Valentine’s Glamping Date Night

Cuddle Up in Your Indoor Blanket Fort

When it’s too cold to camp outside, why not bring the fun inside? We set up the most perfect glamping date and you are not going to want to miss out! Wait, what’s glamping? Think: glamorous camping – It’s camping without all the hassles and with all the amenities – including a homemade fort piled high with blankets and INDOOR S’MORES because no indoor camping experience is complete without s’mores!

Check out this version of ooey, gooey indoor s’mores:

To make your Valentine’s indoor blanket fort as glamorous as possible, we knew we’d need a little help from Amanda at A-Manda Creations – and she totally delivered! Check out all the other amazing banners she’s created – you’ll LOVE her bright and colorful designs!

Glamping Light Banner

A glamorous fort just wouldn’t be complete without twinkling lights, so Amanda helped us create an adorable, all-in-one banner and light string. {Here’s a hint: This banner takes a little bit of prep time, so you might want to do this before date night.}

Glamping Banner How To

It’s actually pretty simple to put together!

Refer to the image above as you go through these steps:

1. Gather up all your supplies: Printables, Scissors, Hole Punch, and Light String.

2. Start by cutting out each of the double-diamond shapes that you’ve printed out. {Don’t cut off those little tabs!}

3. Punch a hole in each of the white tabs and fold them at a right angle.

4. Pull a light bulb out of its socket. Going from inside the diamond, push the bulb through the holes you created in the tabs. Make sure the part that plugs back in to the socket is sticking out! (Refer to the top right image above.)

5. Fold the other half of the diamond over to cover the light bulb and fit the tab over the end of the bulb. (Refer to the bottom left image above.)

6. Carefully, plug the bulb back into the socket on the light string. This way, the light bulb is holding the paper in place! (Refer to the bottom right image above.)

7. Just repeat these steps with each letter. {Don’t worry, it’s SO much easier than it sounds – you’ll catch on and have your banner finished in NO time!}

Indoor Blanket Fort

When it’s time for glamping, you can work together to build your own enchanting indoor blanket fort. Make it super cozy by starting with a few heavy blankets or comforters on the floor and then topping them off with all the pillows you can find. We just used a couple of chairs on either side to hold up lighter blankets above us – sheets work great for the “roof” of your fort!

  1. I usually like going out on Valentines but I can already tell that i will want to beat the crowed. It might me because I am pregnant but this is our last Valentine as just us. This sounds like a perfect idea!

  2. This was our date night last Saturday night. We had a campfire, roasted sausages, and made Smore’s. Then we came inside and watched a camping movie on our air mattress with sleeping bags and lots of pillows and twinkling lights. We also had trail mix and popcorn. Thanks for the great idea!
