The sun is calling and here we come, Patio. Time to dress you up right so we can chillax and do what we love to do most: entertain. There’s no doubt about it—to dine, drink and party right, we need just the right equipment. We’re heading out to dust off the old BBQ and patio sets and spring forward in style, and then we’re shopping for outdoor decor.
Our beloved Target may have left Canada, but lucky for us, we’ve found another home store for all of your outdoor entertaining needs.
We’ve already showed you how to transform your backyard into an oasis, and now our friends at Real Canadian Superstore have introduced their 2015 Spring and Summer outdoor collections, guaranteed to make your patio party central. With unique and affordable products from brands such as PC and Tera Gear, you’ll find those items you’ve been saving for—barbeques and patio sets, tabletop and serveware.
And they’re all so stylish, they double as decor. You’ll also stumble upon some really cool accessories you didn’t even know you needed but now definitely must make yours. We had a hard time choosing, but here are some of our faves. Head to your local store to see the whole collection.
THE BEST BACKYARD BBQ Fire up the grill with Troy, Tera Gear 75K BTU Grill (Propane $499, Natural Gas $549) We all know that the BBQ is the party hub come spring and summer. This stainless steel grill has everything you need including 4 burners under the hood and a side burner. Your whole neighbourhood will smell that nice juicy steak. So get ready to answer the door.
THE COOLEST COOLERS Keep your coolers, beer and cider nice and cold and right nearby with the Tera Gear Cooler Chest ($149) or PC Round Party Tub ($19). This vintage cherry red cooler chest has a double lid for easy access, a built-in bottle opener and spout for easy cleaning. The round party tub will be the hit of the party. It’s got easy to grip rope handles and its spacious size means no guest ever goes thirsty.
THE SWEETEST ACCENTS Serve whatever you’re serving up in the most unique style possible with Tera Gear Wooden Bar Cart ($129) and the Tera Gear Mini Condiment Holder ($12). There’s an array of fun items that are as cute as they are handy.
THE SMARTEST DISHWARE Enjoy eating on fabulous dish collections with bold graphic prints PC Bamboo Fibre Collections ($2.50 – $18) or the PC Floral Serve Ware Collection ($3.50 – $17). These sets are not only gorgeous, but the bamboo is also an environmentally conscious alternative to plastic. They won’t absorb oil or discolour, and they’re both dishwasher-safe and eco-friendly. In fact, when you’re done with them—not that you’d ever want to be—you can green bin them. You heard us. Completely recyclable.
THE COMFIEST CHAIRS Kick back and and lounge with drink in hand on the Tera Gear Muskoka Chair ($99 – shown in Natural; also comes in Red or White) or on the Tera Gear Woven Club Set ($299). You’ll never smash a glass poolside again with the PC Insulated Wine with Straw ($7). What more can a woman ask for of her wine?
THE SOFTEST TOWELS Warm up after a dip with the soft, plush PC Beach Towel ($16). They’re not only a great deal, but they’re amazingly absorbent and hold up great after multiple washings. Choose from a wide range of colours and patterns to suit any mood.
