Light up the Fall Season with a Fire Table

Light up the Fall Season with a Fire Table

It’s mid-October. The days are getting shorter. You’ve pulled your favorite, cozy sweaters, boots and jackets out of the closet. You’re eating pumpkin-flavored everything, going apple picking, watching football, and getting ready to carve Halloween pumpkins with your family. But even though you’re “all in” on Fall, you can’t help missing those lazy summer nights spent out on the patio with friends.

There’s a way to extend the outdoor season before the snow moves in: fire tables. It’s a propane-powered alternative to a wood fire pit that’ll get your family back outside, soaking up the scent of leaves and cool, crisp air.


What Is a Fire Table?

Simply put, a fire table looks a lot like a coffee table with a fire pit in the middle. But instead of fueling it with wood or those ready-to-light logs, you hook it up to your trusty Blue Rhino propane tank. A lot of fire tables are very sleek and modern-looking, with fire-safe stones in the middle where the flame is. They come in all shapes and sizes, so you find one that fits your outdoor space perfectly.

Fire tables are simple to set up and a lot easier to use than traditional fire pits. Lighting them is similar to lighting a propane grill; You turn on the gas, hit a starter button and wait for the flame to ignite. Turning them off is just as simple. Turn off the gas, and watch the flame go out. And you never have to worry about running out of wood. As long as you have propane in your tank, you can have an outdoor fire on a cool Fall evening.


How Can I Use a Fire Table?

Fire tables add a certain warmth and ambiance to your backyard space. Whether you set one up on your deck or your patio, the warm glow encourages family and friends to gather around, swap stories, share food and drinks, and just spend quality time together. Be sure to have plenty of seating because your backyard is about to become the hot spot in the neighborhood.

Fire tables also add warmth – literally! Just like gathering around a traditional fire pit, fire tables cast a circle of heat for people sitting nearby. It’ll allow you to enjoy those chilly nights with a warm cup of apple cider in hand.


What Are the Benefits of Using a Fire Table?

Fire tables provide clean-burning, smoke and ash-free flames. That means, when the wind shifts, you won’t get smoke in your eyes. You won’t have to switch seats just to stay away from the smoke, and no more smelling like a bonfire when you go back inside your home! Plus, you won’t be cleaning those pesky flecks of ashes off your favorite sweatshirt.

Fire tables are also a great, free-standing option. You’re not tied to putting it in one particular area of your yard. Change things up as you rearrange your patio furniture to fit your needs.

You also won’t have to find a place in your yard to store a cord of wood and figure out how to keep it dry. No more awkward deliveries or hauling the wood from the bed of your pick-up truck to your backyard. As long as you have a fresh propane tank, you’re all set.


Can I Cook Food on My Fire Table?

One bonus to owning a fire table? You can make a snack! They’re a great way to teach the kids to make s’mores.

Bonus points if you come up with some great, spooky stories to tell as Halloween gets closer.
