There is a surplus of fantastic activities that you can enjoy around the fire pit. Some people frown when fall comes around because they love experiencing their outdoor living spaces while it’s warm. However, the advantage of adding a fire pit or outdoor fireplace to your property is that you can enjoy your patio area a bit longer. Of course, the benefit of owning a fire pit is its warmth and toastiness. Then, there’s the aesthetic appeal. More importantly, you can bond with loved ones. Here are some of the numerous activities you can participate in if you own a fire pit.
S’Mores and a Fire Pit Go Hand in Hand
What gathering around the fire pit is complete without s’mores? Everyone, whether young or old, can indulge in the deliciousness of toasted marshmallows and melted chocolate. If you’re genuinely trying to impress your friends and family this fall, you can even display your ingredients on a buffet-style bar. Grab a table, a colorful table cloth, and bowls, and you can even include a chalkboard full of unique concoctions for your guests to try.
Halloween is on Sunday! If you celebrate it, what better way to do so than by sitting around the fire and telling ghost stories? It is a fun opportunity to bond with the kids while the older crowd may pleasantly become lost in nostalgia. After all, eating S’mores and telling ghost stories are staples of spending time around the fire.
An Outdoor Movie Night
If ghost telling isn’t your forte, you may enjoy an outdoor movie night with the kids. Most people appreciate that feeling of being at a drive-in movie theater. Many local stores sell projectors, or you can order them online, and the setup is more straightforward than you may think.
Try a Wine Tasting Night
Hardscape features are already stunning within themselves. When you choose a material such as natural stone, it can add elegance to your yard. You can add even more of an air of sophistication to your yard with a wine tasting night. In addition, you can look forward to putting the kids to bed as you enjoy some well-deserved adult time. Unlike a full-on dinner party, wine coupled with cheese, fresh fruit, and bread makes for convenient cleanup.
When you invest in a fire pit, it means that you’ll be adding more value to your home, extending the use of your outdoor living space, beautifying your backyard, and creating memories that will last a lifetime.
