Flashback Friday - Fishing Themed Tablescapes

This week I am once again a "fishing widow."
Yep, Mr. A headed north, way north, to fish some river in Canada.
While I'm not into fishing, I do love to set a fishing themed table!

This one is a favorite from 2010, set for a simple fisherman's luncheon, using Spode transferware and feather placemats.

I sat a ceramic fisherman whiskey decanter atop a stack of angling books for the centerpiece.

For a Father's Day table several years ago, I layered enamelware fly plates over enamelware faux bois chargers.

I used a wool tartan throw from Ralph Lauren for the tablecloth and French linen napkins.

Last winter, I mixed and matched the Spode trout plates with majolica and the same faux bois chargers.
I was going for a woodland stream effect down the center of the table.

It is fun mixing and matching my fish themed dishes, each time coming up with a new look depending on the linens and centerpiece.
However I mix it up, it still says "gone fishing!"

Want to set a masculine table for your favorite outdoorsman?
Here are a few of my favorite picks that I've curated...

Pin It!

Your attention to detail always impresses! I noticed the fishing and river books that the fisherman decanter was sitting on. Boy, no stone goes unturned with you!

I have been hoping you would post a tablescape for a while now! This fall weather has me pining for some brown transfer ware - and I knew just where to come for my fix!

I NEED to see your Welsh and pine hutches filled with dishes!!

Many thanks for sharing!

Delores, I've always admired your "Gone Fishing" themed tables. You have great style! The faux bois chargers and the majolica really are perfect with the Woodland plates.
Thanks for sharing these again. ~ Sarah
