If you are throwing a Bonfire Night party tonight, you are probably already getting together your final preparations. To make sure that your evening goes off with a well deserved bang, here at House of Harris we have created a short check list of little added extras that will make your Bonfire Night Party special. So put down your firework display timings and take a look at these fantastic tips.



Whether your Bonfire Night party is strictly for adults or a little more family orientated, no party is complete without a fun game. These can be as short or as silly as you like but a simply game is always a crowd pleaser. Charades and Who Am I are both great games that everyone can join in with, and are also a great way to keep the crowds entertained whilst you are busy catering.



If you haven't already planned to do so, make your food simple and easy to access. Traditional treats such as hot dogs, popcorn and toffee apples are always great to enjoy as you socialise. It also helps keep in with the timings of your evening, for example, if someone hasn't quite yet finished their food, they can still take it outside and watch the firework display.


Melt Burner

Bonfire Night is the perfect opportunity for everyone to get together before Christmas so including a few decorations will really help everybody to get in the party mood. Place a few tealights, scented candles and even oil burners around to fill the air with fragrance and create a great atmosphere.

Preparing For Bad Weather


When celebrating at a Bonfire Night party, it is almost essential that you prepare for bad weather. Put up a few umbrellas outside or even a gazebo if you own one to make sure that guests can still socialise in the garden even if it is raining.

Put Out A Few Fun Favours


Display a range of glow sticks, sparklers and other fun activities that everyone can get involved with. Make sure that sparklers are kept out of the way of children to avoid any accidents.
Have a great Bonfire Night!
