Whether you’ve been with your partner for a long time or you’re trying to impress a new date, you might be looking for fun ways to spend time together. Now that autumn’s here, it might be the perfect time to invest in a hot tub to spice up date night. The warm water in the hot tub makes for the perfect way to unwind. With a bit of planning and the right setting, it can also be a pretty romantic location.
Spice Up Date Night with a Hot Tub
With the right environment, you can have the perfect date night right in your hot tub! Here’s how you can do that:
Prep Your Hot Tub
While a hot tub can be extremely romantic, a neglected hot tub can definitely ruin the mood. A day or two ahead of date night, test your water to ensure that the chemistry is just right and your hot tub is safe to use. Make sure to check the pH level, sanitization, alkalinity, and total hardness of the water and adjust accordingly. That way your spa will be fresh and sparkling for date night!
If you want help in keeping your hot tub clean and clear, we can assist. We can also install a stunning Covana cover that will help protect your spa and work as a beautiful gazebo that enhances the setting!
Get Creative with Your Invite
The first thing that you should do is figure out how to invite your partner. Get a little creative and make a homemade invitation or send them a little love note to join you for date night. If you want to go with something quick, you can text them with the details and include something playful or romantic to set the tone for the evening.
Set the Mood with Romantic Lighting
While the stars are already romantic enough when you’re soaking in your hot tub, you should still add a few special touches to prepare your hot tub for the night. Use dim lanterns or candles and spread them around your spa to set up a romantic atmosphere. You can also add a fresh bouquet of blooms to sweeten up the surroundings.
Plan for Food and Refreshments
Let’s be honest; no romantic night can be complete with champagne, right? Well, apart from champagne, you can also throw some cocktails together and prepare a tray of sliced fruits, grapes, and chocolate. Choose lighter food items to keep you relaxed because you don’t want to feel stuffed when you’re trying to unwind.
Create a Romantic Playlist
A romantic playlist is definitely the way to go to take your romantic evening to the next level. Spice up date night by creating a special playlist of songs that remind you two of previous dates and memories you’ve shared together. Add “your song” as well as any other romantic hits that you can think of. Think Barry White or Sting, or something a little more recent, like Alicia Keys.
Get Ready to Enjoy Date Night
