Father's Day Gathering Ideas

Are you in charge of hosting a get-together for your family and friends to celebrate the dads for Father's Day? If so, read on for some really cute themes and ideas. I also have linked some free printable signs, so be sure to download those if you decide to go with one of the themes mentioned here! Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!

Theme 1- Pizza Night 🍕 

Whos dad DOESN'T love pizza?! I think this would make a great theme to celebrate dad with. I love the idea of even making some homemade pizzas instead of ordering delivery. It would be such a fun experience for the whole family, and you can get really creative with toppings and recipes.

For the set-up above, I used some red and white check napkins from Hobby Lobby. The pizza tray and pot holder are also from Hobby Lobby. I then added in some cute fake tomatoes and some silk flowers I arranged in a tomato sauce can I saved.

The small wood cutting boards are also Hobby Lobby and I just arranged a mini charcuterie board for each one, but you could use them to hold anything!  You can grab that printable sign from the link below and pop it in any 5x7 frame you have around the house. I just love the cute saying!

Theme 2- Gone Fishing 🎣 

I know there a tons of dads out there that love fishing! This set-up is reel cute (ah pun intended)! Pair a cheap dollar store net with some cute fishing plates and theme candy for a fun way to celebrate dad!

I used some green spike grass I had from another event and stuck it in a mason jar. You could even head outside if you have some cattails or anything else that you could cut and use. I added a net from the Dollar Tree and cut out some fish from a clipart pack I purchased off Etsy.

These cute plates came from Amazon and came with the matching cups and napkins. I filled a vase with water and tied a fishing lure to a bobber. I bought these from a sporting goods store, but if dad has any laying around you could use those! I sprinkled bobbers around the table and used some on theme candy.

If you wanted to take it one step further, I have an adorable idea for you! Grab a cheap tackle box off Amazon and fill it with all sort of goodies! You could either leave this out for everyone to munch on, or gift it to dad for when he's out trying to catch those fishies!

Theme 3- BBQ Grill Master 🍔

Most dads are very protective of their grill. Easily create a fun set-up for the grill master in your life. I think this would be a perfect set-up outside on the patio or deck!

 Here are those red and white check napkins again! I love how versatile they are, especially for the summer. I paired them with plastic white plates and red star plates from the Dollar Tree. I snagged some of those cute red plastic boats to fill with cheeseburgers and other yummy grilled foods.

I think my favorite part of the whole set up though might be this little baby grill! It's actually a condiment container and came with a little spoon too. Im obsessed!

I added these cute watermelon and ice cream cone tumblers- they were just screaming summer BBQ! The hotdog and hamburger pot holders were also a must add- perfect for hot trays coming right off the grill!
