The air is getting crisp, and the leaves are turning brilliant shades of red, orange, and yellow. Pumpkins are popping up on all your neighbor’s porches, along with shared zucchini, apples, and peaches that everyone suddenly has in excess. It just may be the best time of the year! Thankfully, cooler temperatures and less daylight don’t have to mean the end of evening parties. All you need for the perfect fall gatherings are gas outdoor firepits.
How to Get the Most Out of Your Backyard Gas Fire Pit
Roasting s’mores and hot dogs may be the most obvious ways to enjoy gas outdoor firepits, but the fun doesn’t stop there. Check out the fun ideas below to make every fall evening memorable this year!
Excuse Me, Can I Have S’more?
Melted (or slightly burned) and gooey mallows smashed between chocolate and graham crackers . . . yes, please! Get creative and try variations of your favorite campfire treat. Or see what else tastes better when it’s melted, like Starburst candies.
‘S Wonderful . . . ‘S Marvelous . . .
Whether you prefer Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, or Doris Day, a backyard movie night should be at the top of your fall to-do list, especially now that you have an outdoor gas fire pit to gather around. Don’t worry if you are unfamiliar with the song and movie references above. There are plenty of options that are more recent or relevant to your viewing audience.
All you need is a projector (some of which can be synced with smartphones) and a large blank space. Hang a sheet, use an outdoor wall, or get a retractable or inflatable screen.
Ss . . . Sss . . . Ss . . . Scary Stories
No need to be afraid of the dark—that guy with the hook just sneaks up on unsuspecting people in parked cars and—well, just watch, and you’ll find out.
Choose your favorite scary stories and introduce them to your kids. You know what they can handle, which may make it a much better experience than say, summer camp, where the stories may get a little more out of hand.
I Say a Boom Chicka Boom
Grab a rig of bamboo and get ready for some silly songs like Sippin’ Cider or the Princess Pat. Serenade the neighbors or invite them to join you. Just make sure you quiet down before it gets too late.
Sip and Snack
Have a wine night, a barbecue, or serve snacks and sit around the fire catching up with your friends and family. Sometimes the best evenings are the ones with the fewest plans, especially when gathered around a toasty outdoor gas fire pit with the people you love.
