Time goes by so fast! It’s already time to start planning a firework display to welcome 2019!
Here are some tips to help you plan your New Year’s Eve 2019 firework display.
Understand Your Surroundings
One of the first things to consider is where you’re going to hold the display. Fireworks come in different categories and you need to have various safety distances depending on your chosen fireworks. Most garden fireworks need just eight metres so if you have a small garden, you want to pick these to your display. If you have more space around you, bigger fireworks will be available.
You might also think about possible noise issues. If you have pets or small children, you might want to consider opting for low-noise fireworks. These won’t make quite as big of a bang as regular fireworks although they still look just as good!
Set a Budget
You then want to think about your budget. You can spend as little or as much on fireworks as you want. The key is to focus on quality rather than just quantity. With the right fireworks, a five-minute display is all you need for a good New Year’s Eve display! If you are working on a tight budget, don’t forget to take advantage of the ‘Sale’ section on our website.
Pick the Perfect Fireworks
So, what makes a good display? As mentioned, you don’t need to go longer than five minutes although you can, of course, make your display as long as you want. The components of a good New Year’s Eve display are:
- Fountains and barrages for constant firing.
- Mines for a bit of colour and effects.
- Roman candles for filling gaps.
- Rockets to provide the grand finale.
Opt for Ease
If you don’t have time to start picking individual fireworks, we have you covered. You could opt for our selection boxes and have your New Year’s Eve firework display sorted with a click of a button! The boxes include everything you need for a good display.
Finally, you have to think about safety. Fireworks displays are fun as long as everyone stays safe. You can find plenty of tips from our previous blog posts in terms of storing fireworks prior to your display and what to do with old fireworks.
It’s important to have a steady firing area, point the fireworks away from crowds and buildings, and use safety gear to protect your eyes and hands. Do not fire fireworks if you’ve had a drink and don’t let children handle fireworks. If your fireworks don’t go off for some reason, don’t try to re-ignite them. Soak them in water and return to the store. When you treat fireworks with the respect they deserve, you’ll end up having a great night with family and friends!
