A Night of Surprises!

by

Spoil your spouse with a night of surprises they’ll never forget!

Have a special occasion coming up for your spouse?  A birthday?  An anniversary?  Or you just plain want to have a unique date night full of excitement with your sweetie?  Well, we have got the perfect date planned for you that’s full of surprises and fun!

So, I am a total surprise lover.  I love to be surprised with notes, activities, or even just a big unexpected hug!  I don’t think there’s anything better!  So that’s why I planned this surprise date night for my hubby.  Thanks to the talented Kiki at Kiki and Company we have the world’s cutest free printables to make putting this date together easy as pie!

My hubby woke up first thing to see my balloon date night countdown hanging up in the living room before heading to work.  I wanted to get him excited about all the surprises in store for the evening!

Talk about building the anticipation of surprise before the night even began!

While my husband was at work, I put everything together to make sure I would be ready in time!  Make sure you have a paper cutter, pen, pack of balloons {the darker the better so they can’t see the surprise inside} and string on hand to prepare your night of surprises!

First, I chose which activities I wanted to be a part of our evening.  We have a list of activities you can choose from as well as blank strips to write in your own ideas!  You will choose however many activities you want, along with their time to fill your evening with surprises.  Each activity will be rolled up and go inside a balloon with a matching clock taped to the outside telling your sweetie the time to pop it open and see what’s in store!

After I chose my activities, I rolled each one up and put it inside a balloon.  My advice is to roll them up along a pen or pencil, makes it quick and easy and the pencil also helps pop it inside!

Be sure to keep track of which balloon has which activity in it by securely taping your clocks on the front of each balloon {I’ll be the first to admit I got mixed up a few times}.  Don’t worry if our times don’t match your schedule!  We provided blank clocks for you to fill in as well!

Once you have all your activities planned and hidden inside your balloons, and your times taped to the front, tie them on your string and let the fun begin!

Once each time comes in the evening, your spouse gets to pop the balloon to find the activity inside!  Here’s a little sneak peek at our date night: My first activity was going out to dinner at my hubby’s all time favorite: BBQ!

He loved it!  We came back for a game night with a few of our all time favorites: Rummikub, Dominion, and Settlers of Catan!

We also popped balloons for playing tennis, dessert, some dessert after dessert, mystery clues, and ended our night with homemade popcorn and snuggling up on the couch with our favorite movie!  You don’t have to have a million crazy activities planned, the balloons and surprises make it fun themselves!

I did this date for my husband’s birthday and so, as I mentioned, one of his surprise balloons was a mystery clue!  Similar to our activity strips we also have 6 clue strips for you to fill in and lead your spouse on a hunt to a gift you have in store for them!  Put the first clue in a balloon to pop and hide the rest along the way with clues you create.  From the kitchen, to the fridge, to the dog kennel, to the car, my hubby went on the hunt to find where I left his birthday surprises!  It was the perfect way to top off our night of surprises.
