Most people are under the impression that the only right way to spend Valentine’s Day is with an elaborate date night dinner at a restaurant that only takes reservations. While this may be ideal for some, these expectations bring a lot of pressure and stress, making it hard to enjoy what was supposed to be a day filled with love and adoration.
Instead of stressing over Valentine’s Day plans, find the magic at home with a delicious meal!
Staying in not only presents an opportunity to save money but also creates a much more comfortable atmosphere to share with your special someone. It’s much easier to connect and focus on your sweetheart in a place you know rather than in a place filled with people you have never met before.
When you celebrate Valentine’s Day at home, you can spend more time with the person you love in a way that is much more authentic to you. And you can still get dolled up for the occasion!
Are you ready to toss some rose petals, light a few candles, and enjoy each other’s company over a dinner made with love? Let’s get cooking!
Table & Thyme has been creating elevated experiences with our artisanal menus since 2019, and this Valentine’s Day is no different.

The main element for the evening of fine dining should be a full-bodied and flavorful protein. For an occasion such as Valentine’s Day, chicken makes for the perfect choice. That is because it’s incredibly versatile and can easily be personalized to satisfy any flavor palette.
It is also because of its unique density.
Chicken is a light protein that is less likely to bring about post-meal-sluggishness, yet still leaves you feeling full and satiated.
