Love Lockdown Date Night with Sanctuary Cove

6 April 2020

Love Lockdown Date Night is in order! As bars and restaurants close and self-isolation (or love lockdown as we like to call it) becomes the new norm, our ‘dinner and drinks’ date might be put on hold for the moment, but this doesn’t mean they have to stop completely. To get your home date night inspiration flowing, we’ve planned out the perfect night in to keep the romance alive!

The Outfit

Give your loungewear and terry towelling robe the night off and dress up like you are going out to your favourite restaurant! Treat yourself to a new outfit from Soho Girl, we’re loving the latest boho chic looks from Auguste the Label and Spell & The Gypsy Collective or put your best foot forward in Joseph Ribkoff from Sanctuary Resort Shoppe. For your face, you can’t go past the wine proof lipstick, LipSense available from Harry’s Emporium. Apply it once for a luscious look that will last all night!

The Table Setting

A well-set table can enhance your entire dining experience and take your home date night to the next level.  For a modern take on a classic table setting, choose white dinnerware with clean colour accents – subtle blue patterning is perfect for achieving a Hamptons vibe. For date night, we love the Coral Branching dinnerware from Hamptons Style. Set the mood and scent the room with a beautiful Voluspa Candle from Cabana. This season, we are lusting over the Voluspa candle in Milk Rose. Finally, napkins are a great, simple way to add texture and colour to your table setting. Perfect Décor’s Protea range in blue and white will add that little bit of fancy flair to your night!

The Food

You may be home, but it doesn’t mean you have to cook! Our restaurants at Sanctuary Cove are now offering takeaway options, with delivery available to Sanctuary Cove residents! Enjoy succulent Crab Tortellini from Artichoke, Slow Roast Duck from Dragon Cove, Scallopini Saltimbocca from Ioesco or Indo Fijian lamb curry and rice from Jonez on Food. Finish off your meal with melt-in-the-mouth traditional Aussie Pavlova from Georges Paragon!

The Drinks

No meal is complete without the matching wines! Start the evening by testing out your cocktail making skills for pre-dinner drinks. A simple Apple & Gin Cocktail is delicious and filled to the brim with cosy, warm Autumn flavours! When you are ready for your meal you can’t go past Corkers Cellars. The fine wine merchants will provide advice on the perfect drop to match your meal and if you’re having trouble deciding, you can’t go wrong with Charles Heidsieck Champagne!

Now sit back, relax and enjoy your Love Lockdown Date Night!
