Mommy blogger Dana Peller has some fun dating ideas for Valentine's Day. She submitted the following story.

Don’t just give candy and flowers this Valentine’s Day! Here are some great ideas to get out and experience the holiday as a couple or with your favorite Valentine right here in South Florida!


What could be more romantic than enjoying delectable melted chocolate fondue in a cozy booth with your love this Valentine’s Day?

I have always assimilated The Melting Pot with romance – there’s something about the ambiance and the food!

If you’re looking to celebrate with your BFFs for "Galentine’s Day," visit the Melting Pot on February 21st for a special "Galentine’s Day" menu!

Both the Palm Beach Gardens and Boca Raton locations are offering special chef-inspired features for the holiday menus. I can’t wait!

Check out their website http://www.meltingpot.com to book your reservation and get excited for a delicious evening!


Unleash your inner florist with your Valentine or "Galentine" this holiday at one of Miami Flower Market’s floral design classes! How many times do you pick up a bouquet of flowers to brighten up your home, to only plop them into a vase with water?

Rene Blanco, their Master Designer, will lead you with each class focusing on a flower or plant arrangement style, or current trend. The Miami Flower District offers about 8 classes per month and you definitely do not have to have a background in floral design. Check out their class schedule online at http://www.miamiflowermarket.com.

Classes range in price from $30 – $60, with group pricing available! They also offer some great Valentine’s flower specials starting at $65.

But wait! If you book a class TODAY (February 7th) use the discount code “Vday10” and receive 10% discount! Book between February 8 – February 11 and use the discount code “Vday5” for a 5% discount.

Miami Flower Market is a flower wholesaler dedicated to providing the freshest and most beautiful flowers South Florida has to offer. They have everything you need to #BeTheFlorist and also deliver fresh blossoms daily!


If your Valentine or "Galentine" is a tennis fan, you should consider attending the Delray Beach Open! This ATP World Tour 250 series men’s professional tennis tournament is held every year at the Delray Tennis Center.

The event itself runs from February 15 – 24, with special events such as:

* Multiple dining events

* Networking events

* VIP reception

* Box Series Holders’ Reception

* Chamber Bash

* Ladies Luncheon

* Amateur tennis events (i.e. Legends Clinis, Pro-Ams, etc.)
