4:39:00 AM

Many people tend to eat out at a restaurant when they wish to have a romantic dinner date. But, there are times where it’s just more relaxing and comfortable to dine at home - especially if both of you don’t feel much like travelling anywhere after a long day. The question is, how can you plan a memorable romantic meal at home?
Believe it or not, planning a romantic dinner date in the comfort of your home isn’t as complicated, confusing, or stressful as some people might think! Whether you’re planning an anniversary meal, celebrating Valentine’s Day, or fancy doing something nice for your significant other, here’s what you can do:

Tidy up the dining area

If you both typically keep your home clean and tidy, you can probably skip this step. But if you both lead busy lives and spend a lot of time at work, keeping your home in order might not be at the top of your to-do list when you get home each day! So, to that end, the first thing you must do is tidy up the dining area. That means clearing away any used plates, cutlery, glasses, and so forth leftover from a previous meal. It would be best if you also put away anything that makes the room look messy.

Decorate the dining area with romance in mind
A romantic dinner date often conjures up images in one’s mind of dimmed lighting and easy-listening music playing in the background. While those are two options you can explore to help set the mood; there are other romantic ideas you could pursue as well. For example, you could decorate the dining area with rose petals and have an assortment of scented candles lit. Other examples you might wish to consider include setting a tablecloth on your dining table and laying out cutlery and glasses ready for the evening’s proceedings.

Cook a delicious meal for two
A romantic meal for two isn’t complete without some food to eat! To that end, you should cook something that you will both enjoy such as a chicken biryani or perhaps a vegetarian pasta option such as fettuccine alfredo. Be sure to begin cooking your meal well in advance of your significant other’s arrival home. And don’t forget to prepare something equally delicious for dessert as well!

Go offline
The last thing you both want when having a romantic meal together is to get disturbed by social media notifications or people texting or ringing on your mobile phones. With that in mind, set your phones to airplane mode or even better, turn them off. That way, you can concentrate on enjoying each other’s company without any annoying distractions.

Don’t forget the wine
Lastly, if you’re both wine connoisseurs, it makes sense to splash out on a good bottle of wine that you can pre-chill before the meal. Of course, you could substitute the wine with something else if you’re both teetotalers!
