Father's Day 2015 Tablescape

Our Dad was a kind and generous person who loved animals. We always had a house (and yard) full of assorted "critters" when we were growing up. After all of us kids left home (leaving it quiet,) Dad acquired an assortment of birds - much to Mom's dismay - to fill the "noise" loss. When Pat and I were at Pier 1 two weeks ago, we spotted these great parrot plates that we knew immediately were absolutely perfect for Father's Day!
Here's to you, Dad. We miss you.
The table

We found these odd colored lacquer chargers at Michael's a few years ago in the sale bin

These gorgeous metal chargers are from Pier 1
