You can create the perfect Valentine’s Day, without venturing out in the cold night or making a reservation.
Picture yourself and your partner at a candlelit dinner for two, homemade with love. Plan the perfect night in with our beautifully arranged flowers available at every price point, a Caspari greeting card that captures your love story, and the ingredients to make this romantic meal for two.
The Main Course
Feel the sizzle in the air. We’re talking about the meat, of course! Impress that special someone with this savory Beef Wellington recipe from Jessica Gavin. Dijon mustard-brushed filet mignon is individually wrapped in prosciutto that’s covered with a mushroom filling, and then wrapped again in a blanket of golden brown crispy puff pastry. Finally, a mushroom red wine sauce made with the steak’s drippings is drizzled on top.
Why not start the meal with a nice salad? We prepare a variety of fresh-cut green salads, including Caesar and Mesclun with our house dijon vinaigrette. If you prefer to make at home, pick up the fixings to make this classic Caesar from Bon Appétit.
No dinner experience is complete without sides. That’s why we carry seasoned, oven-ready asparagus made in-house, an ideal side for Beef Wellington. Our asparagus is delicious as-is, but if you’re looking for a Hollandaise to top, this recipe from Julia Childs on Genius Kitchen should do the trick.
Set the mood by serving your favorite wine or classic spirit. We carry Veuve Clicquot, Moët, and Perrier-Jouët in full, half bottles, and splits. Or, choose from our great selection of whites and reds. Not sure which wine to choose? Consult this guide to find the perfect wine pairing for your meal.
Finish the evening with sweets for your sweetheart. Why not cozy up together by sharing a box of chocolate? Here you can find goodies from Harbor Sweets, Lake Champlain Chocolates, and Vermont Nut Free Chocolates.
If you’re looking for a dessert with a beautiful presentation, try our own hand-dipped chocolate-covered strawberries. We also offer Konditor Meister mini chocolate ganache cakes and petite fours elaborately decorated for Valentine’s Day.
No host, waiter, or line needed, just you and your Valentine sharing an intimate meal for two. We can’t think of a better way to spend the holiday.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
