Romantic Night In Tips & Ideas

  • No uninvited guests. That includes electronic distractions of all sorts, so be sure the phones are muted, and turn off the TV and computers. You know to get a sitter for the kids, but if your pets tend to be needy, consider arranging a slumber party for them with a friend or family member.
  • Go the extra mile. The key to making a night in feel special is pulling out all the stops. Dress up like you’re heading to a five-star restaurant. Hardly ever use the nice dishes or the formal dining room? Now’s the time! Or if the weather cooperates, try a picnic under the stars. Light plenty of candles, and play soft, romantic music.
  • Keep it smooth. Nothing ruins the mood faster than a stressful, frenzied meal! Earlier in the day, make your chocolate mousse to chill in the fridge, and prep all the main course ingredients. To kick off your date, cook your scallops and enjoy as an appetizer together while they’re piping hot. Then, while the artichoke hearts roast, dazzle your guest of honor with your sautéeing skills as you make the steak and mushrooms.

The stage is set for a wonderful night with your special someone, so enjoy!
