There’s nothing better than spending quality time with family and friends. There are many ways to do just that, but with the air turning cooler and leaves starting to fall, now is the perfect time to add a fire pit to your backyard and enjoy the firelight with hours of conversation and laughter and when you get hungry, you can roast some grub over the open flame. Getting the opportunity to enjoy a fire pit in autumn is a great way to create lasting memories, regardless of who you are with. We’ve grilled up five reasons to use a fire pit in the fall.
1. Host a scrumptious s’mores party
Hosting a s’mores party can be great fun for all ages and getting the children involved in making one of their absolute favorite desserts is always a crowd pleaser. While the original version is pretty awesome by itself, you can spice it up a bit by adding a gourmet touch by using high-end chocolates or different types of cookies and fruit is perfect for a grownups version of the s’mores party. Some more examples include an assortment of graham crackers, marshmallows, chocolate, Dulce de leche, peaches, bananas, or strawberries and peanut butter cups. Don’t forget you’ll also need some sticks to roast the marshmallows on, and of course, the perfect outdoor heating of a fire pit. There’s nothing more enjoyable than watching the entire crowd of all ages make and gobble up their very own tasty creations! Considering the fire pit, you may like the Luxo Parma. With this tripod style fire pit, you get a 2-in-1 design allows you to enjoy a truly rustic open fire and grilling experience whether you are at home, on a camping trip, or at the beach. So go ahead and make everyone happy by throwing the ultimate s’mores party for a night everyone will remember.
2. Get together with family and friends
What better way to get together with family or friends than having a nice and warm fire in your fire pit with casual conversation sipping on wine or hot cocoa and relaxing and sharing stories from times past. Having friends and family over with the use of a fire pit will also allow you to extend the use of your backyard well into the cooler months. If you prefer a table top fire pit, you may like the Luxo Branton. This 81cm model offers both a fire pit and it doubles as a BBQ grill, so if you get hungry, the fire is already roaring and ready to cook your food. Now you can sit back and thoroughly entertain your guests for a fantastic evening.
3. A romantic at-home date night
Every now and then the kids are with friends and it is time to remember that special person in your life. A fire pit brings that warm and romantic feeling to an evening with your significant other. It’s a time when you can share a nice glass of wine or just a sit back under the stars, being warmed by the fire from the fire pit. With the romantic setting, you will find yourself enjoying the quiet time with that someone special and having a very special date night for two in your backyard. Absolutely perfect for nights like this, the Luxo Jyoti is a stylish fire pit that is also a BBQ grill.
4. Get recharged
Ever need a break to regroup or recharge the batteries? A fire pit can help by creating a relaxing environment, so you can feel re energised and ready to take on anything that comes your way. You could also bring a small light so you can enjoy reading your current favourite a book that you might want to catch up on or use this time around your fire pit to meditate and clear your mind. Or, you could turn on some music for added peace and comfort while relaxing with your fire pit.
5. Instant camping trip
If you love to camp, but don’t have time to get away or your family is involved with lots of activities that prevent you from taking that lovely camping trip. A fire pit can be used to set the stage for your at home camping trip. Get your food cooking over the flames and bring out a tent and some sleeping bags to get the whole family in the camping spirit. You can tell stories and roast marshmallows to add to the element of creating a camping expedition right in your backyard.
