I combined several of my recent thrift finds to create the most laid-back Father’s Day table ever.
I earmarked these oval restaurant plates and napkins for Father’s Day as soon as I saw them.
I thought the plates would look best on rectangle placemats to mimic their long, narrow shape, but I didn’t have any placemats in the right color. I used some round, wicker chargers I had and they worked fine.
Trader Joe’s had hydrangeas with just a little blue left in them.
I remembered Ashli @ Mini Manor’s post about using a vase with a wide base to easily angle flower stems, so I used the base of this recently thrifted, lidded glass jar on the left and it worked like a charm. Thank you, Ashli!.
I like pretty tables, but I don’t taking a lot of time to put them together. Having to fuss over a table stresses me out and defeats the relaxed, comfortable entertaining vibe I’m going for.
I’ve found that white dishes, clear glass, and a single kind of flower make putting together a relaxed, pretty table easy almost every time.
And since we’re talking about Father’s Day. Here are the two goofy kids who are lucky to have my husband for a Dad.
I hope you had a wonderful Father’s Day. How did you celebrate?Creating This Life, where we talk about home, books, travel, and other life stuff.
