Father’s Day is rolling around pretty quickly. Even though my Father passed about 10 years ago, but we still honor him on his birthday and on Father’s Day. I created this tables cape with my Dad in mind.
My Father was born in Illinois, but he was a Texan at heart! He and my Mother moved to Texas in the mid 50’s and he never wanted to leave! Since my Father was in the Army, he did move (many times) but somehow he kept getting stationed in Texas. To my Father, that meant he was supposed to retire in Texas. That is exactly what he did and he never looked back.
My Dad loved to grill, so I thought I would set the table in front of the grill. I know he would have loved sitting out here, grilling and having a beer (or two).
This is a pretty simple setting. I used burlap as a tablecloth. The place mat is one that I made (instructions to make it will be posted later this week!). I love the denim pocket that can be used for the napkin or for the silverware.
I got lucky and found the plate at Goodwill! I love shopping there for dishes. The dinnerwareis from Fiesta. We often use this silverware when we go on picnics or camping! I love the color of it and the easy clean.
This hat was one of my Father’s favorite possessions. It is a Charlie 1 Horse that was purchased while on vacation in Colorado. He wore it almost every time he left the house. I am lucky enough to have it in my possession. If you hear thunder rumbling as you read this, it is because I have set his hat down on the rim – any good cowboy knows that is the wrong way to set a hat down! You always, I repeat always, set it on it’s crown.
How will you celebrate Father’s Day?
Here are a couple recipes I know my Father would have loved:
Peanut Butter White Chocolate Chip Cookies – That man loved Peanut Butter AND Cookies!
