We’re not ones to rush the seasons, but we do have to face facts: August is almost all gone, y’all. Though that makes us prematurely nostalgic for beach days and margaritas, let’s not forget that fall often gets a bad reputation. Sure, it’s great for snuggling and football games and Halloween, but even in the frosty Northeast, temperatures stay well into the seventies through September. (Does anyone else remember sweating through their first-day-of-school corduroys back in the day? Our mothers refused to believe how warm fall can be, too.) So fear not, outdoor lovers, there is no need to pack away the lawn furntiure and cornhole just yet. Fall is a great time to host an adults-only campfire. No children, mosquitos or Kumbaya singing allowed- only some snacks, drinks, and good company around a crackling fire. With help from our friends at Energizer, we’re rounding up the must-haves for a successful and, we admit it, snuggly, early fall campfire.
Fire Sense Copper Rail Fire Pit Clearly no campfire is complete without, you know, actual fire. Skip the burned lawn look; you can get pretty decent fire pits at any big-box retailer, but this painted steel one from Sears features a copper ring detail which will look so lovely all aglow.
Energizer Portable Lights Not even considering how cute that little lantern is, Energizer’s new line of portable lights are so handy, especially when partying in the backyard after dark. Use the Folding Lantern to light a pathway or direct guests to the cooler. The Pop-Up Lantern and Directional Light are great to to do quick checks on the fire or to glance at that cocktail recipe. We think these clever little lights will be put to good use for trick-or-treating and ghost story sessions later in the fall, too.
Smith & Hawken Caged Lantern String Light Energizer has your real-life, usable lighting needs covered, so let this string of old-timey lantern lights from Target add to the ambiance of the evening. Any backyard gathering will instantly feel cozier and more festive when these lovely lights are lit.
Williams-Sonoma Pomogranate-Blueberry Cocktail Mixer OK, I’ll have just one. A cocktail turns a few friends sitting around a fire into an actual party, and Williams-Sonoma does the hard work for you by pairing pomogranate and blueberry juices with pure cane sugar in their easy-as-pie cocktail mixer. Add almost any liquor and it will taste amazing.
Big Sur Cabin Spray Maybe your backyard is basically a patio, a stoop, or just a slab of concrete. No worries, you can get that camping-out-under-the-stars vibe going with Juniper Ridge’s Big Sur Cabin Spray. The fragrance is an all-natural combination of plants, bark, and many other elements of the woods. Breathe in and pretend you are high up in the mountains.
Pendleton Woolen Diamond Medallion Throw No matter how warm the fall days get, the evenings have a distinct coolness to them. Pendleton’s wool blankets are an American stalwart that will keep you toasty warm all night long. We love the new, colorful diamond medallion print.
Recchiuti S’Mores Kit Hands off, kids! This kit is for grown-up palates only. Handmade vanilla bean marshmallows, graham cookies and a bittersweet chocolate bar make this sweet collection a hot commodity by the campfire.15 Aug, 2013 in Home
