Being a dad on Father’s Day can sometimes be rough. According to a consumer survey, over 75% of people feel that moms get more attention than dads on their respective special days. With those figures in mind, it’s time to throw a grand celebration to show your old man just how much you love and appreciate him. To make his party extra fun and meaningful, try incorporating his personality, interests, profession, or favorite hobby into the party’s theme. Here are few Father’s Day party ideas to get you inspired:

All-Star Sports Party

Whether your dad is a weekend warrior or an armchair athlete, a sports-themed party will make him feel like a winner!


Attire

Dad will get a kick out of seeing everyone wearing his favorite team’s uniform or apparel. If finding gear from his favorite team isn’t possible or practical, here’s a simpler option: ask guests to wear the colors of his team. Dressing up in club colors, whether it’s Liverpool FC’s red or the Los Angeles Lakers’ gold and purple, would be an awesome nod to your dad’s fanhood (even if you’re more of a San Antonio Spurs fan).

Décor

Embellish party banners, balloons, and table decoration with the same club colors. Hang pennants and jerseys on the walls, and scatter caps and sports gear around the room. If your dad loves golf, set up a putting mat and encourage his friends to aim for that elusive hole-in-one. Is your dad a sucker for soccer? Borrow or rent a foosball table and stage a Foosball World Cup in his honor!

Dinner

Prepare a dinner fit for champions by serving dad’s signature dishes with tasty stadium-style food. Fill up your Father’s Day menu with spicy chicken wings, hot dogs with toppings, and slices of pizza. Guzzle ice-cold beer in paper cups to wash it all down.
