June Party Ideas

June could be the month when you allow a little plundering, or ace Father’s Day in a different way. Let’s look at the possibilities.

School’s Out: Mutiny Averted
Often, the last day of school feels like a “just in time” moment all around; so it’s not unusual for parents and just-released young school-agers to travel to a park or someone’s home for a celebratory lunch and outdoor play. If this sounds like you, think about taking one additional step to throw a theme party – and in this case, we recommend a pirate theme.

A pirate theme is easy to incorporate into this type of gathering. A regular grilled hamburger magically becomes a “bilge burger” ‘cause you said so; a peanut butter sandwich turns into a skull with a quick application of the proper cookie cutter. A treasure chest cooler from inflatable coolers holds water or juice (AKA grog). Bury gold coins in a sandbox, float toy boats in a wading pool, and hand out eye patches and bandannas and nautical theme custom bubbles.

Of particular utility to a young children’s pirate party held outdoors is inflatable décor. Crocodiles, swords, palm trees and parrots inspire play, tend to survive less-than-perfect weather and make terrific favors (just be sure with very young children that the take-home items are the same for all).

Flag Week: Yes, Week
Most everyone knows that June 14 is Flag Day, but not as many are aware that the week of June 14 is, just as officially, Flag Week. This means you can throw a weekend barbecue with Flag Day decorations and a Flag Week theme and all remains right with the world.

Break out the bunting, pinwheels and patriotic tableware. Put up the outdoor patriotic decorating kit and think about leaving it up through the 4th of July. It is flag season, after all!

A Sporting Dad’s Day
Sure, the theme for Fathers’ Day could be “Fathers’ Day,” or you could kick things up a notch by paying homage to Dad and his favorite sport on his special day by shopping in sports party supplies.

For golf, baseball and many other sports, start with an appropriate wall mural or background, such as the Golf Course photo backdrop. Cover tables with grass print tablecovers and a cake (or cupcakes) done up with cake supplies that are cute or witty and in your chosen sports theme.

Place a life-sized sports standee in a prominent place at the party for laughs and photo ops, and scatter small sports-related items on tables (e.g. mini baseballs or whistles). Finish the decorating with clusters of themed mylar ball-shaped balloons mixed with coordinating colors of latex balloons.

The Month of the Rose
June is Rose Month, which is perfect for garden wedding themes, June birthday themes and garden-related events such as garden show receptions and fundraisers.

Choose from Rose Garden, Red Rose or White Party flower designs for banners, and decorate using boxwood or ivy garland and balls of grapevine or moss. On tables, alternate the balls with sand-filled, beribboned terra cotta pots “planted” with lollipop favors in your chosen design. The aforementioned grass print tablecovers might be of use here, too!

Relaxing Father’s Day Party Ideas

Time to Plan Your Relaxing Father’s Day Party

With Father’s Day slowly approaching (it’s June 17th), it’s definitely time to start planning a fun party.  To show the special Dad in your life just how much he means to you, plan a nice, relaxing Father’s Day party.  Because you have a lot of time to plan (at least, you have a lot of time if you start planning now), you can choose from a wide variety of parties.  Generally, most people plan a fun backyard barbecue for Father’s Day. This year, try pulling out other ideas—look at your dad’s favorite sports.  No matter what sport he follows the most, there are all sorts of party ideas buried.

Relaxing Father’s Day Backyard Barbecue

The standard fun party idea for Father’s Day is a cookout.  While dads are usually the grill men, give him the option this year.  Either let Mom cook, or (if he wants to) give Dad his place at the grill.  The catch this year is that Dad has to wear a chef’s hat and an apron decorated by his loving family.

When you start planning what food will be appearing at your Father’s Day backyard barbecue, think about your dad’s favorite foods.  Pick his favorite main dish, a few of his favorite sides, and make his favorite dessert.  If he wants to be a part of the food preparation (if he maybe has a new seasoning he wants to try or something along those lines) and the cooking, let him.  Don’t refuse to let him be a part of the fun.  It’s his day; he can do whatever he wants!

Father’s Day Sports Party

If your dad wants to just sit and watch sports for awhile on Father’s Day, let him!  Suggest that he invite a few other dads and guys over to join him!  However, after a few hours, try to remind him that he needs to get up and about, maybe go outside and get some fresh air.  The catch is: while he’s been sitting inside watching sports with his friends, you and the kids have been outside, maybe conspiring with the families of the friends he’s watching sports with, and decorate your backyard before beckoning Dad outside.  Watch his face when he walks into a backyard sports party!  Whether his favorite sport is baseball, basketball, football, golf, or racing, he’ll be shocked to see his backyard transformed into a Father’s Day party place!  Even within each of those Father’s Day party themes, there are other choices to be had: use his favorite team as a jumping-off point; pick either car racing or the Kentucky derby; you can even plan activities for the party!  Remember, though, it’s your job to make sure it’s a relaxing day for the dad in your life as well as a chance for you and your family to show him how much you love him.  Happy Father’s Day party planning!

Father’s Day is just around the corner. This year, if you want to really show dad how much you love him, why not throw him a unique Father’s Day fiesta? There are plenty of Father’s Day party supplies you can use to make your dad feel like he’s king of the world.

First you’ll want to welcome all of your dad’s pals over by hanging up a banner letting them know that you’re house is where the party starts.

Since it’s summertime, why not take the party to the backyard? Get out the grill and start serving up some of dad’s favorite foods. Go all out and hang up mylar balloons in the shape of a grill. While you’re at it, get some fun cutlery to match. You can get plates and cups that are adorned with racing strips, BBQ flames or images of your dad’s favorite sports. It’s up to you!

If you want to give Pop an extra special surprise, get a life size standee of the man-of-honor custom-made!

At the end of the evening, send your guests home with some keepsakes. Personalized coffee mugs or candles in the shape of frothy beer mugs are both great ideas. Light the beer mug candles if your party goes into the night.
