5 Easy Ways to Create Romance
February is National Creative Romance month. We all think about romance for Valentine’s Day, but what about the other days? There are 365 days a year. We should be celebrating our spouse and building our relationship every day of the year. I’m not talking about the way Valentine’s is celebrated, but in simple ways.
Ways to Create Romance Every Day
There are simple ways to tell your spouse that he is special every day of the year. Although there are many more ways, here are five to get you started.
Set a Beautiful Table
We set the table beautifully for company but not for those we love the most. When I had a house with a formal dining room, we almost always ate there. I set the table nicely every day with water goblets and the whole nine yards. Sure we had occasional pizza and a movie night, but usually we ate at the formal dining room so we focused on each other, not a TV.
Couples Time After the Kids are in Bed
My husband was a store manager. There were nights he got home very late. Even though he was with people all day, when he came home he wanted to talk – sometimes for 2 hours! He wanted to unload all the stresses of the day. I tried helping him by listening without talking and providing a little treat.
Some nights I would have a tablecloth on the living room floor, music playing quietly, lights low or candles, and finger foods that we could enjoy together. Some nights I had the table set with a small treat on pretty dishes. Again, I would have candles.
Some evenings my husband was home. If we were alone, I would plan a nice dinner. If we could afford beef tenderloin, I would make individual beef wellingtons as I knew that was a favorite. But any meal can be a nice meal if the atmosphere is calm, peaceful, and looks special.
Make the Bedroom a Haven
As your budget allows, make your bedroom a haven. Clear out the junk, and create a calm, peaceful, uncluttered space. It doesn’t have to look like a hotel room. It doesn’t need to be an expensive makeover. Just clearing out the junk, cleaning it and making the bed does wonders.
Take a Walk
Never underestimate the benefit of fresh air and walking hand in hand. Getting out of the house away from kids, phones, internet and all the other things that distract people from enjoying each other is a major relationship builder.
