Overview
They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, so a homemade romantic dinner is the first step to a very warm intimate evening. A special celebration might call for fancier food, but you also need to make certain its the type of food your loved one enjoys. Sometimes, a person appreciates simple fare more when it's a favorite dish.
Preparation
You don't need fine china for the meal, but a clean area is important. Make certain that you clean the house as part of the dinner preparations. The extra care you take makes the meal even more special.
Considerations
If you have young children, send them to grandma's or the babysitter's house. It's tough to be a romantic partner when being a mom interrupts the mood.
History
Find something of significance from your past. Maybe it's the restaurant you had your first date or the music you listened to when you first danced. Include it in the evening. If you're duplicating the restaurant, include a homemade menu with the restaurant's name.
Size
Keep the setting intimate. Don't use the big dining room table for the dinner. Instead, consider using a small coffee table covered in linen. Use pillows for seats.
Effects
Keep the special effects flowing with candlelight and soft music in the background. Everyone looks better by candlelight, but don't forget to wear your sexiest outfit and makeup.
Warning
No matter how much he loves Northern beans, they aren't fit fare for a romantic dinner. Sauerkraut, fried foods, dairy and other gassy foods aren't smart either. Consider serving wine instead of beer if you have an alcoholic beverage, for the same reason.
