So, it seems that summer is back – for the time being anyway! Last weekend saw temperatures soar right into the high 30s here in the UK, making it one of the hottest August Bank Holidays on record. It came as no surprise then, that a number of our clients decided to host impromptu pool parties. What could be more wonderful on a hot late summer’s day than to stretch out beside an inviting pool with a glass of chilled champagne within easy reach! Our range of outdoor furniture is perfect for such an occasion. Read on to get some top tips on pool party furniture hire to ensure your guests have a splashing time!
1. Soak up the sun on our brand new loungers
With their cool curved ergonomic shape, in pure white rattan, our Eden Daybeds (pictured left) are not just everyday sun loungers. Being our newest product, these wave-shaped beauties will earn you some serious style points. Made from water resistant synthetic rattan, they are perfect for pool party furniture hire, as they can resist the inevitable splashes.
2. Ensure your guests stay as cool as the pool!
When temperatures are sky high, make sure your guests stay cool by providing plenty of shade. Our large cantilever garden umbrellas are ideal for this. Change the angle as the sun moves throughout the day and choose whether to stay shady or catch some rays. Furthermore, as they’re weighted with 4 paving slabs, you can rest assured too that they won’t get blown away if the wind gets up!
3. Check out our waterproof daybeds
When everyone’s having fun in the pool, the last thing you want to be worrying about is keeping everything dry. Let’s face it, poolside furniture will get splashed! Our range of waterproof daybeds and loungers can eliminate the worry. Our Ocean Daybeds are made of completely waterproof faux leather, so are the ideal choice!
4. Serving food? Check out our cool bistro furniture hire….
So you’ve got your poolside seating, loungers, umbrellas and daybeds sorted. However, don’t forget about the refreshments! Why not fill some of our giant champagne bowls with bottles of fizz on ice. Place them atop our cube shaped, glass-topped Cabo Tables which are the perfect height alongside our daybeds and loungers. Serving a barbecue or buffet? Then you’ll probably want to create a separate dining area away from the pool! Why not check out our smart and stylish rattan bistro furniture, such as our South Beach range. In four or six seater versions in either white and black rattan, they’re a fabulous choice for casual dining.
