We’re all getting used to hosting more in our homes, with many local and national restrictions limiting the activities we can do outside.
Bonfire night is nearly here; normally this would be spent outside in the crowds at a local gathering, watching fireworks and lighting sparklers wrapped up warm in our cosy knits. This year however, it will be spent differently – with little to no group events taking place, why not host those in your bubble and celebrate in the comfort of your own home?
You can dust the cobwebs off your garden furniture, bring out some chunky throws and set the scene with candles, fire pits, outdoor lights and – if it’s safe to do so – some fireworks in your garden. If not, you can have plenty of fun spelling your name and creating shapes in the air with sparklers!
You don’t have to pull out all the stops to create a nice, cosy atmosphere. You can use candles and lanterns to light up the space around your seating area and if you don’t have a firepit, you can create a child-friendly version with fairy lights instead of flames. Have plenty of throws and cushions on hand too, great for warming up as it gets cooler.
