When planning a romantic dinner, it's important to make it different from the everyday meals you have together. The easiest way to do this is to set up a small table in an area you wouldn't normally eat, like by the fireplace or overlooking the window. Use placemats, cloth napkins, good china, and fine flatware. Place wine and water glasses on the table. Dim the lights and light lots of candles. Fill a vase with beautiful red flowers and position them in the background.
