As time marches on and the season progresses from September into October, we can now start to look forward to darker evenings, and all the fun that comes with Halloween and Bonfire Night. These both make perfect excuses for get-togethers, but why would you even need an excuse when you have a luxury outdoor oven from Aemyrie? Get together with friends and loved ones and throw an outdoor barbecue just because it’s autumn! It’s not as difficult as you think, and will turn out fabulously if you follow some simple advice.
As the nights get darker, you may want to keep gatherings more intimate and avoid having to light the whole garden or a huge crowd of people. Now is the perfect time to gather under twinkling fairy lights in your outdoor kitchen, or around the embers of a glowing fire pit in the garden. You might even want to decorate tables with a few candles or old lanterns to provide extra light and contribute to the overall aesthetic.
Keep everyone warm by providing plenty of blankets and hot drinks and you can use a luxury outdoor oven to heat mulled wine or other warm cocktails. If you are planning on building your own outdoor kitchen and entertainment area in future, it is a good idea to consider how you want to stay warm during the cooler seasons – fire pits and chimineas have a rustic charm, but gas or electric patio heaters are a solid option too.
Just because you are having a barbecue doesn’t mean you have to serve the same old thing! Burgers may be expected, but serving a seasonal menu will go down much better! Autumn is the perfect time to indulge in squashes, soups, homemade bread and baked potatoes (go wild with the toppings!). Baked apples or pears make the perfect dessert, and toasting marshmallows is always popular with children – both the young and not so young!
