Men’s Birthday Tablescape

A few days ago we celebrated my sweet husband’s birthday, and I put together a pretty handsome table for our little family celebration.  Living in a house of all girls, he’s always out numbered and always a good sport when it comes to being surrounded by pink and pretty.  Since this was his special day though, I wanted it feel like him.  His fav. colour is blue, and I was going for a casual, masculine feel.

Since it was casual (he requested take-out fish and chips for dinner), I started out with butcher paper for the paper, and then added in some easy blue accents.  The bunting flags are some that I made ages ago, but usually make an appearance for Father’s Day.  They’re made out of old thrifted men’s shirts, and I love all the blue stripes, and checks together.

I even made a mini-version for his birthday pie.

The centrepiece was simple, a beautiful bucket of white hydrangeas with a few pussy willow sticks tucked in.

For a personal touch, I made these sweet little bags of peanuts, one of his favourites.  I decorated the bag with every version of “52” I could think of…writing, printing, numbers, roman numerals, even “two score and twelve”.  I just used a blue sharpie to add them to the bags, and you could do this for any number depending on how old your birthday boy is.

I love the peanut bags with the plaid napkins.

With a wonderful husband like mine to celebrate, life really is a party!

  2. Thanks Mia

  3. I really like this table. It is so simple and yet so festive – just the kind of table I enjoy! I love your banner too. I would love to have one like that.

  4. Thanks so much Barbara. The banner was simple to make; a few old shirts, cut and stitched on to some ribbon, you could even use glue. Thanks again.
