Never in a million years did I think I would be writing a blog on how to propose during a world health pandemic which has changed the way we live.. but hey here we are. It’s the 23rd of March 2020 and I’m currently self-isolating in my home office working with fellow Aussies to try to slow the curve.
Fortunately for me, I had the ability to work from home however on the flip side, the events and hospitality have taken a massive hit from this crisis with many people too nervous to enjoy an event outdoors. Whilst our proposal experiences are safe, we understand you may be looking for a unique proposal experience you can do at home.
Isolation Proposal Idea 1 – Room Turn Down
The romantic room turn down proposal is very popular. You only need a few essential items which can provide an amazing wow factor. The Essentials:
- 50 x Led Candles
- 1 x Bag of Red Rose Petals
- 1 x Bouquet of Red Roses
- Fresh Strawberries
- Chocolate Dip or Favourite Dessert
- Develop some photos of you and your partner
- Romantic Music Playlist
Now you have the essentials, it’s time to style the room. You can use the petals to spell ‘Will you marry me‘ on the bed or floor and surround the area with candles. Prepare the room whilst your partner is out providing the ultimate surprise when they return.
Isolation Proposal Idea 2 – Video Message
You’re in isolation, it’s likely you have time on your hands so a video proposal may be perfect for you. Create a romantic slideshow or custom video expressing your love for your partner. You can get creative by using Disney films or her favourite movie to get creative. Perhaps you want to re-enact a scene from a movie.

Isolation Proposal Idea 3 – Back yard cinema
Everyone loves a romantic picnic.. why not add wow factor by turning it into your very own backyard pop-up cinema. If you don’t have acess to a projector & projector screen, you could get creative by bringing out your tv. If you do have a projector you could focus on a sheet or wall.
For your cosy picnic, simply bring out some rugs, cushions, candles then top it off with and a home-cooked meal and wine. Guaranteed for yes!
