We are less fortunate, in the UK, with regards to the weather. Therefore when the sun shines, however rare it may be, you get the chance to exploit it as much as possible. Long evenings, good food, great company, refreshing drinks and all in the comfort of your own garden - made possible and better by a garden table. In many ways creating your own 'Beer Garden' - who wouldn't want that?
Everything is better outside, eating is not an exception but it can sometimes be a little bit of a farce, when eating on a picnic blanket. Spilled drinks are also a common occurence on the picnic blanket, which is something we are all very keen to avoid. That's why a table is great, secure sturdy and a communal area to enjoy the warm summer days.
It's important to maintain and care for your outdoor furniture, to uphold their appearance, shield from the sun (have a look at the article from earlier in the week, perfect for this situation) and cover when raining, which is inevitable in the British summer. This may come in to mind when searching for the right garden table all-weather wicker and metal would be the easiest to care for, but sacrifice in other areas such as style, where more solid wood would be a better option.
What would a table be without chairs, therefore take time to choose the right chairs. Bright colours connote summer. Darker collect the heat more and can make for an uncomfortable seat. Whichever takes your fancy there are plenty of options below.
