Easy and fun ideas to celebrate Father’s Day
Plan a lunch or brunch with Dad’s favorite foods
Whether it’s waffles, churros or burgers, make sure to plan everything around Dad’s favorite foods. Here are a few of my own family recipes in case you want to try something new:
Set the table
There are so many fun props! You can buy signs or festive disposable plates at your local party supply store.
Elevate decor with a personalized touch
You can personalize wine, beer or water bottles. Check out these free printable Father’s Day bottle labels!
Prepare mocktails for a family-friendly brunch. Pour orange juice into stems of plastic Martini glasses and then top off with a blue sports drink like Gatorade or Powerade. You can also serve the blue beverage on its own or make a smoothie.
Snacks can also be served in plastic glasses. Slice fruit and serve in Martini glasses.
Instead of using bowls, keep everything on theme. If Dad loves grilling, use baskets or buckets. For example, make marshmallow skewers and display in a gingham bucket.
Create a Dad Zone
Make Dad feel extra special by designating an official “Chill Zone” where he can sit and relax.
