Chasing good at home date ideas in Melbourne during quarantine is a skill in and of itself. With so many social distancing laws to navigate, coming up with fun indoor activities for adults has become more of an art form, and ClassBento is here to help you paint. Whether you’re looking for fun date ideas for you and your domestic partner or chasing a romantic experience for someone new, ClassBento can help you be the smoothest you can be and make those fun date ideas truly memorable.
Art critic John Ruskin once said that “Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of intelligent effort.” Although we can’t be sure whether he was talking about good date night ideas, it’s nonetheless highly applicable. An art critic himself, Ruskin understood that in order to make good art, the effort is required. And, as we mentioned above, coming up with good date night ideas in quarantine has evolved into an art form akin to painting the Sistine chapel.
No matter the budget, if you’re looking for fun things to do at home, imagine the house is the blank canvas, and you are the painter.
Instead of being able to take your partner out and wine and dine them as you would’ve prior to quarantine, your date night ideas need to exist solely in the house and it’s your responsibility, as the artist, to paint the damn canvas! So don’t get lazy, get creative!
For instance, instead of going out to eat, transform the dining room into a restaurant. We’re not talking about hiring kitchen staff and waiters for your date ideas, but throw a tablecloth over the table, move some furniture around and light some candles! Getting creative with your at home date night ideas is important to transforming your blank canvas into iso date ideas your partner will love, and love you more for it. Making pizza? Give the house an Italian restaurant feel without having to visit Lygon Street! Shaking up some cocktails? Rearrange the kitchen like a bar and put on some good music. As we mentioned, good date night ideas in quarantine are about working with what you’ve got, and you’re an artist now. So paint the damn canvas.
Good date ideas are about experiences. Not trying to patronise here, but good date ideas are about experiences. It’s important to reiterate this because it shapes how you design your iso date night ideas. ClassBento’s gift experiences for couples have always been a hit both before and after quarantine, and they’re here to help you execute fun indoor activities for adults when social distancing doesn’t let you sit by the Yarra River whispering sweet nothings and the like.
Once you’ve painted the canvas, it’s time to start work on the actual artwork. Can’t just put a base layer on the canvas and call it finished, right (unless you’re trying something neuvo post-modern for your iso date ideas but trust us, just throwing a cloth on a tabletop does not good date ideas make)?
As mentioned above, making pizza and shaking up cocktails make for great date night ideas both in and out of the house, and transforming your living space to accommodate them is one of the best things to do at home when looking to romance up your evening. If you’re looking for something more substantial, however, we have some wonderful gift experiences for couples with a bit more time on their hands.
Redecorating the house works wonders for creating a romantic atmosphere, but changing up your living space on a semi-permanent basis is also a refreshing way to keep things... groovy? Regardless of the adjective, the point is that rolling redecoration into cute iso date ideas is a winning combination, particularly if you live in Melbourne with your significant other. Many of ClassBento’s LiveBox classes can help your date ideas leave a lasting impact and give you an experience you can remember together, especially when you can’t pop up to Northcote and take full advantage of one of Melbourne’s best pottery studios.
Looking at jazzing up your living space with a bit of greenery? Our Clay Planter workshop can help you and your special someone get dirty and make a hanging home for an indoor plant together! Our Livestream classes are some of the most unique things to do at home and can offer you all the tips and tricks you’ll need to build something together. Not ready for a baby? Making a clay planter and looking after your first indoor plant is one of the best iso date ideas that’ll bring you closer together without having to burden too much responsibility. Alternatively, our kokedama workshop can show you how to make a hanging Japanese moss ball for inside or outside. It all depends on the aesthetic you two prefer.
Maybe you’re both very fashionable people, and creating something wearable and stylish is one of the best at home date ideas you can think of. Our jewelry making classes can help you work together and make gorgeous earrings and recycled bangles. Wearing matching earrings sure is one hell of a statement, but perhaps your relationship needs that, and our range of indoor activities for adults offers you a growing range of choices when it comes to jewellery-based date night ideas and fun things to do at home.
Perhaps instead, you owe each other a pair of matching shirts? Screen printing has always been something that - you’d think - would absolutely require a studio. Yet our Screen printing LiveBox class can send you everything you require to screenprint from your living room. Make some matching t-shirts, or print each other’s faces on it. Warning: this is one of the iso date ideas that’s strictly for goofballs who are completely self-aware of how ridiculous this is. It’s one of the best indoor activities for adults who want to get playful as they fight away the quarantine blues, and also understand how much fun it is to put your partner on a t-shirt. Once you’re allowed back out on the town, Melbourne will be able to see how much you truly mean to each other.
No matter how you choose to design your at home date night ideas, remember: effort is essential. If you’re just looking at doing something simple such as taking your partner out for dinner inside your home, dress it up a little. If you’re hoping to redecorate the house, make a day of it. Whatever your taste, ClassBento is here to help you transform your iso date night ideas into the work of art they deserve to be. Go forth and paint, you Casanova, you.
