Get your Outdoor Space ready for Firework Season with Cuckooland

Remember, remember, the 5th of November…

And if you’re hosting your own bonfire display this year, you’ll want to throw an event your loved ones will remember – for all the right reasons!

With Guy Fawkes night just around the corner, make sure your get-together goes off with a bang. Simply follow these five steps to create an oh-so welcoming and cosy space for bonfire night…

Step one - Heat up your garden

Brrr! Anyone noticed that chill in the air?

Autumn is well and truly here, and it’s only going to get colder. While you’ll wrap up with coats and scarves, the colder weather means it’s not always fun to sit outside for lengthy spells. But if you’re hosting a bonfire get-together, you won’t want to call time on the fun as soon as the last firework fizzles out.

So, banish those chattering teeth and freezing fingers, and heat up your garden with a freestanding electric lamp. The electric patio heater by Heatsail (below) generates powerful heat within a five-metre radius – so all your nearest and dearest will stay toasty warm as they admire your fireworks.

Or if you want to create your very own bonfire, then a fire bowl is the perfect way to stay warm. With the Cook King fire bowl (below), you can enjoy that satisfying crackle of a real wood fire and add heaps of heat to your garden. You can even toast some marshmallows for that authentic bonfire night experience…

Step two - Get cosy on soft seating

To host a super cosy bonfire evening, make sure you’re sitting comfortably. After putting in the effort to create your firework display, you deserve to sit back and relax as you watch the big show. And with cosy seating, your loved ones won’t want to get up and leave after the main event…

For soft outdoor seating, look no further than an Extreme Lounging bean bag (below). With weather-resistant material and a super comfy supportive shape, it’s the ideal choice for kicking back outside.

Already got your seating sorted? Then make sure you pop some cushions on your seats for that extra slice of comfort. Crafted with waterproof material, the boho-style cushion by Beanbag Bazaar (below) is ideal for withstanding the Great British weather.

Step three - Wrap up warm with a throw

So, the fire’s crackling, the fireworks are ready to go, and your loved ones are sitting comfortably. Before the main event kicks off, pass around some cosy throws to help everyone stay warm all night long.

With a throw, it’s easy to snuggle up and stay warm outdoors. And since Bloomingville throws are super stylish and versatile, they also look great in your living space once it’s time to head back indoors.

Step four - Cook up tasty bonfire treats

From sizzling burgers to toasted s’mores, bonfire night is all about enjoying some indulgent treats as you watch the display. If you’re hosting a firework display, make sure there’s absolutely zero grumbling tummies – and plenty of smacking lips!

If you fancy pulling out the stops this year, woodfired pizza is a real crowd-pleaser. With its authentic smoky flavours, it perfectly complements bonfire season.

You can even use any leftover wood chips to keep your bonfire alight, too. And not only that, but you can whip up a delicious pizza in no time. So you can spend less time cooking, and more time oohing and ahhing!

With the Wood and Charcoal Fired Portable Pizza Oven by Ooni (below), you can cook tasty pizzas in just 60 seconds. Plus, with its folding legs and compact design, you can set up your cooking station wherever you like – and easily pack it away once the show’s over.

Fancy toasting some tasty bonfire treats for the finale? Then a garden stove is perfect.

With crackling flames and ambient light, you instantly create a cosy focal point for your guests to gather around and toast some treats. So, skewer up those marshmallows or crumpets, and get cooking on a stylish stove.

Step five - Light up your garden right

Want your bonfire night to really go off with a bang? To complete your cosy garden set-up, you’ll need to light up your festivities just right.

Fairy lights are ideal for bonfire get-togethers. Simply drape some fairy lights around your garden and you instantly create a magical and ambient vibe. As they give off subtle and soft lighting, they beautifully illuminate your festivities – while allowing your bonfire to take centre stage.

You can really get creative and set off your fireworks to a soundtrack! Simply connect your phone with Bluetooth and line up your favourite tracks.
