With cold weather setting in and dining restrictions still in place, Valentine's Day is bound to look a little different this year. But one innovative event planning company found a way to bring an incredibly romantic night out on the town into the comfort of your home.
Luxury dinner party delivery program Celebrationhome created two dining experiences for the February 14 holiday: Valentine's Day, An Interactive Delight, and Valentine's Day Forget the Forks. While all the meals are meant to have elements of surprise, you can expect to have chef-prepared ingredients, activities, table settings, and a soundtrack, plus guided cooking instructions for each dish.
With the Interactive Delight, you'll get a meal that includes aphrodisiac ingredients like pistachio, figs, chocolate, saffron, and oysters, and all topped off with a chocolate fondue. The Forget the Forks is a bit more of a classic experience complete with Champagne, cote de boeuf for two, and chocolate souffle.
While these two experiences were crafted specifically for Valentine's Day, the company offers various luxe meal delivery options all year round. You can choose from an upscale game night, a St. Moritz après ski experience, a plant-based option, and a taste of New York City. All of the boxes come with everything you'd need for an immersive evening at home, from the cocktails and ingredients to the interactive components. The goal is for all five senses to be engaged. Plus, you can have the meal delivered for two people up to ten.
The idea for a unique offering came about over the summer when two of the most prominent event and culinary designers, Jennifer Zabinski and Olivier Cheng, created Destination:Hamptons. They would deliver destination-based dinners to the beach residents since vacations abroad were on hold. The business became so popular, they've since expanded it to all five boroughs, Westchester, Long Island, Hudson Valley, and more.
Prices for the boxes range with the Valentine's Day box starting at $500 for a pair up to $3,450 for 10.
