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.
