Feb 12, 2018 10:53AM ● By Ashley Madonna

Is it just us or did Valentine’s Day creep up on us this year? If you still haven’t finalized your Wednesday plans, you’re still in luck. There’s still time to pull off a beautiful evening for your special someone. Here are a few tips if you are planning Valentine’s Day in a pinch.

Stay Flexible

Instead of sticking to a specific time, stay flexible when looking for reservations. It’s no surprise that lots of local couples fight over popular dinner slots on Valentine’s Day. So start out your hunt by looking for earlier or later reservations. You can plan different activities that will keep your night lively. Whether it be grabbing a movie earlier on or stopping for dessert on your way home, your night can feel full with an early or late dinner time.

Use Your Resources

Shockingly, there are still lots of reservations out there just waiting to be filled. You just need to know your resources. Jump on OpenTable, a restaurant reservation website and app, to get a feel for different options. They book tables at all of your favorite local eateries like BRIO Tuscan GrilleTruFire Kitchen & BarRA Sushi and Del Frisco’s Grille Southlake. Plus, app users are rewarded for using the site, so you can get points for each table you reserve.

Get Creative

If you don’t want to deal with reservations, choose to go a more creative route. Plan an exciting night at home full of great food and great conversation. You don’t need to go out to enjoy beautiful entrees. By going grocery shopping together, selecting the right ingredients together and coming home to create extravagant dishes together, you can spend more quality time together making for a romantic evening.
