I'm a little hurt that none of our friends elected to share their Masters tickets with us this year. Did I do something? Did we slight someone? Come on people......keep me on your invitation list! Well, in a show of licking my wounds, I set a golf themed table for our foursome, and then we played a round together. This is my salute to the Master's Championship!
It was not too frou-frou, just clean and sort of masculine.
The star of the table was the linens. They are embroidered with golf themed images.
This old guy is perfect to reflect the tradition of the Masters.
I used these woven napkin rings with these crisp napkins.
I stacked a wicker charger, our every day white china, and a dark (Masters jacket colored) green salad plate. Then these dark wooden handled flatware joined the group.
The glassware was a combination of some very inexpensive golf printed tumblers from Old Time Pottery and some green Imperial glass stems.
The Masters championship is known for it's azaleas, but ours are not quite open yet. I was not too inspired by the grocery store's selection of flowers, but I chose these white carnations and packed them en masse to look like a golf ball. Was that the first thing that came to your mind when you saw this? No???? No one else caught it either. :-(
Then I stuck some river birch twigs in there.......
and added this weird little bit of fill. Now, these DO look golf balls, don't you think?
These vintage salt and peppers got to come out and play.
The old wooden candlesticks gave the space some weight, and you can see here that I used a piece of burlap as a runner. One of our guests remarked that it looked like sand, and I think she jinxed me, as I was in the sand waaaay to much when we later played.
Not much to clean up to get over to the practice range.
I knew no one would want tea, but I couldn't resist putting this cute tea pot on the table. Maybe I'll use it next time for a vase.
Well, if you're wondering what I fed our friends, it was pimento cheese sandwiches!!!!! If you've never been to the Masters, it wouldn't mean much to hear this, but that golf tournament is known for it's incredible pimento cheese sandwiches, and they are only $1.50, I think. The best value in spectator sports, for sure.
