Whenever you want to prepare a romantic meal, there are a lot of things to think about. It’s not just about the good food, although it is the most important part; you need to think about the atmosphere, about setting the mood and all the other things. We are bringing you 5 amazing ideas that guarantee you a successful romantic meal.
1. The Introduction
Let’s say you want to prepare a romantic meal for your boyfriend or your husband. It would be a great idea to make a small introduction into the evening that he should be expecting.
For example, you’re preparing a romantic dinner while he’s at work, you can text him something like “I’m preparing a special treat for you tonight, come home soon”. The whole point is to tease him the whole day so that he wishes to come home as soon as possible to see what you are preparing. Send him a couple of text messages, maybe even a multimedia message of the food you’re preparing or the dress you’re planning to wear. On the other hand, don’t give away too much, leave something for his imagination.
2. Set the Mood
The second most important thing about a romantic meal, right after the food itself, is the atmosphere. We all know a recipe for a romantic atmosphere – dim the lights, light up a couple of scented candles, put some soft music on. That’s pretty much enough, try not to overdo it, you don’t want your dining room to look like a brothel. Make sure you finish all the preparations before your husband comes home, so that you can both enjoy the meal and each other’s company.
3. Take Care of Yourself
You need to prepare yourself for having a romantic meal too. You can’t cook all that great food, set up a romantic mood and then greet your husband in a sweat shirt. Take care of yourself.
Put your best dress on and combine it with a nice pair of shoes. You can’t wear a dress and slippers after all. You want not only to look sexy, but also to feel sexy – put on your best lingerie, because even though it can’t be seen, just knowing that you’re wearing it will make you feel a lot sexier.
Put on same make up and some good jewelry. Do your hair and your nails. Prepare yourself like you were going out to some really fancy dinner. Show your husband that you care, not only about preparing a good meal, but also about how you look. He will surely appreciate it and you will feel amazing.
4. The Food
And now we’ve came to the most important part of your romantic meal – the food. It would be a good idea to prepare a complete meal, with a light appetizer, a tasty main course and a delicious dessert. It’s better to make it all light, so that you both can try all three courses and you don’t want to feel like a blown up balloon after you’ve spent all day preparing a romantic meal.
Remember that complicated things aren’t always the best, after all, no dessert can top fresh strawberries dipped in melted chocolate, right?
5. The Drinks
Every good meal is accompanied by good drinks, so make sure to add some romantic drinks into the mix of your romantic meal. Choose your drinks both depending on what you like and on what you are cooking.
Chicken, fish or generally white meat for main course, calls for some nice white wine. On the other hand, if you are preparing beef or pork or any stronger meal, red wine goes better with it. Of course, you can never be wrong with some champagne, either at the beginning of your dinner, or at the end, over dessert.
Whichever drink you choose, make sure not to have too much of it, because there’s nothing romantic or sexy about either of you being wasted. If you don’t drink alcohol, choose a simple sparkling water, root beer or ginger ale or make a non-alcoholic cocktail.
Now you have 5 basic things you need to know about making a romantic meal. Remember them, use them and make a romantic meal every now and then. It’s not only about the food; it is also a great way to revive that old passion between you and your partner.
