A Champagne Lunch?

Dianna’s question for me today; In the spirit of Valentine’s, what is your favourite location for a champagne lunch?

Well, I haven’t really had much romance in my life so I can’t say that I have a favourite location for any type of romantic situation, but if there is one thing I am good at it is setting the scene.

I have to say I’m not actually a very fussy person. I have always personally believed that romance is not the scene/setting, but the company and how the time is spent together.

Also, I strongly believe that romance is all about interpretation; one person may conjure candlelight, roses, soft music, and dinner in a secluded room, or even a busy restaurant, another person may think that a day at a funfair is romantic, sitting on a bench eating fish and chips.

So, with all that in mind, and pretending for the slightest moment that I have wonderful company to share a champagne dinner with . . . . I shall set some scenes that I might find to be a romantic situation.

Outdoors; a park, or field. A picnic under a blossom tree – I happen to find them very beautiful – late on a summer afternoon, watching the sunset. Cliché? Perhaps, but I’m fantasising here.

Outdoors; the back garden, or a hotel balcony. Sitting outside, somewhere private, with the stars above – I’m a bit of a night owl. I much prefer the night to the day.

Indoors: your home. I think this is pretty self explanatory, but yes, a romantic meal at home is also a nice idea.

Indoors: I love the theatre. It is a very magical and well, spiritual place for me. So, champagne dinner and a show. A little straight forward, but watching a love story on stage, and then spending time with someone special afterwards – or before hand – is still romantic, at least to me.

I think I could go on, but really it is the effort and thought put in to romantic plans that make them so special.
Well, I know I want be getting a champagne dinner this year, but I hope you all have a lovely Valentine’s day, and that you remember that love should be celebrated every day, not just Feb 14th.
