V-Day Date Night!

Hey All!!  My previous posts I have written about a Valentine's gift that I was making and planning for the hubby:)  It was extra hard to get all of it finished because we are always together, but I was lucky because he is a morning person and I am a night owl! So, I worked on my projects for him after he went to bed.  I even stayed up until 12:30/1:00 the night before V-Day and I was super tired the next morning at work.  I think that's why I'm getting sick now:(

I wanted to share with you the date that I planned because this would be fun for any time during the year and the best part is that it's less expensive than going out.  Plus, it all comes from the heart!

Make a Candy Gram for your hubby and place it somewhere close to the door, so he sees it right when he walks in!

If you don't want your hubby to know what your making for supper you could get a bath ready for him to relax in and also give him a basket full of goodies to use while he's in there:)

I bought the flower pedals from a local florist for only $4.00!!!  What a deal:)

Kinda blurry, but this is the basket I put together for him.
While your hubby is preoccupied, you can begin to prepare your meal!  If you are planning to make a fondue 4 course meal like I did then allot yourself at least 1 hour and 30 minutes.  You could shorten this time quite a bit if you have everything cut and measured out the night before! Note to self for next time:)

Appetizer Time!

Yummy, cheese dip!

Then right before you get to dessert, you can have your man go on the "Love Hunt" which will lead him to his "Basket of Love"!  The "Love Hunt" could be a romantic as you want it to be!  What I had the hubby do was find a clue and then do the task card that went along with it.  One of the task cards was dance to a slow song and I choose our wedding song!  It was lots of fun and very romantic:)  If you want to know more about the "Love Hunt" then click on this link!

Here it is!  There are a lot of things that you could include in it and some of the things, you could  make yourself while other things can be found from other sites:)

Things to include in your "Basket of Love":
-Heart Compliments
-Candy sprinkled on bottom
-Picture of the two you( Instead, my hubby wanted a "Man Cave" Certificate.  So, I bought him that and a frame)
-Beer Mug(not pictured above)
-Heart Garland
*All of the ones that have links, I used either their templates, or ideas and may have altered them to what I needed*
Here's the mug!
I made this beer mug!  I just bought a paint on pen for glass, fabric, and etc. and bought the mug from the Dollar Tree.  Then I went on Microsoft Word, picked out a font that I liked, typed what I wanted, made it bigger, and printed it off.  Next, I taped the paper into the mug and traced it with my pen that I bought!  It turned out pretty well:)
Hubby with certificate!

It's not a great pic of the certificate, but you get the jest of it:)  Most of all just include things that your hubby would like and enjoy! 

After the treasure hunt is over with, then you can enjoy your dessert.  I included that on one of my task cards to feed each other dessert, so that's why we had dessert after the treasure hunt!

This date takes a little bit of planning, but it is really worth it and you and your hubby will definitely make some good memories!  I hope you liked the date idea and I would suggest to definitely try the "Love Hunt" and making fondue for supper.  It's romantical:)

Until next time!
