We’re still a couple of months from Summer here in Seattle, but as soon as I see the first glimmer of sun and the temp goes above 60, we want to eat outside- even if we have to wear our coats. So today I’m rounding up some stylish and affordable outdoor dining sets for you. Picnic tables are awesome because they tend to be more affordable than other outdoor dining options, they’re compact, and you can usually squeeze more butts (especially kids) onto benches than individual chairs. You can also add two chairs at the ends of many (but not all) of these tables, or use a bench on just one side. Please note: unless otherwise noted, I have not actually used these pieces myself, so please read reviews!
For the purpose of this post, we’re going to define a picnic table as a table with two long benches, either attached or not. If you’re interested in a set with chairs, check out my Outdoor Dining Sets Roundup, coming soon!
First, the traditional picnic tables…

Picnic Tables for Kids
I got this cute unfinished wood Merry Garden Kids’ Picnic Table for some friends a few years ago, and it’s still going strong! I did spray paint it before use.
This Costzon Kids Picnic Table is also unfinished, but it comes with cute bench pads.
