Ways to Upgrade Outdoor Setting for Summer Soirees

Ways to Upgrade Your Outdoor Setting for Summer Soirees

Sure, Australian summers can bring the heat, but they also offer the perfect opportunity for long, lazy outdoor entertaining sessions. Whether you’re in the mood to fire up the BBQ, to lounge by the pool for the afternoon, or mix up cocktails on the deck, there’s no better time to make the most of outdoor living spaces with family and friends.

If your outdoor entertaining areas are in need of some refreshments before you send out invitations to a summer soiree, here are our top picks for making the most of outdoor living.

Start with your dining set

A great outdoor dining set is the foundation for every great dinner party to come. Set yourself up for success with a table and chair combination that allows ample space for the whole family (and your favourite last-minute guests).

Smaller spaces can benefit from round tables, which are less likely to have a big footprint that’s hard to navigate around. For big decks, verandahs or larger outdoor patios, long, rectangle tables or large square tables can create a focal point for those summer evening moments.

Don’t forget the pool

A high-quality pool recliner can certainly set you back on the savings front – but with furniture rentals from Pabs, you can have your cake and eat it too.

If your pool’s been dormant over the colder months, now’s the time to make sure it’s ready for plenty of action. Daybeds, pool recliners and outdoor chairs can add ease and relaxation to summer days spent in the pool. Find the perfect piece of furniture to settle into as you make your way through your summer reading list – you’ll be spending a lot of time there!

Lounge in the open air

Outdoor lounges continue to advance in comfort, style and capacity. Adding a lounge set to your space is the perfect way to create a new zone in your home, inviting rest, relaxation, socialising and naps in the open air.

Three-seaters, two-seaters and single-seaters can all be combined to create the right configuration for your family’s needs. With Pabs’ furniture rental, you can test layouts and lounge fits, embracing different seasons in both form and function.

Don’t forget the details

Even a new set of cocktail glasses can set the scene for lingering summer meals. With fun, quirky or classic homewares options, you can personalise your outdoor space by mixing and matching serving dishes, glassware, plates, cutlery sets and more. 

There’s only one thing left to do once you’ve made your outdoor entertaining picks: find the new cocktail recipe that’ll define your summer memories.
