St. Georges Day is a day of celebration and with the weather turning warmer, it’s an excellent opportunity to make the most of your garden. It’s a good excuse to throw a party, or to host a meal with family and friends.
Regardless of how you want to celebrate, our garden furniture range has everything needed to create the best outdoor living space for St. Georges Day, and with White Stores, a good garden party is only a step away.
How To Slay Your Garden Layout
As you may or may not know, St. Georges Day celebrates England’s patron-saint and used to be traditionally commemorated with a feast. Now, it’s more so a celebration. This celebration is usually associated with parties at home, and in our opinion, the best venue for this is your garden.
No garden party is complete without patio furniture, so don’t sweat it if your garden isn’t party-ready, as we have some Nova Outdoor Living options to help with that.
For a feast, the Classic outdoor dining collection is best for setting the scene. With table features including gas firepits, ice buckets, parasol holes and a table extension, there’s something for you and your guests.
If the sun is out as you celebrate, and you need to keep your drinks ice-cold, then the Amelia and the Olivia ranges are the ones to look out for as they have the option of an ice bucket. With the choice of a round or oval table shape, and with options including six or eight seats available, it’s wonderful for dining with a larger group.
These rattan sets don’t just offer practicality, they’re super comfy! The Olivia range has thick supportive backs and curved armrests, so once the party is over, you can chill-out with ease. The Amelia dining range has the same level of comfort, but in a different style with the chairs having a higher back, helping to keep you upright as you eat.
We understand formal dining isn’t for everyone, so if you want something a bit more laid-back, then the Heritage collection has some options for casual dining. The popular and premium Cambridge and Ciara ranges come with a left-hand and right-hand configuration and the option of a dining table extension. These sets usually include a sofa piece, several footstools, and chairs, alongside the casual dining table.
This gives you the possibility of different layouts and gives you the freedom to celebrate how you want to. An extending dining table is a good example of this, as the table extends by pulling it out from beneath the original and both tables are topped with 5mm tempered safety glass which offers protection and an easy to clean surface.

a good garden party
is only a step away.
Bringing The Heat
While the weather is usually warmer this time of year, the temperature can drop. Whether it’s to keep you warm or to add atmosphere to your festivities, our CE-certified fire-breathing firepits bring the heat of a dragon’s breath but with safety and style.
The firepits come in rattan, aluminium and GRC, with a wind guard to prevent the flames from blowing onto you and your guests and the rattan options have extra protection with tempered glass. These firepits won’t get in the way of your dining experience, either, as they have a stainless-steel lid to cover them when not in use.
While you’re partying or dining, we have parasols that’ll give you ample cover not only from those troublesome dragons but from sun rays too. If you’re on a budget, then the Antigua range features our easily operated crank and tilt aluminium parasols which can be used in conjunction with a dining table or as a standalone parasol providing you use a weighted base.
This range is treated with a PA coating, ensuring resistance to sun bleaching, and fading. Plus, the canopy is removable, so you can give it a wash whenever you like. It’s 200g canopy gives enough shade for you and your friends/family and will keep you protected from harmful UV rays.
The square ribs on this range are much stronger than others, measuring at 12 x 18mm they’re more durable than standard parasol ribs.
If you want a different kind of coverage, then consider our pergola collection. These collections feature the award-winning Titan, which was given the Red Dot Design Award for its intuitive guttering technology.
These are made from aluminium and can be free-standing or wall mounted and have the option of privacy screens. Standing at an average height of 3m, our pergolas are built for adverse weather, but can they withstand a dragon’s weight? That we can’t guarantee.
A Garden Victory
To add the finishing touches to your successful garden event, we have a variety of possibilities, from water features to scatter cushions. Our water feature range will add a gorgeous focal point in your garden, enhancing that celebratory atmosphere with our features doubling up as lighting thanks to their LED lighting.
While our furniture comes with padded cushions and seats as standard, we do provide the option of purchasing scatter cushions separately, giving you the option of even more comfort. They come in an assortment of colours and patterns and are made to match the furniture ranges we sell. So, when the party or meal is over, you can relax without hesitation.
Celebrating any occasion has never been more straightforward than shopping with White Stores. We have everything needed to make St. Georges Day a day to remember, visit one of our showrooms or website to celebrate in style.
