A romantic evening with your partner is pure quality time, These 10 ideas will tell you how to make the evening beautiful and memorable.
No matter if you are in love, have been together for years or already married – a romantic evening is important for any partnership. For a whole evening, you concentrate on the other and spoil your partner.
Why Make A Romantic evening
A successful romantic evening for two strengthens fresh relationships and can bring the butterflies in the belly in longer existing partnerships. Because it is exactly the opposite of everyday life!
Both partners must have the time and leisure to engage in a relaxed atmosphere. Therefore you should not plan the romantic evening if possible in stressful times. Then wait until the time is right, especially if you are planning something very special, such as a marriage proposal in the evening.
Important for the right mood is that most of the time you are only two. If you have children, organize a babysitter.
It is very romantic to surprise your partner with this idea! we all know surprise causes excitement in the best sense of the word and that’s the first ingredient for romantic feelings!
let’s dive into the 10 ideas to make the best romantic evening.
1. Seeing yourself in a different light … – candles, fairy lights, and dim lamps
Care for romantic lighting!
Romance is the most beautiful state of emergency that exists. A romantic atmosphere makes that everything is different than in everyday life and that starts with the lighting. Muted and soft light is perfect. The more festive and beautiful the lighting, the better!
Candles as lighting are for a good reason the absolutely classic and also unreservedly recommended. These can be, for example, noble narrow candles in beautiful candlesticks, decorative pillar candles or lanterns. Ultimately, it depends on the overall presentation: even with many tealights distributed in the room you can achieve a great effect.
If the pure candlelight is too dim or candles are out of the question, you can supplement or replace them with beautiful fairy lights. Also, screen lamps give off a nice warm, soft light and provide light and shadow play for a particularly romantic feeling.
2. Fragrance, flowers, and decoration – create the right atmosphere
You should also make the arrangement and decoration of the room in which you plan the romantic evening festive and extraordinary. Flowers are almost a must, they are not in vain considered language of love. It does not necessarily have to be a bunch of red roses. If you know your favorite flower (or secretly find out about someone else, if you have not known each other for so long), then get a bunch of it!
You can also scatter fragrant rose petals on the table and place water bowls with floating water lilies or decorate the room with flower chains. Your creativity knows no limits!
3. Play it again, Sam! – Care for romantic music
Nothing gets us in the mood as much as music. This is even more true for a romantic mood. If you play an instrument yourself, surprise your better half with a personal serenade.
If you’ve been together for a long time, it’s also a good idea to play songs from the time you first met. Otherwise, of course, the choice depends heavily on your taste in both kinds of music. It should be atmospheric, harmonic, calm music.
4. Challenge Your Partner To Dance
Those who master classical dance have a clear advantage over a romantic evening and can lead their partner stylishly to tango or waltz tunes on the living room parquet …
Inviting your partner to dance is just a very romantic gesture and even if you both can not dance, you’ll have something to laugh about.
5. Exquisite and Seductive: Food and Drinks
Do you know the favorite dish of your loved one? – Always a good choice, you can not go wrong! Otherwise, there should be something special, something unusual for dinner, which you rarely eat or have never tasted before.
Suitable are all dishes that are nobler and finer and look beautiful on the plate – the eye finally eats with. Even if, for example, a hearty beef stew can be delicious, a filet mignon with roast potatoes and asparagus is, therefore, the better alternative for a romantic evening.
If you do not like to cook, you can go out to dinner in a fancy restaurant. But then you should choose and book in good time and it should offer a dignified and quiet atmosphere. Or you can order finger food like sushi or tapas for a good takeout – since Sex and the City at the latest man/woman know that sushi and small treats are a great way to spend a romantic evening. (as long as you do not wait naked for sushi for hours with sushi …)
As a drink for a romantic evening for two, we also recommend fine wines, such as good wines, champagne, sparkling wine or delicious cocktails. Ultimately, it depends primarily on the taste.
6. Surprise Your Partner With A Fancy Gift!
Surprises are the A & O of romance!
Everything surprising, exciting, personal, new and different, makes for a heartbeat and romantic feelings. That’s why surprise your loved one with a fancy and as a personal gift as possible. For example, a framed photo of you two, a special memory of your last trip together, concert tickets for your favorite band, etc.
Should your romantic evening for two be the springboard for a marriage proposal? Then it’s clear what the big surprise will be.
7. Watch a romantic movie together
The power of (home) cinema is not to be underestimated! As well as music, movies also put us in a good mood and, of course, you can cuddle and stroke each other while watching a movie.
8. Treat Your Partner With A Massage Or Bubble Bath
The sensual part of the evening: if you have not already fallen on the dance floor or the TV couch on top of each other, seduce you with a sensual massage. Or prepare in the bathroom for everything before an erotic bubble bath with seductive scent, candlelight, and music.
9. Drive To A Romantic Place
If the weather is right: off to nature!
As a prelude or finale of your evening for two is a small surprise trip to a romantic place a great highlight!
Drive to a secluded spot in nature, a picturesque castle ruin, a lake or a place from which one has a great view and can admire the sunset or the stars together. Or you visit the place where you met or served the very first time!
If you plan this as a romantic finale, then book a taxi or even a limousine (especially stylish). First, you can then drink alcohol before and second, you can devote yourself to each other on the ride without distraction.
10. Do it Personally!
This tip applies to all previous points; the more individual and personal your ideas are, the better your romantic evening will become a couple! Because it shows your partner that you know him and that you have not only made a lot of effort but have chosen and planned everything specifically for him/her.
Whether you get your favorite flowers, cook your partner’s favorite food, play your song or decorate the table with sand and shells and photos of your last beach holiday together – it’s the personal details that make the romantic evening perfect.
A nice way, for example, is to prepare small personal messages for him/her; insiders who only understand her, favorite quotes or simply honest personal words. You can also make a small game of it, the romantic version of a scavenger hunt, so to speak: your partner has to interpret every message and find the next surprise. Especially if the romantic evening should prepare something as special as a confession of love or even a marriage proposal, that is a very nice way to get your partner in the mood for a special surprise.
