We admit, we are going to miss summer… but these slightly cooler temperatures have us ready to start sipping on warm apple cider and embracing the beautiful season of Fall. While it’s easy to stay cozy inside during the cooler months, we have some absolutely great date ideas to keep things exciting with your boyfriend, girlfriend, fiancee or hubby!
Enjoy! Xo, Calluna
- Take a Cooking Class
Everybody knows that fall is the season full of delicious food and tasty flavors. From homemade pies to fabulous fall cocktails, the opportunities for a scrumptious fall feast are endless. Try a cooking class for an action packed date night, not only will you gain some culinary skills but you and your date will have a great time in the kitchen. For our Colorado locals check out some of the fabulous classes offered by The Lyons Farmette, Sur La Table and Cook Street like “Quick Pickling,” “Fabulous Fall soups,” and “American pies.”
- Fall Picnic
Summer picnics seem to get all of the attention, but we believe that nothing says Fall like a cozy picnic stocked with delicious cheeses and a good bottle of wine. Embrace fall rustic décor, and set up your picnic with mason jars, warm plaid blankets and classic picnic baskets. Want to make your picnic effortless? Check out Cured’s amazing options for picnic baskets…all you have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy!
- See A Show
Enjoy a night out on the town with your date and check out some of the fantastic shows coming to Colorado this fall! The Ellie Caukins Opera House will be putting on Swan Lake beginning the first week of October, and we think the ballet will make for an incredibly romantic fall date night! Not a ballet-loving sort of couple? Check out some of the hilarious comedy shows the Dairy Center for the Arts will be putting on in Boulder.

- Go for a Hike
Fall in Colorado means some seriously gorgeous shades of yellows, oranges and reds occupying the trees, and there is no excuse to not get outside and see the beauty! So lace up your hiking boots, put on some layers and make a fabulous Fall hike the perfect date. The West Maroon Trail, The Booth Creek Trail and the Staunton Ranch Trail are perfect for a healthy fall date.
