We have a date for you not to forget so get those calendars ready! Father’s Day is just around the corner, on Sunday the 4th of September! We see this day as an opportunity to spoil the marvelous men in our lives, plus Father’s Day is an excuse to fire up the BBQ and spend time in the sunshine! We have put together a Father’s Day celebration guide to help you celebrate this special day! Dads are the greatest and we would be lost without their help and guidance in our lives. It’s time to show them just how much they mean to us and how grateful we are for them. Read on for some tips on what to do for your dad this Father’s Day. You can also check out our Fathers Day Gift Guide if you are stuck for ideas!
There are plenty of activities and options for your dad on Father’s Day! Maybe he is an active Dad or maybe he just wants to stay at home close to his family and enjoy some delicious food. You could make him breakfast in bed, or get the family outdoors to have an afternoon together in the park or at the beach. We have lots of ideas for you to create a memorable Father’s Day that both you and your dad will cherish for years to come.
Father’s Day Lunch
A feast at home is the perfect way to celebrate Father’s Day! Dads tend to not like too much fuss and will most likely even say they don’t want a present or to do much on Father’s Day (we all know thats not going to happen though!) a lunch at home is the perfect way to show your Dad how much you love him. Invite all his family and closest friends around and cook up his favourite food!
To save yourself some time why not hire a caterer for your Father’s Day lunch. If you are based in Sydney check out Flavours Catering! They are one of Sydney’s leading caterers that will be sure to impress Dad and your guests.
Flavours Cateting can cater to any and all of your Dad’s requests! We think the BBQ Flavours Menu would be a big hit on father’s Day. It includes Chinese Style Meat Balls, Grilled Chicken Skewers with aioli dip, Little Hoisin & Sesame Glazed Duck Sausages and Balsamic Mushroom Skewers!
Or maybe you Dad loves burgers. Check out the Build Your Own Burger Menu! This is such a fun option where you and your Dad can build your dream burgers together!
Another delicious option is the Cavery Meats Menu! Take your pick from confit pork belly, succulent slow cooked lamb shoulder, whole boneless chicken or a 10 hour beef brisket!
Father’s Day Celebration Guide – Drinks
Most Dads would love a cold beer on Father’s Day! If you are looking for alcohol to come to you check out Quick Bottle. Put your order in with Quick Bottle and they will go to the bottle shop and pick your alcohol up for you and deliver it to your door!
Shorty’s Liquor in Sydney is another great option! They specialise in delivering a total beverage solution for your party including champagnes, wines, beer, ciders, soft drinks, water and those added extras such as glass hire, ice and tubs. They offer a premium delivery service to the Sydney CBD and surrounding suburbs including same day delivery! This will make your Father’s Day planning easy with everything you need delivered how you want, when you want!
To make the beer you give your dad on Father’s Day more special, you could decorate the beer bottles with a personalised label! Use quotes such as ‘Best Dad in the World!’
We love these personalised Dad tags we found via Pinterest!
Tableware & Decorations
Decorating the table can be kept simple for Father’s Day, unlike Mother’s Day where you might get out your best china for a High Tea, men we know are more simple. As long as they have some great food, a cold beer and their family and mates around they will have a fantastic Father’s Day!
We love the black and white theme, perfect for Father’s Day as colour isn’t a huge priority for men!
