We’ve experienced some of the best weather already this summer, let’s just hope this continues throughout the summer so that we can enjoy spending our summer in the garden at home. If you’re a keen entertainer and enjoy hosting dinner parties at your home, we’ve got some fantastic outdoor furniture that will up your hosting skills this year as well as providing the needed comfort that everyone looks for in garden furniture. If you own comfortable furniture throughout your house then doesn’t your garden deserve the same.

2020 HARTMAN ATLAS SQUARE CASUAL GARDEN DINING SET WITH CERAMIC SQUARE TABLE – CARBON/PEWTERWe’ve got so many perfect outdoor furniture options for you to choose from, so if you’re looking to purchase or replace furniture for your garden, keep reading.

One of the first sets that we have chosen as a considerable contender for the best outdoor furniture for garden parties is, the 2020 Hartman Atlas Square Casual Garden Dining Set. This is a sophisticated and modern set sure to please your guests at the next dinner party, the grey colouring contributes to the modern and sleek styling of this outdoor furniture and would look perfect within the garden of a modernist house.

The soft spongy weather-ready cushions provide the ultimate comfort to this lounge set and what’s best is that if you forget to bring the cushions in one night, the cushions will repel a good level of water (although to ensure maximum use out of them, please try and remember to bring them in 😊).


For a more formal dinner party experience where you can sit up to a table, we’d recommend the 2020 Hartman Westbury 6-Seat Garden Dining Set, this set comes complete with a parasol and a lazy susan, what else could you want to be included in your dining set? The lazy susan feature is perfect for hosts that are fed up of leaning across the table to reach things, now all you need to do is turn the plate.

The rattan weave and aluminium frame mean that you can easily move around the garden as you please thanks to the lightweight material. Another bonus to these materials is that they are highly durable meaning that you can leave them out all year and can use them to host your dinner parties for years to come.

Another option for people looking for a slightly larger dining set is the 2020 Hartman Capri 8 Seat Rectangular Garden Dining Table Set. This dining set is made purely out of cast aluminium and like the Hartman Westbury set mentioned above is also lightweight and hard-wearing which will keep your furniture looking pristine. Whether you are hosting a couples garden party or are hosting a family at your home, the 8 seats provide plenty of seating space for your guests.

For those looking for something in between a lounge set and a dining set, the 2020 Kettler Palma Casual Garden Dining Corner Set with Fire Pit, is a fantastic choice to wow your guests. The best part of this has got to be the fire pit, what a great feature to take you from day to night and keep you warm as the sun goes down (you could maybe even toast some marshmallows). When you aren’t using the firepit, you’d think that the space on your table would be compromised, but you’d be wrong. This set of furniture for your garden has the ability to store away this fixture by detaching the guard and sliding the hideaway lid onto the table, ensuring maximum capacity at the table.

How many times have you been short of chairs when hosting guests? Additionally to the sofa, another reason this set is a great set of outdoor furniture for garden parties is the dining stools that come within the set, a perfect inclusion for those who love to entertain.

Finally, if you’re missing meeting with friends at the local bars, our 2020 Hartman Heritage 6 Seat Garden Bar Table Set is the outdoor furniture for garden parties that you need. Host guests around your tall rattan bar table complete with 4 bar stool chairs and party the night away.

Thanks to the weather-ready cushions you may even be comfier than you would be sitting on the hard wooden or metal stools that are normally in bars. We’d recommend storing these cushions though when you aren’t using them, and if you’re not sure where to store them, don’t panic, the table frame comes with a built-in cushion box, a great feature of this set.

Of course, there are many other options for outdoor furniture for garden parties, but these are just a few of our favourites. If you have any of these sets and are enjoying using them in this delightful weather, make sure to leave us a review if you haven’t already.
