How do you Celebrate Life During the Pandemic?
These last few months with the pandemic has changed how we do a lot of things. The way we shop, visit our friends, and celebrate the best moments of life have all changed. Instead of letting disappointment set in let's get creative! When it comes to celebrating a wedding anniversary many choose to go on a nice beach vacation or, head to a secluded area where you can catch up on some much-needed one on time with your spouse. If travel is restricted where you live or if you just want to be cautious how can you celebrate one of the most important events in your life?
Turn Your Home Into a Place of Romance
A romantic setting is always accompanied by a nice candlelit table, beautiful flowers, and soft mellow music in the background. Maybe even your wedding song. Bring this atmosphere into your home. Select a nice table runner or tablecloth to give your table a glamorous look. Choose candles of different sizes to give your table dimension. Beautiful plates and glasses will add a nice touch. Does your spouse have a favorite meal? Prepare or buy a 3-course meal to give the illusion that you are at a five-star restaurant. Re-create your first dance and talk about funny stories you’ve shared. Exchange gifts. Maybe even splurge a little more than usual as these are unique times we are living in. You might say this will cost a lot of money, but remember your at-home anniversary dinner will be much cheaper than that beach vacation. It will be one you will not forget!
Choose a Fun Activity
After dinner plan a fun or relaxing event. Why not, have a movie night. The classic dinner and movie are always in style. Don’t forget to buy your snacks ahead of time. Your favorite candies, chips, and cookies will make the movie perfect. The best part, enjoy cuddling up on a comfortable sofa. Make the movie night magical by adding string lights to make the movie extra special. Try something different and set up a projector and watch the movie outside. If a movie night isn’t your thing try playing your favorite game. Surprise your spouse and have a game set up outside on your patio. For something more relaxing create an at-home spa for your favorite person. Use essential oils, candles, and a nice bubble bath, and don’t forget the wine to create a cozy relaxing spa room.
Take your anniversary night outside and set up Airdronack chairs. Cozy up next to the fire and roast marshmallows. Get creative and try different ingredients in your smores, and reminisce on the good time, and experiences you’ve shared throughout your time together!
Learn Something New Together
With Youtube at our fingertips, there are so many things we can learn. Why not enjoy a paint and sip, or learn how to make your favorite dish. Go shopping together and re-decorate your bedroom. Whatever you learn you will be doing it together. This will make the night a memorable one and bring you closer together.
Planning ahead is always the most important tip to keep in mind no matter how you choose to celebrate your anniversary. Whether at home or away from home start planning in advance so every detail will be just right. The disappointment of not being able to travel will soon turn into a cherished night that will always be remembered and never forgotten! Do you need help setting the table?
