Friday's Fancies Week #12: Date Night
Date Night

Date Night by eloquentenglish featuring zigzag jewelry

This weeks Friday's Fancies is in regards to Date Night.  I was feeling very gold and fancy putting this set together...  I'm thinking a fancy dinner somewhere outside with a nice long walk on the beach barefoot.  

I thought these were some great date night ideas:
Purchase food from the store and spend time cooking together in the kitchen
Slumber Party for two!  Have dinner and dessert in bed!
Cozy Movie Night
Go for a hike or long walk together
Coffee Date
Spend some time relaxing at the beach or the pool
Stroll through a museum, garden or zoo
Share a milkshake, dessert, cupcake at a little shop
Take a road trip into the city, the mountains, etc and getaway from your natural surroundings
Go to a roller or ice skating rink
Go to a favorite sporting event (i.e. basketball, football, soccer, hockey, etc)
Go to a wine tasting
Go shopping!
Have a tournament of your choice with a board / card game (our favorites are Scrabble and Yahtzee - actually Joe hates Yahtzee as he never wins!)
Watch the sunrise or sunset in a scenic setting
Get a couples massage

What do you consider to be the perfect date?
