The Gift of Grilling

It feels like there’s a fine line between keeping up family traditions and falling into a repetitive routine. Father’s Day is one holiday where it can be really easy to slip into a habit. Too often, it’s going to a favorite restaurant, playing a round of golf, exchanging presents, and that’s a wrap! This year I’m thinking there might be a better way to celebrate Dad. Totally low key and masculine, but with a few added celebratory notes. Why not spend the afternoon barbecuing out back with friends and family? It’s super fun, perfect for a summertime, and Dad will love playing the part of grill master. Click through for a few ideas that will help spice up the meal, and be sure to let us know what you plan on doing this Sunday!
