Throwing the Perfect Summer Bonfire Party

summer bonfire party

 

There’s nothing in the world quite like a bonfire on a crisp summer evening where friends and family can share scary stories and indulge in roasted marshmallows. Check out these tips to help you host an awesome summer bonfire party.

 

Provide Bug Spray
Keep bugs at bay for you and your guests. A lot of guests may forget to bring their own insect repellant, so it’s a good idea to set out some communal bug spray and light a few citronella candles.

Cozy Blankets and Paper Lanterns
Provide blankets so your guests can ward off the evening chill, and set up strings of simple paper lanterns to provide some mood lighting. Having lights will also help people find their way around after it gets dark.

Hot Dogs, S’mores, and Popcorn, Oh My!
Marshmallows aren’t the only thing you can cook over a fire, even though s’mores are a fan-favorite that should definitely be included. You can also cook hot dogs over the open flame or even pop popcorn wrapped in tinfoil.

Refreshing (Kid-Friendly) Beverages
It’s important to stay hydrated! Coolers full of water bottles and pitchers of homemade lemonade are a welcome addition to any outdoor activity, especially in Texas.

We at Wiesner of Huntsville wish you and your family a happy, safe summer.

Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Cadillac

Cleaning a Cadillac isn’t like cleaning any old car. It deserves — rather, it requires — a whole lot of TLC. Take the time to make your Cadillac shine this season with these easy spring cleaning tips.

Use Detergent on the Pedals
All too often, the pedals are overlooked when detailing a car’s interior. Take a little soap and water to the pedals and get the grit out of the grooves — you’ll be surprised by the difference this makes!

Wash the Head and Taillights
Nothing makes a car look dingier than smoggy lights, and we here at Wiesner of Huntsville believe there should be no such thing as a dingy-looking Cadillac. Clean your lights with warm water and soap before your next joyride. We’re including this in our spring cleaning tips, but you should actually clean your lights at least every two months to make sure you’re as visible as possible while on the road.

Get Your Junk Out of the Trunk
Winter has a way of turning human beings into packrats, even here in warm Texas. Don’t burden your beloved Cadillac any longer — get all those odds-and-ends out of the trunk and back where they belong. Now that your load is lightened, this might even save you money at the pump in the long run.

Give these spring cleaning tips a try, and when the heads start turning as you drive down the street on a sunny afternoon, you’ll thank us!
