Date Night DIY Indoor Picnic

March 11, 2014

Thank you to Tiny Prints for providing me with the customized labels to help create this date night experience! No other compensation was received for this post.

It’s been so much fun creating date night ideas to add some new spark to our weekends.  It doesn’t have to cost a lot to have a creative date night experience.  Take this past Saturday night: our original date night plans got canceled so I took it upon myself to plan a night in for us.  Using my date night printable as inspiration, I made us an indoor picnic.
I wanted my husband to be surprised by my dinner idea so I kindly kicked him out of the living room while I prepared our date night dinner.  I spread a fabric tablecloth out on the living room floor.  Dinner was so simple.  I picked up a couple of prepared subs from the grocery store and served them with a bag of potato chips and a bowl of mixed berries.  For spill proof drinks, I set out bottles of Vitamin Water.  
I used customized Faded Ticket address labels from Tiny Prints to add a personalized touch to our date night sandwiches.  Aren’t they cute?  My final touch was a floral arrangement from our wedding reception.  My original plan was to have an after dinner game of Scrabble, but we traded that for Goodfellas and a hockey game.  Adding a board game to your indoor picnic is a fun idea to keep the date night going with a little friendly competition and a lot of laughter.

Supplies for Personalized Sandwich Toothpicks

Using two labels, carefully begin to stick labels together.  Just before labels are completely sealed, stick a toothpick inside and close.  Stick in sandwiches.
