It’s almost that Sunday of the year that dads everywhere look forward to. This Father’s Day do something special for dear old dad! What better way to show him you care than by getting the whole family together and enjoying some delicious food out on the patio—no dad can resist a good BBQ. Get your favorite ingredients, open your Bi-Fold Patio Doors, and fire up the grill. Keep reading for some tips and tricks on hosting a barbecue your Dad will never forget!
It’s no secret Dads like to eat. That’s why the food you prepare is the most important aspect of your Father’s Day barbecue. Figure out your Dad’s favorite dishes and include that in the menu! Don’t forget to have lots of goodies to snack on while the main dish cooks. Your usual barbecue snacks like chips and dip, cheese and crackers, veggies, and deviled eggs are crowd favorites. If you want to spice things up or try a unique twist on a classic dish, check out these delicious recipes from The Food Network. Make lunch or dinner more enjoyable with plenty of carb-loaded sides like potato and pasta salad, garlic bread, and mashed potatoes!
Does your Dad have a favorite homemade dessert?... Or maybe he loves the cake from the local bakery—you know him best, so be sure to include some sweet treats that he will love! A variety of desserts to choose from is always the best idea (and then there’s leftover sweets to indulge in all week)! For some fun and tasty desserts check out Delish. We highly recommend the Strawberry Shortcake Lasagna!
One word: BEER. Nothing will make your dad happier than being surrounded by family, except maybe some ice-cold beer. Stock up on his favorite beer and have a koozie on hand to ensure his beverage stays cold. Sunday is his day and you should make sure he always has a beer in hand!
Spend the rest of the evening enjoying each other’s company and sharing stories about your Dad—he will love picturing himself through your eyes. Play card games or board games that everyone can participate in; take pictures and make new memories. Keep your Bi-Fold, Multi-Slide, Lift and Slide, and French Swing Patio Doors open and relax on the patio, soaking in that fresh summer air and enjoying indoor-outdoor living. Cherish this special, care-free moment that your whole family gets to spend together!
