While there are surely many ways a romantic dinner could be enjoyed outdoors, there is certainly nothing wrong with planning a romantic dinner at home. For one, you get to have a romantic time in your space and surely can make good use of the evening without having to go out. But even though you will be dining at home, you certainly want to make it one that you both will remember as long as you are together.
While I hope there will be more romantic dinner dates to follow, I have below some ideas to help you plan a romantic date at home.
You surely will have to invite your date to come along with you for the romantic dinner. And even though you live together, you still want to think about how you want to go about the invite. Of course, a text message saying “meet me at home tonight for a romantic dinner” will surely look like enough to set the ball rolling, but there are ways to include a romantic twist to it.
You could get creative and make a digital invite using graphic design tools and send it straight to your bae’s email. You could also think to make a special dinner date card and have it printed or sent to you. Then leave it on the bedside for when your partner wakes up to let them know that you will be treating them to a romantic dinner later in the day.
What’s For Dinner?
A romantic dinner will surely be incomplete without a meal. And even if you do plan to get takeaway delivered to your home, you want to give serious thought to what you will be eating. While you can find many romantic dinner recipes online that you can make, there is nothing wrong with sticking to what you are used to. Although this may be a good opportunity to try something new, you want to make sure to cook a meal that you are great at.
You certainly will lose points if the meal is not specially made. And if you are not sure you can pull off a rabbit from the hat when it comes to cooking for a romantic dinner, you want to leave it for the experts. You can always order from a restaurant and set the table for when the meal arrives.
Setting The Mood
You will need to set the mood right in the area of the house where you plan to have the dinner date. This could be the dining room, patio, bedroom, or any other part of the house that catches your fancy. You should do well to have it decorated with candles and fancy lighting that will surely set the ambiance for something romantic.
Having flowers delivered for your partner will also score some points in your favor. There is also the option to have slow jams playing on the stereo or on a portable music box which will surely assist in setting up the mood for romance. You get the chance to be creative here, so you want to put in the effort to get it right.
Don’t Forget About Drinks
A romantic dinner for two will not be complete without having the right drinks to go with. And you surely want to make sure to pick a bottle that will just be ideal to set the mood for romance. Ideally, you should be looking at a bottle of wine that could either be white or red depending on your preference.
If you will be adding meat to the meal, a bottle of red wine will just be ideal to go with. If you are considering a vegan meal, white wine could do an excellent job to go with the greens. Still, you want to make sure to pick more than one bottle as you can never predict how the night will go, so you want to make sure there is just the right amount of alcohol to go around.

Even though you will be dining indoors, part of setting the mood right will require that you dress for your date. And as such, you don’t want to give any excuses why you aren’t looking your best for your partner. So do well to get out your best suit and ladies should get into their most treasured dinner gown if they want to make the night one worth remembering.
Planning a romantic dinner at home isn’t always easy as you will likely not be sure of how to go about setting the mood right. But the good thing is that you don’t have to try too hard. Ensure that you plan a special recipe, have drinks available, set the table to look like romance, and shower your partner with all the love and attention when it’s that time of the night.
