What To Do For Bonfire Night (Great Ideas)

The time has come once again to celebrate one of our favourite nights of the year, Bonfire night! What could be better than getting yourself wrapped up all lovely and warm, making some hot chocolate and watching some dazzling fireworks in the winter sky? Not much, in our opinion! So what can you do this year to have an unforgettable bonfire night? Stick around, and we will give you some tips on how to have the best bonfire night imaginable.

First things first, you are going to need a place to hold your party. Please make sure that the place you light your bonfire or fireworks is a safe place, free from any hazards or risk of starting fires. The last thing we want to happen on one of the most enjoyable nights of the year is for anything to get damaged or anyone to get hurt. So when thinking about holding a bonfire night, please choose an open space where everyone can stand and enjoy the fireworks at a safe distance.

Next, we recommend thinking about what kind of fireworks you want to have at your party. Now, if you’re anything like us, you’re sure to be all giddy and excited about what to choose from our huge range of fireworks so you can make the best display ever. We will always recommend rockets, because nothing beats the excitement of watching one fly into the night sky and go bang. Personally, I think you want to get your rockets first; and for that we recommend the Sky Wizard as a great place to start


But, you can’t have a fireworks night with just rockets, so we also definitely recommend getting a fountain to really put smiles on faces at your bonfire night. We have an absolute mountain of fountains to choose from, and you really can’t go wrong with any of them – but if I had to choose just one of them, then I would go with the Spintacular, as it not only shoots off a beautiful fountain of sparks, but it spins as it does so – making a fantastic display.


Another thing we definitely recommend for the amazing photo opportunities of bonfire night, is to get a combination of both sparklers and glow sticks. The reason for this is because glow sticks are a safer alternative to sparklers if you have some really young ones, but also because you can take some absolutely dazzling photos if you decorate everyone with glow sticks to get everyone sparkling for fantastic photos all night! 

Of course, if you are having a lot of people round for your Bonfire night celebrations, then you absolutely need to cater for your party. There are plenty of classic party foods you can have at a Bonfire night – but the leading one should definitely be a barbecue. Now, you’re probably scratching your head at the thought of having a barbecue in the middle of November, but we think that it is the perfect food to keep everyone happy and warm during that cold winter night! Plus, you can cater for all dietary needs at a barbecue, as there are plenty of great vegetarian and vegan options available. Barbecues are also great for kids and keeping low on mess too. Hotdogs, burgers, kebabs, and more are all great options for catering and can cater for large groups too. Pair all this with snacks and salad and you are sure to keep everyone warm and full-up so they can enjoy the fireworks. 

These are some tips to help you have the best Bonfire night party imaginable, plus we have some blogs covering Halloween too, so if you want to have some advice for holding a spooky party – be sure to check those out too. Stay safe this Bonfire Night, and we hope you have the best time!
