Ideas for a Romantic Setup

Romantic setups can occur while celebrating the holidays, a birthday, Valentine’s Day or an anniversary, as well as the night of a marriage proposal.
Romantic setups may include anything from a night out on the town to a quiet evening at home.Romantic setups may include anything from a night out on the town to a quiet evening at home.
Creating a romantic atmosphere does not have to cost a lot of money and can take place from the comfort of your own home or in your own neighborhood.

Parisian Setting

If you can’t make it to Paris, bring Paris to you.
Arrange a round Parisian cabaret table with two chairs out on a balcony, a patio or a rooftop if you have access. Cover the table with formal silverware, floral china, fresh flowers, candlelight and a toile tablecloth. Off to the side, include a bottle of French wine or chilled champagne. For dinner, offer a sampling of various French foods. Include soft French music or read a love poem in French aloud for an added bit of ambiance.

City and Waterfront Views

Create a romantic setup by visiting sites with impressive vistas around your region.
For instance, go to a nearby observatory or head out to a hilltop where you can watch the stars together or enjoy views of the city while feasting on a gourmet picnic. If you reside near the coast, rent a canopy for the beach. Bring such treats as chocolate-covered strawberries or cheese and crackers, while huddled near a campfire and watching the sunset. You can also reserve a horse-drawn carriage ride through a sprawling park or alongside a waterfront district as you sip from a cup of hot chocolate under a blanket.

Romantic Hotel Room

Rent a room in a boutique hotel or a bed-and-breakfast facility, particularly one located in a quaint setting, such as a seaside village or mountain town.
Search for accommodations which offer a host of services, including guest rooms outfitted with whirlpool bathtubs and fireplaces. Cover the bed and fill the tub with scattered rose petals. Order in-room spa services, including a couples massage, if possible. Relax in a pair of plush robes as you read aloud from your loved one’s favorite classic romance novel or poem.
