Marriage Proposals with Food or at Restaurants

Whether it's a meal out or a ring on a cake, using food is a great way to surprise your sweetie with a marriage proposal.

  1. Buy chocolate covered strawberry roses and put the ring in the bouquet. When she notices the ring, ask for her hand in marriage.
  2. Try tying the ring to a cute little teddy bear and then write your proposal on the Hershey kiss wrapper that sticks out of the kiss!
  3. Freeze the ring in an ice cube and pop it into her glass of water while you're relaxing at home. She'll notice something in her glass and when she reads it, get down on one knee and ask for her hand in marriage.
  4. Bake her a cake and put the ring on top in the icing. It's hard for a women to resist a man who bakes.
  5. Have a bakery bake a cake with your proposal message inscribed on it in icing, put it in the store window, and top it with her diamond. Take her on a walk and make a special stop in front of the window. As she reads the cake, get down on one knee and pop the question. Afterwards, head inside to celebrate your engagement with your cake and champagne.
  6. Give her a box of chocolates with the ring being the center piece within the box. As she opens the box, get down on one knee.
  7. Give her a box of cracker jacks with an engagement ring inside as the prize. When she pulls out the ring, get down on one knee and propose.
  8. Buy a chocolate dipped bottle of champagne to celebrate the occasion! Tie the ring around the neck of the bottle for her to find. After you pop the question, celebrate with a glass of champagne!
  9. While at a restaurant, pretend to drop something (a napkin maybe) on the floor and have your sweetie pick it up. When she does, drop the ring in her wine glass for a surprise. As she pulls it out, pop the question.
  10. Are you sushi lovers? Have your sushi chef place the ring on her favorite Nigiri.
  11. Take her to any restaurant for any meal, though dinner usually works best. Arrange before hand to have a police officer pull you over when you leave. When he asks for your registration, have her retrieve it from the glove compartment with the ring attached.
  12. Take her to dinner at her favorite restaurant. After you've finished, excuse yourself to go to the restroom, but leave to find your waiter/waitress and tell them your plans. Order your girlfriend's favorite dessert and have the waiter put the ring on the top. Be sure to have them wait and bring it out after you are back at the table. Be ready to get down on one knee and propose while the waiter is putting the dessert down in front of her.
  13. If you girlfriend is a late night snacker, made her favorite dessert or snack with the words "marry me" on top in a garnish such as chocolate or a spice (depending on the dish). Make sure that it's on the level that she most often reaches for and it will work well if you cover it with see through saran wrap. You don't have to actually give it to her. Just be silent and let her find it for herself!
  14. Buy fortune cookies and remove the fortunes from them with a pair of tweezers. Replace th fortunes with notes asking her to marry you. You can set it up with a Chinese restaurant to bring them to you after a nice romantic dinner or have them delivered with your take out.
  15. Put different types of candy in a basket, describe how each candy reflects your relationship. For instance, Mr. Goodbar, because she has a good man. Almond Joy because you're nuts about her. 100 Grand, because having her in your life is better than 100 grand. Hershey Kisses, because you love the passionate kisses. And so on. Give her the ring last (or have it at the bottom of the basket) and say that it's for all of the reasons you just mentioned.
  16. Take her to a secluded area and have a picnic. Preferably by a lake, the ocean or whatever is in your area. Make all of the food yourself and save desert for last, but tell her how much she is going to love it (the desert that is). Place the ring in a box made of chocolate (which can be found in many fine candy stores). When it's time for desert, give her the box and be ready to get on your knee and ask her to marry you.
  17. Write will you marry me on a small piece of paper. Use tweezers to remove the fortune in a fortune cookie. Replace it with the one you made and have the waiter at a Chinese restaurant give her that cookie.
  18. When the next family gathering or party is coming up that you both will be attending, make sure they know that you will be happy to provide one of the desserts. Order a special cake that they can put your picture on and have the picture be of you all dressed up and down on one knee holding up a handmade sign that says "Will You Marry Me, (insert name)?" Don't include the picture of the ring in the photo. Keep the cake cooled and hidden until a set time when you will announce to everyone that you have brought a truly outstanding dessert that should be admired by everyone. Gather everyone around to see your dessert (with the ring ready in your pocket) and present the cake. Once she has seen the cake, bring her to the middle of the crowd, get down on one knee again and this time show her the engagement ring.
  19. Take her to your favorite restaurant that the two of you consider "special". Have a special menu made that has your proposal printed inside and have the waiter hand that menu to her. When she opens it and reads the proposal, get down on one knee and propose.
  20. Take your lady to a restaurant and after dinner have the waiter bring out an exquisite dessert with the words "Will you marry me?" written around the serving dish in chocolate syrup or icing.
  21. Take her to a sweet place such as a park late at night. Buy a bunch of Hershey's Kisses and make a trail with them taking her to a quiet place with a bottle of wine waiting and roses everywhere. Tell her "Now that I've "kissed" the ground that you've walked on, will you marry me?"
  22. Ask her out on a special romantic dinner at your house and suggest that she gets all dressed up. For desert, make her a home made cupcake. Add a special ingredient to this cupcake: the engagement ring. Bake the engagement ring into the the cupcake (make sure to check with the jeweler that it won't harm the ring). Surprise her with a candle lit dinner. While your both are eating say things like. "You are looking very beautiful this evening." and "Wouldn't it be great if we could spend our whole lives together?" Then when you are done with the meal hand her the cupcake. When she bites into it she will notice something hard is in it and pull it out her mouth. When she does get down on one knee and pop the question.
  23. Get a copy of the menu at the restaurant you're going to and add your marriage proposal as an entree' in the new revised menu. She'll be shocked when she's deciding on her meal. Watch her carefully and when you notice that she's seen it, get down on one knee.
  24. Another way to propose via a fortune cookie is to buy the cookie and steam it for about 5 minutes until soft. It will be easy to unwrap and remove the fortune. In its place, put your own "fortune" in there and reshape the fortune by folding in half and then folding again. Place the fortune cookie in the freezer and after a few hours, it will be hard again just like new - waiting to be cracked open.
  25. Have a cookout one evening at home and grill steaks with baked potatoes. After you've garnished her potato, slip the ring inside so that only the diamond is showing through. When she notices the ring, get down on one knee.
  26. Create a custom box of gourmet truffles. You can customized these boxes with your favorite photo of the two of you. Digitally alter the photo to add the words 'Will you marry me?' to the bottom. Place the ring inside in place of one of the truffles. When she reads the photo and opens the box to find the ring, get down on one knee and ask for her hand in marriage.
  27. While at a restaurant, drop your napkin on the floor, then get down to pick it up. Instead of getting back in your chair, pull out the ring and get on one knee.
  28. Take her out for dinner at your favorite restaurant. Arrange ahead of time for the ring box to be displayed on the dessert tray and have the words "Will you marry me?" be written in chocolate around the outside of the plate.
  29. On a lazy Sunday morning, cook breakfast together in the kitchen in your pajamas. As you heat up an omelet pan, ask your sweetie to grab the eggs from the fridge. Plan ahead and have the ring inside the egg carton in place of one of the eggs. As she opens the carton, get down on one knee and ask for her hand in marriage.
  30. Go to a restaurant with a couple you usually go out with. Have her pick out a desert, then have them play her favorite love song or your song for each other. Tell the restaurant to bring out a cake that you baked or had done at a bakery with the words "will you marry me" on it instead of her dessert. Then get down on one knee and ask her to be your wife.
  31. At Godiva Chocolatier stores, there are these chocolate oyster shells (to die for) with hazlenut filling. It's very easy to remove the filling, and perhaps place something small and shiny inside? That way when you're handing her the sweets you bought just for her, she'll be shocked when she finds a different sort of filling. Warning: Make sure she doesn't pop the whole thing in her mouth by telling her to separate the shells to look at the delicious filling.
  32. Take your sweetheart to a nice restaurant with a private room. Reserve the room for the evening and get a small table placed inside for the two of you. (Make sure that is large enough for your dinner.) Have a private pianist play or make you own soundtrack(s) for the evening. If she likes to dance have one for the meal and one to dance to (slow stuff only -- keep it romantic). After dancing, sit her down to give her a gift. Hand her a large red velvet jewelry box (necklace size). inside place an old key. When she asks what it is tell her it is the key too your heart, then tell her to take it out to wear it. Attach a very long length of ribbon to the key necklace, and to that ribbon attach the ring. Enjoy your dessert afterwards.
