Tea for two… everything you need for entertaining and enjoying your garden in comfort.
Whether you like to dine al fresco during the warmer months, or simple love to relax during comfortable evenings in the sun with a bottle of wine, our garden bistro sets provides the perfect seating for both you and another. What’s more we have plenty of advice for making the most out of your new bistro set.
Creating an idyllic setting for your bistro set
Our collection of bistro sets are the perfect comfortable compliment to any garden, however making the most from your new seating should see you thinking about where in your garden you’ll place your set. By far the most effective option is to create a secluded or sectioned off area and this is far more achievable with relatively little effort that many imagine. Here are our four quick start tips for creating your ideal seating area within your garden.
Sectioning off your area
Sectioning off your area can be as simple as framing the seating area with posts or stakes (which can range from candle stakes to topiary stakes).
Thinking about lighting
To truly get the most out of those long summer nights you’re going to need a little lighting. This can range from a (safely) placed fire pit, to candle holders (such as the Metal Silhouette Owl) and could additionally include strong lighting (such as the 10 Metal Stars, which can circle your seating area).
Thinking about a dramatic entrance
A lovely way of finishing your dining area is to add a trellis arched entrance; this can feature training plants, or can be left bare as a simplistic entrance.
Choosing the right bistro set for your garden style
For the contemporary garden
For the modern garden there can be no more fashionable a bistro set than that fashioned out of weave (which additionally serves as the easiest to maintain). These include free standing and completely separate three pieces, such as the Selena Tea for Two or those that are formed of one piece, such she San Marino Companion Set.
For the traditionally English garden
Generally the traditional English garden benefits from sets that are fashioned out of either iron, (or mock iron) or wood. These include the wonderfully intricately patterned Umali Bistro Set within our metal collection, or the Pine Famers Companion and the Cornish Companion Set (which handily features a large brolly for two, for those inevitably rainy winter nights).
For the luxiourous garden with low maintenance expectations
At Bents we don’t believe that luxury items should equate to difficult to maintain, which is why all of our products benefit from high quality production and design that is both practical and beautiful.
For the garden on a budget
Amongst our collection of bistro sets you’ll find many that fall below the affordable £200 price range. Sets such as these include the Rio Bistro Set in white, the Heritage Tea for Two Set and the Portofino Bistro Set.
