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 d├ęcor 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..

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.

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

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