Outdoor parties are a different ballgame. Hang a sign on the front door and unlock a side gate. The only part of your home that needs cleaning is the path from the back door to the nearest bathroom.
In my last post, I laid down some serious Carpe Diem on old, fleeting Autumn. So I took my own advice and threw an impromptu backyard campfire!
What you’ll need:
– A box of Hershey bars
– Graham crackers
– A bag of marshmallows
– tree sticks (thin, straight and scrubbed down under a yard hose)
– hot dogs, buns & condiments
– hot cocoa (with Kaluha or whiskey to spike it with!)
– firewood and a fire pit
– lawn chairs and blankets
Set the scene! Circle your fire pit with lawn chairs and drape cozy blankets across each one. Have all the sticks ready to go in a metal pail. Load up a nearby table with an ample “Fixin’s Bar” for the roasted weiners, and plenty of liquor to spike the cocoa. How to make hot cocoa outdoors? Fill up a thermos or two with hot water and keep some cream on ice. The marshmallows for the s’mores make a perfect topping.
