Garden igloos rentals are extremely popular this time of year at posh restaurants, bars, and hotels.
These establishments offer patrons a way to enjoy a few cocktails in an outdoor picturesque setting regardless of the temperature or weather.
Our love affair with a dome igloo began after renting one for two hours at the Next Whisky Bar located at the iconic Watergate Hotel in Washington, DC.
With the cost of renting one, which included a minimum amount required to spend on drinks, I realized we practically paid for one!
We were determined to have our very own igloo across town in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of DC.
After research, measuring our outdoor space, we purchased the Garden Dome Igloo online and the rest of winter was history.
The Garden Dome Igloo is a perfect place to host an outdoor gathering and it is a perfect space for children to play while getting fresh air.
The Garden Dome Igloo sold on Amazon.com has a diameter of 11′ 9″ and a height of 7′ 2″. The base area is 107 ft². In other words, it takes up a lot of space!
Unfortunately, the item is not currently on Amazon Prime; therefore, delivery was between 2-3 weeks. Although it was in a compacted medium size box, it did take two of us to move it to its desired location due to the weight.
For furniture, we had a Corvus Melrose 8-piece brown wicket set that was perfect! The set consisted of three oversized armless chairs, two club chairs, and one ottoman and there was plenty of room for 8 guests.
To heat the igloo, we used a small electrical heater. Once we secured the igloo for windy days, we were truly set for the winter.
Last year, we set up our garden igloo in our front yard of our home in DC. This year, we set it up on our backyard patio deck in Williamsburg, VA.
To furnish the Garden Dome Igloo in Williamsburg, we purchased similar used wicker furniture from Facebook Market.
You can get the same posh look and save money shopping at Big Lots, T.J. Maxx, Ross or Marshalls!
I love our garden igloo so much I left my first product review on Amazon.com.
For my family, it is an igloo adventure each night regardless of the temperature or weather!
