How to Create a Romantic, Candlelit
Dinner without Turning the Stove On
You don't have to be a great cook to impress your significant other with a fantastic
meal. Even people who love cooking and happen to be skilled at it, may not want to
spend the night in a hot, steamy kitchen, right before hosting a romantic, stay-at-home
dinner. Following is everything you need to know about staging an incredible meal,
without every having to turn your oven on.
Start by creating the right indoor ambiance. Clean it up, use the dimmer switches to
create a soft glow and set a target area for your meal. Select a color scheme that is
soothing as well. Fig-colored cloths with cream candles are visually alluring. You an also
opt for warmer, richer hues. Be cognizant of how different decorative elements shape
and set the tone.
It is a good idea to have at least one thing cooking in order to produce the aroma of
something enticing. This, however, can be a simple as warming up some dinner rolls or
reheating a bakery-made pastry. In fact, you can even light scented candles that smell
just like baked goods. There are countless candles that smell like frost sugar cookies or
warm muffins. The olfactory system is important to consider when attempting to have a
strategic impact on your loved one's mood.
Decide where you want to host your meal. If it is warm outdoors, think about setting a
small table set out on the patio or porch. You can always dine at a formal, indoor table,
but changing things up a bit will make the occasion more memorable. On cold and rainy
days, try setting out a blanket for an indoor picnic.
The next step in these efforts is to select your menu. Given that you won't be doing the
cooking, you don't have to have a lot of time for these preparations. Try ordering a hot,
ready-made meal or a prepared picnic basket. Make sure to choose foods that can be
eaten casually with the hands or carefully fed to one another.
A gourmet food hamper is the ideal addition to this event. It will have everything that
you need for a sumptuous event, including a tablecloth, wine glasses and wine, a
selection of meats and cheese and various types of olives. Cleanup will be minimal and
you can spend the majority of your time getting dressed for your date, creating the
right indoor environment and achieving a heightened state of relaxation. Best of all,
cleanup will be quick and easy.
