Propane Fire Pits | Heat Up Any Outdoor Occasion

Propane fire pits may be one of the best additions to your outdoor space this year. They can help extend summer nights well into the fall while even warming up a cold winter night with some outdoor fun under the stars. Best of all, these fire pits can be easy to use and are also an attractive addition to just about any home. Are you ready to add them to your space?

Choosing the Right Fire Pit Makes the Difference

Before buying any type of natural gas or propane fire pit, it is important for you to know what product is best for your specific area and needs. Let’s take a look at a few examples of how these propane fire pits can warm up your outdoor occasion.

Small, Intimate Spaces and Get-Togethers

Do you have a beautiful balcony outside of your home, perhaps one where you can have a few people gather? Why not use a propane fire pit here. They can be purchased in a smaller size to fit a much smaller area. Contrary to what many people think, you do not need a lot of outdoor space for these fire pits (but you should invest in ensuring you know the rules of your community first). Add a balcony round fire pit to your outdoor space. They are small enough to allow you and a couple of friends to gather around them, but at the same time, they can be warm enough to keep the entire area toasty. This is a great option for an after-dinner drink when you want to make the home seem larger and more inviting. Or, welcome your guests outdoors to this type of space while the kids head to bed on a Saturday night.

Enjoy a Meal with a Few Friends

Some of the fire pit options available today give you an ample amount of room around the actual fire pit center. For example, we have a beautiful travertine table-like design with the fire pit in the center. Called dining fire pits, they work very well to create a functional space alongside the warm they produce. A round dining fire pit works well on a patio or deck, but it is even better when you place it out in the yard with a few chairs around it. That way, you have a table to set your snacks on even if you are tucked back far away from the home. You can even serve a meal on these tables, depending on the size and style you choose.

Get the Kids to Have Some Fun and Create Memories

There is nothing like the memories you will create with your family sitting around a round, weathered fire pit on a cool Friday evening. You may want to set up a tent nearby (right in your backyard) for the evening. You could tell ghost stories, or you could find yourself just talking about fun things you plan to do. The key is to have everyone relaxing together, enjoying each other. A fire pit can be any style and size for this, based on what your needs and goals are. You may want to choose a beautiful piece like a round reclaimed fire pit. This can add a lot of value to your backyard and be used throughout the year for many years. The key is to purchase a high-quality fire pit, one that matches other furniture in your space when possible.

Host a Game Night on Your Fire Pit

Whether you focus on the family-theme or a group of friends, another way to use a fire pit at your home is as a game night table. Choose a rectangle fire pit, one that has a lot more table space for you to use. You don’t need to overthink this, but you can choose from a wide range of styles to fit your needs, like the Roma rectangle fire pit. Use the table as a place to hold drinks and cards or other pieces for the table. Some are designed to provide ample space for a group of people to gather around them. This can be a fun way to relax, whether it is the middle of the day (and the fire is off) or an evening event.

Set Up a Paint and Sip Event

Do you have a group of friends that love wine? Do you want to have something a bit more interesting to do this weekend? You can choose a few of your friends, set up some easels, and enjoy a sip and paint party at your home. Choose a few different types of wine to serve. Provide the paints and the canvases for your group. Then, everyone can have some fun painting (you can even find tutorials online that you can show on a screen nearby). A paint and sip event is made a bit more luxurious when you have a beautiful fire pit in the center of the space. Go with a rectangular fire pit to keep the entire area warm. Make sure it is beautiful, like the Lava fire pit. This adds to the sensual experience you may be after.

Set Up a Taco Bar or Make-Your-Own Meal

If you want to serve food to your friends ahead of a night under the stars, choose something interactive and fun. A rectangle fire pit offers a lot of room to make this work for you. Choose a propane fire pit, and you may even be able to warm up some dishes while using it. Set up a space to allow guests to create kebobs with foods they want to add. Or, create a taco bar that allows them to assemble their meal based on what they want to eat. You can also choose from a range of other items. Sometimes, you can use skewers and allow guests to cook some of those veggies over the fire. Even if you serve food on another table, there’s something enjoyable about sitting around a fire eating.

Making Your Experience Special
