Call on Cynthia - Week Four

Dear Cynthia,
I am a husband who keeps his nose to the grindstone, but need to come up and smell the roses every once in a while so I would like to spend a romantic evening with my wife either at home or out on the town. Any suggestions on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated. Flowers and candy? A home cooked meal? Dinner and a movie? Please help!
Dear Hardworking Hubby,

Thank you for the thoughtful query and especially for including a photo. Did anyone ever tell you that you bear a striking resemblance to Mr. Gregory Peck?

Très debonair! But, I digress. Back to the pressing matter at hand - how to treat your beloved bride like a queen!

The key to planning a passionate evening is to make it as wonderfully unique as your wife. Pay careful attention to her preferences and desires. Take notes if you must, my dear man - true romance is in the details!

If your wife enjoys dinner, dancing and theater, this is the prime time to whisk her away for whirlwind evening about town. A quiet night at home is also the perfect opportunity to reconnect with your beloved.

Either way, set the tone for a positively dreamy evening with a few simple steps:

Surprise your wife by arriving home with an armful of roses in her most loved color. Any shade will be a stand out in this gorgeous vase from MidwestMilkGlass:


Show your sweet side by serving your wife's favorite candy on this beautiful dish from EncoreEmporium:


Take a twirl around the living room to the love songs playing on this terrific radio from KarensChicNShabby:

Toast to many more happy years together with these fabulous champagne flutes from RhinestonesRock:

Miss Cynthia guarantees an evening of enchantment! Your wife will spend the next day gushing to all her girlfriends about what a dreamboat you are!

Remember: when faced with a vintage dilemma, don't fret! Simply chill the champagne and CALL ON CYNTHIA!

Cynthia, once again your advice is spot on. If more men were interested in making their wives happy this world would be a better place.
