Date Theme: Everyone loves this Audrey Hepburn classic, why not make a breakfast date of it? Grab your fiance and your pearls for this inexpensive, creative Saturday morning date.
Date Norm: Pull a Holly Golightly and put your cells phones in a suitcase so you can’t hear any texts, email alerts, etc. You’ll be completely consumed with each other, don’t let any electronic distractions get in the way.
Music: Moon River (obviously). Wake up to this lovely song in bed to get your date started.
Holly Golightly: How do I look? Paul Varjak: Very good. I must say, I’m amazed.

Date Activity: Cracker Box Scavenger Hunt
Go on a hunt for cracker jacks with the mission to answer the question: “Do they still really have prizes in Cracker Jack boxes?” If you are lucky enough to find a prize and even luckier to find a ring, try to get it engraved. The more likely option is that you’ll find a prize but it won’t be a ring. Share the cracker jacks and make the box into a time capsule.
In the time capsule write a letter to each other with a list of what you’re excited about doing with the other person once you’re married:
- Waking up next to you
- Raising our children together
- Watching Star Wars marathons in our pajamas
Open your engagement time capsule on the morning of your wedding. You’ll be reminded of the real reason the two of you are celebrating.
If you wish to get something personalized for your spouse-to-be (like Paul in Tiffany’s), check out these great personalized gift ideas.
We especially love the personalized Tiffany Style Keychain (keeping with our theme) to give to each other on this date.
To commemorate this special date, consider personalizing each keychain with the words “I want to love you.”
This way you’ll always remember the sentiment from this delightful film when Paul says:
I don’t want to put you in a cage. I want to love you!
Quote Inspired Questions:
Holly Golightly: But I am mad about Jose. I honestly think I’d give up smoking if he asked me.
- What do you think is your biggest vice?
- Would anything or anyone make you give it up?
- Have you ever given anything up for love?
Holly Golightly: I’ll tell you one thing, Fred, darling….I’d marry you for your money in a minute. Would you marry me for my money?
Paul Varjak: In a minute.
Holly Golightly: I guess it’s pretty lucky neither of us is rich, huh?
Paul Varjak: Yeah.
- Do you identify more as a tightwad or spendthrift?
- What’s the first thing you would buy if you had a million dollars?
- What would you do with the rest of the money?
Holly Golightly: You know those days when you get the mean reds?
Paul Varjak: The mean reds, you mean like the blues?
Holly Golightly: No. The blues are because you’re getting fat and maybe it’s been raining too long, you’re just sad that’s all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you’re afraid and you don’t know what you’re afraid of. Do you ever get that feeling?
Paul Varjak: Sure.
Holly Golightly: Well, when I get it the only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to Tiffany’s. Calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there. If I could find a real-life place that’d make me feel like Tifffany’s, then- then I’d buy some furniture and give the cat a name!
- Where’s your Tiffany’s (happy place)?
- Where do you go, what do you do when you’re scared?

Holly Golightly: “Promise me one thing: don’t take me home until I’m drunk- very drunk indeed.”
