With the start of a rainy day we thought we'd share this post with you!

We love the cozyiness of sitting by a fire, especially under a sky studded with stars on a late summer night. What we like even better is to recreate this feel at home when you really need a night under the open sky but cant get away for a weekend of camping. Here are a few ideas to create your own little outdoor retreat at home...

A full on campfire may not be a possibility in your own backyard, but a nice sized fire pit will be just as cozy and is easy to make. Check out these great DIY instructions to create your own. If  you want the feel of the fire but on a smaller scale, check out how to make a tabletop fire pit here.

Create your own little fire bundles with aromatic herbs and botanicals. Wrap rosemary, lavender or pine in newspaper and tie off with twine. Throw into the fire for a burst of that woodland scent.

We love good food. It doesn't have to be fancy, just good quality and shared in good company. Campfire food to us immediately says cozy and comforting. Roast marshmallows on skewers. Give your s'mores a little twist by adding a salted dark chocolate (this is our favorite mid range brand) and a handmade graham cracker (we love this recipe by smittenkitchen).

Make your fireside event your own... for more cozy inspiration check out the etsy treasury we've put together to help you complete the look!
