To create an outdoor entertaining area without going over your budget, opt for an outdoor dining or bar set designed for every type of occasion. Look for designs that feature 'mix-and-match' pieces that allow for versatile style placements – and which can be easily rearranged when necessary.
Lounging That Will Last
A durable fire pit designed for entertaining and 'gathering around' – complete with ledges for drinks and s'mores – is another 'all-purpose' piece that will save you money in the long run. Use it to effortlessly turn up the heat and keep your guests relaxed and comfortable – and look for ones made from durable, weather-resistant materials like stone, glass and aluminum that will stand up to years of heavy use.
