Smaller (But Still Fun) Upgrades
Chiminea: Add Light & Warmth for Your Outdoor Space or Patio
Chimineas provide warmth on cooler evenings and an ambiance that makes outdoor gatherings cozier and more enjoyable. They are a perfect choice for a patio fireplace. Larger chimineas can provide more uses (heat source and for cooking), while smaller ones work best as a light source.
What is a chiminea?
A chiminea is a handcrafted wood-burning firepit ideal for backyard and patio areas. Our chimineas are handmade in Guadalajara, Mexico using El Barro clay.
How do you use a chiminea?
Dry wood (twigs and small branches) is best used for burning in chimineas. Keep the fires small during the first few uses to build up an ash base. If flames shoot out the top that means you’re using too much wood! Fires that are too hot could potentially damage the chiminea or create a dangerous situation.
Chimineas on display at our showroom in Narragansett.
Pro Tip (If You Have Kids or Grandkids): Get Bunch O’ Balloons
What is more fun than water balloons in the backyard? The answer is nothing.
What are Bunch O’ Balloons?
Pre-tied water balloons that attach to a garden hose, allowing you to fill 35 balloons in about 30 seconds.
How do you use them?
Attach the balloon stick to the end of a garden hose and turn on the water. Once the balloons are filled and heavy enough, they will drop off and tie themselves shut. It’s best to fill balloons in a kiddie pool or large bucket filled with water so they have a soft spot to land.
Where can you get them?
Lots of places. Walmart, Target, Amazon, and Costco regularly have them in stock.
Make Filling Balloons Even Easier
Get a garden hose shut-off valve to make filling balloons even easier on yourself. The valve allows you to control water flow, so you can fill the balloons wherever you want and you don’t need to be near the water spigot that’s attached to the house.
