When we had children Valentine’s Day took on a different dimension. When they were very young and went to bed by seven, we would make a nice dinner to celebrate. The last couple of years we turned our Valentine’s Date night into a family Fondue dinner.
Today I will be sharing our Fondue Valentine’s Date Night ideas and necessities, for both during and after dinner with the family.
HOW TO HOST A FONDUE NIGHT
We don’t buy presents for our kids on Valentine’s Day, they get enough from their classmates, but this year I decided to give a family gift of the all the necessities for a Fondue Date Night with a little intimacy twist for Hubby and I.
WHAT YOU NEED FOR A SUCCESSFUL DATE NIGHT
Thanks to this shop from Collective Bias, I headed to our Wal-Mart to collect all the supplies for this Fondue Date Night in with the family.
Who knew there were this many different marshmallows. I picked up some great chocolates and cheeses to make both a savory and sweet fondue.
I also decided this year I would pick something special for after the kids go to bed to extend our Family night into an adult date night in.
For this shop I found this KY Date Night package in the incontinence section of Wal-Mart, a little Ironic don’t you think!!
What a great date night in idea for another time.
OK back to the Fondue night…. Back at home I decided to set the stage for our Family Valentine’s Night. I assembled these fun marshmallows into individual skewers for the kids.
MAKE MARSHMALLOW KEBABS FOR FONDUE NIGHT
Filled a decorative basket with the chocolates, marshmallows, cookies, Skewers and straws to let the kids know we will be hosting our annual Family Fondue Night again.
Shh, don’t let the kids see, but I also filled with Dad’s special treat for our KY Date night later!!
Since my kids are old enough to read, the Valentines gifts will be presented separately. I will have Hubby’s gift waiting on the side table in our room. Seems more appropriate than our kitchen table, plus it will be waiting for him after the kids go to bed!!
What are your plans for Valentine’s Day? Do you have a family or couples Date Night?
