If you’re looking to plan a bonfire, invest in a high-quality fire pit that will last for ages. A high-quality fire pit from Solo Stove will definitely elevate your backyard party. Solo Stove’s smokeless fire pits will keep you toasty while you roast your marshmallows and spend time around the campfire with your favorite people. Check out the company’s firewood and fuel options too. 

Next, don’t forget camping chairs for your guests. As the night gets colder, make sure you have plenty of blankets on hand. Try one of Rumpl’s beautiful quilted blankets to keep you and your guests warm and cozy all evening.

Snacks and Treats

To host a bonfire, the only thing you really need is a fire—but it wouldn’t be a real party without some delicious snacks. Here at Outdoors.com, we love our s’mores. If you do too, make sure you have a kit ready for your bonfire. And since we’re in the season of Halloween, try adding different chocolate candies to your s’mores for a delicious twist of a classic treat. If you’re looking for a savory classic that you can cook over the fire, pick up some Jiffy Pop. Other delicious options include campfire nachos, skillet brownies, or even a pizza over the fire.  

Safety

When you’re having a bonfire, take steps to make sure you and your guests are safe, especially during this time of year when there are dead, dry leaves on the ground.
For instance, double check that you have a working fire extinguisher nearby, just in case. You can also keep some burn gel handy in the off chance someone gets a little overly eager when roasting their marshmallow.
