Get some glow-in-the-dark stars (I recommend the ones from my "indoor camping" post). And plaster them all over your ceiling...
Then, see if you can't get you and him/her to bed early (but if must be dark). (Here's a tip: turn all yours clocks ahead so the kiddos bedtime comes earlier this night. Ruthless, I know.) Before you two walk into your bedroom, hand them this little invite:
As soon as the invite has been read, flip off the lights to reveal the glow of your stars! (and if the adhesive wears out, you'll see falling stars!)
Here are a few star-related ideas to compliment your evening under the stars:
1. Name a Star after them: You've probably heard of the International Star Registry where you can pay $200 for a certificate showing a star named in your love's honor. Personally, I think that's a rediculous waste of money. So, make your own certificate and write their name on one of stars on your ceiling. Voila--a star named after them!
2. Star-related snacks/dessert: Starbursts, Magic Stars cereal, Jello Jigglers in shape of stars, star fruit, star sugar cookies, cake, brownies (using star shaped cookie cutter)
3. Star-themed (romantic) music: I found these that you can listen to online for FREE.
When You Wish Upon A Star - by N'Sync
Stardust - by Harry Connick, Jr
Starbright - by Jim Brickman (piano/vocal arrangement of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star)
4. Cuddle Up as you watch a movie like Star Wars or Stardust.
After this night, your love will be thanking their lucky stars that they have you!
