Dinner in a Treehouse

The key to being creative is doing ordinary activities in unusual places. Dates like these are great for spicing up a relationship and are usually more fun as well. One that’s awesome is to have dinner in a treehouse.

You can make it a simple dinner or an elegant one with candles and the works. Music would add to the atmosphere and allow dinner to be followed by dancing. Treehouses are pretty cool because they usually have a nice view, and it gives the date a Swiss Family Robinson or Tarzan flavor to it.

What you need for this dinner in a treehouse romantic date idea: 

Well, for one thing, in order to have dinner in a treehouse you need to have a treehouse or at least access to one. Which means you may need to do some searching online. Maybe you can find one in your area that you can rent if you don’t already know someone that has one.

If you want to make a long weekend or romantic getaway you could book one of these amazing treehouse destinations.

They aren’t the most common of things to own. You also need extension cords that can run up there, unless it already has its own electricity. This lets you have light for your date, and can power a movie after your dinner. Make sure to have the table and everything set up beforehand. Good preparation makes a date go more smoothly.  

Are you going to buy the food for dinner or are you going to make it yourself? For some great ideas on food to make check out my food blog, In the Kitchen with Matt.

My commentary with this romantic date idea: 

Ever since I was about 3 or 4 we had a treehouse in our huge eucalyptus tree. The treehouse was about 12 feet long and 8 feet wide. It wasn’t a huge house, but perfect for us kids. The floor was about 18 feet off the ground.

I never was able to have a date up in there, because by the time I started dating, the house was old and rickety. There was no telling what would happen if you went up there, let alone two people eating dinner.

But my brother’s friend used our treehouse for a creative date with his girlfriend back in the day, and she absolutely loved the date. They even ended up married. Coincidence? I think not.

If you are looking for something really romantic and creative to do, something unique and out of the ordinary plan a dinner in a treehouse. I promise you will win major bonus points with this date.
