Life doesn’t stop, even if there’s a pandemic. If anything, Covid-19 has given us more reason than ever to tell our loved ones how we feel and to celebrate every special moment. If you’re looking to celebrate your engagement party at home during this time, we’re here for you! We’ve put together a list of ideas to help you celebrate at home.
If you have gardens or lush outdoor space, show it off! Host an engagement celebration in your yard. Being surrounded by gorgeous flowers and greenery is sure to be a romantic environment. Even better: an outdoor event means there’s plenty of space to spread out for social distancing.
Believe it or not, your engagement celebration doesn’t have to be over the top. If you’d rather keep the celebration to just yourself and your new fiancé, go with it! Plan a sweet dinner for your partner – try cooking a fancy new meal, like making your own homemade pasta. Or, reminisce and order take-out from your most visited dinner spot and look back at your relationship over your favorite meal.
Style your yard up with fairy lights and string lights. Get some picnic-style decorations and set up your favorite outdoor games, like cornhole or horseshoes. If your backyard isn’t quite right for a barbeque, don’t be afraid to ask a friend who does have the right set up. They’ll be happy to show off their BBQ set up!
Looking to celebrate with just your closest friends? Invite all of your best couple friends over and host a couple’s game night. Make sure to get prizes for the winners and provide a few appetizers and drinks. Throw in a casual nod to your new status by rocking our “Feyonce” dress, and you’re good to go!
Have a romantic celebration with your fiance at home by having a DIY spa night. Collect candles, lotions, oils, face masks, and hair masks to prepare for the night. Start the night with your masks, and then take turns giving each other massages.
Take a Road Trip
Okay, this one might be a bit of a stretch, but hear us out! In pandemic times, your car is basically an extension of your home, right? Take a quick day trip or one night stay. Is there somewhere nearby that you’ve been wanting to visit? Take this time to spend a long car ride together and enjoy each other’s company.
Reenact Your First Date
Sticking with the idea that your car is an extension of your home, take a drive! Whether you want to revisit your first date or where you first met, we encourage you to take a trip down memory lane. Reminisce with your partner about all the things that made you fall for each other, the memories you share, and how far you’ve come.
There you have it – our favorite ideas for celebrating your engagement at home. Take every opportunity to celebrate your engagement. Even if you have to celebrate from home, by will or because of the circumstances, your engagement is no less important.
