Regardless of the climate, people seem to love to gather around an outdoor fire. Its something that just seems to in our makeup as humans. Whether it is a summer bonfire or a nice warm campfire on a chilly fall or winter night, we love the warmth and smell and ambiance of an outdoor fire. Given that we live in a modern society, its not always safe or practice to build an old-fashioned campfire in your backyard or patio. That is where the relatively new invention of the firepit comes to the rescue. You have probably seen a fire pit or two, whether in a neighbors backyard or at you local superstore. Like many things in life, the price and quality of outdoor firepits varies greatly. You can easily find one for under one hundred dollars, but then again, you can also spend several thousand for a really high-end model.
It could be very romantic. Sitting in front of the fire on a cool evening with all of the stars in the sky shining back at you could be a small slice of paradise. Moments like that create memories that last forever. Smaller firepits are portable, so you can easily take it with you wherever you go. You can also buy a copper firepit in a much larger size. A 40 inch firepit would be much like a campfire, only safer. The whole family could sit around the fire and spend time together. You could even sing campfire songs. You new firepit will give you the feel of camping deep in the woods without ever having to leave your backyard. It will bring your family closer together. Slightly smaller sizes, such as 35 inch, are also available. Whatever size you decide upon, you will be able to enjoy your new copper firepit for years to come. Copper is a very long lasting metal so you wont have any problems with it, you wont have to worry about rust or corrosion like with some other metals. Copper is also very beautiful, it will be a welcome addition to your backyard. When your neighbors see how lovely your new firepit is and how much you are enjoying it, they just might see the benefits of owning one as well.
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.
There are other safety issues that you also need to consider when lighting a fire in a copper firepit. Never, ever leave a fire unattended, even for just a moment. Also make sure that any children that are with you keep a safe distance from the fire. Do not allow children to put anything into a burning fire, even if they claim that they know what they are doing. Dont allow children to stir the fire or to add wood or charcoal. Also keep a bucket of water handy in case you need to put the fire out quickly. With a few precautions, you can happily enjoy your new copper firepit for years to come. A little bit of common sense goes a long way. Remember that if something seems like a bad idea, it probably is. Fire can be dangerous, but it doesnt have to be. Use care and make sure that you dont get too close. Follow all directions that came with your firepit. Youll be glad that you did.
