It’s clear from Scott and Sabrina McGillivray’s new home that this family knows how to entertain! From the perfectly situated in-law suite, to the welcoming outdoor space, this home is all about family and friends coming together. And for the family that loves to entertain, what room could be more important than the dining room? Scott and Sabrina went to great lengths to make it functional for their family, adding a butler’s pantry for extra storage and ease during big dinner parties, plus an awesome surprise for post-dinner fun! Read on to see the beautiful spaces Scott and Sabrina created for entertaining!

No, this isn’t the dining room, and it’s not the kitchen either. This jaw-dropping space is the serving suite, where Sabrina and Scott can store formal dinnerware behind beautiful glass cabinets and organize their wine collection in not one, but two wine fridges. Scott also made the wise choice to add in a second dishwasher in the suite, which will be a godsend during big parties with epic amounts of dirty dishes!
The Dining Room
Like any good host, Scott and Sabrina know that the comfort of your dining room is just as important as the food on your dining room table! They carefully walked the line between full-on formal and casual, to create a space that was beautiful, while still relaxed. A simple palette of soft grey and white gives the room a modern edge, but decorative prints on the armchairs and statement lighting add a playful character to the room.
A Modern Mix
Plush velvet chairs are a key component of this cozy dining room. Guests can sink into their chairs and relax for the evening, while the one and only Scott McGillivray serves dinner!
And now, the pièce de résistance! The McGillivray’s movie theatre! When dinner wraps up, and guests aren’t quite ready to leave, what could be cooler than inviting friends and family down for a flick? This seven-seat theatre has all the bells and whistles: huge screen, surround sound, cozy loungers and…wait for it…
The Candy Bar
…the most impressive candy bar we’ve ever seen! Now this is how you impress your guests.
Entertaining at the McGillivrays
There’s no doubt about it, when it comes to entertaining, the McGillivray’s have it down pat. From little host helpers like an expertly designed serving suite, to a home theatre that’ll impress the socks off any guest, this house is party central!
