How to put on your best ever Bonfire Night party for children and big kids
Bonfire Night, Guy Fawkes’ Night or Fireworks Night – call it what you will, there’s one thing we can all agree on: 5th November is a night for lighting up your tills and sending your takings skyrocketing. Mixing up your normal menu and drinks list, along with some finishing touches, will set your Bonfire Night apart from the rest. And don’t forget to crank up the patio heaters to keep the chill away and warm up those outdoor spaces.
Bonfire Night Party food
For outdoor displays, think portable feasts. Barbecues and hog-roasts fit the pyrotechnic mood perfectly. Serve to all ages in wraps, buns and pittas. Easy-to-hold food means a spare hand for a drink or keeping hold of the little ones.
Cosy drinks by the fireside
Firstly, let’s pray for a crisp, clear night. Then, consider setting up an outside bar area, offering a range of drinks for adults and, importantly, kids. Keep the range simple. Children will love hot chocolate with (toasted) marshmallows or a warm apple juice. Hearty real ale for the adults will keep the chills at bay, but fizz and fireworks go together brilliantly too! Why not create a firework fizz-themed cocktail for the evening?
Create a special atmosphere
Don’t just rely on the glowing fire. Think of blending in additional lanterns and candles on tables. They’ll offer warmth, as well as provide more light as the night gets darker.
