Gas Fire Pit Coffee Table

A Gas Fire Pit Coffee Table

Combine a place to rest your drinks with a place to keep warm with a brilliant gas fire pit coffee table. Put the coffee table in the middle of your seating area and your guests can sit around the fire pit and keep warm as well as put their drinks and snacks down within arm’s reach.

A Patio Heater

If you have children attending your party and you’re worried about a fire pit or just have several areas of the garden where people could spend time and you want to heat the whole garden, a patio heater is ideal.

A patio heater that attaches to a wall or a free-standing patio heater are perfect to generate enough heat to keep your guests warm.

Outdoor Lighting

At this time of year solar lights won’t cut it. If you opt for one of our patio heaters then they double up as outdoor lighting but if you want to light up the whole garden we recommend mains or battery operated string lights that can go around the garden attached to fencing or flower beds or even overhead.

Why not use some Christmas lights? Perfect for the time of year, they are readily available, suitable for outdoor use and bright and cheerful.

Shelter/Windbreak

A gazebo is a great way to provide some shelter in case it rains or is particularly windy. Alternatively, if you’ve got a summerhouse you could fill this with chairs and blankets and make sure it is warm and comfortable for your guests.

A BBQ

A barbecue in winter? We say, why not? Keep your guests fed and warm with some burgers and hotdogs. Plus, firing up the barbecue might generate some extra heat around the garden, too. If your barbecue has a hood, you can even keep it going if it happens to rain.

We believe there is no reason you can’t host a garden party this New Year’s Eve, even if it’s cold and rainy, there are plenty of garden furniture items you can use to keep your guests warm, dry, comfortable and happy going into the New Year. Plus, these are all items you can use year-round and get plenty of use out of in both summer and winter.
