I created this table for John for our Father's Day dinner. I tried to make it look as masculine as possible. And although dh does not hunt, I thought the salad plates with hunt scene would bring masculinity to the table.
Do you agree?
I don't have very many round tablecloths. Big ones are not easy to find so I opened a lot of cabinets before I spotted this zebra print runner.
I bought the placemats from our church garage sale for $1. It was the last hour and they were closing and everything went for $1. I love the texture and they remind me of mats (banig) in the Philippines.
John likes ducks so I used ducks for S&P shakers. He likes birds too so I added them to the centerpiece also. I thought orchids grow in the forest wildly attaching themselves to big trees so I stuck a stalk into a hunt scene tankard.
I borrowed the 2 candlesticks holder from the foyer. I bought this pair from one of the vendors at the store for $10, I think and I love them. They are very heavy, bronze perhaps,
and very art nouveauey and quite tall.
I used brown (or are they dark amber?) goblets and green wine glasses. They look pretty wild, don't they?
Ferns in the background makes it feel like a swampy forest.
I like how the window is reflected on the cabinet glass in this picture. It looks like a window showing the trees, isn't it?
But of course, I served rice! We eat it everyday. I also grilled some tuna steaks, one of John's favorite food.
And that concludes our Father's Day dinner!
