Maybe one positive aspect of the epidemic is the continuous precious time you get to spend with your partner at home, away from everyone else. However, if you’ve been contemplating a proposal, the outside is generally out of the question at this time. That doesn’t mean you have to put it off any longer.
At-home proposals can be just as unforgettable and exciting as those that take place on the street. Let this article help you organize an exciting engagement in the comfort of your own home and explain to you how this approach can even enrich the overall experience of your big day. Ultimately, home is the person, not the place.
Get the Help of Your Pet if You Have One
Including your pet in an at-home engagement is a great way to show your partner that you care about them as much as they care about you if you know how much they love animals. Suppose you wish to give the actual jewelry in person. In that case, you can engrave the question on a tag and let your pet wear it, or you can loop the diamond engagement ring on your pet’s collar to surprise your partner. For the ultimate delicious surprise, bigger dogs can bring in a card or envelope as an added flair.
Express with Flowers
Every lady dreams of waking up to a giant package of beautiful flowers, pastries, and a diamond ring. You have the chance to make her wish come true. Get down on one knee with her favorite bouquet, deliver a passionate monologue, and allow time for her to say yes.
Later, you can plan a full day of activities. Relax by treating yourselves to the spa, a fine dining experience at home, and scented candles and jazz music playing throughout the property.
Serve Her Breakfast in Bed
If your girlfriend is a waffle enthusiast, this at-home proposal plan cannot be more adorable. The best way to wow your guests is to get a gorgeous tray, decorate it with blooms and fruit salad, and then serve up a variety of their favorite breakfast food on spectacular dishware. Alternatively, you can print up a sign, have it framed and add it on display. Or you can also try to keep the surprise a little while and cover the meal underneath the metal cloches you see in luxury restaurants until you’re ready to pop the question. One dish should be left untouched but still have a cloche covering the “meal”—that’s where the ring is hiding.
Build a Cozy Corner and Prepare a Speech
This low-key, intimate at-home engagement concept is ideal for couples who enjoy nothing more than a relaxing, pleasant evening indoors. Gather some throw cushions, a nice comforter, and arrange a candlelit walkway to the court. Set up a meeting with her and compose a monologue in which you thank her for everything she has done for you, everything that makes you love her, throw in a poem if you want, and conclude it with the magic words. Remember to have some Kleenex on hand!
Set Up a Treasure Hunt
Organize a scavenger hunt around the house to make your significant other struggle for the question. Even if you have a small flat or space, you can still make it work if you have the time to prepare plus a bit of ingenuity. You can start at the door with a sequence of hints that hold a lot of meaning to you and your partner. This can include where she always fold her clothes or where you first said those three words to her. The quest should eventually take her to find you on one knee with a beautiful ring when they get home. Remember to have a camera set up in front of your final location so you can relive the event later once she’s taken everything in.
Prepare a Dinner by Candlelight
It’s a classic because it doesn’t get more lovely than a candlelit supper. You can reproduce a favorite restaurant meal, make a particular dish you know they’ll enjoy and lavish, or even order takeout for a special occasion.
To create an intimate ambiance, change the lighting, scatter petals all around, arrange romantic music, and serve up some beverages. You can write the question on paper and place it on top of your dessert or put the ring on top of one of the meals. These are two examples of creative ways to pose your query. Just ensure it’s visible so that it won’t be mistaken for food.
It’s easy to propose at home if you know where to hide the ring and come up with an intelligent way to surprise your partner. Even while a public announcement can be emotional and significant, many couples choose something a bit less open. In addition to making the proposal less stressful and more intimate, proposing at home allows you a wide range of creative methods to demonstrate your feelings—literally.
