Valentine’s Day is only a few days away, and you’re probably looking for the best places for a V-day date. Unfortunately, though, you’re not the only one who’s looking! But there is one place no one can steal from you, and that is your home. The best thing about it? A romantic dinner date at home can be more sincere and less expensive than eating out!
Stop dilly-dallying and take notes on how to get ready for your special romantic dinner date!
If you haven’t had the even slightest clue on how to prep your home for an intimate dinner, then you are on the right page. If you already have something in mind, you can still get some new creative tips!
1. Make a plan.
The first thing that you need to do is to decide where to have your dinner set up! It can be held in the dining room, family room, patio, balcony, enclosed porch or even in a gazebo – if you have one. Second on the list is dinner. You can prepare a special menu for the occasion: check out this special Valentine’s Day dinner recipes for ideas or, if you’re not one to cook, you can also have your favorite dishes delivered, serve and decorate at home. Next up: decorations! Do you want to have hearts all over? You can make a hanging flower heart, heart-shaped streamers, or even just buy some heart shaped candles to brighten up the place.
Are you exchanging gifts this time? Then it’s time to think about what your loved one will be smitten about. Jewelry is a no-brainer but you can also go the creative route and make something like a heart-shaped locket or pillow, buy them something they’d wanted to for a while, or maybe even something that refers to a joke only the two of you will get!
2. Set the mood.
As cliche as it may seem to some people, nothing speaks romance better than a candle-lit dinner and flower centerpieces. Tell you’re significant other to dress up to the nines and use the fancy dishes you keep for special occasions! Make a playlist of your favorite love songs to play in the background while you dine and be sure to include the songs that you’d love to slow-dance with them after dinner. Just make sure to have some space cleared out to use as a dance floor and enjoy every beat of that special song with your loved one.
3. Create a romantic ambiance.
To create a sweet romantic setting for your dinner, amaze your partner with the sweet smell of a special meal as slow, sultry music envelops the air. Lit a sweet smelling candle or burn some incense to make sure the ambiance feels special and even try feeding one another’s dinner. Take some cheesy selfies and indulge at the moment, whether that is cuddled up in a sofa watching a movie bundled up after a delicious meal or dancing to your favorite songs and you will surely have a wonderful date to remember.
So there you have it! Having a wonderful Valentine’s Day date doesn’t have to mean spending a lot of money at a crowded restaurant, it can be an intimate, just the two of you dinner at home with your favorite things and your favorite person!
