You want to plan the perfect romantic dining experience for your partner. Instead of opting for a restaurant or cooking them dinner at home, you want to plan it on your floating dock. Sitting by the lake under the open sky decorated with stars and the moon as the boat dock gently sways back and forth will set the mood for romance.
If that has gotten you excited and pumped to plan a romantic dinner on the floating dock, you need a tip to make it perfect.
What Are You Wearing?
Let’s start with your clothes. Although you’re arranging a romantic dining experience, you’ll be swapping your fancy clothes from comfortable, yet stylish and cute clothes. Women can wear a cute summer dress, a jumpsuit, or any causal clothes whereas a man can wear a shirt and shorts.
Wear flats or sneakers, not fancy dress shoes and heels. Do bring a swimsuit with you in case you both feel like taking a dip in the water before or after dinner.
What Food to Bring?
How fancy do you want to go with the food? Since the boat dock is near your house, you can go as fancy as you want to go with the food. You can prepare the food and set it on the table with a table matt with a candle in the middle and two chairs. You can play soft romantic music in the background as you dine. Some food ideas we have in mind:
- Smoked trout salad
- Cranberry curd ricotta crostini
- Shaved fennel salad
- Turkey, basil, and peach sandwiches
- Herbed salad with grapefruit and cardamom vinaigrette
- Cake, pie, cookies, and more for dessert
- Wine, sodas, and water for drinks
Don’t Plan a Picnic without Checking the Weather Forecast
It’s another story if it rains unexpectedly, but you don’t want to plan a romantic dining experience on your floating dock without checking the weather forecast. You don’t want the rain to ruin your picnic. If your area is prone to unexpected rainfall, set up a picnic table with an umbrella and put a tent on the boat dock. If it rains, you can spend time with each other in the tent without it raining on your parade.
Don’t Forget to Take Pictures and Make Videos
You want to remember the memories forever. Capture the memories on camera and video, so you can reflect on them after the picnic ends. You’ll have an incredible time remembering that fun day. Do take pictures of the setup.
You put in a lot of effort arranging it. Show your hard work on Instagram followed by the expression on your loved one’s face when they see the romantic and thoughtful set up before them.
Bonus Idea: Go for a Boat Ride
If you have a boat, go for a boat ride. It’ll be even more romantic. If the weather is good and the water is gentle, then why not? Go for it.
