Bonfire Night Party Ideas

Bonfire Night Party Ideas

Bonfire night is one of our favourite nights of the year! The fizzing of fireworks, and magical displays of colours filling Britain’s skies, are enough to make us embrace the brisk winter weather.

If you’re a dab hand at entertaining, and feel inspired to throw a stylish gathering for your friends and family, read on to unveil some festive inspirations to get your bonfire garden party started.

Food & Drink…

Bring heart-warming comfort food to the table with a twist on a traditional British dessert. Caramel, and fresh dessert apples, make a gorgeous Toffee Apple Bread & Butter Pudding; a treat your guests will struggle to turn away.

Or why not try toasting skewered marshmallows on an open fire as a delicious activity that gets everyone involed. Try dipping them in melted dark chocolate for a luxurious touch.

Make the most of your Halloween leftovers and create your own Starbuck’s inspired Pumpkin Spiced Latte. Sprinkle your strongly brewed coffee with some additional pumpkin spice for a kick, and vanilla extract to sweeten.

Additionally, for special festive indulgence, brew Mulled Spiced Cider using a concoction of star anise, cinnamon sticks and cloves. Quick and easy to make, this alcoholic drink will keep your bodies warm, and your guests merry!

…And festive décor

To set the ideal autumnal atmosphere, dress your tables with red and orange coloured cloths, autumnal table decor, and drape delicate fairy lights around your trees.

For a unique table decoration, carefully glue fallen leaves collected from your garden to the inside of empty jars, and place battery-powered tealights inside. We also love how the sparklers above are displayed in an autumn-inspired basket, with a personal hand-written label for your guests to help themselves.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on bonfire night party themes and ideas! Share them with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram; or try ours and let us know how you get on!

Have a happy Bonfire Night!
