Host A Romantic Dinner

Set the mood with a little extra help from GEARYS!

Romantic Dinner for Two

If you’re unsuccessfully vying for a table at the trendy new downtown restaurant on date night, you are not alone. Ensuring a reservation for two at a suitable hour is often a strenuous ordeal. While many couples prefer to avoid the labor of cooking, there is something to be said for creating an intimate meal at home. Cooking for (or with) your significant other can be gratifying and dare we say simple. Here to help you craft the perfect setting, the GEARYS team has exactly what you need to carry out a dreamy fare for two.


AMBIANCE

Setting the mood is as important as the table. Start igniting the fire of your senses with Belle Fleur’s sweet fragrances and adorn the table with inviting crystal heart votives. Add another layer of sensory dimension with a bouquet of fresh cut roses arranged in a clear heart vase - it is sure to set a romantic tone. Choose a few songs, something that makes you want to sway together and talk softly, to play in the background as you enjoy one another’s company.

WINE

With deep burgundy hues and a sultry aroma, red wine is the ultimate cocktail to nourish the essence of date night. Without the distractions of a restaurant, you’ll find there’s opportunity to indulge in comfortable and honest conversation over a well-aged bottle. If you’re planning a formal presentation, opt for a tulip shaped Waterford Lismore Diamond stem with dramatic diamond and wedge cuts. For a more relaxed visage, choose a pair of Schott Zwiesel Fortissimo glasses with delicate, streamlined silhouettes.

PLATING

The type of plate a meal is presented on is a subtle nod to detail. Juliska’s contemporary Berry & Thread dinnerware collection provides the perfect canvas for the quintessential romantic color scheme of classic white topped with a bright red cherry tomato salad, resulting in a perfect marriage of traditional pigments. If a bold and fashionable statement is more in line with your dinner preparation, the Michael Lin Anniversary set is your best bet. With vibrant coloring and fanciful brushstrokes, the dinnerware offers a fun take on romance while providing a gorgeous backdrop for your lollipop lamb chops.

TABLESCAPE

A special night commands a memorable arrangement, try mixing up the usual dinner routine by setting the scene somewhere out of the ordinary. If the weather is right, adorn an outside table with Sferra linens for an evening under the stars. An indoor picnic by the fireplace can also be a cozy background during the cooler months. Complete the table décor with a flatware set for two by Robbe & Berking, the perfect addition to any environment you choose and a wonderful way to celebrate a meal shared between lovers.

Stemware

Above all, be flexible. Orchestrating a whimsical date night doesn’t need to be rigid; romance should have spontaneity! Whether you have been married for years or are just starting a new relationship, the night is about making memories and enjoying each other’s company.
