It’s Valentine’s Day this month (as if you didn’t know!) AND it’s also a leap year making it doubly romantic – ladies, that’s if you intend to propose!
You’ll also notice that it’s the year we have the Brazilian Olympic games – maybe having it in a leap year helps everyone remember when they’re coming up – I don’t know!
Anyway back to Valentine’s and romance. Last year we were asked by a young man in love to produce an engagement ring in ice so that he could place the real thing on top and propose to his girlfriend at the Ice Bar in Central London.
Of course she said ‘Yes!’ I mean who could resist?
Adding further romance to the story their wedding is set for this 13th February, the Saturday before Valentine’s Day. No excuse for forgetting the anniversary then!
We’ve had a similar request again this year. But you don’t need to limit it to ice rings to create the perfect setting for a proposal – for example you could combine your initials in ice, present your other half with a bottle of bubbly in a chiller made of ice or flowers displayed in an ice vase. The possibilities are endless!
