Sometimes it’s impossible to make it out to have a romantic dinner on your anniversary. Sure you’ll go out in the next few days or you may even celebrate early, but does that mean you shouldn’t do something special for the big day? Why wait to go to a romantic restaurant, when you could prepare a romantic anniversary dinner at home? A romantic dinner at home provides a much more comfortable atmosphere and it’s something that’s unexpected. Your partner will never expect to come home to a romantic anniversary dinner.
A romantic anniversary dinner at home doesn’t have to be something extravagant. Simply preparing your partners favorite meal can be romantic. For example, if your partner loves bacon cheeseburgers, prepare bacon cheeseburgers. You don’t have to stick to classic anniversary dinners, such as steak and baked potatoes. Instead, try something different. Start a new tradition and prepare a romantic anniversary dinner that is fun and enjoyable.
When you prepare a romantic anniversary dinner at home you should really put your heart and soul into creating a night that will be remembered for years to come. Select a nice outfit to wear, fill your home with roses, and light candles. A romantic anniversary dinner at home should be enjoyed in an atmosphere that is different from your everyday dinners.
After you’ve turned down the lights throughout your home, filled your home with flowers, and prepared a delicious dinner. You should pull out your best china and silverware. This is a time to celebrate. Have candles on the table along with your nicest table cloth. A spot on the table would also be the perfect spot to place an anniversary gift.
Once your partner has arrived, meet them at the door with a glass of wine, or sparkling juice, and explain to them that you know you’re going out later in the week, but you couldn’t wait. Allow them to relax at the table, while you finish preparing dinner. Your partner may be surprised when you serve them bacon cheeseburgers on fine china, but it will be a good surprise.
Once your romantic dinner is finished, don’t forget to serve dessert. Again, this can be a romantic dessert, like chocolate covered strawberries, but it doesn’t have to be. This is your anniversary. Choose a dessert that you both enjoy. Even if you serve Ben & Jerry’s ice cream along with anniversary cake, this will be romantic.
The best part about having a romantic anniversary dinner at home is being able to truly enjoy each other’s company without having to wait until you get home. Once dessert is complete, skip the dishes, and enjoy a real anniversary dessert upstairs.
