The Lekto Guide to Celebrating Bonfire Night at Home

If you don’t fancy getting caught up in the crowds this year, there are plenty of fantastic ways to celebrate bonfire night at home.

Make this year’s celebrations the best ones yet with our top 6 things to do on bonfire night at home. The best part? You don’t even have to leave your back garden!

Build A Bonfire In The Garden...

No bonfire night is complete without a fire. Create the best fire using our Kiln Dried Firewood or Hardwood Heat Logs that are ideal for use in fire pits, open fires and chimineas.

Take a look at our lucrative Value Bundles. They often contain a great mix of hardwood heat logs, kiln dried birch logs and firelighters (a.k.a everything you need to create the perfect fire in one box!).  

… Or Light A Swedish Torch Log

 Alternatively, enjoy the glow of a Swedish Torch Log that provides a fuss-free way of creating a cosy garden fire that’s perfect for gathering around and cooking on.

All our wood fuels are sustainably sourced and burn cleanly, meaning you can be sure that your bonfire night at home will be kind to the environment. 

 Light The Fireplace Indoors

If you don’t have the garden space to build a fire, or the weather conditions are bad, you can still enjoy a cosy fire indoors. 

With a long burn time and little maintenance required, our Sawdust Briquettes are perfect for keeping the fire going this bonfire night. 

They’re easy to light, providing a bright and long burn to keep you cosy with minimal effort required. Our Night Briquettes also burn for as long as 8 hours. 

Make S’mores

S’mores are the ultimate campfire snack, making them the perfect addition to bonfire night at home. All you need are three simple ingredients: chocolate, biscuits and marshmallows. 

Toast the marshmallows on the fire, then sandwich them between two biscuits with a couple of chunks of chocolate. 

The chocolate melts into the marshmallow creating a gooey, delicious treat. 

Host A Small Fireworks Display 

If you have a safe setup to do so, you could host your own fireworks display in the garden.

Make sure to choose fireworks that are suitable for your garden, set them up safely, keep spectators at a safe distance and keep an eye on the weather conditions, in particular wind and rain.

You should also make sure to store and dispose of them safely as set out on the instructions. Setting off fireworks in the garden can be great fun, however you should always make safety a top priority if you choose to do so. 

Do Apple Bobbing

There are lots of easy games that you can set up for bonfire night at home, however one of our all time favourites has to be apple bobbing.

Apple bobbing is a classic game for celebrating bonfire night at home and one that requires very minimal effort to set up in the garden. 

All you need is a bucket full of water and a load of apples!

Make Toffee / Chocolate Apples

Toffee apples are always best enjoyed on an autumnal evening, and they make the perfect snack to enjoy when celebrating bonfire night at home.

As a simpler alternative, you can also make chocolate apples. All you need to do is put an apple on a lolly stick, melt some chocolate and roll the apple in it. 

Both chocolate and toffee apples taste great, or you could always enjoy a mix of both!
