Fall is the best time to have a bonfire. The air is crisp and cool, the warmth of the fire feels nice against your skin, and wrapping yourself in a flannel blanket and roasting marshmallows feels seasonally appropriate. If you want to celebrate the season in style with your family and friends, consider these tips for putting on a great fall bonfire party.
You don’t have to buy a blanket for every person, but having a blanket stand full of cozy choices for guests will make all the difference.

Nothing ruins the mood of a fun outdoor party quite like mosquito bites. Avoid the itch with insect repellent and citronella candles.
Marshmallows and s’mores are a tried-and-true staple of bonfires, as is roasting hot dogs. Mix it up a bit by making popcorn in tinfoil, or even just having snacking alternatives set up on an outdoor table.
Speaking of s’mores and snacks, prepare for the inevitable sticky fingers by having wipes on hand.
What separates a party from just a plain old get-together? Decorations! Don’t be afraid to go all-out with some tablecloths, paper lanterns, string lights, and anything else you can think of. Best part is, you can get a lot of party decor for cheap through DIY projects or from the dollar store.
