Plan a Golf Themed Barbeque to Celebrate Father's Day!
June 12, 2012
Your dad showers you with love and affection 365 days a year, so when Father’s Day rolls around, why not show him just how much he means to you with an awesome Father’s Day celebration? When you personalize a Father’s Day party to reflect his hobbies and favorite things, not only will he be touched that you went the extra mile to show him how much you care, but it will turn into a Father’s Day he will always remember.
If your dad is anything like mine, then his idea of a perfect Sunday is spending the morning on the golf course. Set him up with a morning tee time at his favorite course and let him know that when he’s ready to relax after the eighteenth hole, he should head to your house for a golf-themed barbeque where he will be the man of the hour!
Start out your Father’s Day celebration by letting Dad know how much you love him the minute he pulls up to the house with a customized Father’s Day banner. Personalize your banner with a special message for Dad wishing him a happy father’s day and letting him know how important he is. Since our banners are made of high-quality material, Dad will have a lasting memento that he will be able to keep for years to come.
Set this barbeque apart from your typical family dinners by getting a few Father’s Day decorations as well. Decorate the backyard with some metallic golf ball balloons to celebrate Dad’s favorite pastime. Use a golf ball balloon weight to keep them from floating off in the wild blue yonder! Add some golf ball table covers and you’ll have set the scene for a perfect golf-themed Father’s Day barbeque your dad will love!
Serve up your father’s favorite foods. Whether it’s ribs and chicken or something as simple as hot dogs and burgers, serve them on golf club plates for an extra festive touch. But, since it’s Dad’s day, give him a break and take over the grilling duties for a change! Unless he’s the type who won’t relinquish control of the grill tongs, in which case, he’ll probably be happier if he’s in charge of the charcoal. Add some simple picnic sides like potato salad, deviled eggs, potato chips, a veggie tray, and a Jell-o salad and you’re good to go! Just don’t forget all the toppings for those burgers! And the piece de resistance, a golf ball shaped cake in Dad’s favorite flavor! Or, for a special treat, have a local bakery make cupcakes in various flavor combinations to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth.
Our golf bottom lit cups are the perfect way to serve your guests their drinks at your Father’s Day party. If your dad has a favorite drink, be sure to have all the ingredients on hand, and, if you don’t know how to make it yet, ask him for a one-on-one lesson. Not only will he love teaching you how to make his favorite cocktail so that you can make it at all the family get-togethers, but he’ll love getting the chance to share his wisdom with you. Just be careful this plan doesn’t backfire or your father will expect you to have his drink made perfectly and waiting for him every time he walks in the door from now on!
Plan a few fun activities for your Father’s Day party. You can continue with the golf theme once the sun goes down and use color night flyer golf balls to play a backyard game of mini golf. Set up fun holes for the family to try their hand at using household items and ingenuity to create obstacles they must putt around to reach each hole.
Another fun game families enjoy playing together outside is Cornhole, which requires players on two teams to throw bean bags toward boards with holes cut into the center. Points are awarded to whoever can get their bags on the board and in the hole. Volleyball, lawn darts, touch football, Frisbee, and baseball are also fun summertime games that will keep the guests amused.
If your dad isn’t a big golf fan, this party can be adapted to any hobby or interest, whether it’s baseball, professional football, hockey, or soccer. But, in the end, it’s not the theme that matters. What matters is spending time with your dad and letting him know exactly how much you love him, how important he is to you, and how thankful you are for all he’s done for you over the years. Cherish every day you have with your father and make sure this Father’s Day is the best one ever!
