5 Food Proposal Ideas

5 Food Proposal Ideas. You’ve decided that you want to pop the big question to your other half, but how are you going to propose? Will you go down on one knee in of a beautiful sunset? Will, you go on holiday and propose on the beach? Will you get dressed up, go out for a fancy meal and ask this question with a glass of champagne in hand?

For the food-fanatic fiancĂ© to be, you may want to incorporate their love of everything edible in your proposal. Here are our top five food proposal ideas,that we guarantee they’re going to love.

Two forks together with a love heart

Tell your partners fortune:
If your other half is a lover of Chinese food, create your very own custom fortune cookie with the message, “Will you marry me?” inside. There are companies who can do this for you, but it's easy enough to do yourself. Fortune cookies are malleable when heated, so all you need to do is zap it in the microwave for a few seconds until it becomes soft, unfold it, put your message inside and then refold. For more in-depth, instructions check out this guide. This is a great way to propose if you want something low key at home or a Chinese restaurant. Just swap the cookie they give you without them seeing.

Say it with cake:
Any occasion is better with cake, such as your birthday, your graduation and of course, your wedding day. Most celebrations involve cake, so why not use cake in your proposal?

Be sure to get your partners favourite flavour cake to make this extra special but don’t put the ring inside the cake where they can’t see it and may accidentally swallow it. We suggest if you're using a cupcake, push it into the top with the diamond poking out.

A marquise cut diamond is a great choice (many jewellers, such as Diamonds Factory, now offer this stunning style as standard) as the elegant shape looks like dainty crystallised sugar decorating the frosting. If you prefer a big cake have a message written on the top and the ring in your pocket. Afterwards, you can enjoy a yummy cake together to celebrate.

Favourite food:
This can be any sort of take away or home-cooked meal that your partner loves. If you’re planning on doing this at home, we've got some ideas for you:

● If pizza is their thing, let them open the pizza box to find a ring in the middle with the words, “Will you marry me?” written on the box.

● Making burgers? Before you hand out the food, put a sticker on the wrapper of the burger, or even put the ring in the bun (like with the cupcake).

● If you're worried that nerves are going to get the better of you when it comes to asking them to marry you then let the food speak for you and spell it out with customised sweets or chocolate for dessert.

Restaurant setting:
There’s something about a restaurant proposal that gets us emotional every time. Whether you’ve chosen a romantic dinner at your favourite restaurant, or a special reservation at the five-star eatery you’ve always dreamed about going to, there is nothing sweeter than sharing a meal together before the big moment.

Make sure you call ahead and see what services the restaurant provides as some can help with coordinating the extra flourishes to make the moment truly special such as flowers, champagne or special desserts. You could even ask for your very own balcony spot or corner of the restaurant.

A weeknight is generally quieter than weekends so planning your engagement on a less popular evening will make the atmosphere of the restaurant feel a little more intimate.

Ice cream:
Contact your partner’s favourite ice cream brand to see if they’ll customise a tub of ice cream, changing the flavour name to read “Will you marry me?”. For a lover of all things ice cream, this would definitely be the best proposal. Just make sure they read the question before diving straight into the tub, desperate for that first spoonful.

If you and your partner love to eat, these foodie proposals are sure to delight. Choose your favourite and get planning.
