Father's day tablescape

 At our household, father's day is always celebrated outdoors, either for breakfast or for a barbecue. Well, everything tastes better when you eat outdoors, don't you think? In keeping with the masculine theme for dad, I used burlap instead of a traditional tablecloth. 

The centerpiece is made with garden flowers, pincushion proteas, ming and maider hair ferns, succulents, and dried pods to name a few. The finishing touch is one David Austin Heathcliff rose.
