Hi everyone, I’m Astra from ‘a journey to a dream‘ and I’m very excited to be doing my first ever guest post, thank-you so much Jane for inviting me over to your lovely blog 🙂

My hubby and I recently celebrated our 5 year anniversary since the day we flew to Ireland to begin our life together, since then we have done sooo much but now we are settled, married and saving for our dream. I had been trying to think of unique (free!) ideas for a celebration date night at home and since we’re such big kids I knew a romantic living room fort would be right up our street 🙂

It took me about 3 hours to put together, just using what I had in the house. I took down the curtains from our spare room and hung them from the light, re-arranged the furniture a bit, added a few finishing touches and VOILA!

I used to make tones of forts and dens as a child and it is so much fun, adults should definitely make more forts! Especially people looking for free date night ideas, we left ours up for nearly a week and every night was extra special, super romantic and the fort created such a fun light hearted atmosphere. We played board games, drank sparkling apple juice and watched old movies, it was brilliant 🙂

I hope our fort will inspire couples to be creative with their adult nights in, be childish, laugh and play, why should the kids have all the fun?!And don’t forget you can do it completely for free!

– Astra xx
