An Emergency Candlelight Dessert Kit!
What in the world is that, you might ask?
It is a simple bag filled with a few items to make an otherwise routine evening at home with the Happy Hubby suddenly transformed into a romantic celebration of love!
Seriously, going out on dates can be super tough to pull off – between babysitting and food expenses, a couple can rack up a bill pretty quick! The Emergency Candlelight Dessert Kit is meant to provide an inexpensive and romantic night at home while the Happy Buddies are asleep.
Simply set up the contents of the kit and enjoy your very own private escape with the man of your dreams!
What’s in an Emergency Candlelight Dessert Kit…
1. 1 package of Oreo Cakesters
So cute because these come in TWIN packages – one Oreo for you and one Oreo for the Happy Hubby! And there’s built-in portion control so that you’re not moping around during the rest of your romantic evening together complaining that you over-indulged. 🙂
2. 1 tea light candle
3. 1 box of matches
4. 2 cute Love-themed napkins
5. Tie on this cute printable tag!
One friend even told me that she and her Happy Hubby were having a rough night with their four girls. Everyone’s stress-levels were escalating rapidly. My friend remembered her Emergency Candlelight Dessert Kit, popped a movie in for the girls, and swept her Happy Hubby away into the bedroom for a private moment to regroup and step back from the present chaos. They lit the candle and ate their Oreo cakes and enjoyed each other for a few moments before heading back into the madness as a unified team.
Emergency Candlelight Dessert Kit SUCCESS!!!!!!
