The week before Father's Day, my hubby was away all week on a motorcycle trip. He and a friend, along with two of his brothers pulled out early on the Saturday morning. They weren't much more than around the first bend, when I started planning part of his Father's Day gift for the next weekend.
The first step was to spread out the black tablecloth. Then I went to my box of fabric. I knew I had something that would be perfect for the center of the table. In grade 7, our son had to make an apron in Family Studies when they were learning to sew. He choose a fabric with orange and red flames!! I was so glad I saved the leftover piece. It was big enough to allow me to cut out a large rectangle for the center of the table.
The 'Orange Cream Soda' Jones Soda was perfect, with it's black label and cap. You can order custom labels as well. Check it out here.
I grabbed the helmet right off the bike the morning he got back. I perhaps should have wiped a few 'splats' off of it?? Gloves, and glasses are two of the necessities, and they complete the centerpiece.
The silver chargers imitate the chrome parts on the bike. Then I added the orange melamine plates that I found at Home Hardware. Black handled cutlery, and orange paper napkins complete the place setting. All tied up with a black shoestring licorice!
This was the appetizer plate!! :0)
We had a great day! We went to church that morning, and enjoyed a quick take out lunch together as a family. Then hubby had a snooze while I got salads ready for a BBQ with my father-in-law for supper that night.
