Father’s Day Ideas

man-863085_640

The time of year has come again to celebrate the special men in our lives. Whether it be your dad or the father of your children, Fathers Day is the special day that we can show how much we appreciate them and how we love them being in our lives.

Dad’s (in whatever form they may come) are important to us. They are a pillar of strength and a wealth of wisdom. They make us laugh, console us with a big bear hug when we are sad and nourish us with a perfectly cooked steak from the BBQ when we are hungry!

So how about honoring your father this year by showing your love through food and organising a picnic, an intimate family dinner or consider throwing a party!

Pick a destination like the Royal Botanical GardensManly Dam Reserve or any one of Sydney’s beautiful parks & beaches and order some gourmet platters or prepared BBQ items, ready to throw straight on the grill. Make sure you pack some entertainment like a frisby, a football or card games for everyone to enjoy.

Feel like staying indoors? Organise a poker night with your family. Pre-order your dad’s favourite dishes from our dinner party menu and have a chef & waiter take away all the stress for you and allow you to spend quality time with dad. We will take care of everything for you, from setting the table to washing & drying the dishes.

If you’re in the mood to celebrate on a larger scale what better way to do it than throw a party for Fathers day? Gather the family or a group of awesome dads and throw a shindig in their honour. You could make it dad-themed, with games like mini golf or darts or hire some table tennis tables and run a tournament. At Figmint we have a range of fantastic buffet style catering options or if you prefer quick easy bites, consider a cocktail style event featuring a DIY burger bar or taco station.

Whatever you decide to do this Sunday, we hope that your day is as memorable and amazing as Dad is!
