Painting Date Night
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we love getting creative with our date night ideas. We were head-over-heels in love with our Picnic Date Night in a Jar and then our Movie Night in a Jar went over so well, I just couldn’t resist making another date night in a mason jar.
This painting date night is so inspired, easy, and just flat-out fun. I can’t wait until we do it again (maybe next time I’ll add a third in for the little one and make it a family date night). Let’s get started.
