On Valentine's Day everyone wants to do that something special for their loved one. Many people hit the stores and load up on candy, flowers, and stuffed animals. While this works for some it can tend to cost a lot of money and not necessarily have the desired affect. One thing that never fails to deliver the romance is an intimate dinner for two.

There are many different ways to have a romantic dinner for two. Many people go with the expensive fancy restaurant but even that has its flaws. The service can be bad, it can be too loud, or you can feel like it you don't have any privacy if the place is crowded. The best way to do it is a nice, private, and quiet place where the two of you can just enjoy each other with no distractions.

A good way to do this is to have a picnic. A romantic picnic can allow you to enjoy nature while having alone time. A picnic is only viable if the weather allows for it though. Also insects may show up and make enjoying yourselves difficult.

The best way to have an intimate dinner is to stay at home. Put forth the effort to decorate the place with candles, rose pedals, or anything that your partner will enjoy. That way you can control the environment and not have any negative interference.

In order to devote most of your time getting the setting perfect have an experienced caterer make your dinner so you know it will make the night perfect. Portland Catering Company is your local Portland special event catering service. We can provide catering services, including ready-to-go meals for all of your special occasions, including that intimate Valentine's Day dinner for two.

Hiring a caterer for your event requires a lot of consideration. Not only do you need to find a caterer that you can rely on, you have to find one with a pleasant food menu. Relaying your needs to a caterer will help to find if they are the right ones for you. This can be difficult if you are unsure of exactly what your needs are. Caterers have three ways of performing there services at your event.iStock 000019803250XSmall

The first is No-Service catering. With this style caterers have the least involvement with your event. The food for your event is either picked up or dropped off. It comes in disposable containers so there won't be any clean up and will come with plastic utensils.

The second is Partial-Service catering. This style of catering provides more involvement from the caterer but not by much. They normally will set up a buffet complete with some table decorations and silverware. After they finish with the set-up they will leave for the duration of your event. Once the event is over the catering staff will return to the location in order to collect their supplies and clean.

The third is Full-Service catering. Like Partial-Service the caterers will set-up and clean the event. In addition though if it is not a buffet they will act as waiters delivering food dishes and picking up dirty dishes. If it is a buffet setting they will have attendants to explain what the dishes are and help to dish up food onto plates.

Portland Catering Company can provide you with any level of service required for your event. Just contact us and let us know what you need.

They should also be very polite the entire time and have smiles while interacting with people.
