With the Fourth of July right around the corner, we decided to come up with some ideas to make your outdoor space as functional as possible for your celebration. Despite the heat, it is always fun to grill a few hamburgers, take a swim, and watch fireworks at the end of the day.

So, how do you make sure your guests are comfortable, while maximizing your backyard potential?

Have an outdoor dining area. This may seem like a no brainer, but people love to sit across from one another while having a place to graze and chat. Here are a few options available at Turners:

To add an instant ambiance, go with this fire pit table that has a mini flame that will light up your area while enjoying those freshly grilled hamburgers outside. Shelves behind a cabinet provide extra storage (perfect for hiding the extra chips!).

Or you can stick with a classic outdoor dining table and chairs that make for a comfortable pit stop after a dip in the pool.

Create a conversation area with four comfortable chairs around a fire pit. It’s never too hot for some smores, right?

Imagine your July 4th party with a stocked cooler! This solid wood cooler is the perfect addition to any backyard shindig.

We hope this gave you some ideas on how to make the best outdoor space possible! All of these items are available at Turner’s Fine Furniture!
