Recreating the Kourtney & Travis Engagement Set-Up: A Beach Affair with Candles and Rose Petals

Proposing this Valentine's Day?

When it comes to romance, few things evoke as much enchantment as a beachside proposal adorned with candles and red roses. Back in the autumn of 2021, the engagement of Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker set hearts aflutter with its dreamy ambiance and setting. If you've been inspired by their picturesque moment and wish to recreate it for your own special occasion, you're in luck! In this post, i'll walk you through the steps to transform any beach into a haven of romance, complete with flickering candles and a carpet of roses or rose petals.

Step 1: Choose the Perfect Beach Location

The key to a successful beach proposal lies in selecting the ideal location. Look for a secluded spot with soft, sandy shores and breathtaking views of the ocean. Consider factors such as accessibility, any restrictions by the local council, privacy, and the timing of sunset if you wish to capture the magic of golden hour.

Step 2: Bring your vision to life

What you'll need:

  • Pillar candles in hurricane vases or tea lights (preferably in waterproof holders)
  • Fresh Naomi red rose stems OR rose petals (fresh or silk)
  • Blanket or beach towel for seating
  • Additional decorative elements such as lanterns, string lights, or driftwood (optional)

Step 3: Set the Scene

Arrive at the beach ahead of time to set up your enchanting display. Begin by laying out a blanket or beach towel to create a comfortable seating area for you and your partner. You can hire us here at Honeybee Blooms to create an amazing floral display OR you can scatter rose petals generously across the sand, creating a romantic pathway leading to the heart of your setup.

Step 4: Light the Candles

Next, strategically place your candles along the pathway and around the seating area. Opt for waterproof holders to prevent them from being extinguished by the sea breeze or errant waves. Consider varying the height and placement of the candles for added visual interest and ambiance.

Step 5: Add Personal Touches

Enhance the ambiance of your beachside oasis by incorporating personal touches that reflect your relationship. Consider bringing along a Bluetooth speaker to play your favorite love songs softly in the background or stashing a bottle of champagne on ice to toast to your future together.

Step 6: Capture the Moment

As the sun begins to set, you'll be ready for this unforgettable moment. Take a deep breath, savour the beauty of your surroundings, and when the time feels right, get down on one knee amidst the flickering candlelight and fragrant rose petals.

Step 7: Celebrate and Cherish the Memory

Whether your partner says "yes" or simply embraces you with tears of joy, take a moment to revel in the magic of this milestone. Pop the champagne, share a tender kiss, and soak in the beauty of the moment as you embark on this new chapter together.
