A Valentine’s Day Dream on the Oregon Coast
The harsh winds of February on the coast have us cozying up in our homes and wishing away gray skies. As Valentine’s day approaches we are blending bold colors with savory appetizers that will leave your hearts and homes glowing.
Step out of the classic pink and red Valentine’s box and opt for unique colors as you set your table with these gorgeous photos from @pacoandbetty. We like to pair a honey colored napkin atop a warm tone tablecloth with romantic florals and gold accents.
La Vie en Rose
Your guests will see life through rose colored lenses after a few sips of our sparkling Valentine’s cocktail. from @tularosaflowers Infused with the vivid flavor of rose petals and your choice of sparkling wine it will be the perfect companion for your savory feast.
This year we suggest preparing a simple yet thoughtful appetizer menu in place of a main course. Less time spent over the stove means more time to share with the ones you love.
Whether you are planning a night in for two or a gathering of friends, a dazzling cheese and charcuterie board never fails. Fill your board with an assortment of Tillamook cheeses, fresh herbs, nuts, spreads, dried fruits and olives. Our simple beet stained apples will add a lovely dash of color to just about any platter you choose.
For a flavorful small bite we recommend our roasted sweet potato rounds topped with Feta, balsamic, walnuts, cranberries and mint. Sure to be a crowd pleaser while being a light bite full of flavor.
A romantic menu on the coast would not be complete without fresh oysters. Locally sourced and easily prepared, oysters are a natural aphrodisiac. Charm the table with our classic Oysters, pairied with a simple mignonette and a beautiful salad topped with hard boiled quail eggs.
For another memorable Valentine’s treat top mini pancakes with pomegranate arils and whipped honey goat cheese.
With these easy and simple appetizer ideas we hope your Valentine’s Day will be coming up with a bed roses!
