Come Party With Me: Father's Day — The Look

Come Party With Me: Father's Day — The Look

For the no-fuss father, keep the decor of your Father's Day celebration minimal and outdoorsy. Since the majority of the menu is grilled, a Weber barbecue is a must. Whenever we have big parties, my dad always fills a bucket or cooler with ice and beverages. The fridge is normally full of food, so having another vessel for chilling beverages is a good idea. Place an everyday vinyl tablecloth on the table. Cover a metal platter with rock salt and serve the barbecued oysters on top. Plastic plates ensure that nothing breaks, and dark-colored cloth napkins are necessary for enjoying sticky ribs. Pour the gin and tonics into classic glass tumblers.

My dad's prone to mosquito bites, so we always light several citronella candles when eating on the deck. Finally, instead of a bouquet of flowers, give Dad a money tree. While it doesn't grow cash, it does wish prosperity on those who possess it.

Love the pic! You always mention how close you and your dad are and it's nice to see what he really looks like. I always picture him looking like my dad as we have a similar relationship (it's sort of an Elizabeth Bennett/Mr. Bennett thing - you know, we are the two sane conspirators in the crazy crazy family)
