Whether you’re having a home fireworks display to mark a particular occasion, or decide that you’d just love to have them as the central focus of a general party, they are a great way to bring people together during an event and always an exciting means of bringing a climax to the evening. With Bonfire Night fast approaching, it’s worth knowing what you need to do, and it isn’t too late to plan a display if you hadn’t given it much thought until now.
Although the ideal solution might be to hire a professional fireworks company to come to your home and take care of a display, you probably have to accept that it isn’t going to happen, both for reasons financial and practical. However, you shouldn’t let that stop you from having a great home fireworks display. Here are some tips that will help you get it right.
Set a Budget
While it won’t cost you the Earth to have a home fireworks display, naturally the more money you spend the more bang you’ll get for your buck. That said there are plenty of cheap fireworks available that will give you a stunning experience, and if you buy from ourselves, cheap doesn’t mean low quality. Think about how much money you’re looking to spend on a display, and then you can begin shopping for fireworks.
You don’t necessarily need to spend a fortune on your fireworks, but if you can stretch your money a little further, you’ll see the difference.
Think About What You Want
Do you want a relatively long display or something short and sharp? Deciding this will help you when it comes to choosing specific fireworks. There are many standard fireworks here at Fireworks Crazy that are great for putting together a simple home display that will last 10 – 15 minutes, which is easily long enough for a small display in your garden.
Consider the space you have in your garden, too. You don’t want to be buying a large variety if you don’t have room for Catharine Wheels and Roman Candles in addition to standard rockets.
You need to be thinking about safety before you even buy your fireworks and bring them home. The first point is that you need to have a dry, secure place where they can be stored, and covered with a fireproof sheet.
Point two is to think about where you’ll direct your fireworks when setting them off. Ideally, your home will be close to a field so you can aim them to detonate and fall in that area. You definitely don’t want a firework to be coming down right above you, and you should be considerate of your neighbours, too.
Finally, plan your safety aspects for the evening itself. Ensure that you’re going to be able to light the fireworks safely, and buy goggles and gloves to aid this. You should also have a specific area where people can stand to watch, which is marked clearly.
Yes, you’re having a fireworks display at home, but you need to think about how your guests are going to enjoy the occasion. That means having plenty of food and drink available, and while you won’t be able to indulge in alcohol before or during the fireworks, you’ll be able to enjoy yourself fully afterwards!
