Romantic Dinner Ideas

romantic dinner recipes

A romantic dinner party for two is sweet and fun and is right any time of the year.  

Start the evening off with a sumptuous romantic dinner menu.  Stir up your senses with  a Sweet and Spicy Crab Salad, Chicken Marsala or Luscious Lemon Tart.

If a taste tempting menu is not enough, set-up candles throughout the room to cast a warm vibrant glow.  Add a touch of romance with a centerpiece of fresh roses.  Set your table with elegant linens, fine china, and polished silverware.

Soft, romantic music heightens the mood, while tucking handwritten love notes under the couch pillows or dinner plates will take it over the top. 

Have a selection of gourmet chocolates available, even before a decadent dessert.  

Remember, the most important ingredient is your love and affection for each other. Enjoy!
