Thanking Dad This Father’s Day: Homestyle!

Family, Food, Home, Home Improvement

You may wish to help your little ones celebrate the main man in your life this coming Father’s Day. Consider our Home Style Ideas!

Can you think of a better way to start the day off for Dad other than breakfast in bed?
Have the kids secretly prepare the place setting or breakfast tray the night before.
Embellish setting with homemade Father’s Day card and flowers.

Encourage your children to prepare Gifts of Home Service Certificates for home chores below.

Dad works so hard around the house taking care of things and today is his special home day
where he literally does not have to lift a finger around the property.

If your children are an appropriate age, mowing the lawn for Dad for would be greatly appreciated!
Set up his Dad Home Throne – decorated Lawn Chair where he can pass on home maintenance wisdom directly to the future generation.

Now that the lawn is mowed, it’s time to wash the car. Have the kids decorate homemade ‘Dad Car Wash’ signs that they display at their car wash station (don’t forget to move Dad’s Home Throne to a strategic location where Dad can view all of the festivities)!
Have the kids start on the inside gathering all of their discarded possessions putting everything in its place. Now it’s time to clean the glass and wipe down the interior before the outside bubbly car wash begins!

After all of this hard work it is time for a home-made lemonade treat!
Have the kids squeeze the lemons, add the water and sugar to Dad’s specifications.
Because Dad is the cherry on top at home and pretty much everywhere else – top with a cherry.

While Dad is resting have the kids start to prepare a giant sub-style sandwich with all of Dad’s favourite fixings.
Purchase an uncut loaf of bread to prepare this homestyle feast! Slice and serve to the entire crew.

Have the kids do a nature walk around your home with Dad allowing him to explain the various flora and fauna observable from your property.

Set up croquet or badminton in the back yard of your home and let the games begin!
Be sure to let Dad win a few 🙂

For dinner set up Dad’s Burger Bar in your home kitchen featuring a delectable array of Dad’s favourite fixings. If Dad likes it hot, consider supplying a few peppers or speciality cheeses for Dad to select from.
See our list of topping favourites on page 3 for inspiration.

After all this eating it may be time to retool and give Dad his new favourite replacement power tool as his Father’s Day Gift.

Once clean up is complete set up of Outside Movie Night is a must as there are so many child-friendly movies that celebrate the importance of Dad.

Move Dad’s throne to ensure that he has a prime viewing position.

Below are just a few movie suggestions by Dad type.

Action DadGuardian’ of the Galaxy Vol 2 – where the protagonist searches for his long-lost father.
Single DadWe Bought A Zoo – single Dads will be inspired by this Dad’s journey
Eccentric DadCaptain Fantastic – demonstrating that there are all different types of Dads.
Fun DadMrs. Doubtfire – full of fun and heart.
Determined DadFinding Nemo

Wishing you and your Dad the very best Home-style Celebration this Father’s Day!

We were connected with Re/Max Penticton Realty through friends of ours and were not disappointed. We decided to make the move to Penticton last winter and were in contact with our agent, Phil, immediately. He and his team were very helpful every step of the way. Would highly recommend Re/Max Penticton Realty to anyone!!

Very happy with our house purchase! We used Phil Fox as our realtor and he helped us find a good quality home, in an excellent location, under a short timeline, during a crazy time in the real estate market. Would recommend to anyone looking for a responsive and caring realtor.

We are from out of the area so I relied upon a trusted realtor to help me choose a realtor in the Penticton area, for the sale of a home on behalf of a family estate. We have put Karrie and Paul Grewal through every challenge imaginable, and each and every time, I come away stunned by their knowledge, their resourcefulness, their willingness to help in ways that are so beyond the call, and equally their patience and good cheer with my endless requests. To say they're accommodating is a gross understatement. Do yourself a favor - list with Karrie and Paul Grewal. You will be so glad you did!

Paralleling those skills with your transparent and caring nature and work ethic makes you’re team special.

Well first we started with Eileen who gave us a real good overview of the different cities in the South Okanogan. Then, to look in Penticton, we dealt with Karrie Grewal. Very pleasant and informative, she told us about all the 55 plus places in Penticton and their characteristics' - this was very helpful in our search.She narrowed it down so that we only got listings we were interested in. Karrie and her husband showed us a couple of places. Even though they were very busy they met our restrictive timelines. She helped us with an offer on one place which got too competitive. Then on the way home we got a listing we liked and so her and her husband did a 'facetime' tour of the location. She helped us put in a great offer that saved us money and we got the place.On possession day she met us there but the keys wouldn't work because someone locked the screen door so she called around and resolved the issue within an hour.Later we got a beautiful basket of wine and goodies. Thank you team, especially you Karrie.

We found Rhonda Van Der Veer and she was super responsive and helpful in giving us information about the Penticton area. We were able to find a condo and close with relative ease. If you are looking for a realtor I would highly recommend Rhonda.

We have enjoyed the professional real estate services of Ernie Sheridan at Re/Max Penticton for not one but two homes in the past. Ernie and staff are just wonderful to work with...always concerned that our wishes and needs in both buying and selling were met and ensuring that we were always kept up to date on details. Because Penticton has been Ernie's home for many years, he has all the knowledge and experience that you need to move within the Okanagan Valley.

My wife and I had the awesome experience of working with Bruce Dilley and his knowledge of the market and previous experience as a contractor really allowed us to have peace of mind as we made our purchase and move during these uncertain times. Highly highly recommend Bruce and the entire team at RE/MAX Penticton!

What a great welcome to Penticton!! Karrie and Paul went out of their way to show us all the different areas of Penticton before we made our decision where to live. Even though the Covid 19 pandemic made it more difficult, Karrie was always able to make timely appointments for viewings whilst taking care to uphold all the required health restrictions for both seller and buyer (providing us with sanitizers, masks, and bootees). Karrie also had an uncanny ability to recognize what I liked and didn't like about about a place. She and Paul were always available, no matter how often we had questions or concerns, always professional, and always friendly.
