Whether your outdoors is besieged by the chilly breeze or covered with a light coating of snow, there’s always a way to still spend sometime outdoors. Let your fire pit help you reclaim your much-cherished outdoor spot with its cozy warmth this holiday season. In this blog, we give you ways on how to spread the holiday spirit over your fire pit.
Pile some logs and Christmas lights.
While you won’t be spending each night of the holiday season right around your fire pit, keep it burning alive with the Christmas spirit by lighting it up with some festive lights.
Ready your cups, cocoa, marshmallows, and more!
Nothing fits sitting beside a fire pit than sipping a hot mug of cocoa and grilling some marshmallows. While the fire pit is emitting enough warmth, let that cup warm you up from the inside.
Make it smell more like Christmas!
What smells do you frequently associate with the holiday cinnamon? Is it cinnamon, pine, peppermint, vanilla, or cloves? Charge the atmosphere with holiday scents by simmering a pot of cinnamon and water over your fire pit. If you have a wood-burning fire pit, you can try adding a cinnamon-scented pinecone to your pile. If you’re wary of burning anything, then you can simply spray your pillows, blankets or seats with your chosen holiday scents or essential oils.
Update your outdoor rugs, pillows, and throw blankets for the holidays.
If you have the classic holiday colors red and green, consider updating your outdoor comfort fabrics. Or at least coordinate the colors to match your outdoor décor.
Decorate each seat for the holidays.
A seat that looks like a sled with pillows that’s dressed as gifts? How about a chair that can fit Santa and you? While this holiday season is a bit different from the past celebrations, make sure there’s a comfortable seat for each member of the family round your fire pit. Exchange stories, memories, and more while sharing in the warmth equally spread round your fire pit.
