Beer and Barbecue Tablescape

Father’s Day is a great time to pull out your picnic basket and set an inviting table for Dad.  It’s easy, it's inviting and most of all Dad will love the special attention, leaving him bright memories in his heart.

I knew our menu was going to involve grilled steak and chicken, with that I decided to go with a “Beer and Barbecue” theme.  

The black and white tablecloth was the right backdrop for the table, pairing nicely with the black and the white polkadot salad plates.  I added two white table runners to make it look like designated place settings.  The table needed a pop of colour, so the red roses worked nicely.  

My own Father and my husband are huge soccer fans, so the Croatian soccer jersey causally draped over the chair was the right amount of detail without going over board on the checkers.  And finally trophies for a playful touch.
