We asked innkeepers to share their ideas for great ways to pop the question. We've heard back from a number of innkeepers and will share their ideas along with some fun Valentine's Day adventures in upcoming blog entries. Here's one from the Judy Hotchkiss at the Prospect Hill B&B. She told us "This worked so well for one man we must pass it on." While one Prospect Hill guest was outdoors strolling around with his girlfriend, he stooped down to admire the grass. Then, quickly, while still "down on his knee" he pulled out the ring box and proposed. Judy shares that this also works well in the winter snow.
"Our inn--like many others--keeps interesting little boxes on hand to aid in popping the question," says Judy. "We have a large heart-shaped box which can be filled with over a dozen home-baked chocolate chip cookies and a ring box OR the ring tied to a cookie or attached to the underside of the box. It makes a lovely keepsake for sentimental brides," she finished.
Innkeepers love to help with marriage proposals. They are happy to bring out a third course at the end of breakfast, help hide rings or help deliver messages of endearment or love.
