3 Ways to Make Your Father's Day Event Really Wow

Display photos of all the Dads in your family.

June is here, which means Father's Day is right around the corner. Whether you want to plan a casual shindig for the family, or a more formal affair for a large group, the entire point of the day is to make the dads in your life feel special. Luckily, most men of the family are pretty easy to please, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't go out of the way to really impress them. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Pick a Theme

Every event you host should have a theme because it shows that you put time and effort into the occasion, plus, it just makes it look better. For Father's Day, you will obviously want to base the theme around what the man of the hour is passionate about, but not in a way that resembles a kid's birthday party.

For example, if your dad or husband enjoys sports, maybe just choose the colors of the ball (brown/white for football, red/white for baseball, etc.) paired with grass-green for a simple look that will obviously be representing his favorite pastime without looking childlike. 


Don't forget the details, like mood music and gift-wrapping.
Make a Focal Point

Whether you are serving up beer and burgers or steak and champagne, you are going to want to have a centerpiece for your table that really wows. If you usually do floral arrangements, try something a little more masculine. You could fill a large glass bowl with beer bottle caps or stones (real or glass) and then place an interesting arrangement of twigs in the center.

If you really want to wow your guests, pull out some old pictures of your family that include any and all of the fathers, such as grandparents, uncles, and even great-grandparents. Put them in frames of different styles and sizes and you have a very interesting display that is likely to spark several enjoyable conversations.


Remember the Details

It's often the little things that can really make an event stand out, so don't forget the details, like mood music and gift-wrapping. Put together a playlist of the honoree's favorites and put it on repeat for the day. Instead of using traditional paper to cover the presents, use a newspaper page that fits in with your theme (the sports page, food section, ads for barbecues, etc.).

The entire point of Father's Day is to honor the men in your life that either raised you or are helping bring up your own children. You want them to know that you went above and beyond to ensure the day was exactly to their liking. Just don't drive yourself crazy trying to get it perfect, because most dads are usually just grateful for some grub and a hug.
