Twinkle Light Ceiling
If your significant other is a romantic, a twinkle light ceiling is the way to go. Many sets of string lights are needed for the twinkle light ceiling. Light clips with adhesive backing are excellent for mounting your lights without putting holes in the ceiling. Try using your loved one’s favorite color! Do not mix and match LED string lights with incandescent for consistency. The entire room will look magical when using a twinkle light ceiling.
Rope Light Words
Do you usually get tongue-tied or stage fright when you’re on the spot? Spell it out. Pop the question without any awkward lead up. You will need several feet of ½ inch rope light, the accessories to go with it, and a friend. Plan out a phrase (ie. “Marry Me?”) on the floor and zip tie the letters together where overlap occurs. Then, with a friend, use rope light mounting clips to attach to the wall.

A custom marquee sign just for your BAE is a show stopper. Easily make a DIY marquee sign by constructing letters out of a foam board, poster board, and a string of patio lights.
Give yourself a better chance of hearing “yes” by creating an intimate proposal setting with the use of specialty lights.
