5 Ways to ‘Pop the Question’ :: Texas Dude Ranch

Monday, May 18th, 2015

BlissWood B&B Ranch is a perfect romantic getaway. Located on 500 acres of Lehmann Legacy Ranch in Cat Spring, Texas, (about 58 miles west of Houston) lies a hidden gem, known for its ability to cultivate bonfires in romances of all ages and stages.
Only an hour’s drive from Houston, this comfortable bed & breakfast inn is a beautiful setting and a blissful escape with a plethora of amenities and activities. Whether it’s just a weekend getaway for parents of young children who need quiet time to reconnect, or a long ‘staycation,’ for that 40th Anniversary celebration, BlissWood B&B Ranch has all the romantic settings a couple could ever need to form precious romantic moments that will last forever. BlissWood enjoys seeing couples of all ages at their Texas Ranch, however, they take their greatest pride and joy in seeing young couples get engaged at one of their romantic settings. Just in case that sounds like something you or someone you know would enjoy, here are five helpful ideas that you might use to ‘pop the question’ this year at BlissWood B&B Ranch.Texas Proposals

1. Play Cupid with Bows and Arrows (just don’t really shoot her)
Have you ever had a chance to use a bow and arrow? Have you ever wanted to learn how? Sure you have. And the truth is, so has she, she just may not know it yet. Women love to prove that they can do all the same thing Men can do. So let her feel good about herself and have a ton of fun doing it! Archery and romance go together like Robin Hood and Maid Marian. Play Cupid by writing down your proposal, attaching your note to the arrow when she’s not looking, and firing. Then when he goes to reclaim the arrows from the target, she can read your note. Just try to hit the target Romeo.

2. Go on an Enchanting Picnic at Enchanted Lake
When’s the last time you relaxed and went on a picnic? If you’re like most people, probably sometime in the 90’s. That’s why it’s something that will leave an impact on her and is truly the perfect mood setter to ask her to be your life partner! Is there a more romantic setting for a picnic for two than in a gazebo overlooking the sparkling waters of the well-named Enchanted Lake? BlissWood B&B Ranch even has a special proposal package that includes a guided horseback ride to Enchanted Lake, where you’ll find a picnic waiting in the gazebo, along with chocolate-dipped strawberries, flowers, and a golf cart. Your guide will discreetly lead the horses away while you enjoy a romantic picnic for two. After she’s said yes (because she’d be crazy not to, right?) you can take the golf cart back to the barn where you started.

3. Propose Over a Candlelight Dinner and Watch Her Light Up
Carol’s Restaurant offers delicious meals and friendly service. You can eat there and propose over dessert. For an intimate dinner for two, uninterrupted by other diners or too attentive waiters, you can even have dinner from Carol’s Restaurant delivered to your lodging if you want to make the evening even more intimate… Drop the Ring down into her champagne glass to surprise her or be traditional and get down on one knee. (Go on! Get down there and win her heart!)

4. Let Nature Sweep Her Off Her Feet
From the wildflowers to the wild deer, it’s hard to beat the Texas hill country for natural beauty. Whether you’re riding horses together, hiking, or sharing a canoe, the fresh air and beautiful setting will relax you both. You don’t want to be nervous when you propose, especially if you’re canoeing together. You might drop the ring in the lake.

5. Ride Away Together (Just Come Back Please)
BlissWood B&B rents horses or permits guests to bring their own horses. Imagine riding into the hills. Maybe she thinks you’re just out for some exercise. Maybe she thinks you’re birdwatching. And then, when you find the perfect romantic spot, you ask her.Horseback Riding in Texas

Plan a Unique Horseback Proposal

Sunday, March 17th, 2013

When you find the woman of your dreams, you’re going to want to make her dreams come true. That’s why you want to plan the perfect marriage proposal.  There are so many way to pop the big question. But with so many possibilities, how do you choose the one that’s best for you?  You want to do something unique but still classic and romantic.  Consider pulling out all the stops and plan a trip to BlissWood Bed and Breakfast Ranch for a unique horseback proposal at our Texas ranch.

If your idea of romance is strolling the countryside with your beloved or enjoying an intimate picnic for two, our horseback proposal package might be the right option for you.  This lovely couple recently made their own history at BlissWood.  While they’re originally from South Africa, they didn’t meet until they were both living in Houston, Texas.

Their journey began at the Red Barn – that’s where they saddled up for a romantic guided horseback ride to the scenic Enchanted Lake.  Upon their arrival to the gazebo, everything was ready and waiting for them. There was chilled champagne, fresh cut flowers, and chocolate-covered strawberries.  All he had to do was ask the question!

After he got the answer he’d been hoping for, the happy couple enjoyed a toast in their private little hideaway.  A BlissWood proposal is sure to be a memorable one, but it never hurts to capture the moment by booking a professional photo session with Skeeta Hagler, our resident photographer.

And you can always continue to celebrate the occasion with a special dinner at Carol’s at Cat Spring Restaurant.
