PICK YOUR FAVORITE - Father's Day Table

How often do we set the table with the
MEN IN OUR LIVES
in mind?

Me?
Not often!
For me it is about making the table PRETTY.
MyHero?  Not so much into pretty
(unless it looks like a woman-lol-
Hey-he might be OLD but he is NOT DEAD YET)

Anyway,
I thought it would be fun to choose 
a masculine setting for
FATHER'S DAY!

You get to choose- the table and the male
you would like sitting there with you---
hubby, son, dad, best friend, 
neighbor, mailman, undertaker--
you get the idea---your choice.

So---off we go~

#1
Tie A Yellow Bow
(into a napkin)

#2-
NO BOOS FOR BLUES
and no booze for Daddy either

#3
MAD FOR NAVY PLAID
Or just MAD period cuz they forgot Dad's spoon...

#4
NOT TEED OFF YET
for the hacker who can't wait to leave the table and go golfing

#5
NO CRABBY DADS ALLOWED
Crabby Dads will be assigned their own table in the corner

#6
Beachy Bobbers
And I am not even going to make a Boobie joke..

And- LAST but not LEAST
#7
MISTER MUSTACHE
For the man that wishes he could grow facial hair-
Okay- I lied!
That was NOT the last one.
This one is!

#8
Captain Of His Own Destiny
For the Dad that wants to eat with his 50 closest friends.
Please note- this one comes complete with server~
So-There you have it ladies.
Play along if you like...
If you DON'T like we can sit you 
at the corner with CRABBY DAD...
and you know how much fun THAT will be!

Have a great Friday!

  1. No crabby dads allowed over here either! He's outnumbered by 3 daughters and a crabby wife - even the dog is a girl! So I
    am voting for the first -yellow bow tie! - table! What a cute idea!

  2. Since school has let out, Chris has a hammer and a shovel permanently attached to his hands. Our themed table would need to have his garage and gardening clutter all over it. Just kidding, but he is a man with a zillion plans right now. I'm in a beachy mood and so I'm going with #6. Love the blue colors.

  3. Diana, Number 6 , is the one I like the best. Kind of manly, but not too fussy. I would want my Teddy with me. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  4. I like #3 best of all, but please include a bagpiper and kilt-clad companion. What time should I expect you to show up? This IS a giveaway, right?? ;-) LOL

  5. The last one with the server works for me...must come with a cook too!

  8. I like that last one - but since we don't have 50 friends we'd like to buy dinner for let's go with #3. But - why weren't there no paper plate options? Really - someone should come up with a classy way to set a table with paper plates.

  9. I like #6, the beachy bobbers - perfect all summer long!

  10. what a great idea, I think my fav is beachy bobbers, but the effort would be lost on my man, he would never see past the food, if I asked him what the table looked like he would never remember, lol, have a great weekend, lovely lady,

    ReplyDelete
  11. Beach Bobbers without a doubt! The hubs and I met at the beach, so he MIGHT appreciate this table setting! I''d like him sitting there, and my son, too -- there's room for three, right? :)

  12. In love with no.3 tartan plaid gets me every time:) love this feature you do-- so much fun

    ReplyDelete
  13. The final one. The others look as if they might work for teens. Wait. That might be close to the truth.

  14. I pick #3 because "I love it"...it has ROSES! ( but I do like # 1)

    ReplyDelete
  15. #3 wins my vote because I love anything navy blue!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I pick the navy plaid, love the napkin rings!

    ReplyDelete
  17. So hard to choose one! I love the first two!

  18. I like the Beachy Bobbers. But I can't think of a single man I'd want to be sitting there.

  19. I'm going with number 3. so true, so true, about men's taste in decorating as you pointed out.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love number 2 and I pick Johnny Depp or Sean Connery or if they aren't available...Sam Elliot. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love number 3. Simple but pretty. I guess I pick my husband. If he qualifies as he is a dad to 2 furry creatures. Our dogs.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Beautiful ideas and very inspiring my friend! I love the yellow rimmed dishes in the first one... although, the crab one is a fun one for the Summer!
    Happy Father's Day weekend sweet friend.

  23. My hubby would love #4! Since he's the one with whom I would be seated, that will be my pick, though it is a close call between this one and #3. xo Nellie

  24. Love the #1 - so cute with the bow tie! But the golf one is cute also.

  25. I like Beachy Bobbers! The second one is cute, but I'm not into the mustache thing that seems so popular these days! I think you and I would have to fight over who gets to sit closest to Robert Redford, 'cuz he is the one who I would love seated at my table!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. My husband would like the golf one best I think. Cute ideas. You're right, I often set the table girly/romantic. I'm actually not sure he notices either way!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I vote for #4 "Not teed off yet." Love that one! My hubby loves to play golf, so I know he'd like it. And aside from my hubby, I would like to have Nicolas Cage seated next to me. Get right on that, will you? ;)

  28. Hi, first let me say that your photos yesterday of the sunset over the bay made me wish to be there! Just beautiful Diana!!! OK, now down to business I have to go with # 1 , cuz, its soooo bright and cheery! I would add some type of mustache decor that my teens are so into right now! This is sooo fun! I enjoy reading all the comments! Happy weekend , ENJOY!!! <3

  29. Can I choose #2 and #6 and name it No boos for the Beachy Blues? I like them both however, you are so strict on your rules that I will choose only 1 and that will be #6 Beachy Bobbers :) Have a beachy day!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ohoooooo......I think I will go with #1 and invite Arron Rogers....YEP!!! Husband can come too of course. I suspect there would be some greenery for the center piece, so Packer colors would be the decoration...lol...lol....lol..!!!! Can hardly wait for Football season (but then that means winter is coming quick!!!) and I am not sure I saw spring yet, cause summer is next week!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. #8!! You're absolutely right, he doesn't care what the table looks like, but I would LOVE to be served! ;) Happy Father's Day to all your boys!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I like #1 looks great and I would like Rossi, from Criminal Minds with me. LOL
    Have a great one Diana.

  33. Definitely No 2. Love the pale blues.

  34. I don't think most men care what the table decorations look like as long as they are FED but #5 is my favorite.

  35. I like the very first one in bright yellow!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hands down number two, but six is fun, too.

    ReplyDelete
  37. #3 Mad for Navy plaid. Love the color scheme and the cute napkin holders. And, who doesn't love a good masculine plaid???

    ReplyDelete
  38. I like #3 and for my younger brother, no. 4 but frankly, I don't think men care at all. They are interested in tasty food not looks.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I knew I needed to visit you for a good laugh! :) Diana, you crack me up girl!! I just love you. Believe it or not I like the "crabby dad" #5. and if I have to, I will sit in the corner with him should he need company. I wouldn't want him to be all alone, especially on Father's Day. :)
    That table is quite unique.
    Have a beautiful rest of the day.

  40. Oh Diana these are all great but I have to pick the golf table for Terry. So awesome. Hope your hero and your son's all have a wonderful Dad's Day on Sunday. Enjoy.

  41. Oh gosh, it's a tie between the yellow bow and navy plaid. They're both so perfect for Father's Day. Have a wonderful weekend... :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I choose #2 because it looks like the perfect table for a Father's Day breakfast. That's what we always have.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Love the #3 Mad for Navy Plaid..........and red roses that really do complete that masculine tableau! And who thought roses were only for the ladies.........

    ReplyDelete
  44. The golf one would be the one I'd choose 'cause Mr. Sweet looooves golf..:)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Your style of blogging is inimitable, there is only one Nana Diana...and she's a treasure.

  46. I like #3, Mad for Navy Plaid, although I know my husband would prefer #4 with the golf theme.

    ReplyDelete
  47. My hubs would love the Not Teed Off Yet table, he doesn't golf much anymore but he loves to watch it.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I like that yellow bow tie!...........though I think The Great Dane might choose the lunch with his 50 closest friends on a yacht!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love the Navy plaid...but I think it's because of those gorgeous roses as the center piece. Does that count? :))
    Hugs to you,
    Jackie

  50. Definitely number three for me!....and I know my hubby would pick that one too....hmmm who should sit by me other than my hubby....I would have my dad sit by me...but I know he would be there in spirit!...

    ReplyDelete
  51. Me, the bright beach table and my husband, the golf! Both bright and beautiful!
