There's nothing more relaxing or enjoyable than a fire. From the captivating sights of the dancing embers to the smells of the smoldering wood, it's a sensory experience that conjures up memories of times past and helps create new ones. So why limit roaring fires to camping and vacations? Families and friends can enjoy a beautiful backyard fire any night of the week, whether you own your own home or rent in a building. Here are a few tips for building a fire in an outdoor fire pit that will meet safety guidelines anywhere.
Hosting an outdoor party can be easier and less expensive than you may imagine. Have friends and family coming over to grill and realize you don't have enough seating or serving space? Start by relocating some indoor furniture. Your kitchen table can be moved outdoors and set it up as a second beverage station. Having another spot, separate from the food buffet, prevents a traffic jam and allows guests to mix and mingle while they get drinks. Come sundown have lighting ready so you guests can see to serve themselves. Not only does a tabletop firebowl provide light and warmth as temperatures drop, but they are also refillable so they're better for the environment.
