when it comes to choosing napkins.
At the same time, napkins don't just have to lie lovelessly next to the plate. Instead, fold a heart or try out other folding techniques. At Duni you will find exciting napkin folding techniques that you can conjure up quickly and easily, even for several guests.
Conclusion: In the Name of Love!
If you want to offer your guests an unforgettable Valentine's Day menu, it's not only the food that counts, but also the ambience. You can create a romantic atmosphere, for example, with real wax or LED candles and quiet music in the background.
You can decorate the table with a tablecloth and matching napkins. A special eye-catcher are napkins that have been folded into hearts or other shapes, for example. A flower arrangement or individual flowers round off the table decoration. Thus, you combine a beautiful menu with romantic ambience on Valentine's Day, which your guests will not forget so quickly.
