Decorate Your Space for a Summer BBQ

Summer is here! With sunny days and extra free time, what else is there to do besides host an outdoor BBQ? With 4th of July and Labor Day on the horizon, it’s important that you’re able to host some friends while delicious food and drinks are shared in your outdoor space – backyard, patio, balcony, whatever your situation is. The coming national holidays aren’t the only reason to have friends over. Summertime brings about birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, and many other fun reasons to grill and enjoy yourselves with loved ones!

When hosting outdoor events, the key to success is ample seating! You want your guests to be able to easily eat and make conversation with others. In order to save on the cost of more than one dining table, might we suggest strategically placing coffee tables with a chair or two around your outdoor space? Often, people just place plates of food in their laps. The height and width of the coffee tables that you choose is not as important as simply having flat surfaces to place important things on, like your beer!

Here at Nadeau, we certainly know a thing or two about the maintenance of wood furniture. That is why we absolutely recommend using metal pieces for hosting potentially messy outdoor events. It is a whole lot easier to remove barbecue sauce stains off of metal than it is off wood.

Regardless of your home’s indoor interior design, we suggest you cozy up to industrial style for the outside areas of your home as it typically features wood & metal or completely metal designs.

Coffee Table \\ $119 \\ Item #PR616

These industrial coffee tables with intricate designs are sure to infuse some extra soul into your outdoor space. No longer must you worry about your expensive wood getting spilled on and spoiled.

A lot of surface space is needed, especially if you are hosting a catered event or a potluck, for example. In those situations, we recommend having at least a few size-able tables.
