Oh how we love the spring: for its warm, temperate days and cool nights, when the air is all abuzz with sound of busy bees and song birds, and the world comes back to life again, bursting with color. Long sunny days slowly fade into late evenings, and we while away the hours chilling on rooftops and balconies, or in the backyards on patios and decks with good friends and family.

Wherever you’re hanging out this spring, a fire pit can provide a spark of warmth and intimacy, inviting guests to linger a bit longer. As you will see after the jump, many choices await you for enchanting spring evenings, perhaps not unlike this movie night by the shore we spotted on Uncrate, warmed by the glow of fire pits in an array of sizes, styles and features … so pull a chair and stay a while.
