Father’s Day

Father’s Day is a great excuse to jump-start your summer fun!  Why not host a cookout in his honor after a day of golf or miniature golf for all ages.  My father loves the color blue but you can use any colors to decorate your tablescape.  To get the whimsical look in the above flower arrangement gather blue and green hydrangeas, a round glass vase and wiffle balls.  To tailor it to a golf theme add golf balls and tees.
