Throw the BEST bonfire party!
Find out how to throw the BEST bonfire party!
Hosting a Bonfire Party can turn a summer evening into a memorable occasion with your friends, family, and guests.
No house to clean, minimal set-up and easy food prep. It’s simple! It all adds up to a relaxing evening. Just head outdoors, sit on a long and hang out near a blazing bonfire with these inspiring tips and ideas about how to make this a night a to remember.
This is the first rule you need to follow before building a fire. If you have a fire pit, use it! If you’re hosting your Bonfire Party in an offbeat setting (like the woods, a lake or beach), don’t forget to clear the area and DIY a fire bed or ring.
Don’t Forget about the #GlamFact
You don’t need to spend so much money on decorations but add the wow factor to your Bonfire Party by lighting the way for your guests with some easy-to-make tin can lanterns because candles and outdoor lighting can set the mood perfectly.
A great idea will be to place some mason jars with tea lights around the zone of your Bonfire Party. Just pop a small candle or led light in each mason jar before setting them outside.
The Best Bonfire Props
Bonfires are nice and toasty but set up the tone for your Bonfire Party by lighting up sweetly scented pine cones.
If you’re not outstretched on a beach blanket of if you’re not down with parking it on a stump rock, consider using some tripod stools. You can use a cozy blanket too (for sure) but make sure to offer them a snuggly blanket to cuddle on.
Keep things from blowing away with some decorative storage bins to place chips, popcorn, and desserts.
Warming Comfort Food
A great Bonfire Party isn’t complete without great food. What about some popcorn popped right over the fire? It will be a great idea to include different types of seasonings for everyone to personalize their popcorn.
Don’t forget to add to the cooler some bottled water, sparkling water, and even a few choice soda pops to make sure you have something on hand for everyone.
Roasted Hot dogs are also a great idea but think about not your typical Bonfire Party food, bring your José Olé Taquitos, Burritos or Chimichangas, all packed up in aluminum to keep them warm. Prepare some different types of salsas and dips.
We think our José Olé products will be the best option to serve during this memorable evening. Do you like the idea?
*Last but not least… Everyone will expect the s’mores to show up at your Bonfire Party, so pack some of them in a DIY s’mores kits that you could give them to spark a festive greeting!
