The Perfect Party For Dad

Father's day Special

How to celebrate our dads!

Thinking of my dearly beloved father, who recently passed away, all I can say is, celebrate your "daddy" with a bang!

Getting married during this festive day? Why not dedicate a special song to him, or simply give him a little something that reaches his heart?

Brides and grooms listen up! A nice customized embroidered handkerchief, or a special tie YOU help to put on, will give you the opportunity to create a special moment just for the two of you, not to mention the great pictures. Savor that moment!

Not getting married? Not a problem. You can still celebrate your father by treating him to a nice and relaxed day.

Which dad doesn't like a good old fashion BBQ?! Well, get on it! Make it special with a theme in mind, one of his favorite things, perhaps.

Can be as simple as ribs, burgers, or beer theme; or you can even center it around his favorite sports team. In my case, I would have done a karaoke night... Yes, I'm Asian, and yes, my father LOVED karaoke!! Remember, it's all about him!

Here are some DIY father's day party theme ideas:

  • Food/beverage theme: ribs, burgers, tacos, sandwiches (the awesome sauce-dripping, mouth-watering kind), pasta night, cheese lovers, wine and cheese... Think tastings, think variety, think yummy.
  • Sports team theme: easy peasy. Take his favorite sport team, and basically use the team's trivia to entertain and decorate. For example, instead of table numbers, use players names; serve food that is inspired by the country of origin of the team. Brazilian team=Brazilian food!
  • Other Sporty themes: bowling night, pool party, golf day, etc.
  • Various themes: arts day (think galleries or museums tours; or theater shows), karaoke night (self explanatory), board-games party, or even try a cigar-lounge party.
  • Other over-the-top themes:
    Cars fan, take him to a race track experience; animal lover? Safari experience perhaps? If he loves the sea, maybe a yatch rental.
  • Go wild! Options are truly endless. Just PICK one, DO it, and CELEBRATE.

    My love to all daddies out there, and may the all-mighty be with you and your eventful endeavors!

    Yours truly,


    Chris and Dad
