Fire pits are the perfect focal point for any outdoor living space. Paired with log bundles, matches, roasting sticks, or gourmet marshmallows, a fire pit also makes a thoughtful housewarming gift. Here are a few tips for creating a cozy fireside gathering place.
If you choose a wood burning fire pit, bowl or chiminea, make sure to place it 10 feet away from your home or any other structure. Complement your backyard or patio furniture with a log base, cast iron, or copper fire pit and a matching log holder.
Before your first fireside get-together, stock up on s'more sticks and a fire starter kit. Crowds will always gather around the fire for s'mores and good conversation. To keep your summer parties going at night, or to bring your winter gatherings outside, provide some cozy throws and blankets so your guests can bundle up.
