Your New Favorite: At-Home Date Nights
When you think of a date night, you usually think of a night out on the town and going somewhere special. Right now, going somewhere isn’t an option for a date night. If you are anything like me, you are thinking “How am I supposed to do a date night if I can’t go anywhere…?”
When I stopped to think about what date night means, I realized I had it all wrong. A special date isn’t about where you go but rather doing something special with your special someone.
When going somewhere for a date night isn’t an option, I have great news! Your Camden apartment home is ideally suited for at least three memorable at-home date nights.
Dinner and a Movie
Dinner and a movie doesn’t have to mean going to your favorite restaurant and the movie theater. You can have the same memorable experience in your Camden apartment home!
So many restaurants offering delivery and pick-up right now. You can skip cooking for this date night and order your favorite food right to your door! Before the food arrives, set the mood. Just like in a restaurant, you can dim the lights, light some candles, and play your favorite music.
Keep in mind that how you engage your five senses helps keep you stress-free during your date night. Now set the table! Use your nice dishes (why not!) or eat straight out of your take-out containers (again, why not!) It is completely up to you. You know what it is going to make the dinner feel like a true indulgence.
After dinner, seamlessly stream your must-see movie with your Camden Technology Package. It can be that movie you’ve wanted to see for weeks, or it can be your favorite movie of all time.
Voila, dinner and a movie with your favorite person from the luxury of your spacious Camden apartment home.
Cooking Class: Home Edition
I don’t know about you, but the idea of trying a new recipe in front of a bunch of strangers is intimidating to me. I can picture that special dish we’ve spent hours preparing going up in flames in front of a room full of people. I would much rather try cooking something new with my partner from the safety of my home. I can still try a new recipe, share a new experience and taste something magical all from the comfort of my fully equipped Camden kitchen.
To get started on your at-home cooking date, pick something that both you and your partner can cook together. Need some inspiration of what to cook – check out this Camden employee family favorite chicken recipe or read through this list of at-home date dinners!
Once you’ve picked a recipe, make sure to read all the way through the recipe. Yes, I said read it ALL the way through and watch the How-To video that accompanies most recipes online. Then assign tasks to each person, making sure to designate zones. One person manages the glass cooktop stove and your double kitchen sink. While the other person handles chopping and combining all the ingredients!
Ready, start, get cooking! Not only are you sharing a special memory, but you will also get to enjoy a delicious meal together! Don’t forget to finish the night off with the best chocolate chip recipe!
Make it a Game Night
This is the perfect date night for the competitive couple! Whether you prefer digital games or a traditional board game, the perfect date night is one turn away.
Start by picking a game you both enjoy playing. Once you’ve identified the game, make sure to choose a place in your spacious Camden apartment home that you are both comfortable. If you have designated game room like the townhomes at Camden Grandview, you’re all set! If you don’t have a designated game room, because most of us don’t, pick the comfiest spot on the couch. Crack open the door to let in some fresh air from your balcony.
Now to address the snack situation. Let’s be honest; snacks are essential for a game night. Pop some popcorn, pour a drink or make your favorite game-day dip. You won’t have to interrupt your intense game when hunger pains hit! Need some board game inspiration fit for you and your best friend? Here are some games geared for two players that would be perfect for your date night!
