on a Grand Scale
Have a plane fly a banner, or write your proposal in the sky. Have the engagement ring on hand to present to her when she notices it.
Take her to the movies, and arrange beforehand to have your proposal displayed on the screen before the film.
If you (or she) has a fence in the backyard, use Christmas lights to spell out “Will You Marry Me” on it. Add an outline of a diamond engagement ring if you're feeling creative.
Take out a full page ad for your proposal in your local newspaper (you can even include a photo of the engagement ring!)
Attend a local fireworks show, and have the coordinator announce your proposal in front of the whole town.
