After years of kids, family and guests coming in and out of the house, I’ve been conditioned to roll with just about anything. I wasn’t always the laid back hostess that I am now. In my younger days, I would have had a complete meltdown had I planned a get together and extra guests showed up unexpectedly. It’s embarrassing if you don’t have enough to accommodate those extra people. Is there enough food? Where will they sit and will everyone be comfortable? You need to be plan for the unexpected – that’s the key.
Furniture Made for Outdoor Dining and Entertaining
So what did I need? A second refrigerator, stacking chairs and an extension dining table. I’m not talking about the old school extension table in the dining room that you clear off completely before pulling apart and adding in multiple leaf pieces while cramming extra chairs into a tight room. Not my style. Instead, I send everyone outside in the backyard where the party can grow!
The Monique Collection by Fifth & Shore is the perfect outdoor furniture set for dining and entertaining. It was designed to hold up, stretch out and grace your outdoor living area with style and comfort. Made of 100% rust proof aluminum, its built to withstand the outdoor elements. The glass top table and sling dining chairs are available in two different colors and high-quality fabrics to fit your outdoor decor.
The best part is of this outdoor dining set is the Easy Glide table system that allows it to extend and retract with one pull – it’s so easy and effortless. Now worries when the unexpected dinner guests pop up. You can even expand the table while it is already fully set! No need to clear off the table, no hassle, just pull back on the head of the table and watch the leaf slowly rise up. Its unique design is the only one on the market. This outdoor dining table extends all the way from 71″ to 94.5″, making it easy to accommodate more guests. Same easy pull when the leaf retracts down into storage position under the table. It’s so convenient – I love not having to worry about storing the extra leaf. I can’t tell you how many times this simple, extension feature has made it easier to host and enjoy the party.
Everyone in the neighborhood knows that our patio is always ready for an outdoor get-together. Now with the Monique outdoor dining collection, I can calmly say, the more the merrier!
