How do you plan on entertaining friends and family members for the holiday this year? Now is the time to take a good long look at your outdoor living area and add necessary pieces. Will there be enough outdoor dining chairs to enjoy a smoked turkey at Thanksgiving? Is there enough warmth on the patio to keep the senior members of your group warm? If your space could use a bit more in terms of comfort, consider all the ways it would help to add Tommy Bahama outdoor furnishings for holiday entertaining.
Your Backyard or Patio is an Extension of Your Indoor Living Space
We like to think of it as an outdoor living room. After all, like as not you spend lots – if not most – of your living enjoying the temperate climate, bright blue skies and the soothing waves of the ocean. The holiday season is no exception; in fact, for many of us in the San Diego area with limited space indoors find it just makes sense to entertain for the holidays in our outdoor living room.
Provide Plenty of Seating
Tommy Bahama Outdoor furnishings feature many high-quality seating pieces that allow your backyard oasis to mimic your indoor living area.
For instance, this gorgeous Blue Olive sofa with a classic herringbone wicker design easily seats 3 – 4 people and provides plush cushions for ultimate comfort. Combined with the matching coffee table that features a top similar to slate (but so much easier to care for), these pieces exemplify outdoor relaxation, perfect for holiday gatherings.
Another way to provide comfortable seating for guests is by incorporating individual seating areas with chairs, such as the Tommy Bahama Outdoor Royal Kahala Black Sands Swivel Rocker Lounge Chair and matching ottoman with intricate scrollwork design. Place several of these more intimate seating arrangements around your backyard and invite your guests to mingle and chat.
When it comes to time to dig into a holiday feast, you will want to ensure all your guests have a place to sit. This is the perfect time to invest in a larger outdoor dining set. This Tommy Bahama Outdoor Island Lanai dining table and chair set is the perfect example. The rectangular table is 84” long, providing enough room to add 6 or more dining chairs. The chairs are available as armchairs or rocking and gliding chairs.
But what about cocktails? The match for the Blue Olive sofa and table mentioned above is the Blue Olive Buffet/Console Table. Featuring the same classic herringbone wicker pattern on the surface, the front of the unit opens to reveal tons of clever storage space for all your drink accoutrements.
Finally, don’t forget to provide your holiday guests with warmth after the sun goes down. This Island Estate Lanai fire pit with matching highbacked armchairs functions as both an intimate place to dine and to soak up the warmth from convenient, quick-to-light gas flames. In addition to Tommy Bahama Outdoor furnishings, be sure to include a basket of soft, plush throws nearby so your friends and family members can get even cozier at the end of a holiday night outdoors.
When it comes to holiday entertaining, Tommy Bahama Outdoor furnishings have everything you need to make the occasion unforgettable.
