Backwards Date Night Idea

This year on Valentines Day we did something we’ve never done before–we had a backwards date night. Here’s how it works:

  • Write your love a invitation backwards so they have to use a mirror to read what you’ve written.
  • Tell them what time they should be ready.
  • You can choose to do this date night at home, as we did.
  • OR you can choose to go to a different restaurant for each course.
  • OR you can choose to order all the courses at one restaurant. (Be prepared to explain yourself to your server who won’t understand why you’re asking for the dessert menu first.) 🙂

The idea is quite simple. You eat dessert first, your main course second, your salad third and finish the evening with a really nice appetizer. If you’re like us, you won’t have room for the appetizer, but that’s okay. You will have had a full evening being together and enjoying your backwards dinner.

We had an absolute blast doing this date night, and we think it’s a real keeper! Let us know what you think! Remember…

NOTE: You could even start the night off making love FIRST. After all, most dates lead up to this–the MAIN event of a great date. Why not surprise your spouse by meeting them in the bedroom first! Guaranteed they won’t soon forget it!

  1. Fun! One of our most favorite dates was when we did a “progressive” dinner at 4 different restaurants – this would take it to the next level! Luv it!

    Absolutely love this! Will have to remember this for our anniversary, or birthdays, or valentine’s! I’m always looking to surprise him so he never knows what to expect.
