Make Your Dining Room Feel Like a Restaurant with These Hardworking Accessories
After a year of celebrating every holiday and special occasion at home, dinners in your dining room (or TV room, we're not judging!) are starting to feel less and less special. In fact, they may feel downright boring. That's why we've decided to step it up this Valentine's Day (or any day you want to make feel special) with a few easy tweaks to make a date night at home feel like dining out at the chicest restaurant in town. We've rounded up the best restaurant accessories to emulate the ambience of a fancy dinner date that can easily be enjoyed in the comfort and safety of your own home. From candlesticks to fancy glassware, dressing up that ever-so-monotonous spread of takeout can be more fun than you think.
Set the Mood
Start with ambience. Each of these helpful tools adds a touch of elegance and class to your dinner table.
Kick It Off with a Cocktail
When dining out, the first thing you need to know is what you'd like to drink. Start your restaurant experience at home similarly with these drink tools. And if you or your dinner partner is abstaining, you can still use fancy drinkware for your mocktail recipes.
Don't Forget the Bread
That moment after you've ordered your meal and the breadbasket arrives so you can nibble while sipping you wine is one of the best parts of dining out. Serve up your bread using restaurant-like accessories.
Brew Something Special
After (or with) dessert, sip on a hot drink to wind down for the night and savor the end of the meal.
