As the sun sets earlier and the temperatures drop, it may finally be time to take advantage of your propane fireplace. Although wood-burning fireplaces have their charm, they are inconvenient compared to propane fireplaces. Building a wood-burning fire takes time and effort, but propane fires only involve flicking a switch. You’ll most likely have to hire a professional to occasionally clean out your old-fashioned fireplace, which becomes more covered in bits of charred wood and soot over repeated uses. However, propane fireplaces burn clean and require low maintenance. Other than cleaning your propane fireplace once a year, the only other maintenance you will need is an annual inspection. Take advantage of your fireplace this fall by planning a date night:

Leave The Kids With The Grandparents

There’s no way you and your spouse can enjoy spending time together on a date when your kids are around. As much as you love your kids, they can suck the life out of your romance, and this night is just about you and your loved one.


Play some relaxing music, and nosh on some delicious appetizers. You could nibble on a delicious cheese plate or indulge in some fondue. If your spouse loves meat, perhaps you could cook up something with skewers on your propane grill.


No spirits are quite as associated with romance like wine, and red wine is the preferred choice. Hitting up your liquor store for a nice bottle of wine can be overwhelming. If you are unsure of which type of wine to purchase, find a store that specializes in wine. Oftentimes, the employees at such establishments have an excellent knowledge of wine and are happy to help you find the right spirits for your romantic occasion.


Because this date night is centered around your fireplace, you must refrain from watching TV. Tonight you are re-establishing your connection with your loved one, which cannot happen when you are both zoned out watching Orange is the New Black.

Cook Your Best Dish

We all have our strengths and weaknesses in the kitchen, so bring your strongest cooking game to the table tonight. If you make a slay-worthy spaghetti and meatballs dish, cook this tonight. If your seared Grouper recipe is to die for, break this dish out tonight. If you absolutely cannot cook, you could always pick up some takeout from your loved one’s favorite restaurant before your date.

Indoor Picnic

Place a blanket in front of the fireplace and dine with your better half while enjoying the warmth of the fire and your excellent choice of music. This is a great time to chat with your partner about anything, really. With the kids away and no outer distractions, you and your partner can finally spend time laughing and enjoying each other’s company.
