With Father’s Day around the corner, I challenged myself to create a more masculine table setting so I chose colors that reminded me of a golf course because that is where my Dad likes to spend Father’s Day–playing golf!full view 1

l coordinated these three patterns from Hen House Linens-“linked up ivy” for the tablecloth and fabric napkin rings, “gracious chocolate” for the table runner, and “bold stripe chocolate” for the dinner napkins. 








I love matching these bold patterns with stripes!

For the centerpiece, I chose a simple arrangement of white peonies in a green depression glass vase and Fenton Silvercrest milk glass candlesticks-all of which I found years back at Grand Bazaar Antiques in Mendham, NJ.

The china pattern is Lenox Opal Innocence and the silver belonged to my husband’s grandmother and is Wallace Windsor Rose (1942).
