Three Ways To Transform Your Garage Into A Paradise For Valentine’s Day
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, many couples are caught up in the excitement and chaos of finding just the right gifts or planning the perfect date night. Although every couple should enjoy an elegant night on the town at some point, some of the best and sweetest date ideas can take place in your own house–your garage to be precise. Packed with mysterious boxes, dusty bunnies, and ancient gardening supplies, your garage may not seem like the best romantic get-away. However, with a little planning and some elbow grease, you can easily turn your garage into a Valentine’s Day hotspot both you and our significant other will cherish.
Finding reservations at an elegant candlelit restaurant can be tricky if not impossible on Valentine’s Day. Skip packed restaurants and create your own intimate dining experience. After your garage is suitably cleaned-out, move a small table into the garage’s center and begin your decorations. Use strings of fairy lights and elegant candles to set a cozy atmosphere. If possible, find a way to hang old pictures of you and our loved one around the garage to take you both back to your favorite memories. Pick out your favorite love songs or find old Frank Sinatra favorites to complete the romantic setting. As far as dinner is concerned, this part is completely up to you. Whether you cook yourself or have take-out from your favorite restaurant, the meal is sure to go down in your memories as one of the best.
Drive-in theaters are the perfect date night setting. Although many of these vintage theaters no longer run, you can still create the perfect place for retro romance. Be sure your garage is clean-out enough to hang a large white sheet, preferably on the side of the garage door. If you don’t own any type of movie projector, look into finding one for your date night. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy or expensive. These projectors easily connect to laptops for a quick and simple movie theater effect. After your projector is set up, select a movie you know you’ll both enjoy. If married, watching your wedding video is a great way to reminisce together. If you know your Valentine will enjoy an edgier tone, pick out a fun horror B-movie or something a little creepier. For a steamy movie experience, invest in hot romance flick or something a tad naughty. As your date night begins, fire up your movie, snuggle together into your car, and arm yourself with your favorite theater treats. This will be one movie night you both will be eager to repeat in the near future.
If you want to create an active date night, an arts and craft project is a great choice. Creating something together is the perfect bonding experience. A glow-in-the-dark paint-off is an exciting art project that will go down in history as probably one of the crazier things you and your loved one have done together. This project is lesson-free; both of you can get down and dirty right away. Clear out several walls in your garage and hang large white sheets or large pages of butcher paper. Be sure they’re taped or stapled down securely. Replace your garage lighting with a black light bulb. If you want to be truly adventurous, skip the lighting altogether and plan on a pitch-black garage. Find several large tubs of glow-in-the-dark paint from your craft store or online. Add some sponges or brushes and plan on a hilarious evening together. Come up with fun painting challenges and see who can create the wildest pictures. Regardless of your art skills, this project is sure to bring you both a smile. Don’t be surprised if some of this bright paint ends up on each other and not the walls!
Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to create new, fun memories with your loved one. Regardless of what you do, spending quality time together is the best way to keep your relationship fresh and alive. These easy date night ideas may not be pricey, but they are a sure way to bring each other close together this February.
