NASCAR Tablescape

The men in my life love their sports.  NASCAR is no exception.  We’re still Dale Earnhardt fans, and miss the excitement off his way of racing.  While Mr. Earnhardt was alive, we collected memorabilia of his.  So, why not decorate with it?  I decided to surprise my men with a tablescape that is completely NASCAR.  And naturally, in our home, it’s a Dale Earnhardt theme.

This was a fun tablescape to put together, mainly because I know what the looks on their faces will be!

Since his colors were Black, White & Red, I chose a black tablecloth.  Finding a black tablecloth at this time of year was almost impossible, so I bought a flat bed sheet in black & hemmed it to fit the table.

The place mats were originally panels that I’d gotten from JoAnn Fabrics years ago. The panels were originally going to be throw pillows, but I thought that they would make nice place mats.

For a centerpiece, I used a Dale Earnhardt cookie jar that I’d gotten from Walmart years ago.

And I used a collector’s tin car & a flag as a NASCAR Vignette.

I used red handled flat ware to bring out the red in the place mats and clear dishes so the pattern of the place mats would show through.  I really didn’t want anything to break that up.

I used NASCAR candy tins to the left of the place mat. (they’re filled with mints)  And our NASCAR salt & pepper shakers were perfect for this tablescape.

We all have a NASCAR mug, but since my son’s current favorite is Kevin Harvick fan, his place setting got that.

I used plain white napkins without napkin rings because it was starting to look a little busy.
