Tables, Tables and More Outdoor Tables

Did you have the chance to get out and mingle with others over the Memorial Day weekend? Many of us were thrilled to be able to celebrate outdoors and host a barbecue this year. But not every luxury backyard was equipped to welcome guests again. In fact, we heard from many of our customers regarding one thing that would have made their Memorial Day barbecue even better: enough outdoor tables so that everyone has a place to put a drink or plate of food. With that in mind we offer you a short guide to the outdoor tables you need in your backyard oasis, particularly if you enjoy entertaining.

Side or End Tables

If your patio, deck or porch is heavy on seating, be sure you have enough side tables to go around. You and your guests are sure to enjoy deeply cushioned sofa or chair seating but the way to make it even more comfortable is to provide an end table in a location handy for each person.

Side tables do not have to match other pieces of outdoor furniture. In fact, these small outdoor tables can often act as accent pieces, especially if their design is unique. Take a look at this Nest 24” Square Side Table from Jensen. Its retro style is perfect in an outdoor space decorated with midcentury modern pieces. And Ipe hardwood means this side table will keep its good looks with minimal maintenance for years to come.

Here is a great end table, especially for entertaining. This Island Estate Lanai Tray End Table from Tommy Bahama Outdoor Living includes a handy tray top which helps to prevent messy spills.

Occasional Tables

What is the difference between a side or end table and an occasional table? Simply put, side tables are located, as mentioned above, alongside a seating piece just as end tables are usually placed at the end of furniture. Occasional tables however, are differentiated by their ability to be put anywhere. An occasional table can line a pathway or be located poolside, handy for holding a drink or a potted plant. This round occasional table by Castelle is a good example.

Bistro Tables

Another variety of outdoor tables is the bistro table. These are typically higher than occasional or side tables and often used with matching barstools for a handy place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or evening cocktail. They tend to be small in diameter and easily tucked into corners or on a narrow porch. This Misty Garden High/Low Bistro Table by Tommy Bahama Outdoor Living features French botanical style, perfect for a garden setting. It is crafted from cast aluminum, which holds up nicely against a variety of weather conditions.

Pub Tables

Placing plenty of pub, bar or counter height outdoor tables throughout your backyard is another way to ensure that your guests have space to both mingle with each other and have a handy home for their food and beverages – much like your favorite café or tavern. Unlike bistro tables, pub tables can be large enough to accommodate 6 or more people such as this Rectangular Bar Height Table from Telescope Casual. It even features an umbrella hole and could certainly be used as an outdoor dining table.

Do you have enough outdoor tables in your luxury backyard oasis? If not, consider adding a few extra tables before you entertain again this summer to ensure the comfort of your guests.
