9 Awesome Father’s Day Party Ideas
Dads should receive recognition for all that they do all year-round, but most of us don’t get to plan a party for the dads or father figures in our lives until the designated holiday comes around. He’s been there for you and taught you all he knows, so return the favor with a special Father’s Day celebration this June. Here are some Father’s Day party ideas that are as cool as the man (or men) who raised you.
Securing a venue for your next event, such as a Father’s Day party, doesn’t have to be a headache. On Peerspace, booking a place is simple. You can select a space for everything from a film shoot to a Father’s Day celebration. It doesn’t matter how big or small the event is or how long the duration — everything is available to rent by the hour.
1. Host a brunch bash
Let dad sleep in on this summer Sunday morning by hosting brunch instead of breakfast. Prepare tables, ample seating, and a killer menu of his favorite breakfast items such as egg muffins, bacon or sausage, quiches, doughnut holes, or croissants to a full-on pancake, omelet, or french toast bar complete with toppings and syrups.
Or, go all out with a bagel wall — a savory twist on the donut walls that you see all over wedding Pinterest boards! Many bagels places even offer catering so you can serve various sweet and savory flavors of cream cheese, too.
2. Give him the awards he deserves
You know your dad is the coolest ever, but how do you say that in a big way for his special day? If he is a man of many words, consider asking all the kids to make him silly or sincere (depending on how he rolls) superlative awards.
The awards can be made with hand-lettering or calligraphy on pretty paper like cardstock or scrapbooking paper, painted on wooden blocks, carved into metal garage signs, printed on coffee mugs, or etched onto custom plaques. It is a perfect idea for those who love to get creative and give meaningful, handmade gifts. This is the perfect addition to any other Father’s Day party ideas on this list.
3. Go beer tasting
If he’s a beer guy, consider booking a beer tasting at his favorite local brewery or hosting a DIY tasting party at home or the venue of your choice. You can buy individual beers by the bottle at BevMo, Total Wine & More, Cost Plus World Market, or Grocery Outlet. Gather some beers from around the world for an international tasting experience, and serve soft pretzels and beer cheese, fried appetizers, or other typical bar foods he likes. Consider buying a beer flight set to give your dad the full brewery experience at home (it can double as his gift!).
4. Get sporty
For athletic dads, consider taking the Father’s Day party ideas to exciting places, such as the driving range, TopGolf, the bowling alley, the batting cages, or your local sports bar. Many golf courses and bowling alleys already serve food, so the party planning will be a breeze.
5. Curate the perfect playlist
Sometimes music says all you need to say better than any card. Show your dad your appreciation by rounding up his favorite tunes. Study his Spotify or Pandora playlists to find out which songs, artists, and genres he’s jamming out to. Then ask around to discover his favorite songs from back in the day.
6. Give him the best day ever
Remember those coupons you used to make your parents as a kid? They were thoughtful but low-budget, last-minute gifts, and this is one of those fun Father’s Day party ideas that is similar in concept. However, this grown-up take on it requires a little more planning and better presentation. The basic idea is that you will create an itinerary (which you can type out on sleek paper) for your dad’s idea of a perfect day.
Think of his favorite activities. What would he do all day if he didn’t have to work or take care of things around the house? Create a day where he has no responsibilities other than to chill out and have fun. Gather his favorite foods and drinks or make the necessary restaurant reservations, book classes or experiences he loves, plan an outdoor adventure, and create a personalized, ideal day from sunrise to sunset just for him.
7. Take the party to an awesome venue
Peerspace lets you try out a unique place for any event. Bring this year’s Father’s Day party ideas to life in a sports bar, speakeasy, studio, gallery, or any place you think your dad would love. You can find places with useful amenities, such as kitchens and fireplaces, that will complete your party. The possibilities are endless when you can think outside your typical house party.
8. Host a toast and roast
For your favorite jokester with an endless supply of cringe-worthy dad jokes, consider setting up your own “comedy night” in a local bar or cafe. All you need is a microphone and some prepared speeches. Ask all of the kids to toast and/or roast your dad(s) (depending on his personality). It’s like giving verbal Father’s Day cards.
9. Enjoy a backyard summer BBQ
Barbeques are always a good idea in the summer! If your dad is the guy who is always at the grill, treat him to a relaxing backyard BBQ party where he doesn’t have to do the cooking. Round up his favorite meats or grill-worthy veggies, or create a burger or hot dog bar with all of his favorite fixings. Stock a cooler or bucket with everything he loves to drink, then decorate your yard with lights, lanterns, sports pennants, or flags.
Give your dad, or dads, more than just cards and ties this Father’s Day. Go the extra mile and show him you really care with these awesome Father’s Day party ideas.
