Its a leap year, lets propose to our men!
It's 2020, it's a leap year, and due to that age-old tradition this means on the 29th February women can propose to men! Now, we know that we can do that any day we please - as we said, it's 2020, but it is fun to think about how we would go about it. Even now less than 1% of all proposals come from women, the sheer confidence and individuality it takes to do something totally unique is admirable.
Take a Trip
The beauty of doing this is that it doesn’t need to be romantic, it can be anywhere that evokes confidence for you. We read a story online of a woman who proposed while they were rock climbing together: can we be your friend please?
No place like home
As a couple your home is filled with those little memories that mean nothing to anyone else, but everything to you. So embrace that. Set up the mood, light the candles that you bought a few months ago, pour some wine, put on some music and make it fun. What we loved reading about the most is how none of the women got down on one knee (is this outdated in general now we wonder?) they had a drink to calm the nerves and then just did it. All of the men embraced them and they both cried, what a special moment to always remember in your home.
A gift that he will remember
The difference is that there won’t be an engagement ring - well there could be? yet from the women who we supplied with flowers there hasn’t been. There has been a gift though, some gave a watch, other ideas were bottles of whiskey and then of course, we have provided our beautiful one-year roses, which actually ties into the point above. What a great gift to have in your home that lasts for the year after you got engaged, how special and unique!
Why not try The Signature Luxe in Black. This could take pride of place on the coffee or dining table to remind you of that special day. If something more masculine is your taste The Signature Classic in black could be perfect for you, it is timeless and elegant. Alternatively, The Cashmere Round in Black and White. The mix of the feminine and the masculine is perfection.
What would you choose? we can also create anything that is totally unique to you. Make sure you share your proposal stories with us, we love them!
Lots of love,
