Tell Dad to sit back and relax—he’s earned the day off. No need to take on all his labors, though. However you choose to fete Daddy Dearest, you’ll find celebratory Father’s Day designs that are easy to customize and send. He may be the grillmaster, but we’re sure he’d abdicate the throne briefly if you’re planning a barbecue with gingham-print invitations to match the tablecloth. Aren’t you glad you have such a well-kept venue for the festivities? For lawn games and other outdoor exercises, you’ll find designs that feature a testament to his masterful dressage work on the riding lawnmower. If you’re not quite ready to spoil the activities, you’ll find stately typographic designs from bluepoolroad and motifs from Jack Spade with a touch of tongue-in-cheek masculinity. Those who would rather cut to the chase can use an invitation featuring a few frosty mugs of beer—a crowd-pleaser for young and old alike.
When you’ve settled on the best design for your Father’s Day fete, use the online design tool to personalize every pertinent detail. Pick out new fonts, type colors, an envelope liner, and online backdrop that best suit you (and of course, Dad’s) style. Putting together the guest list is as simple as clicking through the online address book—it’s helpfully pre-stocked with past party guests, but also able to import contacts from you and the guest-of-honor’s personal email accounts. Keep an eye on the projected attendance with online RSVP tracking and stock the cooler accordingly. When the day’s wrapped up, put a few family photos in the event’s online gallery. Dad will appreciate the golden memories every other day of the year.
If you can’t be there to celebrate Father’s Day with the pater familias, schedule and send a quick Father’s Day card in advance—to best avoid any guilting. Or better yet, help him put together a picnic or barbecue, so you can extend the outdoor festivities beyond the appointed day. He might also need a little technological help.
