Close Photography of Grilled Meat on Griddle

If you’re running out of gift ideas for Father’s Day, why not consider doing something a little bit different this year and plan an event instead? A great way to show the father figure in your life that you care is to get your family together for a planned event, either at home or at a location that you know they’d like.

Start off by choosing the perfect venue, and then look for a caterer with experience and a reputation for creating quality and unique menus for all sorts of events. Here are some ideas to inspire you, and that will hopefully be a perfect fit to show your father just how much you care.

Backyard Barbeque

Everybody loves a good barbeque, especially when you hire a catering company to take care of all the cooking for you. Give your dad a break this year from manning the barbeque and grilling food up for everyone else. Instead, treat them to a great time filled with good food, friends and family, and a cooler full of their favorite beer (or whatever beverage they love).

While not necessary, some fun décor will help set the mood. A checkered tablecloth is a common barbeque motif and can be done in either red or blue. Add some wood accents like wood slice placemats or coasters, picnic benches, or wooden chairs, etc.

Mini-Golfing with the Whole Family

Mini-golfing is fun for all ages, and a number of locations offer event spaces for things like birthday parties, or in this case, Father’s Day celebrations. With mini-golf, everyone can have some fun and enjoy courses full of character and unique gimmicks that will ensure everyone will have a good time.

Don’t forget to book a caterer who can complement the event with amazing food like sliders and fries, as well as tasty desserts like mini donuts with dipping sauce or golf-themed cupcakes. The options are endless, and a caterer will be able to help you come up with a fun menu that will please both the kids and adults at the event.

Plan a Fishing or Camping Trip

If you’re looking for something a little more low-key and personal, consider taking your dad out on day-trip fishing, or an overnight adventure camping. Make sure you plan to pack all of the essentials, like:

  • Tents, sleeping bags, pillows, and foldable chairs
  • Lamps, lanterns, and matches or some other lighter for fires
  • Mugs or cups, bowls, and plates, as well as utensils
  • A cooking pot, knives, and sticks for roasting up some marshmallows
  • A cooler, water bottles, and your dad’s favorite beer

And of course, if fishing is involved, then don’t forget to take along all your gear and be sure to plan out great fishing spots ahead of time that you can camp nearby.

With these unique ideas, you can create a truly unique experience for your dad that shows him how much you care this Father’s Day – the extra effort will definitely be worth it!
