Easy Feasts: A Valentine’s Day Menu

Easy Valentine's day menu by Pretty Mayhem

Easy Feasts is a new feature in which I’ll be sharing easy menu ideas for dinner parties. Today we’re planning a simple feast for Valentine’s Day!


Although we both love eating out, Mark and I rarely eat at a restaurant on Valentine’s Day. This is partly because we’re always way too late to book a table anywhere nice, but also because I can’t really be bothered with having time limits put on my meal and being stuck in a room full of other couples. So most years we end up having a romantic meal at home instead. I usually make up my own ‘Valentine’s Day’ menu, put out some flowers and candles…and before we know it it feels like we’re in our private room in a fancy restaurant. Minus the hefty price tag :)

If you’re planning on staying in too and are looking for a Valentine’s Day dinner menu, here is one that I think would fit the bill very nicely. All the dishes are very easy to prepare and you can even make your dessert ahead of time. For an extra decorating touch you could also download the pretty menu my friend Jo designed for us!

Have a wonderful Valentine’s day!
