Father’s Day Party Ideas: Tablescape

My husband loves to fish, and loves the outdoors, so that became my inspiration for creating a dining table for him. I think personalizing the table to your man is the best way to go for this holiday. If he’s not in the outdoors you can create a sports themed table, or if he loves to read, why not use all those books to create a dramatic centerpiece? So for starters, my first project was the fishing pole centerpiece, which is SO easy!

If your guy is into the outdoors, this fishing pole centerpiece is perfect for a Father's Day tablescape.

Let your kids help make this one. I cut fish out, and attached it to some extra twine I had. Then I found some twigs outside, and tied the twine to it. Finally, stick them in a mason jar filled with some rocks, and you have a super affordable and CUTE centerpiece!

Add rocks to your mason jar, and use a twig to attach your twine and fish - and you have a fishing pole that is just right for a centerpiece.

You can cut your fish out of solid color card stock, or let your kids decorate the fish!

You can even let your kids color the fish, or write their names on them! I used logs from outside to give the table some height, and layered moss around it, to really bring the outdoors in.

I layered plaid fabric on the table to give it a really manly feel, and then added pops of color with the yellow sunflowers. As I mentioned in the summer backyard party decorating ideas post, my dad is a sunflower geneticist, so naturally these flowers are a perfect addition for Father’s Day.

Old comics make great placemats for your Father's Day tablescape.

My place mats were a super easy, and last minute thought. I love to layer patterns, and textures, and as I was looking the through the morning paper it hit me. Comics! My husband always reads them, so I cut them the size of place mats, and used a white plate to offset all the busyness of the pattern.

Succulents are perfect for creating place card holders.

I saw these cute little succulents at the store, and new I had to use them to create some sort of place card.

When planning your table try to utilize what you have, and then buy the little things to add to it. My moss rocks, plates, mustache cup, and moss were all found at dollar store, which brought my total table to the cost of $13! Personally, I was very happy with that.
