The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

With Him In Mind. . .

Father's Day came early this year ~
                                              and early On Crooked Creek!




So~o~o. . .

I called my son and daughter ~in~law. . .

               planned a menu

. . . then set the table for our 2ND Annual B~B~Q!



On Crooked Creek . . . here's
                                         What's On The Menu:


2ND Annual B~B~Q 

B~B~Q Beef Short Ribs
"Bill's Brats"
Creamy Coleslaw
Baked Mac & Cheese
Butterflake Rolls
Iced Tea

Peach Cobbler
Half & Half



Now a Father's Day tablescape ~ with him in mind!




I began with a sage green window pane check tablecloth, then borrowed the coffee table lower level display for the centerpiece. Guess you could say, "I was fishin' for ideas"!



Next, I tried several place mats. I had three different ones on the table at once. Then I called in the 'resident decorator' for his opinion. His choice was the paisley! So~o~o...paisley it is!!!


Keeping  him in mind,
I already knew which dinnerware would be used. . .




"Mr Ed's" Trout plates!!!



From many years past,
a Christmas gift ordered from the Bass Pro Shop catalog!
A complete set for eight!!!





His dinnerware set consists of dinner plates, dessert / salad plates, cereal/ soup bowls and coffee mugs!


The green rim around the dinnerware complements my vintage restaurant dinnerware nicely! We'll be using the serving size bowls for our Butterflake Rolls!




My men hate using cloth napkins!
Perhaps with all the B~B~Q we'll be having today,
                               it's a  'good thing'  to use the paper napkins???







The completed place setting using our wooden handled flatware purchased from our years in Germany.  Our clear bubble glass water goblets will take on an amber hue when filled with iced tea!





Cereal / soup bowls
are awaiting service in the Farmhouse French Style Kitchen!
Today, they'll be used for dessert!


 


Warm,
 fresh from the oven,
Peach Cobbler will be joined with Half & Half for our finale!




Vintage Oven Ware Fire King sugar bowl holds our spoons. . .
while the creamer waits to be filled with
thick, creamy Half & Half!!!




Our table has  been set for four. . .

                   as son and daughter ~ in ~law will be joining us
                                        to commemorate our 2ND Annual B~B~Q!





On Crooked Creek. . .
                                       with him in mind!


Until next time. . .
