S’mores martini… mmmmmm. When we do bonfires, we usually have stuff for s’mores and hotdogs. There’s usually hard cider involved. Lots of sparklers, firecrackers, and glow sticks/necklaces/etc. to entertain the kids. And music, because tipsy dancing around the fire always seems like a good idea at some point in time. Sometimes the music is from the IPod, but many of my favorite memories involve friends with their acoustic guitars and or bongos having jam sessions. Good times. Lots of blankets and makeshift benches and camp chairs for seating options, of course.

Gah! Just typing this out makes me excited for our upcoming bonfire. Good times!

That sounds like so much fun! S’mores are definitely a good idea, and I love the sparklers as well. Are you doing any food? You could probably have a BBQ, or do something picnic style (sandwiches and fresh-made kettle chips) for fairly cheap, depending on how many people you’re having. Are you having a bar? Beer and wine in big tubs with ice would be cool.
