10th July Is National Teddy Bear Picnic Day!

10th July 2015 is officially “National Teddy Bears Picnic Day” and while we don’t sell much in the way of actual teddy bears we do have a nice range of Picnic Tables available.

The weather recently has been absolutely spot on for outdoor activities and looks to be remaining that way for a little while longer before the nights start to draw back in . This means of course that there is still time to grab yourself a bargain or two from Taylors and get some use out of it before the colder weather starts to appear!

We have a good selection of picnic tables for sale on our site and have models from the more traditional four seater type with built in bench seat to smaller versions in bright colours for your little ones (it is teddy bears picnic day after all!). In addition to that of course we also have a range of benches, we will take a quick look at one of these first..

Solid Garden Bench

Our most popular bench!

 

Without a doubt our most popular  bench is the Solid Garden Bench which is manufactured with slow-grown northern pine. This bench is a very sturdy model which is built to last  and has attractive finishings including a stylish leg design with smooth rounded timber. With a length of 5’11 (1.8m) and width of 1’10 (0.55m) this is sure to give many years of comfortable and trouble free  use in your garden.

 

Hardwood Junior Picnic Table

A colourful option for children

 

As I said we have a nice range of picnic tables to choose from with something for everyone of all ages, a popular one that we sell is the Hardwood Junior model which has a traditional look to it with a twist. It is designed to resemble the familiar 4 seater / built in benches variation that you often see in parks but as well as being a mini version for children it is also painted in bright cheerful colours which are very eye catching.

 

Children's Circular Picnic Table

Circular with 4 seats

 

If you are after another colourful bench for your kids how about our  Children’s Circular Picnic Table? Again with colourful built in seats, this model is circular with a brown table and is particularly handy if space might be at a premium.

 

 

Alice Children's Picnic Table

Seats 4 – 6 children

 

If the bright colours of those two might not fit in to your garden we also have a more traditional childrens version that is a natural wood colour, this model is called the Alice and seats 4 – 6.

 

 

 

Hardwood Picnic Table 210

For a large group.

For the grown-ups amongst us a popular picnic table is our Hardwood range. There are 4 sizes available in this collection ranging from the smallest at 160cm (5’3) in length up to the largest which measures in at 210cm (6’9). as the name suggests, these are manufactured in strong solid hardwood with sturdy 35mm planking. This table is suitable for use all year round and is sure to bring you many summers dining in the sunshine.

 

Superior Pine Picnic Table

Measures 3m in length!

 

The Superior Pine Picnic Table is another model we sell which has proven to be very popular, this beast of a table measures in at 3m in length (9’8) and has the added bonus of foldable seats. Due to its size, this table would be very handy for a large family or for a household that likes to throw parties and barbecues.

 

The Katie 80cm Round Picnic Table

Can be easily stored away

 

Of course, not everyone has a huge garden at their disposal (myself included!) so there isalso a nice smaller size selection  including some very stylish round models such as the Katie 80cm which can be stored away when not in use.

 

 

Picknick Easy Set

Easy to store away

 

Another worthy option is the Picknick Easy Set, this model has benches which are not fixed to the main table which allows you to be more flexible with the seating arrangements and as an added benefit the whole set can be folded away for easier storage. This model would be very good for people who like to go camping!

 

 

Take a look at our whole range!  A picnic table set is a highly attractive and functional addition to any garden and with so many sizes, colours and shapes available there is bound to be something for every style of garden in England!

Cabin Fever

Cabin Fever!

Not sure about you but the weather at the moment is getting me down.

I like the sun, the kids like the sun, the animals like the sun and we especially don’t like the cold and the wet.

Even on a cold day, we can still be outside with the patio heater or fire pit offering a nice warm haven, but on a warm day we can utilise the play system, garden games or playhouse and get the BBQ going.

We’re looking out at the rain lashing down again, wondering where the summer is.

It’s June and we are considering putting the central heating on to help dry the washing.

The forecast on BBC Radio two this morning said may as well write off the month of June as far as summer’s concerned.

The forecast is mostly rain until the end of the month so hopefully there are some good programmes on TV as there are only so many board games you can play.

Well, fingers crossed for July, it’s not that far away. I heard someone mumbling something about a late Indian summer……..i’ll believe it when I see it.

Take care
