Tablescape Thursday





It is time again for Tablescape Thursday. (I hope!) I posted a table last week, only to realize that there wasn't a TT being held. So, I changed the title and left the post. Be sure to check the links out to Susan's blog at Between Naps on the Porch for her wonderful tablescape this week and links to all those participating in Tablescape Thursday. I had planned a family cookout for Father's Day, but after the unexpected death of a favorite uncle, I decided to wait on that party. However, I actually have two tables since we observed Father's Day and Kathleen hosted her wonderful all White Tablsetting event on Tuesday. You can scroll down my blog to see the White Tablesetting photos and links to all the others. (

I wanted something more manly for DH for Father's Day and since he is an avid golfer, I decided to go with the golf theme. Add to that the fact that he was glued to the tv to watch the US Open all afternoon.

Since it was Father's Day and I was catering to Mr. PD and his urge for BEEF, I planned to link to Foodie Friday and realized it is not this week. For some reason I thought this was a weekly event. I am also linking this to Gollum's Foodie Friday. So be sure to check out all the weekly food photos and recipes on the participants.

I just realized that these pictures aren't the final ones of the table. I took these and then realized that I needed to add some golf tees and balls scattered around.

But, you get the idea.

DHs very manly steak dinner:

Ribeye steak, mushrooms, loaded baked potato, fresh tomatoes, fresh squash, and a couple of his freshly picked jalapeno peppers. Add to that ice tea and he was all set to enjoy his meal...

...eaten off of an orange plastic tray in front of the tv! Afterall, it was his day. He does enjoy the tables, even though he often complains that the plates are too small!

The photos look a little washed out in color on the tablecloth. It is a light tan. The centerpieces are on top of a black and tan placemat that hopefully added a manly look. The two golf items used for the centerpiece featured a lot of dark green and tan. So, I used my newly found green flatware from GW. I couldn't believe that the entire set was there (16 pieces) and they were just dropped in the containers to be sold piece by piece for 25 cents each.

The napkins match the black and tan checked placemat, but were bought at a different time and thrifting excursion. The green candle holders were from Dollar General after Christmas clearance and the glassware was another GW find.

I got a set of 4 each of the tall glass (too small for tea in my opinion), the small sherbet or dessert glasses, and another cocktail looking glass.

The plates, are black hexagon shaped ones from another find. The table cloth is one that I have had for along time.

The squash came from a friend's garden and the steaks were on sale this week at Kroger.
