A proposal within the comfort of your own home can still have all the drama and excitement of a big, public proposal – except you don’t have to worry about rules, regulations, or interference from the outside world! We believe that any location can be turned into an intimate proposal space. Plus, the best part about proposing at home is that you can be as creative and romantic (and even as silly) as you want to be.
An at-home proposal doesn’t have to be difficult—all you need is a great hiding spot for the ring and a clever idea to take your S.O. by total surprise. Keep reading to get inspired and learn how to make your engagement an unforgettable experience at home!
Outdoor Picnic Proposal
If you have a pretty outdoor space to work with, consider using it to your benefit for your proposal. This doesn’t just have to mean a backyard – rooftops, balconies and not-so-public parts of a local park could work too! Put together a special meal, picnic-style, and spread out a blanket with a bottle of bubbly and some beautiful flowers.
“Travel” to Your Favourite Destination
If you can’t travel for your proposal, you can still bring the ambiance of your dream destination to your living room! Recreate your favorite destination inside your home by cooking the specific cuisine, playing cultural tunes, and decorating a room to fit the aesthetic.

Build your own At-Home Wonderland
Set up your proposal at home in your backyard oasis by laying out blankets, pillows, and cushions. You can set the mood with candles, garland, a photo collage, fairy lights, and top it off with a giant “marry me?” sign. Once you’ve popped the question, you can both celebrate in the comfort of your home all night! Make sure you’ve got all the food and drinks prepared beforehand so you can wine and dine with your new fiance!
Bring the Movie Theatre to your Living Room
Snuggle up in your own personally decorated home cinema and get ready to watch your favourite flick! Make sure you’ve set the mood with candles, plenty of comfy blankets and pillows to snuggle in, and perhaps a bowl of popcorn to share. You can plan to propose as the credits roll, or you can opt to incorporate your proposal on the big screen. Create a slideshow of all your best memories over the years to pull at your fiance’s heartstrings. The last slide could be a tailored message for your fiance, making sure that they’re distracted as you get down on one knee! Stash a bottle of bubbly on ice behind the couch so that when they say yes, you can clink glasses and celebrate!
Breakfast in Bed Proposal
The thought of getting breakfast in bed is the perfect way to distract your S.O from any thought other than warm, fluffy pancakes. This way, they’ll never suspect a thing—if anything, they’ll be thrilled by the promise of having bacon and coffee in their pyjamas. While you’re cooking, put the ring on the tray with a sweet note and fresh flowers if you can get them. Of all the ways to propose at home, this might just be the sweetest (especially if they’re a brunch-lover). Celebrate with some mimosas!
