A bonfire party. Let’s face it, there is nothing quite like sitting around a bonfire with a group of friends, drinking some wine or beer and toasting marshmallows!
- Whilst sitting around the bonfire, it is always nice to have something to munch on. These quick and easy cheese puffs will work perfectly for the occasion.
- Baked zucchini chips are fantastic to use as a snack attack with a drink in hand.
- ‘Happiness Is‘ wine labels will work a treat for this type of party. After all, everyone is happy at a bonfire party!
I recently posted about the Kit Kat cake that I made for my husband’s birthday. His birthday wasn’t a “special age”, birthday but that didn’t mean it couldn’t be celebrated. We decided to hold a bonfire party to celebrate his birthday and design some printable wine labels especially for the occasion.
So what did this party entail?
It was simple….BBQ sausages with bread and sauce, a fire pit cranked to the max with marshmallows for toasting and some lovely red and white wine to share with friends. The printable wine labels spruced up some otherwise dull looking clean skin bottles, and they worked a treat.
It’s pretty hard to resist a roaring fire….I’m not sure what it is, but having a fire pit at a party is a great conversation starter and offers a focal point for people. Of course, it does also add some competition between the guys as to who is going to be the chief fire protector….or prodder! Fire pits are inexpensive and can be purchased from most hardware stores.
They will also offer hours of fun outside of a party situation as there is nothing quite like sitting outside listening to the crackle of a fire and gazing at the stars. Are you following me on this one??
Of course, it is also hard to have a fire and not have marshmallows on hand to toast. The question is…..do you allow yourself the time to slowly toast your marshmallow or do you go for the plunge into the fire, blow out the flames and have the charcoal marshmallow? It’s a tough call!
I designed some printable wine labels for both the red and white wine on offer, which looked great on the table. Personalizing your wine bottles is a great idea to add some flare to your party and it is nice to have something a little bit different.
I designed two labels for this occasion. A “Happy Birthday” label and an “Age Defying” label for both red and white wine.

Fairy Lights are always great for outdoor evening parties as they create enough light that people can still see, but provide a lovely ambiance. We finished off with some music from Ministry of Sound and we were good to go….it was a fantastic chilled yet enjoyable evening with friends.
Are you a fan of a bonfire party? If you are stuck for a party theme, this one will be a winner every time!
