Valentine’s Day & All Things Weddings!

Whether you love it or can’t stand it, Valentine’s Day will be approaching, and the New Year is now in full swing!  And whether you have this Valentine’s Day planned or not, one of the things you’re probably thinking about is what to get your partner this year.  With so many options out there, it can be hard to decide.  DeCarlo’s Banquet Center is here to help you this year!


If all you’re thinking about is your wedding this year, DeCarlo’s wants to thank you for considering our local wedding catering services to help celebrate your special occasion.  Since 1969, we have proudly served the community by hosting weddings, anniversaries, graduations and other special occasions.  Yet, even though our values are based on a long-standing tradition, we know how important it is to stay relevant to current trends.


Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas?


For the most part, Valentine’s Day is a day to let your loved one know how much you love them.  Many people will send out greeting cards, letters, and flowers.  Couples will celebrate by making a homecooked meal for two, reserving a room at a hotel and even tickets to see a show.  Though, when it’s all said-and-done, there are plenty of gift ideas that will surely brighten your partner’s day.


Some of the most common Valentine’s Day gift ideas could include:

  • A Bottle of Fine Wine
  • Candles
  • Candy
  • Champagne / Sparkling Wine
  • Chocolates
  • Fancy Evening at a Restaurant
  • Flowers
  • Golf Outing
  • Jewelry
  • Lingerie
  • Matching Pajama Set
  • A Night at a Fancy Downtown Hotel
  • Picture Collage
  • Spa Package


The majority of hotels and restaurants will offer special packages and deals for this time of year.  These can include anything from a table reservation to an afternoon Shiatsu massage!


Are You Planning a Wedding This Year?


Are you and your partner engaged to be married this year?  And with Valentine’s Day around the corner, are you thinking about what you might give to your future forever person?  DeCarlo’s wants to help you out with that special gift with a few ideas of our own:


Keepsake Box:  Make it from scratch, get it engraved, or buy a store-bought box and personalize it!  A keepsake box stores all your precious, sentimental items from over the years in one space.  Plus, you can arrange the gifts yourself!  Each partner agrees to get a nice keepsake box.  From there, each partner decides what to put in the box.  But that’s all kept a secret until you open it together on Valentine’s Day!  Have a relative or a friend put all your items into the box for you to open on the day, so you don’t know who got what.


Surprise, Surprise:  From the wedding planning to all the catering menu options, it’s a rare time of the year for surprising each other, not to mention romance.  After months of number-crunching spreadsheets and taste testing, it’s evident (even for your spouse-to-be) that wedding planning is fairly unromantic.


This is why we suggest surprising each other with a special gift this Valentine’s Day!  Since a ton of your time, effort, and frankly, money, is going into your wedding, it could come as a no-brainer to skip out on Valentine’s Day to save up.  But surprises can include just about anything!  What do you think they’re likely not expecting from you this year?
