These 11 Father's Day Entertaining Essentials Will Ensure Dad's Celebration Is a Success
Father's Day, which takes place on the third Sunday in June, is a full 24 hours dedicated to honoring Dad. Though it's a time commonly spent grilling and playing all of his favorite games, the holiday's main goal is to celebrate the top-notch men in your life, whether it's your grandfather, husband, or dear Dad himself. While there are plenty of great presents to gift your guy on his special day, one of the best ways to show him how much you care is by bringing all of his loved ones together for a celebration. "Every father is different and celebrating with them should be a reflection of that," offers Jove Meyer, owner and creative director of Jove Meyer Events. "Be sure to incorporate your father's style and personality via their favorite foods, drinks, music, and décor."
Since Father's Day falls around the start of summer, we recommend planning an outdoor fête. With the warm-weather season as a backdrop and all of Dad's beloved family and friends there to partake, there's no way your gathering won't be a success. With that being said, there are a few entertaining essentials you should have handy ahead of Father's Day to ensure the event goes off without a hitch. If you're planning a cookout, for example, you'll need a set of grill tools, like this Lamson 4-Piece Tailgater Grill Tool Set ($99.95, williams-sonoma.com), to whip up steaks, burgers, and anything else on your menu. To set the event apart from any other summer barbecue, put together a tablescape that perfectly encapsulates Dad's taste.
