Celebrating Fathers

While many states have started phased re-openings, some local businesses are not yet up-and-running.

This means that local traditions like eating hotdogs and drinking beer at a Richmond Squirrels baseball game is on hold.

No worries! Transformations by Jill has rounded up a few ideas to hunker down at home with that special guy in your life. 

Serve a hearty brunch.

We love the idea of the Baker Mama’s “Pancake Board” with of all the hearty ingredients for a creative brunch.  If you would rather not cook, reach out to the many local Richmond restaurants offering curbside brunch delivery for Father’s Day.

Organize a Beer Tasting.

He may not be able to sit down at his favorite craft brewery on Father’s Day, but he can still enjoy the offerings of local breweries in the comfort of his own home. Start with a personalized beer flight set with glasses from Zazzle.

Pick up a mix of lagers, ales, sours, and IPAs from local breweries like Strangeways, Center of the Universe Brewery and Hardywood.  Then, start pouring!  It’s a win-win for the breweries and that special Father in your life.

Steal his heart with Sweets.

The only thing sweeter than your relationship with dad is a homemade Father’s Day cake.  Try “Brooklyn Blackout Chocolate Cake” from Tieghan Gerard’s Half Baked Harvest.  It’s three layers of dark, mysterious, chocolatey goodness!

Give him a unique card.

Check out all of the cool cards offered by Immagine, a locally owned small business in Ashland.  Unique kid art, photography and original artwork on cards that are less expensive than Hallmark cards. Also available at Gotta Have it Gifts

Order printable and framable art. 

The featured image above is available on “Simply Being Mommy” blog.  Etsy is also a good source for printable art.  

Cook-Out (socially distancing, of course).

Want to feel “normal” again?  Spread out, then cook-out with a small group of family and friends.
