Out is In: Pottery Barn’s New Outdoor Tablescape for the Rainy Season

TableLove by Pinky, together with Pottery Barn, debut fun and fresh finds to bring the outdoor experience into your dining tablescapes.

The rainy season is definitely here, but even so, you can enjoy a fun “outdoor” celebration… indoors! In this article, we at TableLove by Pinky—together with Pottery Barn—will show you how to bring a fun and fresh alfresco feel to indoor dining through this outdoor-themed tablescape.

From Outdoor to Indoor

For our base, we used the Modern Farmhouse Extending Dining Table—made of solid Meranti wood. With its modern silhouette, complete with an X-shaped base, this table pairs well with any bench or chair. It even creates the ultimate gathering space for 6 to 8 family members and friends!

The use of mixed materials has been a huge furniture design trend lately, so we chose to pair the dining table with Pottery Barn’s Fenton Dining Chairs. Crafted with an acacia wood frame and handsomely wrapped in woven fine buffalo hide, this is both comfy and a definite eye-catcher.

By now, I’m sure that our followers know that we at TableLove by Pinky absolutely love doing suspended tablescapes.  This is our way of adding height to the table, but making sure that our guests can still see each other and chitchat without having tall candles and flowers blocking their view.

For the suspended tablescape, we took thick and gorgeous Monstera leaves and arranged them into a lush bouquet of cascading greens. Personally, this is what I imagine the outdoors to be—exotic, wild, and full of life.

Fresh and Fun

One thing I’ve observed in my years of tablescaping is that having eclectic choices almost always sparks conversations with guests.  White roses with succulents under a jungle of Monstera leaves might seem an unlikely pair, but the addition of wooden vines and bundles of baby’s breath in Sea Green Frosted Glass Vases creates flow and harmonizes all these elements together. And for added light and dimension, we used Pottery Barn’s bestselling Flameless Candles on top of Booker Bronze Pillar Holders. 

To give the centerpiece that certain oomph of outdoor freshness, we incorporated fresh oranges—both whole and sliced into the tablescape. The smell of citrus is reminiscent of being at a backyard pool party, plus, it satisfies the olfactory element of the table, while adding an energetic pop of color.

For our dinnerware, we thought that the Chambray Tile Melamine Dinnerware would be perfect for this. Yes, you read that right. These plates are made of melamine plastic—perfect for both indoor, outdoor, and definitely party-proof. I’d like to emphasize that these do not, at all, look like they’re made of plastic. In fact, when I first saw these, I thought they were made of stoneware or ceramic gave the volume and quality.

Under the layered dinnerware, I carefully placed Linen Hemstitch Napkins and Mori Coil Jute Placemats, which are made of 100% natural jute, which add organic texture to the setting. 

To complete the table, we used my new favorite Drinkware Collection—the Happy Hour Acrylic Drinkware. These outdoor “glasses” are made of molded Tritan—an ultra-durable material that is both crack and warp-resistant. Available in short, tall drinking glasses, and wine glasses, these make happy hour even happier.

Apart from getting design ideas from our setup, we at TableLove by Pinky hope that today’s tablescape inspires our followers to power through life’s rainy seasons. Just like tablescaping, we almost always start with chaos before ending with a masterpiece.
