This party table, especially for dad, takes little time to set up, and will be loved by all.

Father's Day Afternoon Tea
Afternoon tea is a light mid-afternoon meal I grew up with, where a couple of sweet treats (often cake or cookies) are served with tea or coffee.

So, all you need for this table are a couple of treats that dad loves, his favorite beverage, and handmade gifts from the kids.

For this afternoon tea party table I served chocolate chip cookies and a Baskin-Robbins Father’s Day ice cream cake, along with iced coffee.

Canning jars are perfect for serving beverages.  You can dress them up a little by placing large baking cups on top of the glass before screwing on the metal band (I purchased these fun blue and white ones recently at Ikea).

You may be asking why you would want to add baking cups to your canning jars, well they are great for keeping bugs at bay, especially if you are entertaining outdoors. You can purchase custom metal lids that have a hole in the center for popping straws in, but for a last-minute option, baking cups make a fun alternative.

I have this simple banner on hand at all times for parties. It takes just a few minutes to take the ribbon off and replace it with another color if I need to. You may remember it from my recent Despicable Me 2 party table where I used purple tulle. The main banner is a piece of twine with burlap triangles attached with hot glue.
