We here at Cooking Channel love a good party. But throwing a memorable event requires more than just gathering some food and drink. We show you how with just five main “ingredients” (including recipes, big-impact decorating ideas and easy DIY elements) you can throw a party that feels like it has a cohesive theme — minimal work required.
Though our dads deserve a big bash to honor their thankless sacrifices, Father’s Day is often underserved with a simple, lackluster barbecue. This year, attempt to repay Dad with a Southern-inspired comfort food brunch that features his favorite flavors and something different than the steak-and-burgers, beer-and-sports routine. (Why should brunch — a hearty, any-time-of-day meal — be saved for the moms only?) A buffet setup keeps this party concept laid-back, while a neutral palette proves that the manliest of men can be celebrated with themed decor.
To host your own Father’s Day brunch, you’ll need five essential ingredients:
• family photos, new and old
• Bloody Marys
• printable Father’s Day cards (download the template here)
• potted succulents
• Virginia ham biscuits
