  • Make it a Family Night by the Fire!
    How did the summer go by so fast? It’s a common question this time of year, and the answer is always the same – not sure, but it’s already fall!

    Yes, fall is officially here and Mother Nature is ushering in cooler weather, like it or not. But those first chilly fall nights offer something warm summer nights don’t – the coziness that only a fire can offer.

    Here are some ideas for making the most of crisp fall nights, with a little fun sprinkled in. If you have a family or even if you don’t, make plans for some togetherness around the fire!

    Make it a Game Night
    While the wind is blowing cold outside, gather everyone around the fire for some competitive fun! Box and board games like Yahtzee and Monopoly are classics because they involve the thrill of risk, while challenging the mind. For a more physical experience, get out the Wii and put everyone’s hand-eye coordination to the test!



    Make it an Apple Pie
    Apple orchards are in full swing. Kids love visiting them, and adults do too. Make a day of picking apples and frolicking at your local orchard, then get out the aprons and make fresh apple pies together in your kitchen. As evening sets in, light a fire and enjoy plates of warm apple pie topped with vanilla ice cream!



    Make it a Night to Remember
    Digital photography has made it so easy to capture photos and videos. Light a fire and gather everyone together for a slide show of the photos and videos you’ve taken over the years. It’s easy to do – just copy your digital photos into a folder or series of folders and run a slide show on your computer or through your TV. Memories will come rushing back as you reminisce and laugh together!



    From all of us at Fireplaces.com, enjoy the fall season!
