Human happiness is strongly tied with friends, family and of course with partner and relatives. Romance is something that urges the feeling of happiness and energy into every human being. Setting up a romantic dinner has its unique essence with it. It can make or break a relationship, weaken it or strengthen it further. Therefore proper planning must be followed in order to set-up a romantic dinner; it just cannot get better if it is a candle-light dinner.
There are etiquettes for talking, laughing or playing; similarly there are dining-etiquettes also. Lots of important matters are discussed over a dinner table, but all such occasions are not suited for a candle-light dinner. In order to plan a dinner, the occasion should always be prioritized and then the place and the setting can be taken care of.
Candle – Light dinners are generally informal ones and involve couples. It can be a start of a new relationship where the man tries hard to impress his woman. Various efforts are made so that the occasion can be treasured for a life time.
Table manners play an important role in fulfilling the mission of a perfect dinner. They give the impression of the state of our manners.
Since a candle light dinner is a private affair, only two chairs must be enough for the setting and the place should be free from extra chairs. The chair should be preferably placed in the middle of the dining area where the romantic dinner is about to take place.
The cloth draped over the table should be properly done making sure that it is even on all sides.
The plates should be placed on either side of the table where the two will be sitting and the bowls should be placed at the centre of the plates and on top of the cloth napkin the silverware, spoon, fork and then the knife should be placed making sure it is on the right hand side of the plates.
Place the drinking glasses on the right hand side and the wine glasses on the left arranged in such a way that they fall in a line.
Romance and beauty goes hand in hand therefore one thing that should not be missing from the dinner table is a flower-vase. It should be placed next to the wine glasses and not many but few roses are a must in it. One can also go a step further and put some rose-petals on the table but again too much of anything is not good therefore a subtle appearance should be maintained.
Since it is a candle-light dinner, one main concern is placing the candles. Too many candles are not a necessity, one large candle in the middle and few others surrounding it would complete the look.
One can choose from a variety of candles which are now easily available, from the transparent ones to the fragranced candles
Lightning of the candles should be done ten minutes before the dining is about to start to avoid excess of melted wax on the whole setting.
The act of eating together has a very strong significance, thus these basic steps should not be avoided.
