5 Ways to Perfect Camping in Your Backyard

If you get too cold, you can just jump back into your own bed. Forget something? Simply run back inside and get it!

Choosing the right tent is key when it comes to camping – it also depends on if you want to do traditional camping or if glamping is more your thing.
Often, it’s best to size-up. So, if you’re a family of 4 then getting a 5 or 6-man tent is the best way to go. Don’t forget, your pets could also be piling in for the night too!
You don’t have to break the bank either, you can get tents that cost upwards of $1,000, but you can also get more basic models.
It depends on how close to nature you want to get…
TIP: If you’re serious about camping, make sure your tent can withstand life in the ‘wild’ and not just fun in the backyard.
Build lasting memories gathered around a fire pit with those you love.
Toasting marshmallows or having a full BBQ feast can be a great activity to do when camping or enjoying the great outdoors.
A wood-burning fire pit is perfect for versatility – great for keeping warm and cooking with ease, al fresco.
You can even have fun chopping wood together or gathering sticks to go on your log burning fire pit.
Who doesn’t love cozying up in the crisp, fresh air watching a fire dance, smelling the burning wood and listening to the crackling while feeling it’s warmth?
Our wood-burning fire pits start at just over $100.
You don’t want to be rummaging around in the dark looking for a light.
Therefore, solar lights are the perfect solution; after charging in the sun all day, they’ll automatically turn on at night.
Our wicker pendant light features adjustable lighting and are portable with a clamp to easily move and hang wherever you’d like!
Whether it’s a table lantern or hanging tree lights, a soft glow adds ambience to your backyard or garden year-round.
When the kids have snuggled down in their sleeping bags, but you aren’t quite ready for bed yourself, it’s nice to have somewhere for the adults to relax nearby.
Grab a blanket – and relax into a comfy chair. Our high back, pull-out ottoman is perfect for sitting back and kicking your feet up.
5. SOFT BLANKETS
Don’t underestimate how many blankets and cushions you’re going to need to make everyone comfortable.
You want to keep everyone cozy outside, especially when it starts to get cooler as the temperatures drop.
Piling up blankets on top of a picnic blanket will make the surface more comfortable and you can always pull one up over you if needed for warmth.
Also, you won’t want to use your best living room throws so we suggest you use ones with removable covers that are machine washable.
Slip into some fluffy slipper socks for good measure, there’s nothing worse than cold feet…
So that’s it, everything you need for an evening of camping in your backyard.
You don’t need to be abroad to have an amazing time. All you need is your loved ones and the great outdoors.
