Here’s a little last minute inspiration for your upcoming Father’s Day celebration. Dads are great and they deserve pretty things too.

Black and white platter // 7. Faceted wood bottle stopper // 8. Clear pitcher // 9. orange ramekins // 10. Windowpane glasses // 11. Sleek playing cards // 12. Horse cake plate

I associate orange with my dad and I have two theories as to why: one, it’s the color of our favorite sports team (Go Pokes); two, it’s the signature color of Home Depot. Regardless, a pop of orange mixed with neutral and natural elements makes a perfect Father’s Day set up.

I love that the black and white tray mimics a papa’s tie and the windowpane glassware (I can’t get enough of Kate Spade Saturday’s home line) makes me think of a shirt my dad wore to work when I was a kid. My father isn’t specifically into horses (and they actually terrify me) but that cake plate is insane. Those orange ramekins would be perfect for serving desert a la mode. Finally, dads like games (at least mine does) so playing cards are fun addition.

Happy Daddy’s Day!

Team girl and boy buttons were designed by Emily Hill Events and made here. Striped straws and berry baskets were purchased here. Cupcakes and cookies were from McArthur’s Bakery in St. Louis (and they were delicious).
