No matter how far into your relationship you are, you know how important it is to continually keep the love alive. That is why it can feel a little disconcerting when your date nights start to follow a pattern, which can make things boring. You likely want to switch things up, so you might consider a night in. Thankfully, you can make even a date night at home feel fancy and much different from sitting on the couch binge-watching your favorite TV shows.

Whether you and your partner enjoy trying new cuisines or tend to stick to the same tried-and-true meals, date night at home is a great opportunity to step up your cooking.

Set the Mood
Never underestimate the importance of ambiance, so gather your candles and mood lighting. Thankfully, it is quite easy to set the mood. Firstly, it is a good idea to turn off any fluorescent or overhead lighting, as they don’t provide the energy of a fine-dining restaurant experience. You want to make sure your date night at home feels fancy. Moreover, you might consider making a playlist of soothing and romantic music to listen to during dinner. You can also include songs that are personal to you and your partner.
Dress the Table
In addition to setting the mood, you cannot disregard the dining experience. Dress the table with your finest cutlery, dishware, tablecloths, and napkins to elevate the feeling of the night. Don’t forget to add mood lighting directly to your table with candle sticks or tea lights. Finally, fresh flowers are always a good idea, so consider finishing off your table setting with a floral centerpiece.
