Love Is in the Air!

February 10, 2016

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, which means it’s time to solidify plans and finalize details.

However, if you find yourself still brainstorming, hoping the perfect idea comes to you in a dream tonight, we have your solution! For the residents of ROSS’ apartments in Alexandria, VA, we’ve already mapped out four possible themes for a special evening to share with your loved one.

Admittedly, we’ve forgotten to include the most romantic theme of them all – an evening spent at home.

To some this may sound a little dull, but just imagine: your kids are at the sitters; you’re sitting there in the comfort of your own home, just the two of you; sipping your favorite wine, with no worries about a designated driver; listening to your favorite mood music, alone with your favorite person; and in case we forgot to mention it, THERE’S NO ONE ELSE AT HOME!!! Got it now? Hey, this evening could be so romantic Nicholas Sparks will write a chapter about it in his next book!

Still, there are a few things you’ll need to do to prepare. To make sure the residents of ROSS’ Alexandria apartments perfectly execute a romantic evening of this caliber, we’ve made a preparation list:

  1. Grocery Shopping – To make sure you have all of the ingredients for the perfect meal.
  2. Clean the Apartment – Set aside an hour or two before you begin meal-prep to really take the time to scrub the apartment.
  3. Decorate – The simple addition of a new tablecloth, matching napkins, candles and flowers can really help to transform your apartment into a rendezvous.
  4. Meal-Prep – Try to make as much of the meal as you can ahead of time, so that when the romantic evening comes, you have time to dedicate to each other and not cooking.
  5. Dinner – When serving dinner, insist that your date never get up, then make sure their glass is always full, they have everything they need and you clear their dishes for them.
  6. Marinade – Just because the meal is over doesn’t mean the evening is as well. Stay at the table or move to the big, comfy couch, but take this time after the meal to connect with each other.

We have full confidence that you will execute an unforgettable romantic evening in an unforgettable apartment home. Take the first step on the road to romance by touring ROSS’ apartments in Alexandria, VA, today!
