My husband surprised me with this date night during the coronavirus quarantine and it really brightened up our weekend. It’s a great way to get creative and try and relax during a stressful and challenging time. So try this date night during the quarantine.
The overall idea is to change your environment.
Many of us are spending time in the same place day after day. The idea of this date night is to transform the space you’re living in into a totally new space. If you’re creative, you can make this work almost anywhere – you can even use different corners of the same room. If you aren’t sure where to begin then start looking up ideas online! Search date night ideas and things your partner likes and then tailor it to your home.
What my husband did is create three different “locations” for our date night.
First, there was “Maui.” He took beach towels and chairs and set this stop to feel like we were at a beach cafe. We started the night off with some games.
Then we went to “Lightning Strikes,” which really surprised me. We had ordered an inexpensive karaoke microphone off of Amazon which he used to setup up a karaoke room! He turned off the lights and looked up karaoke songs on YouTube. This made it really, truly feel like we were out dancing and singing with one another. So keep in mind, you may want to order something online in advance.
The last stop was “Orbital.” He moved pillows to the floor and put Christmas lights around them to make watching TV feel more like an at-home movie theater.
So spice up your weekend and try this date night during the quarantine! But remember, safety first and practice social distancing.
