Whether you’re heading to the beach or just out the back door a bonfire is a party that screams SUMMER! The best part is it’s one of the least expensive ways to entertain. Start post dinner, around 8:00 and use the recipes below along with some marshmallows and sticks to create a fun evening of laid back fun.
Now here is the ultimate bonfire invitation! Head to your local dollar store or cruise the web for some jewelery boxes, next grab a bag of Hershey’s minis (if you can’t find those break up a Hershey bar similar to the way they show the gram cracker done), some wax paper to wrap your graham crackers, a bag of marshmallows, a box of matches some grahms and your set. All you need to do now is print out a small invite (create it in Paint or Word on your computer) and viola!
