Remodeling a Restaurant with Romantic Decor

Adding a bit of romance to a restaurant allows the building to become a hot date night destination. Romantic dinners are perfect for new couples who are actively courting, couples who are enjoying an anniversary, or those who are celebrating a rekindling in their relationships. They are also perfect for Valentine’s dinners or for exciting marriage proposals!

Dim Lighting Supplemented with Candle Light

Dim lighting sets an elegant, intimate mood for the dinner meal. With a bit of classical music playing in the background, it provides an environment in which couples can openly talk and connect comfortably. Harsh lighting can make an individual self conscious, potentially highlighting flaws or making them feel as if they’re in the spotlight. Avoiding this fault with some soft candle light lightens the mood and adds to the romantic atmosphere, bringing a warmth to the dinner table that is subtle yet appreciated.

Romantic Menu Design

When a customer first visits a restaurant, one of the first features of the establishment that they will encounter is the menu. The menu should enchant the visitors, and offer charming meals for both parties. There should also be meals that are specially designed for couples, whether it be a heart shaped pizza as an entree, chocolate dipped strawberries for dessert, or fondue finger foods for a shareable appetizer. Hundreds of custom menu designs are available to charm visiting lovebirds.

Intimate Seating

Seating is very important for romantic meals. Tables should allow couples to reach across and touch one another for conversation; small, round tables are perfect for this purpose. Booth seating could offer the ability to sit side by side. Allowing the couple to be close physically during their dinner date gives the couple more opportunities to connect emotionally. This type of seating could be exactly what is desired during engagement events or anniversary excursions.

Romantic Decor

As a finishing touch, romantic decor should be found throughout the restaurant. Fresh roses or other flowers can be used as table centerpieces. Gorgeous crystal chandeliers might grace large dining rooms. Even old wine bottles and vine laced trellises add a bit of magic to an upscale eatery. Wrap everything up with a bit of lace and extra candle light, and you have a beautiful restaurant fit for any loving couple.

Few restaurants actually cater to the romantic market. Instead, many offer an environment for all occasions. Restaurants that are dedicated to magical nights full of love and romance are not only desired, they are needed.

A Serenade while having Dinner

It’s always good to have a dinner with your loved ones in a perfect table-set night with a serenade of your most favorite song. How do you feel having that in front of you? Isn’t it such a sweet thing, right? Yes, it is!

Dinner Serenade

This is just one of the sweet stuff I want to experience but with my family. I am not telling I haven’t had this before, but most of those were because it was my birthday. Of course, this time around, I want to experience it not because of a celebration, but just to celebrate any ordinary day as special one.

In fact, I have just witnessed a serenade next to our table and it seemed like I was the one being serenaded at because I was giggling also. The music was just so sweet and emotional as it even moved me. However, a not so unfortunate thing happened as one of the 62 strat reissue of one of the singers eventually broke while they were performing. But still, they made the moment extraordinary. Overall, the night was awesome.

Dining while working

Working double time is becoming normal nowadays with the fast-paced world we live. I remember when I am dining in one of my favorite restaurants, a client messaged me and informs me that she wants me to edit and print her purchased design and have it shipped to her place.

I was in total awe while reading the message because we are continents apart and it is impossible for me to print and ship her order, as it would cost her double and even more. With this in mind, I think of having eoncode web to print solutions part of my little design business so I will never lose an income again.
