Buying a new copper firepit can be a great addition to any deck or backyard. Copper is a beautiful metal, and its long lasting and durable. Copper wont rust or corrode, unlike other metals, so your firepit will last for years and still look as good as the day you bought it. Another nice thing about copper is that it also conducts heat very well, so you will have a warm fire while burning less wood. Purchasing a firepit that is made of copper can be a very smart thing to do. Once you bring home your new copper firepit, youre going to want to think about accessories. One thing that is a very good idea is to buy a screen to place on top. This will help prevent hot ashes and burning embers from leaving the pit. Some firepits come with a screen, others may not so if yours doesnt have one you will want to think about purchasing one. You might also want to consider purchasing a lid to help put the fire out quicker at the end of the night.
The style is important too, as it should fit the style of the wedding. There are casual design pits as well as modern and more formal. If youre grilling, there are outdoor fireplaces that allow for cooking, and table style pits that give you space right beside the fire to keep drinks and utensils. Choose a design and size that works for your number of guests. Most pits allow access from any side, which is ideal in this type of large gathering. The number of guests will dictate the size or number you will need. Decide if you want one or two large pits, or several smaller pits. This will depend on the number of guests and the possibility of family members that may not get along. In the latter case, youll definitely want more pits in order to keep certain guests separate.
If youre less than confident about your fire making skills, check out gas firepits. Yes, they do exist, and look as good as their wood burning counterparts. Being able to flip a switch, and light a match will bring your date close to you in a matter of moments, and doesnt require maintenance to keep it going. As we noted above, being able to successfully ignite a pile of wood is impressive. Buying a pit to handle wood fires is a great way to go if this is your style. You can show off your manly side to your date. Not only is a wood fire exciting, you dont have to settle for a flame size limit. A wood fire can be brought to blazing heights. You and your date can sit close while it dies down to burning embers.
A backyard firepit has become very popular through the years, but many people dont realize that the ones dug in the ground also have a historical significance. They have served as the source of information about past populations, with the carbon remains determining when populations either existed or died out. In ancient times, turf ceremonies were held when removing the turf, and then replacing it after the fire went out. The firepit of today is very attractive, and is designed to keep a fire under control and to keep it from spreading. The majority of them are not those dug in the ground, but are free standing. People love the idea of having guests gathering around a firepit especially if the weather is on the cool side. There is nothing more relaxing than staring into a fire. They are also used on patios and decks and around pools. Some homeowners even decorate an area with furniture for their guests comfort with the firepit as a focal point. Toasting marshmallows over them is a popular activity.
