We're paper crafters. We're a CREATIVE group of ladies. Our men might not understand our love for stickers and they may not share our enthusiasm for chipboard ... but imagine how appreciated and special they would feel if every now and then we took some of our creative energy and used it to come up with unique, inexpensive ways to say "hey, guess what?! I really love you"
That's the whole idea behind my DIY Date Night posts. Every now and then, I'll share some of my date night ideas with you + provide photos and, when necessary, step-by-step instructions on how you can create a similar experience for your special someone. I'll be posting links to all the the date night ideas in the "Tutorials" section of the website. If you're single, these ideas can easily be switched up a little to make them suitable for a mommy-daughter date or a girls' night in, etc. Oh, and just because I'm calling the series DIY Date Night doesn't mean all of the ideas are evening activities. Today's post, for example, features a sweet morning surprise.
I know my husband, and I know he's going to have a romantic evening planned for us on Valentine's Day. So, instead of making plans for dinner, I decided to spoil him with a little T.L.C first thing in the morning. A breakfast/coffee/tea date idea is so simple to put together & so inexpensive ... and it's a surprise anyone would be happy to wake up to. Here's a peek of what I have in store for my Mister ...
Set your surprise up on the kitchen counter, his nightstand or dresser - wherever he'll be sure to see it when he wakes up. Have a cup of coffee or tea waiting, some cute treats (things like cookies and biscotti will do the trick) + don't forget to include a homemade Valentine with a little note telling him how much you appreciate him!
Now, I realize my table looks a little "girly" with all the pink ... but I'm pretty sure the bacon I cook while he's reading his Valentine will make up for it! If you prefer to go with a more masculine vibe, go with a red & gold, red & black or a red & navy color scheme.
I hope this post has inspired you to create your own little love table for your special someone! If you do, please please please post a link down below so I can see some photos!
