With Valentine’s Day just around the corner we are looking back at one of our favourite fire pit stories.
When we set out on our Fire Pit journey we knew they were a talking point and in addition to that we knew that they were a key element in creating the right ambiance for outdoor spaces and of course this in turn ticks all the boxes for romance. The idea of sitting around fire light is an age-old tradition and is the scene for many romantic tales. Solus have added a contemporary twist on this and in doing so have made it that much easier to create the perfect romantic setting.
We were thrilled to have been part of the back drop for a romantic proposal at the Briarcliff Hotel in Massachusetts. Our Solus Hemi 48″ Firepit in the beautiful grounds of the Motel was chosen as the romantic spot where Keith proposed to Jamie at the Briarcliff Motel, located in the Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts.
It turns out that the groom, Keith, had seen the above picture of our Hemi 48″ firepit on the Briarcliff Motel’s Facebook page and made a special request for them to set up this area in preparation for his marriage proposal. He got down on one knee and popped the question at the romantic fireside setting with the beautiful backdrop of the Berkshire Mountains. In case you’re wondering, Jamie absolutely said yes. That’s the happy couple at left – you can see Jamie showing off her beautiful diamond solitaire.
It gives us huge pleasure to know that the Hemi firebowl has become a significant part of the attraction for people choosing the Briarcliff Motel.
It creates a beautiful atmosphere, allowing guests to enjoy the great outdoors all year round. Guests can relax around the fire while watching a beautiful sunset and stay toasty warm. As Valentine’s day descends upon us it is time to find your very own romantic spot and if it happens to include a fire – send us a photo.
