This look is super easy and fun to pick up one of dads favorite hobby. I just used his current golf equipment. However if you plan to give any golf items as a gift and just display it on the table.
For the place setting I used a basic jute placemat and a black charger with our everyday dinner plate. Then using a check napkin I folded it like a men’s necktie. A mini wreath was the perfect way to set a golfball on the placesetting… aka hole in one!
For the centerpiece I used some vintage books for height and placed a small topiary for a touch of “greens” and then scattered a few golf t’s. Then I laid 2 golf clubs in a criss cross pattern and set a golf cap ( a gift) in the center to finish it off.
I love the casual feel of the black and white against the woods and the pop of greenery made it feel fresh and gave that golf course feel.

This theme is a great generic look for any event really. Layers of wood beginning with the DIY placemat boards, olive greens and the pop of mustard create a fresh summer feel without the frills.
For the place settings, I started with the homemade wooden placemat. My husband cut these from scrap wood then used his plumbers torch to burn the edges and create the monogram B. Then I layered some square melamine plates to continue the sharp square edges. Then I placed a mini cutting board (perfect for serving a little appetizer or dessert on. Finally I added a pop of rich mustard and used these cute olive bush napkin rings from Hobby Lobby
I love how the deep greens and brown olives look against the bright mustard. Its such a nice earthy look just like a bright summer day!
The centerpiece is super simple just using wooden vases filled with beautiful olive branches. The perfect touch of greenery to tie it all in together.
So which one is your favorite ? Whatever you chose to do you can incorporate these ideas into your own fun table that will make dad feel super special. Serve him his favorite food and a super cool dessert and I bet he will love it. I hope you were inspired by the simple and unique fathers day table ideas!
