LIFESTYLE: A summer fire pit with Smores

A summer BBQ and fire pitA couple of weeks back we were invited to a birthday party of one of my friends - who it turns out I've known for about six and a half odd years which is a slightly scary thought!
We tend to see each other at her birthday each year as she almost always has a summer BBQ party at her house to celebrate.

Thankfully the sun held out and third times a charm for us and BBQs, we actually successfully had an outdoor BBQ!

Copious amounts of food and drink later, we cracked out Marie's new fire pit! As a USA lover, we had to have American inspired Smores over the fire pit, and they went down a treat with everyone.
I'm now literally yearning for a fire pit for our back garden to do our own Smores parties, especially as the evenings start to cool in early Autumn.



Here's some photos from the day and evening!

We are not completely obsessed with fire pits - although I have wanted one for a little while, this really cemented the idea - so I thought I'd include a little list of some I found. Watch out for updates on which we actually buy!!

This Tesco one looks pretty sturdy and at £62.99 a really affordable option for summer use!
A little more money from B&Q at £97, this one appears a bit more sturdy and the leaf design is cute.
For a statement fire pit, this pebble surround one is a sure attention seeker, and not too pricey either.
And for a mini fire pit, this one is under 50cm wide from Asda

Have you used a fire pit before? What's you favourite thing about it?

  1. I love summer BBQs. Roasted marshmallows are the best. I still need to try smores though (a).

  2. It's funny I was only thinking about how we loved our firepitt the other day! They are fantastic for when the family come round. I see you guys look like you are really enjoying yourself. We made smores on ours last year and they were scrumptious. Rachel X

      It's pretty much the main reason we bought the firepit! lol
      Plus we're hoping it will make us spend more time in the garden!
