{Family Fridays} Date Night in a Jar

The one thing that I’ve been really trying to work on is my family work balance so I thought it would be a great idea to share on Fridays some family things that you can do. Now, I know as a plus size bride you might not have a family yet so I’m going to include some things for couples as well as couples with kids so that at which ever point in your planning and life it will be beneficial.

Date Night in a Jar

I found this to be a great idea. Couples need to make time to spend with each other especially when they are working on planning a wedding because the stress that can build up during this most amazing yet hectic time can be overwhelming. So I thought this was a cute idea to help with the “I don’t know, what do you want to do” dilemma that can sometimes develop. If you’re stuck for ideas for things to put into the jar, here is a list of the dares, why not play a game of dares!?

This date night jar is made with a wide mouthed mason jar and sprayed color popsicle sticks that are color coded and the tag has the explanation, if you forget. And if you are anything like me it will definitely happen.
