With that in mind, I did a practice run of the tablescape for the Father's Day meal I am hoping to host next weekend. Weather permitting, we will be eating in our backyard.
Although our kids won't be able to make it home to celebrate with their dad this year, I still want to make the day special for him.
Mr. Delight's summer time hobby is riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle which I thought was the perfect theme for the Father's Day table.
Inspiration began with this wonderful model of Mr. D's bike, (Road King Classic) which a good friend gave him.
I placed it on a round mirror and put a cloche over it to create a centerpiece.
An orange Harley bandana was draped over a pedestal cake plate which served as a platform for the cloche.
Once the centerpiece was designed, I got to work on the rest of the table. I placed these white candles on chrome-look-alike silver candleholders however, a strong breeze kept blowing them out so you'll notice in later pics, I changed them for some mercury glass votive holders.
On one side of the cloche, a mirrored tray holds a pair of HD leather gloves, a candle and some black sunglasses.
On the other side, the mirror tray holds an old beanie helmet of Mr. D's.
Some Harley Davidson logos were copied off the 'net, printed and cut out to help create these perfectly themed dishes. I taped them to these orange/white salad plates just for décor purposes. I may place a small clear plate over top depending on the menu I come up with.
Glassware was a given with these HD glasses Mr. D has had for quite awhile now.
Orange placemats on a black tablecloth along with the fois bois chargers add to the HD and masculine look of the table.
I placed menu cards from a previous HD dinner beside the plates as a sample of what I might do for the actual Father's Day meal.
The table is set for four and since our kids can't make it home, we will be inviting another couple over to help us celebrate Father's Day.
After dinner, I hope the weather is nice enough to move over to this area.
Mr. D can put his feet up and relax in this Adirondack chair decked out with a Harley Davidson throw.
A glass of his favourite beer will no doubt hit the spot once poured into this HD beer glass.
He can then share some pictures and stories with us from this Harley Davidson book.
Since he was the one that recently painted this chair and footstool for me, he deserves some R&R in it!
I'm looking forward to Father's Day this Sunday and am glad I have my tablescape planned out. Have you given any thought as to what you are going to do on this special day?
