I think it’s perfectly fine to indulge yourself with a glass of bubbly, a fabulous homemade dinner and anything else that you enjoy on Valentine’s Day. Just because you’re on your own doesn’t mean you shouldn’t celebrate! As a matter of fact, it’s important to pull out the stops!
“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” Charles M. Schulz
By now, you’ve shopped for cards, sent them to friends, picked up the roses and done some relaxing reading on the subject of love. The lead-up to the day should be really helpful. I think fully embracing the moment is key. Yes, I can also get pretty sentimental on a holiday like this, when I’m on my own. But that’s why facing it head-on is the best strategy, because either way, the holiday itself is unavoidable!
So, as the sun sets on the holiday, set a beautiful table, enjoy your meal and settle in for a fabulous film, like “Love Actually”, or “Something’s Gotta Give”. And be sure to raise that glass of bubbly and salute yourself for having had an unexpectedly fabulous holiday. That’s how to celebrate Valentine’s Day at “A Table For One”.
