The Golfing Gods Come to Dinner

Mr. Pressed Pants took an out of town business associate for golf today and then the foursome came back here for dinner.  I thought it was the perfect time to set a golf themed table.  What????  Did you think I would make them use paper plates?

Here are the linens that were the inspiration for the table.  I can't remember where I got them.

They are embroidered with golfing scenes......

and the napkins have a cool laurel wreath with crossed golf clubs.

Nothing here is special, but I like the way it goes together.  On these wicker chargers, I used our every day white pottery and then a dark green salad plate from Walmart.

I love this flatware.  Can't you tell?  I use it so often.

I found this vintage salt and pepper set at Scott's Antique Market several years ago.  The "P" is worn off of the pepper!

I grabbed these flowers at Kroger's and put them in this dark green pot.  I thought they looked a little too "pretty" for this table and I decided to add something to make it look more rustic.

I remembered these scabiosa seed heads that I dried from this post.

There!  Much better.

I'm happy with this table, but it's not too fussy for the fearless foursome. 

Then I remembered this teapot that I had in the "vault"!  If any of the men want hot tea tonight (Yea! Right!) they're all set.

Well, the shadows are getting longer and they should be back soon.  I think I'm out of here.

See this and lots of great posts at:

  5. The addition of the scabiosa pods made all the difference!!! Great call! And, no...no one would EVER think you would use paper plates!!! This is very pretty from a woman's point of view, but still quite manly. Great going!!! Hey....did everything make it to you intact? Were you able to screw it together OK? If I had shipped it in one piece it would have cost more than twice as much. I hope it was easy going for you! Let me know!

  6. I LOVE this! It's always such a treat to design a tablescape for the guys. The linens are superb, and I think that men have a soft spot for the classic golfing garb, typical at St. Andrews, et. al. Thank you for inviting us for a peak at your delightful design. Cherry Kay
