Celebrating birthdays for dad may not always be the top priority. Life gets busy and many times you may simply forget to plan something in advance, which can mean rushing around at the last minute to try to throw something together. Planning for dad’s birthday can get lost in the rush of raising kids. If you want to plan an unforgettable party for that dad in your life, whether it’s your own father or the father of your children, read on to learn about four party ideas that will make any rad dad feel loved on their special day.


What dad doesn’t love a BBQ? This is especially true if he’s not the one who has to do the grilling. A BBQ party is an ideal way to celebrate for any dad who loves grilled foods and enjoys spending outdoor time with friends and family. When planning your menu, be sure to include favorites like burgers, hot dogs, steaks and plenty of side dishes. You can even include an array of outdoor activities to make the party even more fun. Don’t forget the gift to accompany that delicious food! If you haven’t found a gift yet, check out these gift ideas to celebrate your dad for his birthday, Father’s Day, or any day of the year.

Movie Night

Outdoor movie night parties can be fun for all ages. This family-friendly event can celebrate dad while still providing plenty of entertainment for the kids. Setting up an outdoor screen and projector along with lots of blankets, pillows, and chairs can allow you to show your favorite movie at home. Movie night parties can also work indoors. Don’t forget the popcorn, drinks and other snacks. Most rental companies have commercial popcorn machines you can rent if you plan on a large gathering.


If the special man in your life enjoys superhero movies or comics, you can’t go wrong with a party themed with his favorite characters. Superhero parties don’t have to be childish. There are many decoration ideas online to help you create a fun superhero atmosphere at your event. The finishing touch is a themed cake in his favorite flavor for a personalized party that he’s sure to love.

Man Cave

If you’re looking for a unique party idea that’s anything but basic and boring, a cave-themed party is perfect. Costumes can be fun but optional depending on your crowd. The menu for your cave theme party should include plenty of meat. Cooking on a bonfire can provide a real caveman feel for the event. Some other ideas include bone-shaped snacks, dinosaur decorations and molten lava cakes for dessert.

Celebrating Dad on his birthday shouldn’t be a last-minute affair. By planning ahead to arrange one of the four parties listed above, you can be sure that your own dad or your children’s father feels appreciated on his birthday. Consider what he likes to do and his hobbies when deciding which is the best type of event for his personality and preferences. Menus, decorations, the perfect gift, and the ideal location will help create a birthday party that no rad dad will ever forget.
