Make Your Home the Perfect Oklahoma Date Night Location This Valentine’s Day

January 28, 2022

With Valentine’s Day steadily approaching, you’re likely trying to come up with the perfect way to spend the evening with your loved one. Sometimes, the mere thought of making phone call after phone call to seemingly every restaurant around the city in an attempt to make a reservation is draining in itself. That’s why at Homes by Taber, we’ve come up with a number of ways you can spend the evening without being squeezed into the restaurant waiting area until your name is called. With these date night ideas, you’ll be able to turn your home into a scene straight out of a romcom movie.  

Try your hand at a cooking class

Nowadays, you can truly find an online class on just about anything—so take full advantage of that idea this Valentine’s Day and search for the perfect cooking class for you and your partner to do together. With traditional recipes from Italy, Paris, Japan and more right at your fingertips—you’ll feel as if you’re travelling the globe without ever leaving the comfort of your home. With our gourmet kitchen designs to help you as well, you’ll be able to jump into the role of chef with ease. 

There are also incredible opportunities to whip up your own dinner at home using some of the meal-kit companies that are on the rise. HelloFresh, Blue Apron and EveryPlate are just some of the companies you can order from to get fresh ingredients delivered right to your door. With dozens of meal options to choose from, you’ll surely be able to find the perfect meal for your Valentine’s Day dinner date.

Create your own tasting night

If you’re not quite a professional in the kitchen yet, try easing into the idea with an at-home tasting night. Pick your favorite theme: whisky, wine, ice cream, chocolate or whatever your heart desires, and use your kitchen island to set up your own tasting stations for you and your partner to go through. Take notes on some of your favorites and get even more into it by figuring out what additional delicacy pairs best with each. 

Put away the electronics

We’ve grown so attached to our electronics that sometimes, the thought of not having them for one night makes us a little wary—but perhaps that’s exactly what you need to do in order to plan the perfect date night for your valentine. 

As children, we took every opportunity to entertain ourselves—coming up with games on our own to fill our days. So why does that need to stop? Light a fire in the outdoor fireplace, make s'mores and have an impromptu camp-out in your spacious outdoor living space—or open up a bottle of wine, break out the board games and spend the evening revelling in each other’s company. 

Relax in your at-home spa

There’s nothing quite as romantic as a couple’s spa day—except maybe a couple’s spa day without the price tag. Creating your own spa treatment at home is an incredible way to spend Valentine’s Day this year—and the primary bedroom and bathroom suite in your Taber home is the perfect location for one. Taber bathrooms already resemble a spa atmosphere with incredible walk-in showers and jetted tubs available in our floor plans—so slip on some matching slippers and robes, make your own face masks and body scrubs, enjoy a refreshing pitcher of infused water and spend a relaxing night at home.

Try out a new hobby

What better way to spend an evening than by trying something new? With plenty of space throughout your Taber home and flex room options scattered throughout our floor plans, you’ll easily have the ability to try out a new hobby on Valentine’s Day. 

Instead of going out for a wine and paint class, this activity can easily be recreated at home. Plenty of stores offer cheap blank canvases and an array of paints for you to pick through. Stock up on supplies, browse Pinterest or YouTube for inspiration and tutorials and get to work. Who knows—you might surprise yourself with the masterpiece you create. 

Sometimes, staying in with a good book is a great way to spend an evening alone, but it could also be a great way to spend an evening together. Head out to your favorite book store and pick out a book for yourself, or swap some of your favorite novels and spend the rest of the night discussing your favorite scenes. Whatever you do, adding in your personal hobbies will surely be a success. 

A night on the Oklahoma town

While there are plenty of activities to do at home, sometimes it is nice to get out of the house every now and then. In a bustling city like OKC or Tulsa, you’ll always have a list of activities to choose from—and this year, there are plenty of events popping up that would be the perfect way to spend the evening with your partner. 

The largest arts, crafts and boutiques show in the state, An Affair of the Heart, will be open from February 11-13 this year—and it is definitely worth the trip. The show will be from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Sunday. Spend the entire day among the rows of hand-made jewelry, furniture, clothing and more at this incredible event at the OKC Fairgrounds.   

Sometimes, your ideal date night offers a flawless blend of luxury and laughs. If this sounds like the perfect way to spend your Valentine’s Day this year, make your way to Twenty6 Lounge in OKC for their comedy show event featuring Just Nesh at 10 p.m. on Monday, February 14. If you’re looking for laughs and willing to delay your Valentine’s outing a few days, grab tickets for the Tim Allen comedy show at the River Spirit Casino Resort in Tulsa, OK on Friday, February 18. 

Fall in love with your home

Valentine’s Day offers the perfect excuse to do something special for your loved one—and your Taber home makes the perfect destination for whatever you have planned. With our proudly overbuilt promise, we can assure you that the home you choose will be built with you and your family’s needs at the forefront.
