Tips to Getting in Right
♥ Add a personal touch!
Make the moment more memorable with little personal touched. Homemade items like a valentines day card or adding a small bunch of fresh flowers can go a long way or making your gift even more special.
♥ Cleaning Up
With the surprise sprung and the meal served, make sure your meal includes cleaning up afterwards! Nothing spoils the moment more than having to do dirty dishes.
♥ Pour any liquids only 3/4 of the way
This is especially important with hot liquids as you don’t want them to spill onto the person or the bed linen when the tray is moved
♥ Planning the menu
Plan the menu ahead of time and get all the ingredients you will need before. That way you won’t be scrounging for ingredients and ideas in the morning. See down below for some ideas.
