Coffee, Tea or Me?
If, like most of us, you're on a budget, you can create some serious romantic drama without dropping much cash on decor. "To set the stage for a romantic night in, first turn down the lights and spark candles all over the house ... living room, bedroom, even in the bathroom," says Richter, who notes that LED tea lights look great and are much safer for bedroom romps. "Dress in your sexiest outfit -- no need to buy a new one -- and tell your partner that you are the 'appetizer,' and a homemade dinner will be served after a bit of whoopie." Prep the meal ahead of time and be sure to bake a decadent dessert so the sweet smell lingers in the air. "This way, all of your beloved's senses will be stimulated, and you won't be too full for a roll in the hay!" says Richter with a laugh.
