Hi friends! Father’s Day is being celebrated a little early around here so I am sharing our new Sophisticated Father’s Day Table with Herb Centerpieces that I created for my sweet Dad.
My parents are coming to visit from Dallas next week so I am hosting a dinner for my dad while they are here since we won’t be able to be together on June 20th.
Whether it be a Father’s Day, a birthday, a retirement, or other special occasion, there are times throughout the year that you might want to celebrate a special man in your life. I think it is nice to set a table accordingly.
For Father’s Day, I like to create a masculine look on our table. Sometimes, that can be challenging for folks. I have lots of ideas for you in this post today.
How to create a Sophisticated Father’s Day Table with Herb Centerpieces
When putting one together, these are the words that come to mind to consider when making your selections would be…tailored, casual, classic, neutral, simple, sleek, and maybe even rustic.
With regard to the colors to feature, I would consider using, blues, greens, browns or blacks, or just simple neutral tones. No pinks, that’s for sure! 😉
For this table setting, I am so excited to feature the new (and very popular line) Halo Collection by Denby Pottery. All of the words I used above to describe the look for a table you might want to create for a special guy in your life are incorporated in their Halo Collection.
The two tones of glaze combine to create a dramatic effect that offers a captivating glaze reaction. It is modern and artful with so many natural touches that sets it apart.
When I entertain our family or guests, I typically serve a multiple-course meal so I was able to use several of their pieces to set the table.
The Place Settings for this Sophisticated Father’s Day Table with Herb Centerpieces
For the place settings, I started with the main dinner plate and built around it. It was important to me to highlight the golden brown trim that goes around the white portion of the plate. Hence, the choice to use the sliced wood platters as “chargers”.
Plus, I love the rustic feel of them which helps keep the tablescape somewhat casual, but still special. I thought placing them on an angle provided a nice offset and allowed for a unique way to place the napkins on an angle as well.
The pattern and sage green tones of the napkins really added a nice neutral complement to the seafoam blue/green tones in the bowls and coupe plates. Plus, my new soft black woven placemats helped coordinate the blackish rim of the dinner plates and the small coupe plates.
The soup/salad bowl looks amazing with the dinner plate! I will serve the first course in them. I am not sharing the menu because I want there to be some surprise element for my father since he reads all of my posts. 😊
I am in love with coupe plates in this collection. For this place setting, I am using the medium coupe plate (more like a salad plate size) to set to the left of the place setting for the dessert course. The small couple plate (an appetizer/butter plate size) is on top to serve as the bread and butter plate for the main course.
For the flatware, my twig flatware added to the rustic feel that the wood platters contributed to the table. Plus, they are very complimentary on our reclaimed wood dining room table.
For the stemware, my goal was to coordinate with the color tones of the plates. Do you ever see me NOT mix up my glassware on a table?! If you know…you know!
SHOP the LOOK here…
For a masculine centerpiece, I typically stay away from using flowers. I usually stick to just greenery of some kind or some kind of rustic element. Herbs were perfect!
Some family facts: My hubby is a fairly casual person, but my dad is usually a bit more formal in a way. He is always rocking his outfits and is quite stylish! Also, because of my mother’s talents in the kitchen on a table, he really enjoys a beautifully set table. This is customary in their home as it is in mine. Wondering where I got it?! Now you know!
For this centerpiece, I pre-made these Simple Herb Garden Centerpieces with the intention that I would use them on this table. I used simple and sleek wood containers to fit with the style of the table I was planning.
To finish off the look, I bought these rustic glass hurricanes/lanterns to feature some simple candlelight without it being too formal (they are linked above).
I think my dad will really enjoy it (and, my mom certainly will). He/they follow me and read every single post so, unfortunately, he will be getting a sneak peek.
I hope that enjoyed seeing some of the Halo Collection from Denby Pottery. I can assure you that will be seeing more of it on my tables! I also hope you will be able to spend time with your father this Father’s Day. I won’t be able to but I will be able to be home to celebrate the father of our children!
