Planning a party? Why not go all out for the fishing fan in your life?
Whether you're throwing a party for dad this Father's Day, or any other fishing fanatic in your life, you can really pull together a great themed party with a few ideas!
Tiffany Hurd from Tri-Rentals Event Specialist is dishing out tips to reel in the perfect party.
"Rod & Reel"
A fantastic Father's Day theme. Select a fishing movie or turn on the sportsman's channel. Set up a wading pool for the kids & toss in some magnetic fish & fishing poles for a pseudo fishing experience. Add camping chairs, lanterns & blue enamelware for dining to create the perfect riverside fishing experience.
Retirement Party for the angler. Research some fishing stories, the one that got a way & favorite fishing holes of the retiree. "Pool" your funds and send him away for a weekend to his ultimate fishing site.
"Hook, Line & Sinker"
Bachelor Party. Anyone for ice fishing? This is a fun get-a-way, bonding between buddies before the groom ties the knot. If the groom can't take the trip, then Tri Rentals will show you how to achieve that ice look.
Fishing, cruising- these events can be turned into fun nautical- style parties by adding bars, ottomans, outdoor furniture around a pool. Umbrellas, tents in assorted colors add charm and flavor.
"The One that Got Away"
Turning 50? The years flew by and got away. Decorate & entertain with the decades of fishing gear, photos & videotaped stories from fishing buddies.
"Landing the Big One"
This theme covers a multitude of possibilities: graduating from college, getting his first job or finding his first great client. Be festive & upscale with sublime blue linens & silver tableware, sparking with fishing lure accents.
