Proposal Ideas in Washington,

1. Blooming Cherry Blossoms

One of the things that Washington, D.C. is best known for outside of government and politics
is its extravagant display of blooming cherry blossoms around the perimeter of
the Tidal Basin. If you live in the D.C. metro
area, consider a springtime stroll around the lake. Find a bench to sit on, and
declare your desire to spend the rest of your lives together. Another romantic
option would be to pack a picnic blanket, a basket of gourmet goodies, a bottle
of champagne, and an affordable wedding ring set
 and set up
camp for a picnic proposal under a blooming cherry blossom bower.

Alternative: There is also a lovely, meandering rose garden, the
Kathrine Dulin Folger Rose Garden
, outside of
the Smithsonian Castle that offers a longer growing
season and more opportunities for creative proposal ideas in the great outdoors.

2. Delicious Ethnic Cuisines

We’ve all seen the movies with the candlelit Italian restaurant and
glasses of wine. While there is nothing wrong with the tried-and-true romantic
classics, you may also wish to consider more creative proposal ideas, such as a
different kind of culinary venue. Washington,
is uniquely suited for food
adventures with its wide variety of different ethnic restaurants. For something
different, start the adventure of a lifetime at an Ethiopian restaurant such as
where you will sit on intricately patterned cushions and eat with your hands.
Talk about your future hopes and dreams while you feast together. Then slip the
engagement ring from your affordable wedding ring set onto her finger while you
wipe each other’s hands with a warm, wet cloth after your meal. For a more
romantic experience, consider requesting a private room at the restaurant of
your choice or getting reservations for a time when you may have the restaurant
mostly to yourselves.
