We often associate date nights with lavish dinners in expensive restaurants and costly staycations in 5-star hotels. For many of us, this is a luxury we either can’t afford or physically not able to do so.

This however doesn’t mean you can’t still have romantic date nights. In fact, you should always treat you and your partner to well thought out time to yourselves, just to remind each other how important it is to keep the spark alive.

Stay at home date nights can be so much fun. You are truly only limited by your imagination. Whip up a gorgeous candle lit dinner completed by lovely napery, a special bottle of wine and some music to set the mood.

Cooking your partner, a beautiful meal is something very special and it would of course be incomplete without a sexy salad!

It’s so important to accompany your main fare with an equally well thought out salad. In this collection we have everything from blush pink beetroot cured salmon to delicate roasted purple Brussels sprouts.

Sexy salads for date night doesn’t only mean side salads. We have a great collection of fruit salads that can be turned into something quite spectacular.

How about a dark and moody black fruit salad with edible rose petals or a naughty plum wine infused dragon fruit salad with lime zest?

Don’t’ forget to dress up for the occasion, maybe make a cocktail or two to set the mood. It’s all about having a little fun at home and letting your partner know how much you appreciate them!
