Buying a home at Boulevard means one thing—living in a space caringly crafted for your lifestyle. And that includes your love story. So take a few of these ideas to plan a unique take on date night spent right at home!
Sure, you could keep it easy and effortless—movie night, anyone? Or you could add a little bit of spice for a truly next-level experience. Because when the scene is set at Boulevard, date night is nothing less than extraordinary.
Let’s start off simple with an age-old favorite: a home-cooked meal, of course! But this time, why not add a fun little twist? Pick a country you and your other half have always wanted to visit and prepare a meal from that place. Or if you’d prefer a healthy dose of competition, why not try out this homestyle Chopped challenge to really get your creative juices flowing. You can choose to enjoy your culinary masterpiece in one of the many spaces in your home, or you can dine alfresco at one of Boulevard’s striking pocket parks—be it the greenery at The Kitchen or the modern structures at The Office.
Maybe your style is less “I’ve got this” and more “show me the way.” Then why not take an online class from the comfort of your own home? Airbnb has an entire section of online experiences dedicated to taking you from amateur to expert. Keen to become the best Mexican street taco maker in Melrose? Determined to make your sushi game the talk of Skyline? Or maybe you want to perfect the intricacies of masala chai under the watchful (virtual) gaze of a professional. Either way, Airbnb’s got you covered.
Incidentally, so does Dandelion Chocolate. This San Francisco–based confectioner will elevate your date night with its menu of online experiences. You can learn to make your own truffles or indulge in a chocolate tasting for a truly indulgent date night. And while you’re enjoying your homemade truffles, take in a virtual tour of a museum or an online exhibit featuring your favorite artists courtesy of Google Arts & Culture.
Perhaps you’re thinking, “Why mess with the classics?” To that, we say game on. Game nights bring effortless fun and laughter—especially when you least expect it. So break out a Scrabble board. Or Codenames: Duet. Or Bananagrams. And let the good times roll! If you’re feeling brave, why not try your hand at Tell Me Without Telling Me or The Hygge Game? And you can always take your daring duo to The Hangout for a little soul-baring on the hammocks.
If you want to take it easy for date night, treating yourselves to a romantic at-home spa session has never been easier. Make a day of it by stopping off at Persimmon Place. Fill your cart with face masks, bath bombs and indulgent snacks before settling in for a relaxing soak at the most whimsical spa in town—your en suite bathroom.
And when it’s all said and done, bring your perfect date to a poetic end with s’mores and coffee by the fire pit at The Rec Center. Revel in the comfort of being with your loved one, knowing that Boulevard’s thoughtfully crafted homes and outdoor spaces are the perfect backdrop for the perfect date.
