If this is going to be an event that’s for a couple then romance should be at the top of the list. To set a romantic mood, buy items that will help people know the occasion encourage the guests to feel comfortable. Buying candles are a great idea because they’re not only inexpensive but they are perfect for setting the mood. Don’t ever forget about centerpieces. These can either be placed on the tables that are around the house for the food or they could be set up sporadically throughout the home so it can keep the theme consistent.
