We have a contest underway, yet it’s time for another letter from our Alphabet Date series. This week we look at all the letter “P” offers.
Picnic in the Park – Spend some time really making the best picnic you’ve ever had – not a p.b. & j. kind, but the fried chicken kind. If you start planning it a week or so in advance, you’ll be surprised (and so will your spouse) of how special a picnic can be. Don’t forget the “Peaches”. Here is a romantic picnic for two and here is another one. Both will provide great memories because of the company!
Pool – visit a local hall and challenge your spouse to a special game of billiards. Click here for a variety of rules.
Para-sailing – You’ve seen them hovering over the ocean like human manned kites. But if you’ve never ventured up in the air, you don’t know what you’re missing. This one is worth saving pennies for, and to do it together – how romantic!
Play Ping-Pong – don’t have a table? Why not buy a set of ping pong balls and write secret clues on them. One will lead to the next, to the next and so on. Have the last one located in a special place where you’ve prepared a special treat*. See “Special Touches” section for ideas.
Putt-Putt Golf – This is a great way to spend an evening. Set different prizes for a hole in one. For locals – we recently played at Disney’s Fantasia Miniature Golf Course. It was a lot of fun. We felt like we were on vacation!
Pizza – make your own heart-shaped pizzas.
“P” Special Touches:
*Ideas for final ball location of Ping Pong Ball Hunt Game – bubble bath, pool (for a late night swim), porch (with candles and soft music playing), pantry (where they’ll find their favorite late night snack), park (if you’re doing this outside of the home).
Peppermint Patties – Use these to announce your “P” date night, with a secret message inside the foil wrapper. Or try making your own!
Say it with “P” Flowers and their meaning: petunias – your presence soothes me; phlox – harmony, a good relationship; peppermint – warmth of feeling; pansy – merriment or thoughtful reflection; periwinkle – sweet remembrance.
Pop the Question (again). If you had it to do all over again how would you Propose to your wife today? Why not take some time to plan a special time and do it up in a perfect way. If the budget allows, buy her a special surprise. Here are 50 romantic ideas of how to do it well!
