Considering the impact of the global pandemic, it’s normal to feel skeptical about going out, even if you are fully vaccinated. But how can you keep the romance alive without leaving the house? There is no better way to spend quality time with your partner than enjoying a lovely meal together.
Whether your anniversary is coming up or you want to impress your new boo, let us help you go all out with a romantic at-home dinner date. Check out an all-telling guide that will leave your better half speechless.
Start with Cleaning & Decluttering
If you are having someone over for the first time, then you cannot welcome them to a cluttered home. Start by cleaning and tidying up the place. Use ProMist to clean your floors and make sure every surface is dust-free. And don’t forget about cleaning up the bathroom.
Set the Mood
The next step is sprucing up the place. With little effort, you can transform your living room into a fine-dining restaurant. Set up a table with a lovely tablecloth, candles, and a vase of fresh flowers. Bring out your fanciest dinnerware and silverware. Hang up fairy lights and dim the lights for the perfect ambiance.
Create a Scrumptious Menu
Thanks to food delivery services, you can get nearly every cuisine or dish delivered to your doorstep. Create a scrumptious menu with multiple courses. It would be best to schedule the delivery in advance to prevent any unexpected delays. Also, you should have a backup plan in place in case something goes wrong. You don’t want your date to starve!
If you enjoy cooking, then invite your date over to cook dinner together. It’s a fun way to get to know each other and also avoid the hassle of getting food delivered. To make things easier, get a meal kit with pre-measured ingredients and recipes.
Put your mixing skills to the test by welcoming your date with a freshly prepared cocktail. Set up a bar with mixers, shakers, ice, lemon wedges, and so on.
No Phones Allowed
It’s no secret that most of us are addicted to our phones. And this can keep you from truly connecting with each other. For your at-home date, make it a point not to use your phone. Going off the grid will help you relax and pay better attention.
Incorporate Fun Activities
Putting together a lovely dinner is a wonderful idea. But you can make it even better by incorporating some fun activities. Play a card game or participate in trivia for some friendly competition.
Rent a Projector
Watching a movie is a classic option that never goes out of style. But considering the current circumstances, going to a crowded movie theater can be uncomfortable. Why not recreate the experience at home? Rent a projector, pick your favorite movies and prepare a spread of movie snacks.
Attend a Live Event
Many artists are hosting live events such as concerts and stand-up shows that you can enjoy from the comforts of your home. You can also sign up for virtual activities such as a painting class.
Make a Fort
Bring out your inner child by making a fort with bedsheets and blankets. Hang up lights and play a bonfire video on your laptop for the ultimate cozy ambiance.
Does your partner love the outdoors? If you have a backyard, you can consider putting up a tent and camping.
You don’t have to leave your home and spend a ton of money to create a memorable and dreamy experience. Keep the spark alive with our at-home date night tips!
