5 last minute date night at home tips to help you have a memorable & romantic date night in the comfort of your own home.
Can you believe the holidays are over and a new year has already begun? If you are like me, you may already be struggling to keep your New Year’s resolutions alive.
The only resolution I have ever had any success at keeping is one that I made 6 and 1/2 years ago when I made a commitment to my sweet husband and resolved to love him as I had never loved another human.
But before I get too mushy on you all (hey Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!), let’s skip straight to the reason you are here.
If you are looking for date night ideas with tips and tricks for creating an awesome date night at home, then you have come to the right place!
Thursday has typically been our day for date nights, but I’m thinking I may want to switch it up this year by having more date nights each week at home.
And while that may sound like more work to some people, I know that date night at home can be just as relaxing and even more cozy!
So, I’ve teamed up with Vanity Fair® to share how their Vanity Fair® Extra Absorbent Napkins can help you create easy last minute date night at home.
We used these Vanity Fair® napkins over the holiday season for our 30 guests, and they were the perfect addition to our place settings! I love how soft to the touch they are and how absorbent they were for hot chocolate spills.
Vanity Fair® Extra Absorbent Napkins are made for life’s unexpected mealtime surprises, and I’m sure your special someone will love coming home to a surprise date night with you!
And guess what? You are only 5 steps away from a romantic evening at home!
So let’s get started!
1. Theme & Activity
The first step is to decide on the focus of your date night at home.
Your theme could be movie night with a movie marathon, or an activity, such as a game night.
These are two of my personal favorites, so I’m going to focus on them moving forward, but you could also have a DIY night, a painting night, or any other hobby or activity that you enjoy together.
Once you know what you want to do during your date night at home, you can decide where you want to host your date night.
You could choose to have your movie marathon in bed, or under the stars with a portable projector and a movie screen made from a white sheet.
And if you choose to have a game night, you could do this in your living room on a cozy rug or soft blanket, or even outside on your front porch or back deck.
I decided on our living room for the setting. I moved a small table in front of our couch and it was so easy to set with games, finger food, and Vanity Fair® Extra Absorbent Napkins.
3. Candles & Music
Thirdly, to add a romantic atmosphere, you can choose your favorite scented candles and music to match your theme.
I have a bit of a candle obsession, so I always have a few nearby to be lit at the last minute.
4. Tablescape for Two
Creating a romantic dinner tablescape for two is super simple.
All you need is a couple of dishes, fancy cups, silverware, and Vanity Fair® Extra Absorbent Napkins.
How easy was that!?
I love the pattern on these Vanity Fair® Napkins and I so wish you could reach into this picture & feel how soft they are for your fingers!
5. Easy Finger Foods
Roger and I love simple finger foods.
So a cheese, fruit, cracker, and nut plate is ideal for our date nights at home.
Even if you are putting together a last minute date night, chances are you will already have just about everything you need for a cheeseboard in your kitchen!
If you feel like kicking it up a notch, you could even create a cheese and chocolate fondue date night!
And when you are planning a dinner of finger food having Vanity Fair® Extra Absorbent Napkins on hand is always a must for keeping fingers clean.
I decided to set up a last minute date night in our living room with a cheese board, Vanity Fair® Extra Absorbent Napkins, candles, and some of my favorite classical music in the background.
Luckily, I had these Vanity Fair® Extra Absorbent Napkins on hand when I accidentally spilled the water all over the table. These napkins are good to have on the table for unexpected mealtime messes!
And while you can’t see it in the pictures above, I also have some games hidden near the couch for once we clear the little table.
Sometimes the simplest of date nights are the best!
I hope these 5 tips help you create a wonderful date night at home with your spouse and that date nights at home become a special tradition with your loved one.
