Cheap and Fun Valentine's Day Celebration

Since I have work today, we celebrated Valentine's Day in advance last Sunday at the farm.  Nothing fancy, nothing expensive, but it was loads of fun not to mention inexpensive.

We had a romantic picnic lunch at the small cabana my husband made.  It was sunny that day, so it was a perfect day for picnics.

I thought it was a nice idea for us to have lunch at the cabana.  I cleaned it up, spread the blanket, and placed some flowers and our picnic basket.  It was so cozy, laid back, and spontaneous.

I went ahead and picked some flowers at my mom's garden.  No roses in sight, so I got some double-petaled hibiscus instead.  They look like large roses.

The husband was in charge of the food.  He grilled some liempo.  It was delicious!

I packed the picnic basket before hand with glasses, plates, utensils, and drinks.  If we forgot something we need, we just run back to my mom's house (which was so conveniently near) and get it (hehehe!).

Once food was cooked, we picked some calamansi at the garden for the liempo.  I then set the table.  Lunch was good.  It was simple.  We had steamed rice and liempo.  We did not even bother to use the spoons and forks I brought.  We ate with our bare hands.  Not so sosyal, I know! Hahaha!  I would not recommend doing that on a first date :)

It was fun.  With a little effort, it was a great experience.  We enjoyed each others company and even brought the two dogs along and played with them after lunch.

Celebrating Valentine's Day does not have to be expensive or over the top.  What matters most is you get to spend it with the one you love.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Have a good one!
