Father's Day Brunch

Here's a simple, summery way to celebrate Dad: Set a handsome table using decanters, tumblers, and even an ice bucket or two, all filled with a dramatic mix of garden greenery and understated blooms.

Party Planner

Our recipe for a perfect Father's Day get-together: Mix hearty food with dapper decor.

Play with Height

Sculptural leaves in glass bottles set off by a few white flowers in julep cups are festive but not frou-frou. Alternate tall arrangements with low bouquets to add texture.

Use What You Have

In addition to barware, empty liquor bottles with striking silhouettes can stand in for vases.

Mix Pattern

Striped napkins offset the floral abundance. We purchased a few yards of seersucker fabric, cut it into squares, and frayed the edges to keep it casual.
