15 Jun Father’s Day Idea: The perfect brunch at home
We don’t know about you, but every year when Father’s Day rolls around, we tend to go through a bit of head-scratching. When it comes to Mother’s Day, from flowers to mani-pedis, there’s no shortage of gift ideas for our mums, but we always find it a little bit trickier when it to comes to dads. This Father’s Day, why not gather the family and treat the dads in your life to a special homemade brunch? After all, they say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and he’s sure to adore a meal that’s made with love. Read on for some ideas on how to host the perfect brunch at home to celebrate Father’s Day.
For the male heroes in our lives, a hearty, meaty meal is the way to go. A breakfast burger, topped with bacon and a fried egg and served on English muffins, fried chicken on waffles, complete with gravy, or the classic full English breakfast are all options that’s sure to make both him and his stomach happy.
Kick off Dad’s special day by having a mug of coffee, prepared in his favorite style, ready for him. But once he’s gotten his caffeine for the day, why not follow it up with a cocktail? Nothing says ‘special day off’ or feels more like one than having a drink in your hand. To keep things morning-appropriate, opt for pitches of Bloody Mary or the spiked orange juice Mimosa, both staples at brunch. If Dad’s not a drinker, just swap out the alcohol for refreshing mocktails to add a little something special to the meal.
The trick to make your Father’s Day brunch feel extra special and not just another everyday meal? Decoration! Dressing up your table and home will go a long way in making Dad feel important and loved. Bring out the fancy plates and tablecloth, and add flowers or plants to the table. Go the extra mile and set the mood with a home fragrance (we recommend Poetree’s fresh Island Bouquet or the fruity Ode to Joy) and a great music playlist. Tie it all together by getting your kids to make Father’s Day cards to hang up. That’s sure to put a smile on Dad’s face!
