I wanted to make Fathers Day ideas a little more interesting this year, so I did a Duck Dynasty themed party. First, a few weeks prior to the event I got a tote and started collecting items for my themed party. I looked around the house to see if I could find anything that goes with my theme. I try not to spend too much money and keep it simple yet fun.
Here are some ideas for this style party.
Dollar Store Items
I went to the Dollar Store and found a string of lights in the shape of green leaves. This will go good on the table-scape. Here is the Dollar Store list
- Black Plastic Travel Mug – I ran a strip of Camouflage tape around the center.
- Camouflage Tape – From the Dollar Zone in Target.
- Green Drinking Plastic Cups
- Craft Moss – To spread around table.
- Plastic Pitcher – I ran a camouflage strip around this and labeled it Sweet Tea!
- Camouflage Big Candy Bar – Found a candy bar with camouflage design on it.
- Camouflage Gloves
- Chip Clips – I covered plain clips with Camouflage scrapbook paper.
- Tan Grass Skirt – For table decor.
- Green Liquorice

Craft How We Put it all Together
A lot of my Fathers Day ideas for this party were from Pinterest. Some were just my good ol’ ideas. I enjoyed this party because our family is a fan of the show.
It was a easy theme to find items for. I looked for items the were not only duck themed but nature themed. I kept the colors greens, browns, tans, mostly earthy colors.
We did a cookout, so the food was simple. Hot dogs, hamburgers, grilled corn, cheesy potato casserole and coleslaw. I took scrapbook paper and wrapped a band around some water bottles. I cut out duck silhouette’s and glued them on and wrote ” Duck Commander” I had more bottles and after I took the photo’s I put them on ice in a green bucket.
The cupcakes were iced to look camouflaged. I put some white icing in a bowl and added a few green drops of food coloring.I took a knife and barely swirled the icing around. I then added a spoon full of chocolate icing and swirled a little. It then started to look like camouflage. Don’t over stir it. They ended up being the perfect Fathers Day decoration!
I made a hanging sign across the front of my table and I cutout circles from scrapbook paper and wrote Quack on it. I hole punched them and strung them through twine.
The cupcake picks I covered with camouflage paper. I then wrote some of the shows sayings on them. I wrote ” Happy Happy Happy”, ” Quack Quack Quack” and ” Hey Jack! “.
After all of this, most of our Fathers Day ideas and planning went over well and Dad was very surprised.
