Cristina shows you how to cook up a romantic anniversary dinner, but her delicious dishes are only part of the package. Make your celebration totally memorable by setting the stage for romance.
Follow these tips to get closer to the one you love.
Get a babysitter. If ever there were a good night for a sleepover at grandma's house, this is it. You love your kids, but this is your night, not theirs. Clear out the house so that it’s just you and your partner. When was the last time you were all alone together?
Communicate with each other. Really look into your partner’s eyes when he or she is talking. When was the last time you gave each other your undivided attention? Mention memories, count up the years, look to the future. Appreciate how much it means to be together in this life.
Pamper your mate. Take a bath together or give a massage or a foot rub. This is your chance to really indulge each other.
Set the Stage for Romance Candles. Even a single candle improves the mood. So why not light a few? But remember, save the scented candles for the bath or bedroom. You don't want extra odors to compete with your romantic dinner!
Music. Don't forget to put on a soft and silky groove in the background. Put that sway into your partner's body. Rock it gently all night long. Wine. Just remember: you're not out to get overly tipsy!
You're here to toast each other and set the mood. A glass or two of a tasty and drinkable white will go great with Cristina's anniversary dinner. Even better, break out the bubbly. If not on a night like this, then when?
