date night dinner themes
Sometimes the best dates happen at home where you and your partner stay in for a home cooked meal on a set of beautiful dinnerware and a romantic ambiance that you've personally set up to make the night perfect. In an effort to avoid having too much of a routine in your relationship, it's a great idea to create date night themes similar to a few we'll go over here. Whatever you decide for your themed date night, keep in mind that food is always a great thing to share and indulge in together after a long and stressful day at the office.
Now that spring has sprung, stake out a warm evening to picnic in the park, on your patio, or even in your backyard to share a beautiful sunset feast. Being outdoors for a date always provides a refreshing feeling and will keep you energized throughout the quality time you spend with your partner. Pack up a basket filled with your favorite wine, a mix of artisinal cheese and complementary fruits, pates and other delicious finger foods to share with each other.
There is nothing wrong with ordering in from your favorite Japanese restaurant and presenting a lovely spread of sushi, saki and other delicacies. Dim the lights, play a romantic play list, and gather a beautiful orchid or other exotic flowers to really set the tone. Serve on platters, use chop sticks and serve hot saki in elegant saki cups.
If the traditional dinner and a movie date night is more your style, use a favorite movie of yours to inspire your themed dinner and attire. Choose a romantic Spanish love story and dress up in a sexy outfit while serving paella or pick an action filled Western and serve up a rack of barbecued ribs from the grill. Flex your creative décor muscles as you create a beautiful tablescape for the event with candles (unscented of course) and flowers.
