DIY Brunch Hacks! (Perfect For The Dad Who Prefers To Eat At Home)

If your pa prefers a home cooked meal to eating out, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite brunch hacks to make this special meal anything but ordinary.

  • Make a playlist! A curated playlist of all dad’s favorite songs will not only be something that will enhance the DIY brunch, but also something he can put onto his devices and listen to at the gym, on his subway commute, or in his apartment, all year long!
  • Prepare a game to go along with brunch! Perhaps this is something as simple as everyone going around the table and saying the thing you love most about pops, or as elaborate as having a 500 piece puzzle made using a family photo, and then assembling it together after the meal. Online sites such as Shutterfly can easily print these and ship them to you in time for the big day!
  • Using some of Dad’s favorite seasonal ingredients, prepare a mocktail named after him! This is sure to delight him, and is also something that can be prepared the other 364 days of the year to rekindle memories of his special brunch.
