How To Plan A Romantic Anniversary Day At Home
Not many people choose to celebrate their anniversary, either because they don’t have the time to plan anything or because they don’t want to spend too much money on a party. The easiest solution is to have a dreamy anniversary celebration right at home for just the two of you. If you want to know how to plan a romantic anniversary day at home, read on!
Tips To Plan A Romantic Anniversary Day At Home
Create A Romantic Atmosphere
Since you will want to spend time alone with each other, it is best to get your kids (if you have any) out of the way by letting them have their own fun by sleeping over at a their cousin’s or friend’s place. When you’re planning a romantic anniversary day at home, you also need to tidy up, and that means clearing the entire house of dirt and clutter. When it comes to décor, you don’t want to use a lot of decorative items since this is just a party for two.
Use scented candles and lots of flowers to make every room in your home look truly romantic. If you have an aromatherapy kit or can purchase one, you can use it to diffuse the delicious aromas of flower scented oils like lavender all around your house. You can also use your best linen and curtains (preferably lacy or silk) all around your home.
Let your spouse know you have something special in mind for this anniversary by putting up a few sweet and thoughtful (and small) notes around the house, where he or she will be sure to notice them. Places like the bathroom mirror or hall mirrors, bedside table and dinner table are ideal places to stick romantic notes. You can also stick a note on his or her car dashboard (not on the windshield since it might distract your spouse while driving).
Do not stick a note inside briefcases and purses since it might get lost between papers and end up in the wrong hands. Instead you can stick them on the handles or straps so that they are clearly visible. If you are planning on surprising your spouse, you can put these notes up just before your spouse wakes up or gets home from work.
Romantic Dinner And Gifts

Prepare your spouse’s most favorite dishes, making sure to avoid anything he or she is allergic to or dislikes. For instance, if your spouse is dieting, avoid fattening foods and go with dishes like chicken or turkey salad, chicken fingers, and plenty of fruit. If your spouse has no qualms about food, you can prepare an awesome gourmet dinner for two, featuring mouth watering dishes like beef bourguignon and filet mignon or simple dishes like steak and potatoes.
If your spouse likes wine, make sure you include a decorated ice bucket with the very best wine you can afford. Serve your prepared dishes in your best china, and you can also use a vase of red roses as a centerpiece with two ornamental candle stands on either side.
Decorate your dishes and add a romantic touch by using red colored fruits and flowers around the dishes and plates. Planning a romantic anniversary day at home also means purchasing or making a special something for your spouse. You can find great bargains online for romantic gifts for both men and women. Making your own gift is also a very personal and thoughtful way of showing you care.
If you have trouble deciding what to get, either ask your spouse outright or buy something that you know he or she has wanted for a long time. So if you know your wife’s been longing for the pretty necklace she saw in the store window the other day, you could gift it to her to make her feel special. Place your gift at your spouse’s place at the table so he or she can open it before dinner.
