It may seem too ordinary in hindsight but proposing engagement at home is actually getting more popular. Partly because of limited social activities outside our humble homes, people are getting more creative than ever. You just have to be so careful because we won’t want to spoil the surprise a bit too early. But a piece of advice from Bellamy Loft, if that happens, just go with the flow!
8 Best Romantic At Home Engagement Proposal Ideas
1. Fancy dinner date (at home)
Like what they usually say, the way to a lady’s heart is through her stomach. Get started with the best dinner date ever at home by preparing your meals by scratch. Sure this can be a lot of work and it’s okay to not have this too perfect. There are a lot of resources online for recipes.
Drop by or simply order everything you may need from your local store. You can also add a bottle of wine, a few volatile candles, and flowers. Set the atmosphere with lovely romantic music playing softly in the background. Try to be as normal as possible during the conversation over dinner then once the time is right, pop the question!
2. Get help from your fluffy babies
If you have a pet dog at home, you can ask for their help to orchestrate your proposal. Create a cute note on cardboard and hang it over your pet’s neck. Once your partner comes home and your pet comes running to them, they will notice that cute note. You’ll just need to kneel down and open that box.
3. Scavenger hunt sounds fun
This requires a lot of planning and strategizing. You can work on a scavenger hunt with clues related to your story. Starting from your meet-cute to how you got together. Add also a few remarkable moments together along with your quirks.

4. Breakfast in bed with a cute note

5. Play games or indoor sport
If you’re both into games, it would be fun to place a bet over a game. Like something you usually do together, keep it casual. It can be an indoor sport or a video game, whatever you both prefer. After a few matches, pop over the question with a sweet speech on how you would want to play with them forever.
6. Over the Zoom call with the family
Before doing so, it’s always best to ensure that you got the blessing of her parents. Schedule a Zoom call with the family. Excuse yourself for a moment (maybe to drink water) and come back. Discuss with the family for a cue beforehand to ensure that your partner is unaware of the wedding proposal. Kneel down, give your speech, and hope she says yes.
