Bonfire night party ideas

Bonfire Night, also known as Guy Fawkes Night, is a fantastic time to gather with friends and family, enjoy some delicious food, play fun games, and, of course, watch a mesmerizing bonfire. It’s a tradition that dates back centuries, and it’s a time-honored way to celebrate the failed Gunpowder Plot of 1605. In this guide, we’ll provide you with a plethora of Bonfire Night party ideas, from classic games and mouthwatering food to using the Fiesta Garden Stove as a safe outdoor log burner to keep your guests warm.

 

Classic Bonfire Night Games

1. Sparkler Fun:

No Bonfire Night celebration is complete without sparklers. Give everyone a sparkler to light, and watch the night come alive with dazzling lights and sparkles. You can even create shapes or write your name in the air with them.

2. Bobbing for Apples:

A traditional game, bobbing for apples is a great way to add some competitive fun to your party. Fill a large tub with water and float apples in it. Players have to try and grab apples using only their teeth. The catch? No hands allowed!

3. Firework Watching Contest:

Set up an area where everyone can watch the fireworks. Provide blankets and hot drinks to keep everyone warm, and have a contest to see who can spot the most different types of fireworks in the display.

4. Bonfire Night Quiz:

Create a fun Bonfire Night-themed quiz with questions about the history and traditions of the event. You can also incorporate questions related to fire safety to make it educational and entertaining.

Delicious Bonfire Night Food

1. Traditional Parkin:

Start with a classic – Parkin! This ginger and treacle cake is a beloved Bonfire Night treat. It’s sticky, sweet, and perfect for warming your guests’ hearts and taste buds.

2. Sausages and Hot Dogs:

Bonfire Night calls for hearty and warm food, and what’s better than sausages and hot dogs? You can set up a DIY station with various toppings like caramelized onions, sauerkraut, and an array of mustards.

3. Jacket Potatoes:

For a more substantial option, jacket potatoes are a hit. Serve them with a range of toppings, including cheese, beans, coleslaw, and sour cream.

4. Toffee Apples:

No Bonfire Night is complete without toffee apples. The combination of sweet, crisp apples with a glossy toffee coating is a delightful treat that’s sure to put a smile on everyone’s face.

5. Warm Drinks:

Keep your guests cozy with a selection of warm drinks. Hot chocolate, mulled wine, and spiced cider are all excellent choices. Consider setting up a DIY drink station with various toppings and garnishes.

Staying Warm with the Fiesta Garden Stove

Bonfire Night is celebrated in early November, and the weather can be quite chilly. To ensure your guests stay warm and comfortable, consider using the Fiesta Garden Stove as a safe outdoor log burner.

Introducing the Fiesta Garden Stove

The Fiesta Garden Stove is a versatile and stylish outdoor heating solution. It’s perfect for adding warmth to your Bonfire Night celebration while enhancing the overall atmosphere. Here’s how to use it effectively:

1. Safety First:

Before lighting the Fiesta Garden Stove, ensure it’s placed on a stable and non-flammable surface. Keep it away from any structures or overhanging trees, and have a fire extinguisher or bucket of water nearby just in case.

2. Wood Selection:

Choose dry, well-seasoned firewood for your stove. Wet or green wood can create excessive smoke and may be difficult to ignite. Properly seasoned wood burns efficiently and produces less smoke.

3. Lighting the Stove:

Use firelighters or kindling to start the fire. Once it’s burning steadily, add larger pieces of wood to maintain a steady flame. The Fiesta Garden Stove is designed for easy ignition and management.

4. Provide Seating Arrangements:

Arrange seating around the Fiesta Garden Stove so that your guests can enjoy the warmth while socializing. Comfy cushions, blankets, and outdoor chairs can create a cozy and inviting atmosphere.

5. Bonfire Ambiance:

The Fiesta Garden Stove not only provides warmth but also creates a captivating ambiance. The dancing flames and flickering light add to the enchantment of your Bonfire Night celebration.

6. Roasting Marshmallows:

Take advantage of the Fiesta Garden Stove’s radiant heat by setting up a marshmallow roasting station. Provide skewers and an assortment of marshmallows and chocolates for making delicious s’mores.

7. Safety Tips:

It’s crucial to prioritize safety when using the Fiesta Garden Stove. Ensure children and pets are supervised, and remind your guests to keep a safe distance from the stove. Be prepared with a fire blanket or sand in case of emergencies.

    The Topio Outdoor Wood Burner

    £1,150.00

    The Topio outdoor Log burner has a wide, high-definition glass window, so its roaring flame can be viewed from multiple angles. Equipped with a wide door on the front of the stove to allow the flame to be accessed simply along with easy cleaning once the stove is cool. Designed for outdoor use in areas where a short flue is required. the Topio is often installed under a gazebo or pavilion.

    Boasting an output of 33KW the Topio can heat a patio area of 6m x 6m to a comfortable temperature ensuring that you can enjoy the outdoors no matter what the temperature.

    The standard dimension of the Topio is 1000mm wide x 400mm deep x 500mm Tall. By adding a log stand under the stove the height is increased to 700mm

    Burning wood is carbon neutral as when a tree grows it takes more carbon out of the atmosphere than it put back in when burned. This is the main reason why many are switching from traditional gas patio heaters that burn a lot of gas and don’t offer the output or the stunning view of a roaring fire.

    A hugely powerful and eco-friendly outdoor wood burner, the Topio has been created to offer even greater heat output than the Fiesta with a pleasing landscape format offering a spectacular view of the fire within!

    £799.99

    DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION
    Born and Bred in the Great Britain, this British-designed wood-burning stove is Eco Design ready ensuring the highest standards of efficiency and cleanliness. The slender cast iron door frame and large window provide a stunning view of the fire, and the powerful airwash system works to continuously clear any combustion deposits.

    FEATURES
    ECO DESIGN READY.

    In 2022 a new European wide programme to reduce harmful emissions and improve air quality comes into force, it is referred to as EcoDesign. Vesta Stoves are fully committed to this clean air strategy, and as such have chosen only to design new models which exceed the EcoDesign criteria.
    CONSTRUCTION
    Key features include 5mm and 8mm steel seam welded stove body construction and cast iron door. The firebox is lined with 30mm vermiculite panels. Polished stainless steel handle with black as an option and air control.
    VARIABLE AIR FLOW SYSTEM.
    The single stainless steel air slider allows you to easily control the combustion of your stove.
    TERTIARY AIR
    The powerful tertiary system is central to the stoves efficiency and cleanliness. Pre-heated air is drawn into the fire chamber and injected into the path of the gases produced during primary combustion; this re-ignites the gases resulting in a significantly cleaner and more efficient fire.

    EASY INSTALLATION
    All Vesta stoves are equipped with an installer friendly 125mm outlet allowing you to flue the stove from the top or rear. Discreet levelling screws hidden in the legs ensure that the stove can be secure no matter how uneven the hearth surface is. The stove is suitable for installation on a 12mm decorative hearth.

    LOG BOX OPTION
    The optional log box provides handy storage for fuel for imminent use, the legs of the stove recess into the log box giving it neat finish. There are several log box and bench options available.
