The Blind Side Movie Date

Dinner and a Movie: The Blind Side

Seriously! One of my all-time favorite movies! Why? Because it was done so well AND because it is a great chick-flick that totally involves football. Someone was thinking of the ladies AND men when they made The Blindside! Hit up your local Redbox and get a copy today, then start planning your fabulous date!

Date Ideas:

  • You can check out Kristen’s Create Your Own Pep Rally date for a great start to your movie night! Make it a fun night with friends, food and of course the movie!
  • Not into football yourself? Lisa shared with us a surprise guys night for her hubby, Football Treats & Friends. Invite the guys over, make some food and let them watch their game!  After wards – pop this movie in for a date night for the two of you!
  • Create a little training camp, have competitions in ladders, sit ups, push ups, victory dances, etc. Create scorecards and after add ’em up!

The Invite:

  • Check out Corie’s Ready For Some Football invitation that is perfect for a date night like this!
  • Find a football toy at the dollar store and write a cute invite on it.

The Food:

  • In the movie, a character owns a few Taco Bell’s. Grab yourself some quick food and show up ready for a party!
  • Twice Baked Potatoes can easily be turned into “football” potatoes with the right sour cream art touch!
  • Get “game food” to snack on during the game (popcorn, hot dogs, pizza, pretzels, soda).

Serve Your Neighbor:

  • Eat at your favorite restaurant and pick a table to secretly pay for their food.
  • Pick someone who has touched your life and write them a letter together.

Dressing The Part:

  • Get your favorites team shirts and wear for the night.
  • Paint black stripes under your eyes.

For The After-Game Party:

  • Pull out an old football jersey of the hubby’s and wear ONLY that for the movie. {wink wink}
  • Find an old cheerleader outfit and put on a half-time show!
  • Dress up as a HOT tutor and help each other “study” for the BIG TEST after the movie.
  • Play ‘touch’ football with a nerf football. Play tackle each other and know that cheating is encouraged!
