Describe your idea of a perfect date.
Honestly, that’s a tough one. But, I’d have to say November 25th. Because it’s not too hot, not too cold, the days are overcast, maybe light rain, but it’s cool all round!
But… I’ve always considered having a picnic to be a fun, romantic and relaxing experience. And, thanks to Picnic-Perfect Ltd. my picnic dreams were realized (on Valentine’s Day, of all days❣).
Waterville Estate, described on its website as “Nestled in the lush, tropical verdant Santa Cruz Valley, undisturbed by the bustle of modern day living, ” made it seem as though we had been whisked away to another island, surrounded only by the other couples, our hosts and the bugs singing their night songs.
Though meant to be under the magnificence of the night sky, rain was like nah, not today and Picnic-Perfect didn’t skip a beat in setting up under tents . The cushy blankets, fluffy throw pillows and basket at my side didn’t make me miss the grass at all as I kicked my shoes off and got comfy with my SO. 😏
And peep the cute welcome note we got. 👇🏽
Also, if you look to the far bottom left of the above pic, you’ll catch a glimpse of the cheese that paired with a most scrumptious Olive Loaf (which I meant to take pictures of but I was hungry, I’m sorry☹️). I followed up my Olive Loaf with dinner of wild rice, Parmesan crusted salmon and veggies, accompanied by our non-alcoholic mimosa (because everyone has to get home safely afterward ofc!) and a very attractive Red Velvet Cheesecake. Dinner led to conversation (and some minor cuddling) which led to MINI-GOLF!🏌
Because I’ve never played Mini-Golf before (or real golf at that) I was excited to try it out because I’m just playful by nature, so games are my thing. After about 10 misses the ball finally made it to the hole and victory was mine! My bf didn’t do pretty bad either (actually he did better than I did, but, this is my blog😂😂). But as people that really enjoy new experiences the Mini-Golf for us was one of the most enjoyable events of the night, because well not long after this a bug flew into his eye and then it got swollen and we ended up leaving.🤦🏽♀️…. But
But not before we had a mini photoshoot, set up for us to immortalize this Valentine’s Day experience! It included props, a professional photographer and lots of laughs.
The picture below is the selfie result from the picture above!
Earlier that day I was a bit worried as the rain had fallen, and well naturally the place would be wet. So my brain was running wild with how it was going to turn out. Needless to say, it was PICNIC-PERFECT!
As a person who doesn’t particularly celebrate Valentine’s Day, I could think of no better way to have spent this one. A super special thanks to Picnic- Perfect Ltd for inviting me to indulge in an evening filled with love, laughter & happiness! And I’d definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to have an intimate,simple but fun time!
