Another one of her tips is that you should take care of how the food looks on the plate.
Your partner will appreciate the effort you put into it.
For all the lovers who want to make a day out of their Valentine’s Day celebration, 24-year-old Midrand-based Leshego Maponya is the woman you will need in your corner.
Maponya owns and runs Dainty Picnics, providing picnic services to customers.
A year ago she started the business with a friend who is a qualified chef.
Customers can order a ready-to-go picnic basket packed with disposable cutlery and a bottle of sparkling wine and edible goodies for R500.
Next in her range is the set-up package, where she delivers a picnic set-up to you and you supply your own food.
The third option is for the set-up and food.
If you enjoy picnicking she suggests you head to Kyalami.
“My favourite at the moment is in Kyalami at the Beaulieu Bird Sanctuary. It seems very private.
“It’s a public park, it’s gated and is in a gated community as well,” she says.
But if you prefer an indoor picnic she suggests that you buy a bunch of roses and scatter the petals on your blankets to add a romantic mood.
“You can just close the curtains to make it dim and light a few small candles,” she adds.
Dube has supplied a quick recipe for the perfect breakfast in bed for your valentine, along with a pasta main and tasty dessert.
