Hosting a Romantic Dinner for Two


0275sm.jpg

So the wooing is going well and you are now on that exhilarating rollercoaster that is lurve and so far it is all peachy keen jelly bean! So what is next? You have to maintain the “woo” any long time married couple will tell you that the wooing is very important to keeping the fires of love burning. One way is the Romantic Dinner for Two. But before you put on your “Kiss the Cook” apron take some time to plan your dinner so that even Cupid will be impressed. Everything has to be just so. First up it helps if you can cook. You do not want to make the fires of love a literal thing with a house full of fire fighters putting out the kitchen. You don’t have to be a chef, just the basics is all you need to get it going.

Menu wise, you want to serve food that will ignite the passion. TV dinners will not do this. At all… Oysters (ick) and chocolate are what is known as aphrodisiacs and that is what you want. Avoid oily and ‘heavy’ food like steak, potatoes, turkey and keep portion size on the small side. You don’t want to be sitting there stuffed to the eyeballs and ready to fall asleep. Not very romantic is it? Keep your food light but big on taste. Do not use GARLIC and avoid raw onions. Stinky breath will not only wilt the floral arrangement but wilt any shot at romance. Cut pita bread into heart shapes and top with pizza sauce and topping and toast them. Have a plate of sushi to pick at. Serve a side crispy noodle salad. For a main meal, look at trying seafood, chicken or vegetarian dishes. Pasta dishes are easy to make, but keep in mind a smaller serve as it is very filling.

The best bit of the dinner is the dessert. Dip strawberries in chilli chocolate for that hint of spicy (hint, hint, wink, wink), s scoop or two of homemade vanilla ice cream with a spring of mint on top and a platter of little pink and red cupcakes. Drizzle everything with chocolate and wash it down with fun and flirty cocktails or a bottle of fine wine or champers. Flicking through my trusty book of cocktails, for the naughty couples why not have Between the Sheets to sip on? For the hopeless romantic sip on classic champagne cocktails. For your man why not fix him a Le Mans cocktail (contreau, vodka, soda and a slice of lemon).

Menu aside you now have to set the scene. Will it be at home, on the beach or park? Indoor or outdoor, Australia’s #1 Party Shop has everything you need to set up and woo (and they also have everything you need for engagements and weddings – I’m just sayin’!) Obviously pink and red are the standard colours for Valentine’s. You can go over the top and cover everything in those colours, or you can keep it minimal chic. For example, have a white table cloth, but red or pink napkins and a monogrammed vase in the centre with a big bunch of red roses tied with a pretty pink ribbon. Treat him/her to a red or pink cupcake, presented in a cute little gift box or a little bouquet of red and pink lollipops and attach a love note to it. At their seat, a photo frame with a picture of you together. Display the treats and sweets on the “LOVE” platter. Light the room with tea lights and hang up paper lanterns (depending on size of room and location though). Use the tea lights to lead your love to the dinner, that there is wooing!

If you want to play music during your meal, keep it low. You need to be able to hear each other and talking is a big part of the “Woo”. You do not want to compete with the music over dinner conversation, but by all means turn it up a little for a dance or two. If dancing is not your best skill, why not play some fun games. It can be anything from Uno, Connect Four or Twister to games like Passionate Paperclips – you will need a small piece of playing card and two large paper clips. You explain to your guest about the wildly passionate nature of paperclips and to prove it attach the clips to the card (1inch to 2.5cm apart). Show both sides of the card to prove the clips are not touching (at this stage). Fold the right hand side of the card under the left clip. Turn the card around and repeat the move thus the card should look like a “Z”. Make sure you keep the clips straight. Tug sharply on the ends of the card and voila! The paperclips will fly up in the air and land in a passionate embrace. Nawwww!

Now you have the basics, it is up to you to organise your romantic dinner with the help of Pink Frosting.
