Patio dining sets come in a variety of sizes, shapes and styles. After looking through the website and finding the patio furniture set you want, it's time to plan a party to put that new set to work. Start by thinking of a theme for your dinner party and the menu and then jot down a list of people you want to invite. After all, what's the purpose of having a patio dining set if you don't gather around it to share good food and drinks with friends and family?
A patio bistro set comes with a small table and two or three chairs. A bistro set is perfect for couples to sit at while enjoying coffee in the mornings, cold lemonade after working in the yard, a lunch-sized salad made from fresh veggies from the garden or dinner after work. You'll find them constructed of a variety of materials: Rustproof aluminum, steel, resin wicker with metal frames, and so on. Popular colors include various shades of browns and neutrals, reds, greens, and white. Some of the bistro sets have chairs without arms. Others have arms. Bar-height bistro sets are also available. If you purchase a bistro set, you'll also have room for other patio accessories. You can shop for patio swings, rockers, gliders or loveseats.
