While a lot of couples tend to get reservations and head to a restaurant, the at-home candle-lit dinner is still a classic for a good reason. You may be terrified at the prospect of doing some of the cooking yourself, so we're going to give you a good hack to make this go smoother. Pick up a couple of tall candles, and a large pack of tealight candles, which are very inexpensive. Scatter the candles throughout your apartment, dim the light, and put on some music. For the food, try to focus on cooking one simple and light main course, and get a few pre-prepared items for appetizers and desserts. This way the whole night isn't riding on your cooking, and you will still have plenty of time to figure out the rest of your evening.
