There’s nothing better than sitting in front of a nice warm fire on a cool fall night. If you don’t already have one, start shopping around for a fire pit, and the right location to place it in your backyard. Fire pits are excellent for keeping warm on cool nights and perfectly toasting marshmallows for your favorite s’mores recipe. While some prefer to have their fire pit built in to their landscaping, there are benefits to purchasing an above ground fire pit. Namely, you can move it around your property depending upon the size of your group, or the occasion.
Invest in Great Outdoor Seating
Now that you have your fire pit it’s a great idea to invest in some high quality outdoor seating. You’ll want a couple of different styles of chairs, something low and relaxing for sitting by the fire with your family, and some outdoor dining seating for sharing a glass of wine and a cheeseboard with your friends. Either way, make sure you test out the chairs to ensure the most comfort and find products that will be resilient to Florida weather.
Invite your Friends Over
A roaring fire, some comfortable seating and snacks - it sounds like it’s time to party! The best part about having a luxury custom home is the opportunity to share it with the people you love. Fall is a great time to get back into the habit of gathering with your friends and enjoying the not-so-hot weather. Invite a group of friends and family over to enjoy the beautiful landscaping surrounding your new home.
If you enjoy a party with a theme consider choosing an item and inviting your friends to bring something with them. For instance, if you love a nice glass of red wine, invite each of your friends to bring their favorite bottle over for the rest of your guests to try. It will add a fun twist to your party. If you don’t care for wine, you can switch it out for cheese, chocolate, or cocoa! The possibilities are endless and fun as long as you’re able to enjoy the great outdoors with your friends and family.
One of the great benefits of living in Florida is the ability to really enjoy being outdoors during this time of year. As people up north are preparing for snow, we’re still gearing up for cooler days. So take advantage of our upcoming cool, fall weather by planning some get-togethers for your friends and family at your new luxury custom home.
