Romantic Valentine's Day at home. Need suggestions, please.

Christina D | Jan 30, 2004 11:27 AM

My husband and I are shipping the kiddies off to the grandparents on Valentine's Day and will have the whole house to ourselves for the night. I'd like to come up with a little "picnic" to share in front of the fire. I initially thought of an array of hors d'oeuvres (caviar, cheeses, smoked salmon, etc.) along with a spectacular bottle of wine, of course.

I really don't want to spend the evening cooking and cleaning up, hence the idea to make an evening of lots of little snacks.

My problem is that as I look through catalogs to get ideas (Dean & Deluca, Mackenzie, etc.), I'm picking probably one of everything. Any suggestions for a nicely balanced, romantic selection of snacks for two?
