Tablescape Tuesday: My Guys & Bowties

“As a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭103:13‬ 

I believe we are shaped by many people we walk through life with.  Scripture teaches us to love in deed and in truth, and I consider myself one of the most blessed women in the world to have four of the most godly men I know to love me well.  And I get to call these men my family!

My Daddy has set the greatest example of contentment and wisdom.  His gentle spirit calms my anxious heart, and his godly life is truly a living legacy.  Butch is the hardest working man I know, who stands for truth no matter what it costs him. He seeks to love me as Christ loves the church and has always been the very best example of an earthly Dad to Seth.  His endless sacrifice and love for me has forever changed who I am.  My brother Mike is my only sibling, and I couldn’t ask for a more faithful and loving brother…he is just the best!  And what joy it has been watching Seth become a Father to Ella Mae.  These four men are indeed a gift from the Lord.  This Father’s Day, I want them to feel honored and loved, and what better way to do that than through their stomachs?!  Join us at our Father’s Day table!

Butch loves the color blue, so I mixed in shades of green!


For the centerpiece, I used my charcuterie board with four cobalt vases of lemon balm, two mint julep cups with moss balls, and lacecap hydrangeas for the center vase.

The handmade bow ties were the inspiration for the table.  Each one has a different pattern mix.

I purchased the swirl glasses years ago and they remain a favorite!

The tablecloth is a cotton pin-stripe that mimics a man’s shirt!

Katy made the bow ties and they are perfect for our Father’s Day celebration!

Our menu will be my guys’ favorite dishes, high on the starches and not exactly foodie fare!  Poppyseed Chicken Casserole, 4-Cheese Macaroni, Country Lima Beans, Cheddar Biscuits, and topping it off with Funfetti Cake with Cream Cheese Icing!

“A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver”
Proverbs 25:11

    Those Sweet Swirl glasses never go out of style! I had them in green, then switched to clear. Love your entire table and beautiful thoughts of Daddies.

    Pam, What a lovely table. The guys all sound great. I will be spending the day with my Dad who is well into his 80s and is still in reasonable health. I’m blessed to have both of my parents still. Sylvia D.
