Celebrate Autumn

Yes, the Summer has well and truly left us, but do not despair, because here at Fireworks Den we can think of many reasons to celebrate autumn. We are not quite into the realm of those freezing nights, so take advantage of the last snippets of pleasant weather and take a look at some of the reasons we think you should celebrate autumn.

For a start, this time of year produces some of the most beautiful spectacles in the natural world. The leaves on the trees are turning into wonderful shades of reds and golden browns. There are myriad places across the UK to visit open parks and spaces to witness this for yourself. You can go to Kew Gardens in London for example (where there is currently a great exhibition about edible plants too). This is one of our top picks to celebrate autumn and see the plants changing across the seasons.

There are also a heap of other events happening across the capital. There is something for everyone whether it be family days out, romantic places to visit, or festivals and art events. Here are some of our top picks which we think will help to lessen the post-summer blues and instead to celebrate autumn.

Of course, here at Fireworks Den, we think you should celebrate autumn with some fireworks! It’s not so incredibly cold outside just yet, but its getting darker earlier. This equates to perfect firework weather! We even have a firework with a perfectly apt name for this season. Check out ‘Ducks playing in the autumn leaves’. Of course there are many other fireworks available all year round at Fireworks Den, so if you are planning a firework evening to celebrate autumn – or any other occasion for that matter, then don’t hesitate to come in store or contact us and we will be happy to help.

Graduation Fireworks

May and June is the time for graduation celebrations, and what better way to mark the occasion than with some fabulous graduation fireworks!

Thousands of students will be graduating at this time of year, from schools, colleges and universities across the country. Many will be leaving good friends to move on to pastures new, whilst others might have reached the end of their studies altogether. Fireworks are often used at times of celebration, and therefore graduations are no different. Graduation fireworks and organised displays are becoming increasingly popular in the UK after many years of seeing these kinds of celebrations in the USA.

You can see some great graduation firework displays here:

Graduation fireworks do not have to be large scale events based on academic premises however. It is very possible to arrange smaller private garden displays with just the closest friends and family to enjoy. Sometimes a more intimate affair can even make the celebration that bit more special.

Here at Fireworks Den we sell fireworks all year round and for all occasions. There are fireworks to suit all budgets, and plenty to fit into smaller inner- city gardens safely.

Check out some of these – we think the names are pretty appropriate for celebrating academic achievements!

Of course you do not have to choose fireworks based purely on the name, you can also browse all of the fireworks on the website and then choose effects of the fireworks, perhaps by colour, spread, or speed of the shots.

If you have recently graduated or are due to graduate this Summer, then CONGRATULATIONS from Fireworks Den, and we hope you choose to celebrate with us! Contact us here for any further information.

Indoor Fireworks

Indoor fireworks are back! Many years ago, indoor fireworks were a popular way of creating that extra special finale to a party. However they created vast amounts of smoke and mess, and they were even considered potentially dangerous . As a result, many EU regulations led to indoor fireworks being prohibited in many countries. The good news is, after years of research and redesign, indoor fireworks are back on the market and available for you to buy now!

There are many varieties of indoor fireworks available to buy. Packs of indoor fireworks include some of the old favourites as well as new and exciting indoor fireworks too. There are still flashes and bangs with colourful effects, only this time without the excess smoke and mess.

There are two selection pack options of indoor fireworks available to buy at Fireworks Den. They offer slightly different fireworks from each other, but both a great choice if you want some variety in the choice of effects.

In addition to these indoor fireworks, we also have ice fountains for sale. These are also suitable for use indoors. Ice fountains are a popular choice to use in a cake or champagne bottle, and there is also a handheld option available too. The effect of ice fountains is similar to a traditional roman candle firework, only on a smaller scale.

There are now even options for indoor sparklers in the indoor firework range. These produce less smoke than traditional sparklers used outside, and are therefore perfect for use inside.

We would still recommend that you are in a well ventilated room when using indoor fireworks, and that you they are used following all safety precautions. They are not toys and should be used by responsible adults.

For more information about indoor fireworks for sale, please visit the dedicated page on our website here.

We look forward to helping you soon. We are open 7 days a week.

Comic Relief

Comic Relief, or more commonly known as Red Nose Day falls on Friday 15th March 2013. Comic relief is a UK based charity which operates 365 days a year. However, on 15th March, the charity has a large scale televised event in order to raise awareness of international poverty, and most importantly, to raise money to help those people in need. Events are held across the UK – in schools, offices, as well as many privately organised events.

Here at Fireworks Den, we are suggesting you host a fireworks party in aid of Comic Relief, and ask friends to donate to the cause. You could watch all of the Comic Relief coverage on TV, and then take your friends outside and perform a wonderful firework display. It will be a great evening for all your friends and family to enjoy.

Why not choose fireworks with red coloured shots to keep in the Comic Relief theme. You can see all of our fireworks on our website. Our favourite red fireworks are ‘Crown of Rubies’ and ‘Zero to Sixty’. You need to make sure you have the right space to use these safely. You can always contact us for advice.

You can get more information about Comic Relief and how to make donations from their official website.

Have a great time, stay safe, and raise lots of money for Comic Relief!
