How to Have the Best Beach Bonfire this Winter | Beachly Tips
Aloha, sunshine! The Winter Beachly Box was inspired by evenings spent bundled up on the shore at a beachside bonfire. It's cozy, coastal, and everything you need to make this Winter the warmest and most stylish yet! With such a cozy theme, it only felt right to tell you Beachly's tips to being the hostess with the mostest to have the best beach bonfire of the season.
It's easier than you'd think, you just need a few supplies, a good group of friends or family to bring along, and of course, the Beachly Winter box! Seriously, this box comes in handy for this event - why else would it be the theme of the season!?
Psst! Don't have a Beachly subscription? No worries! You can still get the Beachly Winter box and at a killer price! Use code WINTER30 at checkout and get $30 off your first box! That's $300+ worth of coastal goodies for only $69!
Now, I know this may sound obvious, but there have been a countless number of times that I get a group of friends together to have a nice evening bonfire at the beach and guess what? No one brought the essentials so it's a last minute scramble to get the goods! I don't want that happening to my Beachly Tribe, so be sure to get these essentials first and foremost:
- Matches or a lighter
- Firewood + starter sticks (newspaper also works!)
- Lighter fluid
You're a smart group, I am sure that these are obvious, but you don't want to show up and realize that you're missing one (or all) of these! On top of these fire-making essentials, I always am sure to bring my favorite beach chair. Sure, you can sit in the sand, but it can sometimes be very cold and better to feel comfy and cozy while lounging with your pals! On that note, be sure to invite your best friends to make the night the most memorable!
Lastly, bring a blanket! Although there is a fire, that won't be enough to keep you warm and toasty all evening long. Luckily, the Beachly Winter Box has the perfect coastal and cozy blanket by our friends over at Thula Tula! It's not only soft, but it's super stylish and will make for the perfect bonfire-evening candid.
Snacks, music, and more!
If you know me, you know there's nothing I love more than sitting back and relaxing with my favorite snacks and drinks. Well, that doesn't change at the bonfire! You'll want to hang out for a while and that means people will get hungry. Whether someone brings a pizza, you decide to grill some hamburgers and hotdogs, or you just bring some snacks for the night, you won't want anyone getting hangry and ruining the good vibes.
My personal recommendation, is to throw it back to your childhood nights and bring all the essentials for some delicious, gooey s'mores. You'll be laughing when marshmallows go ablaze and seeing all your friends relive precious childhood moments.
Now, you don't think I'd forget about music, right!? If you didn't know I am a huge music fan - you can even check our the Beachly Spotify here and see what the Beachly team is listening to when they're hard at work! Be sure that you, or someone joining the party, brings a speaker! You can play your favorite tunes when hanging out and make the night even more special.
My personal favorite? The Speaqua Vibe 2.0 which you can get in the Beachly Member Market for a discounted price! This speaker is loud, 100% waterproof, and can suction to your cooler or beach chair!
Speaking of coolers, be sure to bring one packed with your favorite drinks to wash down all the snacks you're bringing! They can even double as a seat for some of your friends, as long as they don't mind playing bartender, of course!
Phew! What do you say? Are you ready to throw the best Winter Beach Bonfire with some of your closest friends? It doesn't take too much to throw together, but it can make for a night full of the best memories. It is also the perfect time to show off some of your Beachly box Winter goodies!
You can also check out the Beachly Member Market for other bonfire-essentials and save the Beachly Spotify for music inspiration for the night!
Until next time, Beachly Tribe - sending good vibes your way!
