Date Nights in Dallas: Shakespeare in the Park + Giveaway

Hello everyone!

I am happy to announce a new series of posts to my blog with the theme of dates! This collection will include date ideas and date nights at home, on a budget, celebrating milestones and anniversaries and dates you can enjoy with your partner locally.

With an introduction to this collection, I am hosting a GIVEAWAY for TWO General Admission tickets to Shakespeare in the Park this summer! (That is a $30 value!)
I first discovered Shakespeare in the Park in 2011 from a very dear friend and since then, I go every year and have so much fun enjoying the show, the people, the scenery and just the culture. I want you all to enjoy it too!

What is Shakespeare in the Park?

“Founded in 1971, Shakespeare Dallas offers North Texas residents a unique opportunity to experience Shakespeare in a casual park setting, as well as providing cultural and educational programs to audiences of all ages.” – Shakespeare Dallas

What plays are showing this season?

“Join Shakespeare Dallas in celebrating our 47th season of The Taming of the Shrew and The Comedy of Errors in the summer and Othello in the fall!” – Shakespeare Dallas

Pack a picnic lunch, take some chairs and/or a blanket, and if you are older than 21, bring beer or wine to enjoy the show! If you have any other questions or concerns please read here.

In order to win these two tickets for you and your date, all you have to do is follow me on Instagram, like and comment who you would like to take on my post on Instagram and for bonus entries, follow my blog!

Winner will be announced this Friday!

With love,

Double Feature Date Night + Printables 

Since I have started dating, I have been trying to make everyday occasions just a little bit more memorable.

While I was on Pinterest I came across a pin that led me to The Dating Divas blog. I noticed all the cute crafts and Date Night ideas they had so I figured I would make my own basket too and surprise my boyfriend.

I printed the printables ahead of time to plan out my set up.



Once I figured out what I wanted to keep and what I didn’t need, I went to my local dollar store for candy and I even found boxed candy like they sell at theaters. I also found a red platter to hold the Concessions.



I didn’t spend a fortune on the candy and I went to Central Market for bottled Dr. Pepper so I could place the Soda Pop labels on them. (Dr. Pepper is Javier’s favorite beverage.)

I mentioned to Javier a few weeks before that we should have a movie night and of course he agreed.
I set up my small basket and handed him the Ticket that Admits Two.




I think it’s safe to say he enjoyed it and even though we were just getting together to watch movies, the printables made it that much more cuter.
Thanks to The Dating Divas, you can find those same printables here.
