Breakfast Television - Outdoor Entertaining: Dining Setting

Creating an inviting table setting is an important part of establishing a welcoming atmosphere when entertaining guests. Especially if it is taking place outside - with all the other elements around you, you want to make sure your table stands out!

Luckily for us, we have some amazing Canadian designers that can help us pull the look together.

One of my favourites is Tomnuk. They have became a staple in my house when it comes to entertaining. Some of my new favourites are their trivets/trays and their salt and pepper shakers. 


The trivet/trays are so great because they are so versatile. As a trivet, they guard your table from hot pots and/or trays, and as a tray they provide a beautiful way to display food. 


I also love Tomnuk's new salt and pepper shakers. These beauties are made out of solid wood, with a threaded brass plug. I just love the way they make a table look! 


Now, we all know that making your guests comfortable is a priority when hosting. We don't want people fidgeting in their seats! Luckily for us, Ikea has some wonderful, comfortable options specifically designed for outdoor entertaining. This morning, we featured their "TARNO" line:



To cosy it up a bit, I threw Ikea's "RENS" sheepskin on each of the seats. 


To give the table some colour, I went with my beloved Pehr. If you've been following me for a while, you know how much I love these Canadian designers. For this morning, we went with their "Slubby" tea towels. They are so soft! 


Our centrepiece was the "BORRBY" lanterns from Ikea. They fit wonderfully with the outdoor atmosphere.



We then topped it all off with another find from Ikea, the "SKYN" serving bowl. They were the perfect size for some Cowboy Caviar. 


And when you put it all together you get an intimate and inviting dinner party!
