Father's Day 2011

It is time to get ready for Tablescape Thursday over at Between Naps on the Porch. Please visit all the participants to see their beautiful creations.

This the table I had set up for Father's Day last Sunday. We had my parents and brother over again to celebrate Father's Day.  We purchased ribs and chicken already made.  My dad is crazy about ribs.  We also purchased the lemon cake.  He seemed very happy with the meal.  
I had been thinking about this table since I received the purple glasses. My dad normally does not use the napkin or the glass so he didn't have a purple one.  The size is perfect for my mom to hold. The tablecloth and two matching napkins were a clearance purchase at Dillard's. Luckily the other napkins blend well.  So when I was thinking of which napkin rings to use, I was afraid of it being to girly for my dad because the only matching rings in which I had more that four were butterflies and bows. I was going to forget about them until I found these purple ones that I purchased at estate sale last year.

 These salt and pepper shakers are specifically for my dad.  He dislikes the Fiesta ones because he can't tell the difference between the salt and the pepper no matter how many times I try to explain it. They came from one of my friend's who was cleaning out her dishes.

I moved some dishes around when it was time to eat since the table was crowded. I apologize for the dark pictures as I was trying to take them with natural light.  I really need to look into a new camera.

Fiesta colors: Plum, Heather, Yellow, Sunflower and Cinnabar
