 Mood Setter for the Perfect Date!


Twig Lights : These minimalistic, dainty lights can do wonders even from a little corner in a simple vase! If you’re a hopeless romantic, DG suggests twig light chandeliers above your dining table or in your balcony, which will give your room a dim illumination, just right to set the mood.

Twine Lanterns – Another classic for a beautiful setting – twine lantern! These are recommended for evenings in the patio or a small terrace. If you’re feeling particularly enthusiastic, try making this at home. All you have to do is glue a rope around a balloon, allow it to dry for a day, pop the balloon, and spray paint it for the perfect finish! Place a few intertwined fairy lights in the lanterns you make, and voila – you just earned brownie points from your loved one!

  1. Mason Jar Lighting – By now you know these are DG Favourites! But, be careful how you make use of this technique. Mason jars clubbed with bulbs will make your room go for the sunshine instead of the romantic moonlight! DG recommends placing a patterned jar or two filled with small fairy lights or tiny candles on the dining table for a date and the side table for a cozy evening in.

  1. Ornaments & Lights In a Bucket – Here’s a way slightly unheard of, creating an illuminating effect on ornaments! Put all your old Diwali, Christmas and New Year’s decorations in a bucket and mix them up with a few string lights for a shadowy radiance from the corner of the living room!

  1. Candles- A candlelight dinner is a mood-setting phrase in itself! Utter these words and you know you’ve hit jackpot with the romance quotient. Having said that, there’s always a chance of mundaneness creeping in with plain white melting candles on a dinner table. DG recommends spicing things up with carved barks as candleholders. For all the crafty ones out there, you could also glue smooth ropes to thick candles with various designs and patterns to catch the eye. Let the rugged edges mark a smooth end to your stressful day!
