For lightweight and low-maintenance outdoor seating, plastic picnic tables are an ideal choice. Select a simple vinyl setup for casual backyard dining, or bring a folding picnic table that declares your favorite football team to your next sporting event.
Plastic Picnic Table Features
All outdoor picnic tables are designed to be weather- and rust-resistant, so they’re a stress-free solution to outdoor seating. Consider the following features:
● Shape and Size. A round picnic table takes up minimal space while allowing for flexible seating—a 44-inch round table seats up to six adults. For maximum surface space, consider a square or rectangular picnic table, which can fit between four and six people. Choose a smaller version for kids—you can use it for outdoor dining or for arts and crafts in the playroom.
● Umbrella Hole. A picnic table with an umbrella hole is ideal if you’ll be dining in an open yard with lots of direct sunlight. These tables are designed to hold any standard patio umbrella.
● Benches. Many tables come with attached picnic benches. With a folding table, benches swing in and out, so they’re ideal for tight spaces.
● Style. A colorful yellow or red picnic table can serve as a cheery focal point in your backyard, while neutral colors like brown will blend in. Choose one with a sports logo on it for a great addition to your tailgating party.
Collapsible Picnic Tables
For outdoor dining on the go, consider a portable picnic table. Unlike heavy wooden and metal picnic tables, folding plastic picnic tables are flexible and compact. The legs and seats are hinged and fold into the table when collapsed. Most have a durable and lightweight aluminum picnic table frame. They’re perfect for traveling and fit easily in a car trunk.
Folding tables can also be stored away with ease. Use one as a kid’s table or as back-up outdoor seating for a large group gathering.
