Father’s Day gives us pause to think about our Dads and the sort of lives that they have led. Throwing a “This Is Your Life” celebration is something really special to do for your Dad for next Fathers’ Day, his birthday or just because you think he’s great. The concept is great fun. It’s a celebration of someone’s life, with a host or hosts telling the life story of the guest of honour. It is a really fantastic way to celebrate your Dad’s achievements and let him know how proud you are of him.
Shhh…it’s a surprise…
For the most impact make it a surprise – get your Mum, Uncles and Aunties, old friends and neighbours to help with putting it all together. People who’ve known your Dad for a long time will know who to contact and each one of them will have something to contribute to his ‘life story’. Invite people from different stages of his life to ‘appear’ as special guests and share a memory about your Dad.
Make it a blast from the past
Find paper clippings from the year that your Dad was born. Print them up and make them part of the décor. The Sydney Morning Herald has its own digital archive which goes back as far as 1955.
Ask guests to dress in the style of the decade your Dad was born and play music from the era as well. All our rooms at are on the waterfront at San Souci and have dance floors for you to try out your Charleston, Jitterbug or Mashed Potato.
The perfect venue
Waterfront Function Centre is the perfect venue to celebrate the life of someone special. Each of our rooms has stunning water views and our Sapphire Room even has a small stage. We’d love to help you make this the night of your Dad’s life.
