Creating the Perfect Kitchen Tabletop
Whether you're gearing up for a casual family feast or adding an air of elegance to a dinner party, finding the right tableware to suit every occasion is essential. At Pottery Barn Canada, discover what elements you want to comprise your ideal kitchen tabletop, from versatile dinnerware sets to one-of-a-kind serving bowls to vibrant textured table linens. Think about what materials and styles you want to feature as you dive into the world of table settings.
Durable porcelain and stoneware are optimal choices when you want something that can effortlessly transition from casual mealtime to refined dining on the same kitchen tabletop. Thanks to its scratch- and shatter-resistant design, melamine is ideal for outdoor dining and entertaining. Acrylic drinkware is also great for outdoor use, and it won't crack or warp. From shiny stainless steel flatware to recycled sea glass wine glasses, discover what other materials can do for you and your place setting.
Dinnerware features all the essentials that you'll use to serve your mains, sides, salads and desserts. This includes dinner plates, bowls and appetizer/salad plates. Dinnerware pieces come in sets of like pieces, such as a four-piece bowl set. They also come in a group of assorted items, such as a 16-piece dinnerware set that includes four each dinner plate, bowl, salad plate and mug to seamlessly round out your table setting.
Serveware includes serving bowls, platters, serving trays, condiment bowls and more. When it comes to serving trays and platters, choose from classic shapes like oval, square or rectangle. Or add visual interest to your tabletop with a whale-shaped platter or a beaded platter. Elevate your charcuterie game with one of our handcrafted wood cheese boards. Show off your cake or pie with a sleek stoneware cake stand.
Table linens are a way to infuse creative flair on your tabletop. They can also help bring everything together. Table linens include runners, tablecloths, napkins and placemats. Tablecloths cover all or most of your kitchen tabletop, while a runner is typically placed down the centre of your table. It makes a decorative base from which to add your favourite candles, greenery and other centrepieces. Napkins and placemats help to ground a place setting. Table linens come in a variety of styles from embroidered pieces to floral prints to stripes to solid shades and more.
Drinkware & Barware
No meal would be complete without drinkware. Whether you're serving water in drinking glasses, pouring after-dinner coffee or tea into a mug or concocting the perfect cocktail, we have a range of options for you to choose from when it comes to pairing the right beverage with the right drinkware. When you're hosting backyard soirees, keep the drinks cold with a party bucket. Don't forget to include coasters to keep your surfaces free from condensation and water stains. Let your inner mixologist out with helpful tools such as a cocktail shaker, bar tool set or decanter.
Silverware, otherwise known as flatware, includes common utensils such as spoons, forks and knives. Silverware also includes pieces such as cheese knives and serving utensils. Our cutlery comes in sets and each set features unique touches. Explore choices like bamboo-inspired stainless steel flatware or the modern flair of our distressed blackened flatware. Get ready for outdoor gatherings by placing your utensils in a handwoven caddy, complete with built-in handle for carrying convenience.
