Whether you are caught up in the corporate rat race, juggling between working shifts while trying to get your degree or a full time stay at home parent; It’s safe to say that date nights are few and far apart. Therefore, we are dedicating this blog to help you and your loved one make the most of the time you spend together at home.

Our customizable fire pits are not only functional when you’re hosting a party in your backyard, but it’s also the perfect add on to light up your ‘stay at home date night’.

Here is how you can turn your outdoor space into a romantic wonderland with a couple of quick and easy steps, fire pit and smores included, of course!

1. Set the scene:

Even though you are staying at home, you don’t want it to feel like you’re actually at home. Spruce up your space a little. Consider rearranging your outdoor furniture and don’t forget to throw some scatter cushions in the mix to make your space more inviting.

Owning a free-standing fire pit would be to your advantage at this point. You can move your fire pit to the perfect spot in your garden. For extra privacy, try moving your fire pit out of sight of any possible lurking eyes – everyone has that one curious neighbour, and there’s no use denying it. It’s not the end of the world if your fire pit isn’t portable, all you need to do is use the space that you have to your advantage; Drape some fairy lights, light some candles and enjoy the sizzling flames of your beautiful fire pit.

Some of our fire pits are adjustable and can be turned into tables in a flash. If you have one of these, try having a candle lit dinner as the last bit of sunlight licks into twilight. After dinner you can turn your table back into a fire pit, light the fire and cuddle up next to the crackling flames.

2. Don’t forget the snacks

Snacks! Nothing screams romance like feeding each other yummy snacks underneath the fiery light of a starry night. There is a range of snacks to choose from. The obvious choice for those of you that are health conscious would be juicy strawberries with whipped cream. If you want to be more adventurous, try setting up your own cheese platter with some wine on the side. You can even add a little playfulness to your evening by setting up a smore bar for the two of you.

Wash your snacks down with two cups of hot chocolate while absorbing the last bit of heat from the remaining embers in your fire pit.

3. Add an element of surprise

Let your creative juices flow and surprise your loved one with something that resonates with their personality. Buy them a bottle of bubbly, just because, or put a hand-written note on their seat. You can even hide some chocolates in the yard and send them on a little treasure hunt! The extra element of surprise is exactly what your loved one needs to feel warm and fuzzy on the inside.

Adding something unexpected to your date night will leave your loved one feeling more appreciated too.

There you have it; sizzling up date night has never been so easy! We hope that this blog inspires you to spend some well-deserved alone time with your special someone.
