Ideas for enjoying your Belgard Backyard from Lifestyle and Entertaining Expert, Alexandra Hedin.
. . .The outdoors provides the perfect spot for entertaining during the crisp days of fall – but those crisp days also call for a way to stay warm. An outdoor fire is the perfect centerpiece for a fall celebration. A basket full of pine cone fire starters next to your fire pit or outdoor fireplace invites the party to continue as the evening cools down. Homemade fire starters are easy to make. By making them yourself, you can infuse them with scents like lavender, which is a natural mosquito repellent.
Here’s what you’ll need
- Muffin tin
- 12 paper muffin liners
- 1 ½ pounds paraffin wax
- Candle wick
- 12 dried pine cones
