Father's Day

Get the large dining table outdoors for a perfect Father's Day

St Mawes Reclaimed Wood Garden Dining table and chairs outdoors

Instead of buying gifts for your dad this year, it is better to spend time together. Spend Father's Day with the whole family together and throw a party in the garden. Here are a few of our ideas to get your garden ready and some tasty food ideas. 

First things first, make sure you have somewhere to sit and find the perfect dining furniture for your garden. 

Adding some colour to your garden is always a good idea considering your outdoor space is mainly used in the summer months. The Oldman Slim Industrial Reclaimed Wood Garden Dining Set is a great option for an outdoor table which a little more character than a more traditional choice. The steel base can be left raw for a rustic, industrial look or can be powder coated in any colour from a choice of 50. Perfect for adding a playful twist to a reclaimed wood table.

The matching benches look great with the table, but if you need to get more people around the table, you could always add a few coloured dining chairs in a coordinating or contrasting colour, whatever your heart desires!

If you have lots of family, go for a large dining table like the St Mawes Garden Table in Reclaimed Teak. The wood dining table has an ingenious middle panel which can be removed to fill with ice and drinks - perfect on Father's Day for filling with your dad's favourite beers. 

If you have some extra patio space in your garden, an outdoor sofa is a fantastic addition. The Harting Rattan Garden Sofa Set is the ultimate in sophisticated outdoor entertaining and perfect for a chilled Father's Day sitting and playing games. 

If you have less space, the St Mawes Reclaimed Wood Round Bar Table Set is also a great option. Sit and chat with your dad, beer in hand, or enjoy breakfast together on one of the comfortable wooden stools. If you are doing breakfast, start the day of right with something healthy yet delicious. Crisp ham and egg cups are easy to cook and ready in no time, but are sure to impress dad. 

With a larger family gathering, lamb kebabs are a must. They are quick to cook so you can spend more time with family, and can be paired with almost anything; salad, wedges, cous cous or with other BBQ foods. 

Alternatively, go for something infused with your dad's favourite tipple. The sweet and spicy beer can chicken would make a really different take on roast chicken if your dad loves beer. Alternatively, whiskey burgers are something a little different if you are treating your family to a Father's Dad BBQ.
