Golf Resort Table

For this weeks table I am joining Kathleen at Let’s Dish for her destination themed table. I was thinking of Paris or Hawaii as I am in the coastal mode this summer. But then I realized that  there would actually be people here to eat at my table this week. My sister-in-law, her husband and the triplets are all golfers as well as my GG. So off to a golf resort it was.


I started with a club from the front hallway, borrowed boxes of new balls and the Longaberger golf basket from GG office, picked up a few trophies from the bookshelf, and weirdly then looked for dishes.





Every plate had a hole in one. The shamrock shaped plates made me think of the green of  Scotland. A small reference to the birthplace of the game. St  Andrews has been the Home of Golf for 600 years. As a destination it would be lovely. GG could golf and I could enjoy all the green of the country.



The pattern on the dinner plates could be a Scottish  lace design. I used these plates last for my Gift From the Sea  tablescape.


The constantly used chargers.


Since we live in the desert, these wineglasses from  Leaping Lizard  winery seemed appropriate.


The napkins Kaufman fabrics golf print is from years ago. I used it originally for the GG’s golf quilt.


The golf quilt lives on the family room sofa


Thanks for stopping by the course.

Stitch at you soon, Dawna

  1. I saw those plates and now i wish I had picked them up. I think they would even go with the turq plates. Eerily, we had the same tablecloth and chargers.. I love what you did this week with the golf theme. It's really great. Still loving the lace plates and love how the shamrocks pick up the color of your chairs.. Great fun! have a blessed week. xo marlis

    1. Thanks Marlis, I think we could probably get into a lot of trouble together if we lived closer to each other. If you ever need to borrow the lace plates let me know. Hugs, Dawna

  2. I have the wooden chargers also, and love them! Aren't they versatile? The plates are great, and the golf theme is fun. Have a nice weekend!

  3. What a clever table. Your centerpiece really sets the mood for your table. Those lace plates are gorgeous. I'm off to see that seascape table.

  4. Cute, going to set a golf theme table for our golf group supper club, now I some great ideas!
    Love your choice of dishes.

  5. What a great table! The golf theme is a good one and you really did a fabulous job putting together an interesting table. Those wooden chargers are on my wish list; I just love them. I like the shamrock plates- they add just the right touch. And the golf balls accenting each plate are a cute addition. I also like your centerpiece, too. Very creative!

  6. Looks like you fixed the problem, Dawna. I know you had over 24 visits, so I knew something was wrong!
    Loved your golf theme, so creative!
    Thanks so much for linking to Let's Dish!


Thank you for your comments, they brighten my day.
