You can even take the ambience up a notch and throw in some floating pool lights. This is sure to provide the comfortable atmosphere that you seek when getting romantic with your partner.

Additional Recreational Romance Ideas


Another idea for romanticizing your backyard is creating an elegant and peaceful, outdoor dining space for those warm and beautiful nights. This can be accomplished with as little as a picnic table and a few torch lights if you please. You could even go all out and create an outdoor kitchen space/patio. There’s little that’s more romantic than cooking for your significant other under the stars while you enjoy one another’s company and the nourishment of nature. A great way to increase to romantic ambience is with mood lighting. Hanging lights and tiki torches, etc. are ideal options for placing bits of mood lighting around your backyard.

Of course not everyone is big enough on food to transform their backyard into a romantic kitchen patio space. Some couples simply look forward to spending time with one another in the comfort of their yards. For these individuals, creating a peaceful sitting space among a small garden may be the way to romance. Even if it isn’t, remember that romance benefits from the stimulation of all senses and flowers are a phenomenal way to achieve a nice sense of smell during your romantic endeavors.

Another such option for those big into movies and television is setting up a viewing space in the backyard, either on a TV or a projector. Projectors are awesome for large spaces and for individuals who enjoy to fully immerse themselves in movies with their partner. Projectors are also easier to maintain when it comes to life outdoors. Projector screens and sheets can get wet, although it’s nice when they don’t, without malfunctioning. Obviously, TVs cannot and they require more intensive set up. Creating a space in your yard for you and your partner to lounge around, enjoy movies, and enjoy the outdoors is a low-maintenance way to up the romantic atmosphere of your relationship.
