Our Cozy Outdoor Fire Pit in Maine
A couple of years ago, we built this stone fire pit at our home in Maine using rocks from around the property. You may read more in the post, How to Build a Simple and Classic Stone Fire Pit.

7 Fall Decor Fire Pit Ideas From My Backyard
Creating an outdoor cozy space around your fire pit in the fall can really be a very simple task.
This summer on the blog I talked about How to Fashionably Bring Your Dining Room Outside This Summer.
Now, we want to use some of the very same concepts in creating a cozy gathering space around our fall fire pits.
1. A Crate Full of Pumpkins or Gourds
I started with a visit to one of our local farm stands and filled up one of their colorful old boxes with 10 different colored pumpkins, mostly in the medium size range.
They let me keep the box and threw in an old vegetable crate, too. You never know how you may use these elements in your outdoor decor.
Scatter the pumpkins around your fire pit, easily creating all the vibes of fall.
2. Favorite Cozy Mugs
Add plenty of your favorite mugs around your fall fire pit area, whether it’s vintage glassware or an old thrifted lobster mug like this one. You can never have too many!
Having mugs that are unbreakable will make your gathering more comfortable, and probably you too, for that matter.
But I’m certainly guilty of bringing out my favorite vintage glassware, too…

3. Cozy Blankets
Add a cozy blanket to the chair for each person joining you around your fall fire pit. My favorite blankets for sitting around our fire pits are these blankets by Chappywrap, made right here in Maine.
SHOP CHAPPYWRAP BLANKETS
And I love this cozy blue blanket, too, that I found on a visit to the HomeGoods store.
I always recommend using blankets that you can easily throw in the washing machine after your cozy fall fire pit gathering. As the blankets can collect grass stains, smoke fumes, drink and food spills, etc…
As much as I’d love to bring out one of my mother’s quilts to snuggle up in around the fire, it’s just not that practical.
4. Duraflame Firestarters
In order to be cozy, things need to be simple and organized. We start all our backyard fire pits with duraflame’s firestart sticks.
Your fire will be roaring in less than 20 minutes with no fuss, allowing you to attend to your small gathering.
I love this Pinecone Fire Starters DIY too, shared by my friend Yvonne over at Stone Gable.

5. A Canvas Bag to Transport Your Goodies
I received this cute little canvas bag at a Bloggers Retreat at Stonewall Kitchen this past weekend.
This got me thinking that using a bag to carry your food goodies in and out of the house is a perfect way to keep your cozy fire pit gathering simple and clean.
6. Your Favorite Pillows
Lombard pillows, colorful pillows, any pillows! Whatever makes you and your guests feel comfortable around your fall fire pit.
It’s cold here in Maine, so blankets and pillows are a definite must for cozy fall fire pit weather…

7. A Basket for Wood and Kindling
Old baskets, crates, buckets, etc., work well for all your extra fireside woods and kindling.
