Pamper Dad on Sunday with a meal prepared just for him. Or, if Dad likes to do the cooking or grilling, set a fabulous table and take care of the clean-up.
The beauty of setting a memorable table is you don’t have to match it to the interior decor of the house. Chose a theme and run with it. For Father’s Day earth tones and rustic elements are perfect for feeding the men in your life.
I always look for vintage dishes whenever I shop at Goodwill. These rust and green cat-tail plates are perfect for the out-doorman.
This table setting is successful because of the abundance of textures, layers and coordinating colors.
Wood salad bowls are heavy and manly. Set it off to the side so you don’t cover-up the design.
Green and blue stoneware plates serve as chargers while the gold goblets and clay cups each add a smooth or rough element.
No fancy napkins for Dad. Pleat (accordion style) a coordinating napkin and tuck in the bowl.
I gathered candles and iron birds to create a centerpiece. Use an old wood box to add height.
Dad will love a meal served at a table set just for him. The best part? You can re-use everything next fall for a harvest dinner. Don’t you just love two-for-one ideas?
