5 Fire Pit Accessories You Need For Optimal Outdoor Entertaining
You finally got your dream gas-powered fire pit and your outdoor living area is complete. You can’t wait to start entertaining guests, and you’re already looking at fun accessories, like s’more skewers, to make your fire pit sessions even sweeter.
Gas-powered fire pits are a convenient alternative to classic wood logs because they require very little work to get started and are easy to clean.
Don’t get too relaxed though, because there are plenty of essential fire pit accessories you should consider purchasing to keep your guests cozy and happy.
In this post, I’ve listed 5 of the must-have fire pit products.
1. Fire pit cover
The weather can be harsh on our beloved fire pits, especially the hot sun, humid temperatures, or frequent rainfall. Keep your fire pit well-protected with a weatherproof cover. This will also keep dust and debris from infiltrating the mechanical parts of a gas pit.
2. Stone tabletop
There are numerous gas-powered fire pits that come in functional styles that double as a table, but if your fire pit lacks this type of design, then you can invest in a stone tabletop. It slides right on top of your pit so when the flames aren’t ignited, you can use it to serve drinks and snacks.
3. Safety gear
It’s always better to be safe than sorry, and this logic definitely applies to fire pits. Make sure you’re prepared with a fire extinguisher and a metal bucket of water as a backup. You should also assemble a First Aid kit that includes burn cream and sterile nitrile gloves.
4. The fun stuff
Who says fire pits are only for sitting and staring at pretty flames? When the kids are around, you can bust out these fire fun accessories:
- Roasting sticks for marshmallows and hot dogs
- Packets of fire pit flame color
- Tiki torches
- Campfire popcorn popper
- Outdoor movie screen
- Giant Jenga
5. Fire Glass
This is purely decorative, but what’s not to love? Fire Glass is a unique way to cover up the mechanical parts of your fire pit and it adds a lovely, shimmery touch. These specially tempered glass bits come in all shapes and colors, so you can coordinate as you see fit.
