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

BlissWood B&B Ranch also hosts weddings. How convenient to have your wedding at BlissWood, wave goodbye to your guests, then stay for your honeymoon. Good luck and happy hunting, all you singles out there. Book your stay today! 713-301-3235

This couple got engaged recently at Carol’s Restaurant. They met on an online dating site for Christian singles in April and quickly fell in love, according to Blisswood owner Carol Davis.

He surprised her by suggesting dinner in the country, and then surprised her again with an engagement ring.

Carol’s Restaurant is the perfect place for those in the mood for love – and for a memorable meal. The restaurant’s interior is Texas country, with appointments in cedar and cowhide. Tables are topped with white linens and votive candles, giving the room a warm glow. The menu offers Texas favorites like steaks and chops, as well as sophisticated seafood and pasta offerings.

As for the couple who got engaged at Carol’s: He is a Harley rider and his fiancé is learning to share his enjoyment of motorcycle riding.

“Oh, what love makes you do,’’ says Blisswood’s Carol Davis.

The couple is considering having their wedding at Blisswood Bed and Breakfast.

With its multiple cabins and cottages, Blisswood Bed and Breakfast offers several accommodations in a relaxing oasis on a 650-acre working ranch in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. We offer several “proposal packages.’’

One, designed for guests staying with us, includes a picture-perfect setting — and much more: Couples enjoy a guided horseback ride to Enchanted Lake; chilled Champagne and souvenir glasses waiting in the Gazebo; chocolate-covered strawberries and fresh flowers. After she (or he) says yes, a golf cart will whisk you back to your lodging. Prices start at $239 per couple, plus the cost of accommodations.

Our proposal package for non-guests includes flowers; chocolate-covered strawberries; cheese and crackers; and Champagne with souvenir glasses. The fee is $199 per couple, and includes the use of the Gazebo at Enchanted Lake.

All you have to bring is the ring!

Texas Hill Country: Perfect location to plan your Engagement

Monday, May 28th, 2012

Maybe it’s the scenery.  Maybe it’s the seclusion.  Maybe our Ranch is romantically inspirational.  But no matter the reason, potential grooms truly do love to propose at our Texas Hill Country bed and breakfast.  And we are pleased to announce that another happy couple is now on their way to wedded bliss after their weekend at BlissWood!

While the couple went to the same high school, they were in different classes and did not meet until 6 years ago.  We’re not sure how long they’ve actually been seeing each other, but the groom-to-be took action by designing a ring featuring the bride-to-be’s birthstone, peridot, surrounded by stones from his grandmother’s ring in preparation.  During a visit to the Gazebo at Enchanted Lake this weekend, the proposal was made and accepted!  The couple celebrated with a dinner at Carol’s at Cat Spring Restaurant, followed by a night at the inn and a romantic horseback ride the following morning.

All of us at the Blisswood bed and breakfast are thrilled to have been a part of yet another couple’s start to wedded bliss.  Of course, we don’t know why any couple wouldn’t take advantage of the 650 acres of gorgeous, potential proposal locations on the Lehmann Legacy Ranch!  So take advantage of a romantic weekend package getaway to our Houston area inn, and take that next step to a lifetime of happiness!

Weddings at the BlissWood Inn

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

The BlissWood Bed and Breakfast at Lehmann Ranch is known for its quiet, country charm.  Many people believe that this is the perfect environment for romance, and even weddings.  I am happy to report that our Texas bed and breakfast was recently witness to another wonderfully beautiful and romantic wedding ceremony!

A little bit of parental matchmaking magic started this couple on their way to a beautiful BlissWood wedding.  Having met the groom at church, the bride’s father decided to introduce his daughter to this charming fellow.  The couple fell in love, and became husband and wife at a very intimate Ranch ceremony with just two others in attendance.  For this couple, the serenity and ambiance provided at BlissWood was the perfect backdrop for their big day, and I am happy and honored to have been able to make their nuptials perfect.

You too can have the perfect wedding day at my Lehmann Legacy Ranch.  Whether it’s just the two of you, or if you’ve invited guests, the BlissWood can accommodate weddings of all sizes:  packages are available for intimate weddings up to 50 guests, or contact me to plan a larger event.    The 650-acre ranch offers a variety of wedding settings to make your day perfect.  Choose the Gazebo at Enchanted lake, celebrate under one of the gorgeous and sprawling old oak trees, choose to have a garden ceremony, let the waterfalls at the Oasis provide natural music during your vow-taking, choose your own perfect spot anywhere on the property during a daytrip visit.

While our newly-wedded couple did not become engaged here at BlissWood, many believe that the Ranch provides the perfect place to “pop the question.”  Treat your sweetheart to a BlissWood getaway to plan the perfect proposal.  Stroll the grounds and let the oaks witness the event, have a proposal picnic among the Blue Bonnets, or choose one of our Proposal Packages to set the scene perfectly.

Rehearsal dinners, bachelor and bachelorette party getaways, and receptions can also be accommodated right here on the property.  If you’ve chosen another wedding venue, you can come to Blisswood for a wide variety of off-site engagement and wedding photo settings.  Romance is welcome at BlissWood in any way we can help!  Check out the rest of the BlissWood website for more wedding and celebration ideas.

Where to Propose In Texas

Where to Propose in TexasSo you’re ready to take your relationship to the next level. Congratulations! Popping the question to that special someone is one of the most scary, exciting, romantic, nerve-racking, memorable moments you will ever experience.

You’re bending down on one knee and asking that person to spend their whole life with you—in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad, till death do you part. There’s no denying it’s a big deal.

No wonder you’re stressing about where to propose in Texas. There is certainly no shortage of beautiful places in this big state, so picking just one can seem a bit overwhelming.

Especially if you want to make your proposal a truly unforgettable event.

Propose in Texas at BlissWood B&B

We’d like to tell you about a young couple we hosted a few months back. They came to BlissWood Bed and Breakfast to celebrate their fourth-year anniversary of dating and to relax and unwind in the country.

What she didn’t know is that he was planning to propose at the end of their time at BlissWood.

While they were here, they stayed in the Lanai House at the Oasis, a tropical paradise among the rolling prairie of the Texas Hill Country, and enjoyed horseback riding and other activities.

It wasn’t until they shared a dinner at Carol’s Restaurant that he finally popped the big question. Of course, she said yes! The two of them will no doubt remember their time together at the ranch fondly for years to come.

If your searching for the perfect spot to propose in Texas, take a look at what we at BlissWood have to offer. We even have special Texas proposal packages available for the guy (or girl) that wants to take their proposal to the next level. Think flowers, a picnic, and a horseback ride to the Gazebo at Enchanted Lake.
