- Food - Simple or ornate, from home or outside, food is food and a necessity of life.
- Lighting - Create a little ambiance. A few unscented candles (candle smell and food smell should not compete). Turn off the lights or dim the lights or use a few lamps to change the mood of the room.
- Special Drinks - Something special in a special glass. This can be champagne in flutes, or wine in wine glasses, or flavored water in a wine glass or other stemmed glassware.
