Just like that, the first month of 2022 has come and gone—Valentine’s Day is now on the horizon, and our team at Blue Fern has some incredible ways you can celebrate the day with your loved one in your own home.
What should be a day filled with happiness and love can quickly become stressful when trying to make reservations. The thought of calling seemingly every restaurant in town to try and find a place to spend the evening can already make you tired before you even pick up the phone. This year—say no to dinner reservations and get the best table in the house (literally), when you bring your own culinary skills to your Blue Fern kitchen.
Nowadays, there are dozens of different online cooking classes for you to explore—and this could make the perfect date night for you and your valentine this year. With recipes from all over the world, try your hand at a traditional Sicilian pasta dinner or end the evening with parisian macarons made from scratch. Another great way to try out some new recipes is by taking advantage of the many meal kit companies like HelloFresh and EveryPlate that send fresh ingredients right to your doorstep.
Sometimes, dinner dates can get to be too commonplace, so perhaps the perfect way to spend Valentine’s Day this year is to try out a new hobby with your loved one. With our townhomes offering plenty of space throughout our floor plans, you can set up your very own paint studio for the evening, create a craft room for DIY projects that spruce up your living space or swap your favorite books and spend the night discussing your favorite scenes. Whatever you end up choosing to do, your night is sure to be anything but boring.
Game nights never go out of style—so break out your board games and settle in for the evening. For games that challenge your mind—chess, scrabble or crossword puzzles might be just what you need. Or, bring out your favorite childhood board games like Clue, Candyland or Sorry for a fun night in. If you’ve always wanted to try your hand at an escape room, you can also do that virtually and choose anything from a playground escape room to an art heist adventure.
Creating an at-home tasting night is a great way to start off any evening at home. Pick your favorite theme: whisky, wine, ice cream or chocolate and set up some tasting stations in your kitchen. Get into the idea even more by taking notes on some of your favorites and pairing them with additional delicacies—or simply fill up a plate with one of everything, snuggle up on your couch and turn on your favorite movie.Whatever activity you decide to do, your Blue Fern home is the perfect date night destination.
