If you are planning a romantic dinner for your partner, then you want to create a romantic space in your home that has the right feel to it. This way, the dinner will be a success and you will be able to create an evening your partner and you will remember for many years. You can learn how to put together a nice, romantic dinner by following some of the tips in this article.
Set the table to create a romantic space
When you are setting the table, you should use linens that help to add to the romance. Red is a common color associated with romance, so consider incorporating it into the décor by going with a red table cloth. You can accentuate the red with whites or blacks. The table cloth should be made of fabric, as should the napkins. Going with a plastic or vinyl tablecloth can take from the romance by cheapening the table setting.
Use the right candles
A romantic table can be created by adding the right candles to the setting. You should go with tall candles in crystal or silver candle holders. You also want to make sure you go with unscented candles. If you go with scented candles then you may choose a scent your partner isn't fond of, or the scent of the candles can mix with the smell of the dinner in a way that ends up being unpleasant.
Choose the right meal
You should put some extra thought into the dinner you prepare for a romantic evening. You want to stay away from foods that are hard to eat without getting them on your clothing, such as ribs. You also want to prepare something that isn't hard to eat so you can enjoy the meal and good conversation. An example of something hard to eat would be tough meat, like carne asada which tends to require a lot of chewing. Foods made with a lot of garlic can give you bad breath and foods with beans can leave you with flatulence. Pastas or chicken dishes are a couple examples of good meals for a romantic dinner.
Go to an Italian restaurant
If you aren't up for creating the right romantic setting yourself, then you may want to consider taking your partner to an Italian restaurant, such as Borrelli's. Italian restaurants can have the right amount of lighting and they often have some great music playing in the background. You do want to call ahead of time and make sure the restaurant is one that offers a romantic Italian setting, rather than a lively one.
These tips will help you to create a fantastic romantic dinner for your partner that the two of you will get a lot of enjoyment out of.
Finding the problems inside your restaurant isn't always easy, especially if you are close to your employees. However, a few years ago I could tell that things weren't going well, and that I needed to do more to improve food quality. I started carefully evaluating every aspect of my restaurant, and before I knew it, I found little changes that made a big difference. This blog is all about making your restaurant a little bit better--one change at a time. You never know, the changed you make today might become the profits that you will make tomorrow.
