    These are GREAT ideas! Love them! Last year on our anniversary – my husband and I went to the lake with our boat and went swimming and when we got home I had the table all set and dinner in the oven (help from my mom and daughter!) and had a basket on the table full of his favorite things! I put a bottle of wine in the basket along with a rented DVD (from Red Box – only $1), chocolate covered peanuts, and popcorn to make during the movie! He loved it and it was a perfect date night! This would work great for Valentines Day!
    Another idea we’ve done with out children (5 and 7) is lay a blanket in the middle of the floor and put your favorite family movie and have a dinner picnic in your living room with a special dessert as well!! Fun for all and the kids love it!
