Here is what Jen had to say about the party- “To create our look, we covered an executive-style office desk with an earth toned tablecloth, added a ‘putting green’ runner (Astroturf from a home improvement store works great!), some burlap for the sand trap, a few containers of artificial grass & the basics were covered for one tee-riffic party!  Of course, printables always help to tie in the theme, add a pop of color and bring that added pizzazz that make celebrations go from ordinary to extraordinary. Dear old dad is worth the extra effort, right?  This gorgeous golf themed printable set by Bird’s Party combines classic argyle and striped patterns in shades of aqua, green, navy and white.  From the adorable par-tee banner to the coordinating drink wraps & circle labels, it was the ‘par’fect touch!

Need some quick decor ideas?  To add some interest to our par-tee, I filled containers with artificial grass balls, color coordinating golf tees, plastic practice golf balls & such. If your dad is an avid golfer, finding old golf paraphernalia around your home shouldn’t be hard. I used a pair of golf shoes, a golf statue, some old golf clubs and an old trophy to bring in some personal items to our display. Old rustic silver pails, glass apothecary jars & vessels were all used to house coordinating themed treats & decor. Golf silhouettes and printable subway art were hung in picture frames on the wall to coordinate. Jones Soda bottles and water bottles were accented with drink wraps, cute party straws, golf tees & mini golf pennant flags. Darling cupcakes with grass-like frosting (Wanna Cupcakes) were perched atop styrofoam covered in Astroturf.  The cutest putting green & golf ball cake pops (Pop.O.Licious Cake Pops) were nestled in spray painted plastic trophies purchased at the dollar store & an old metal pail filled with green shred to resemble grass. Mini golf themed artisan chocolates (Vita Dolce Chocolates) were housed in individual mini pail favors (to resemble range buckets).

No celebration is complete without an array of coordinating sweet treats. The highlight of our dessert buffet included a beautiful cake, from Celebrity Cake Studio. Gorgeous details from the printables were recreated on the cake, from the striking argyle pattern, to the golf landscape & oversized golf ball and tee.  It definitely was the focal point of our dessert display.  Incredibly detailed fondant pieces were masterfully designed by Edible Details. Three dimensional golf clubs accessorized our peanut ‘putter’ parfaits par-fectly! I adore the 3-D golf balls that sat impressively atop real golf tees in the centers of gourmet cupcakes made to resemble patches of grassy course.  And, the golf cart fondant toppers were phenomenal!  Cookies Are My Canvas captured the beauty of Bird’s printables on a cookie! Sweet Temptations also provided delicious golf-themed chocolate covered Oreos, great for everyone celebrating Dad!

The dessert menu included:

  • Donut ‘Holes-in One’
  • Peanut ‘Putter’ PAR-faits
  • Tee-riffic Cake Pops
  • Caddy Cookies
  • ‘Sweet Spot’ Cookies
  • Golf ball cake
  • Chocolate Covered Oreos (golf-themed design)
  • Cupcakes (with putting green, golf cart & golf ball fondant toppers)
  • Chocolate ‘Dirt Clods’  (mini artisan chocolates)

Drinks:

  • ‘Water hazard’ (water)
  • Jones Soda in coordinating colors (white, green, aqua)

A full course menu could include a wide range of additional golf themed items such as ‘club’ sandwiches, a ‘wedge’ salad, ‘greens’, ‘chips’ & dip and so forth.  The possibilities for honoring dad for Father’s Day with this golf theme are endless!  ‘Putt-ing’ a smile on Dad’s face this year can be easy!”
