Sunflowers for a Father's Day Summer Table

Hello sweet friends!

    I started to rearrange the English buffet cause it looked kind of wintery or something, therefore, I thought for a different setting for 'FATHER'S DAY' with a more Summery look to it and I came up with a 'Sunflower Theme,' using my sunflower salad plates as a focal point.

I don't do much seasonal changing, except for some décor here and there, but not as some gorgeous homes I see around blogland, totally decorated for Summer !

With that said; this 'Father's Day' setting is formed with my sunflowers salad plates, paired with green rimmed everyday dinner plates and white chargers on our bare wood, vintage French table.

I also used sunflower napkin rings and napkins, along with natural 'sunflowers' for the centerpiece.

Wishing you all an amazing FATHER'S DAY and a fun SUMMER SEASON 2016.

The tablescape for Summer and Father's Day 2016 is spread here at our breakfast table.

A very simple Father's Day or Summer table setting for a simple lunch or dinner.

I elevated the centerpiece on a white medium cake pedestal.

I freshen up the English buffet with some transferware in blue and red.

It could remain here until I do all my patriotic table setting in July; with red and white flowers, perhaps.

In this photo you see a doily, yes, I had to add it because it was sliding a bit and I was afraid it'll fall with all the plates, lol..

The sideboard vignette for this Summer. 

This buffet is a larger one, where I keep my silver and sterling things, but now it's displaying some blue and white and maybe I will add some red dishes here too; as it will be staying until July, for the 'patriotic month.'

These are natural sunflowers and they're great and big and with a very dark center, just like the plates !

Sunflower napkin ring holding a sunflower napkin too, except it's pink, but I liked it together just the same.
Hubby loves big napkins and these are huge!

I like to see my transferware dishes on the sideboard on a daily basis on top of this plate holder, it makes me happy.

Our breakfast table flanked by the two antique buffets.

Thank you dear friends for your wonderful comments, you always make my day !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.

  3. Bonjour ma chère Fabby,

    Lorsqu'enfin le temps me le permet, je suis heureuse de te rendre visite et d'admirer à chaque fois une nouvelle présentation de table .
    Cette dernière est étonnante et Dame Eté se fait sentir ! J'aime beaucoup tous ces tournesols... ton bouquet et ces magnifiques assiettes !
    Ton buffet également donne une belle transition de printemps - été. La douceur du rose printanier et la puissance des jaunes avec les tournesols... Un très joli mariage.

    Je t'embrasse affectueusement,
    Gros bisous 🌺 🌻

  4. I just adore your sunflowers!!! We have some at home that grow from the bird seed dropping!
    After the 4th of July, I will get out my collection of all things 'sunflower' and decorate the entire house, porch and gazebo!

  5. Hi Fabby, your sunflower plates are adorable. I would love to own some of these :)

    Thanks for sharing at the Wednesday Blog Hop..

  6. Oh my I love your sunflowers! I planted some last year and they done so well so planted some again this year. Was late planting but hoping to see them bloom as pretty as ever. Love the plates Fabby. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  7. Your table is perfect for Father's Day, Fabby! Everybody likes sunflowers because they look so warm and happy. Love your transferware; especially the red/pink. Thank you for sharing and Happy Father's Day to your hubby!


  8. Fabby,
    I l o v e Sunflowers!
    . . .and I l o v e your Sunflower Tablescape for Father's Day, dear friend!
    The two antique buffets are absolutely gorgeous!
    Hurray for the red, white and blue transfer ware and the blue and white with silver, too!
    Summertime is lookin' good in your lovely home!

  9. What a lovely table! Sunflowers are so perky and fun, and paired with your green and white, they have made a beautiful Father's Day table setting.

    For close to 20 years, I had a sunflower-themed kitchen. About 2 years ago, I wanted a change, so I put up a new wallpaper border and took down all my sunflower decor. What an idiot I was, because about a year later, I found myself missing my sunflowers and wanting that kitchen back again.
