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!

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!

Musings from Kim K. said...

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.

Susie said...

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

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

# 3 ! :)

Cranberry Morning said...

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

Jane, Naples, Florida said...

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

Katie Mansfield said...

No Boos for Blues. #2. I love the mustaches. Have a great weekend.

Ron said...

MAD for Navy plaid! I'm a sucker for plaid, y'all! xo

Penny @ Penny's Vintage Home said...

#2 is my favorite!

Patty Patterson said...

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.

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

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

Anonymous said...

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,

Amy at Ms. Toody Goo Shoes said...

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? :)

♥ Sonny ♥ said...

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

Vee said...

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

Sylvia said...

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

Fairhope Supply Co. said...

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

Something Nice and Pretty said...

I pick the navy plaid, love the napkin rings!

Okio B Designs said...

So hard to choose one! I love the first two!

Cozy Little House said...

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

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

Tete said...

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

Teresa said...

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.

FABBY'S LIVING said...

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.
FABBY

Nellie said...

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

20 North Ora said...

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

Judy

Donna said...

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!!

camp and cottage living said...

This was hard!
But I'll say #6.

Deborah Montgomery said...

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!

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

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? ;)

Kelly said...

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

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

#6. Hope you guys have a great weekend!

Beth said...

I choose # 6. Gorgeous!

Consider It All Joy said...

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!!

cards4ubylouise and other treasures said...

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!!!!

Kim M said...

#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!

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

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

Little Miss Maggie said...

Definitely No 2. Love the pale blues.

Blessed Serendipity said...

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

xo Danielle

Anonymous said...

I like the very first one in bright yellow!

Mindy said...

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

Simply LKJ said...

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

Ruth Kelly said...

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.

Debbie Harris said...

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.

Junkchiccottage said...

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.
Kris

Missy George said...

3?? 4??? I guess 3 :)

Dee D said...

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... :)

Kelly said...

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

Pat Edwards said...

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.........

bj said...

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

Jen Vandervoort said...

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

Gina said...

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

Teresa@magazineyourhome said...

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

Renee said...

#3. I love plaid.

Pondside said...

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

Jackie said...

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

Nancy's Notes said...

Yellow Bow Tie!!
xo

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

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!...

White Lace and Promises said...

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