Father's Day Tablescape

Friday, June 18, 2021


Happy Friday, My Lovelies! 

Father's Day is this weekend, and unfortunately we will not be able to go to the lake as the rain from the tropical depression is on its way.  So I decided to surprise Mr. Sketchy Reader with a fun breakfast room tablescape for Father's Day Brunch.   :D

The theme is "Lake Fun."

Barbeque Shrimp is on the menu, so little dishes are needed for the shells.

Duck napkin rings

Placemats are beach umbrellas.  We have beach umbrellas around our pool, and there is a beach at our marina.

Silverware will be in a container on the counter where we'll serve ourselves.

Simple centerpiece
There are pretty ferns around the lake, and the yellow roses represent the sun.

I'm hoping the roses will open-up a little.


Everything on the table is MacKenzie-Childs except:

Placemats and napkins:  Anthropologie
Iced tea glasses:  Neiman Marcus
Duck napkin rings:  Vintage
Fern:  Leaf 'n Petal
Roses:  Dorothy McDaniels

Coming Soon:

Do you have any plans for Father's Day?  

Until next time...

  1. What a very special table setting for Father's Day. I love absolutely everything. The placemats are adorable and the napkins are just gorgeous! Beautiful how all the MC pieces play with the Anthro linens. Maiden hair ferns are very special for me and I love how pretty they are with your yellow roses representing the sun. Sorry you'll miss the lake this weekend but I'm sure your weekend with be very special......
