We’ve rather got used to leaving the house without a jumper on haven’t we? But, soon enough, the autumnal chill will set in and this surprisingly lovely summer will be a thing of the past. Make the most of what’s left and spend a ridiculous amount of time outside basking in the warmth. One of the best ways to enjoy yourself in the sunshine is by eating and drinking with friends all day long. Definitely. Take a look at our essentials for dining in the garden…
First off, you’ll need something comfortable to sit on. Our Pleasure Gardens Rattan Bistro Set has currently got a massive saving, and it’s a seriously beautiful table with matching chairs that’ll look wonderful in your outdoor space. Unfortunately, this country has a thing about bucketing it down when you least want it to, so – just to be on the safe side – you could also place a Gazebo with Full Set of Side Panels over the top of it.
You may have a really accessible kitchen which you’d prefer to work from but, if you like outdoor cooking, then you can’t beat a barbecue like the 4-Burner Gas BBQ with Side Tables. And, of course, you can’t beat the summery taste of chargrilled treats. This creation features three main gas burners, a chrome-plated cooking grill and lots of storage on the side shelves and base shelf; ideal for al fresco dining.
As for tableware, we’ve chosen some of our personal favourites. Get the Tokyo 16-Piece Dinner Set in bright red to embrace the brightness of summer. This square-shaped set is truly modern, and each piece is both microwave- and dishwasher-safe too. Join them with our stainless steel Amefa Monogram Bead Cutlery Set (24 piece) and add in the funky Ravenhead Viva 4 Hi Ball Glasses for good measure.
If you want the experience to last all night long, don’t forget to provide some warmth with the Full Height Patio Heater. This creates plenty of warmth to keep the chill at bay when the sun goes down, so you can enjoy your outdoor space for longer.
