Our plan for the evening was three-fold:

1. Dress up Fancy

2. Capture the Moment

3. Have Fun

I am pleased to say that we accomplished all 3 of our goals!  

Now it is time for us to share our 10 Fabulous Tips for a Fantastic Mother Daughter Date Night:

#1 – Keep it Simple. Little girls are easy to please!  All they want is your focus and attention.

#2 – Dress up.  Kids love to get dressed up.  Make a point to join in the fun and let your daughter know you are doing it for her.

You can easily make fancy hair with the Lilla Rose Hair Accessories.  Check out this video we made at the beginning of our date night….4 fancy hairstyles in less than 6 1/2 minutes!

#3 – Capture the moment.  Ask your husband or friend to do a quick photo session with you and your daughter.  This makes her feel important and helps you remember the special night.

#5 – Plan some special treats.  I cannot tell you how  excited our girls were to eat the fruit-popsicles.  This treat is so simple to make with cookie cutters, melon, and a few wood kabob sticks.  We also enjoyed Sammi’s Secretly Skinny Double Chocolate Brownies.

#6 – Talk to your daughter.  Ask her questions about school, life, friends……take this opportunity to really connect with her.  Here are some great tips to get you started.

#7 – Invite a good friend to share the evening with.  Just making a plan with Sammi helped me take the night to a whole new level.  Our kids were excited to share the evening together, and it made it feel extra special!

#8 – Play a game.  Kids love games!  We played Quelf Jr., and the girls were giggling the whole time.  Especially when Sammi had to pretend she was a dinosaur on the prowl and when I smelled Talia’s armpit and told her it smelled like cookies.

#10 – Say I love you.  End the evening with lots of hugs and kisses, and don’t forget to tell your little girl that you love her.  It is even better when you can tell her 3 specific things you love about her!

A huge part of our fun evening was playing with the Lilla Rose hair accessories.  I had never used one of their Flexi Clips before Dory sent us some samples, and I have to say I was quite impressed.  It takes a bit to get used to how they work (and I am at a disadvantage since I am left handed), but once you do they are incredibly versatile.  I love how quickly you can put your hair up and how fabulous the clips look.  The little girls felt special when we put them in their hair, my youngest said, “It’s so beautiful, mom!”

  1. What great ideas for a fun girls night… I would add painting nails to the list. (o: Thanks for sharing (and for linking up to the #Talented Tuesday Link Party).

  2. This is a really cute idea! I can’t wait till my LO is of age and we can hit the town! My goal is to take her to NYC or SF for a ladies weekend and to see Wicked πŸ™‚

    Stopping by from Mom Resource πŸ™‚

    Cheers-

  3. I usually let my hair dry naturally, so I won’t include that time, but it usually takes just 20 minutes from start to finish.

  4. I usually get my hair done in about 10-15 min. Sometimes quicker if I just throw it in a messy bun!

  5. As long as I washed my hair in the morning, my going out at night routine is very simple and quick. I have long thick hair and usually braid or wear it up.

  6. I don’t really go out on the town, but it only takes me about 5minutes to do my hair.

  7. It feels like it takes me forever to do my hair. I have to change/ fix it at least twice.

  8. Less than 5 minutes, usually. I always wear my hair in a bun, and sometimes use a flexi-clip. πŸ™‚

    1. As I am neither a Pinterest or Twitter user, I cannot obtain any more entries. Good luck to the winner. Lilla Rose has some really great hair accessories!

  9. It takes me probably 15-20 minutes. That is why I don’t fix my hair very often. πŸ™‚ I often wash it and brush it and hope for the best. πŸ™‚

  10. Depends on what I do with my hair… if it’s a simple bun, maybe five minutes. If I decide to go crazy and curl or straighten it, waaaay too long! πŸ™‚

  11. What a precious idea! My daughter would adore this – definitely filing it away for future use! Thanks for the giveaway too! πŸ™‚

  12. I’m simple…maybe 10 minutes if I’m fussy. I usually do my hair in the car en route while hubby drives!

  13. Typically, it takes about 10-15 minutes for a hair for a night out… whenever I get one. I usually spend more time getting the kids ready for mom being gone then mom actually dressing up.

  14. I’m not a super-fancy person but I still am taking more time now to fix my hair for nights out (or for church) than ever before. Probably anywhere from 10-25 minutes on my hair depending on what I do & how fancy I want to go.

    I’d sure love to win these hair accessories for my daughter & I. Thanks for the chance to win!
