Scrambling to put together a fun-filled romantic Valentines Day weekend? Here are a few last minute ideas that should make your planning a little easier! 
1.) Local Color Flower is hosting an Open studio tonight! Friday February 12th, 2016 from 6:30-8:30pm come out to the studio and design her own bouquet. This is the perfect date night, just grab snacks, a bottle of wine, and your sweetheart! No registration needed, just show up!

 2.) Go to a museum! Simple & fun, plus Baltimore has a lot to choose from 🙂 I suggest checking out The American Visionary Art Museum . After you all are done exploring the interesting exhibits, end the date with dinner at their newest restaurant Encantada . The decor in Encantada is like nothing else in Baltimore!

3.) Free cider-mill tour at Millstone Cellars! Yup, it’s free. I’ve toured their facility before with a group of friends and it was a fun experience and wouldn’t mind doing it again. You will taste many interesting flavors of ciders, where you and your sweetie can pick your favorite for purchase! This weekend they’ve made it a little more special by having cider & cheese pairing, fudge tasting, and specialty ciders on draft! FYI the tour is inside of a building but it’s cold, so bundle up! Tours this weekend will be on Saturday February 13th & 14th from 12-5pm. No reservation needed.

 4.) Wine tasting at Bin604on Sunday February 14th from 5-7pm tickets $29. This tasting is focused around wine & chocolate! I’ve attended one of their tastings before and I really like the set up of the event. You’re free to roam around the store and taste test as you please. While you’re their, the two of you can pick out a special bottle to enjoy later that evening together 🙂


Hopefully these ideas got your creativity juices flowing. Making a reservation at a fancy restaurant is definitely nice, don’t get me wrong, but how about trying something different or even adding one of these ideas in addition to dinner. Let me know in the comment section how your Valentine’s Weekend went! Have Fun, no stress 🙂
Until Next Time,
