Creating A Fun Father's Day Tablescape

Creating a Father’s day table that isn’t too frilly or girly can be a challenge. So, I’m sharing a simple set up that any dad will love. This table setting is so inexpensive and really cost next to nothing since I used items I already had from our home. I’ve also included a fun napkin fold demo to add that special touch for dad.

To make this fun table I wanted a warm, woodsy, masculine feel and started with utilizing a lot of texture.  for the center of the table I started with a macrame table runner in a neutral creamy color. Then I gathered items from around the house that are related to hobbies my husband enjoys. We have some wonderful vintage items given to us as keepsakes that worked out great for this theme.
I elevated the center with a footed wooden stand and added an antique fishing basket. Then anchored an old fishing net next to it. Wooden candle sticks of various shapes and sizes helped to bring in the wood tones to the table. I used golf balls to add some pops of white to the arrangement . Of course I had to add the “hole in one” trophy !
Then to anchor everything and bring another natural element to the look, I used some fern leaves and tucked them around to soften the look a bit.

For the place setting, I layered a burlap place mat, a black charger and our everyday neutral plates to tie in with the table runner. This super easy napkin fold added a fun touch to the whole look. Heres how to make it;
Start with a 20 x 20 fabric napkin of any print (stripes, checks and paisley are great for a men’s tie look) These are from Target Hearth and Hand collection. Then fold it in half lengthwise, then again in half. Be sure the folded opening is at the top as shown.

Turn it on the diagonal and fold over the left corner once, and then once again to create the first side of the tie as shown.

Then, repeat with the other side and it will take on the shape of the tie.

Next, hold it tightly and flip it over so the point is at the top.

Then, carefully open the top part of the point to fold it over like a cuff as you hold the folded part of the napkin.

To add a bit more pop of green, I anchored the tie on a mini boxwood wreath. Such a fun and easy way to add a masculine touch to the whole look !

So there is it, easy peasy and a nice, special way to honor dad with the things he loves. You can still create a pretty table even if it isn’t “girly”. By using various textures & heights you can create an eye catching centerpiece and also interest to start table conversations win/win 🙂
Hope you enjoyed this and if you have any questions on the napkin folding, please let me know. Feel free to share and pin this table all you want. As always, thanks for following along.

Happy Decorating
