It's a Pretzel Party and this one is for the dads- Happy Father's Day. Yep. Big, soft pretzels and lots of puns. What dad wouldn't want this kind of celebration?
This theme works for any type of party however, dads seem to love pretzels the most. If you're a beer drinking family, add beer to your pretzel menu, if not, no worries. We had lemonade and loved it.

The trick to making this fast and simple is to use the store-bought Auntie Anne's frozen pretzels found at any grocery store. They only take a few minutes to heat up and they're delicious.

Auntie Anne's Pretzels for Father's Day

I made 4 different pretzel toppings available: butter, cheese, hot mustard and cinnamon & sugar. 
I kept these toppings warm using my
(aff. link) butter warmers. I added bigger ceramic dishes to the top of the tea-lighted racks. It worked perfectly.

Printed labels helped identify each topping. The big surprise of the party was that almost everyone wanted butter with cinnamon and sugar on their pretzel. Guess I didn't need so many toppings?

I printed off lots of pretzel puns and displayed them inside (aff. link) clear plastic display frames. Naturally, some were better than others.

I made a few dessert pretzel recipes to go with the party. I'm sure you've tried these Rolo Pretzel Bites, haven't you? And what about this Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bark? Both are delicious!

I made a simple Father's Day pennant banner using the slick (aff. link) Banner Punch Board and my (aff. link) Cricut machine to cut the letters. These tools make banner making fast!

Table decor included these fun candy dishes with pretzels and Tootsie Rolls. My son made these pretzel balloons.

Can you believe that you can make pretzels from a warmed up Tootsie Roll? It's true! Unwrap, then warm them up in the microwave for 10-12 seconds and mold them into a pretzel shape. Add white sprinkles to look like salt.

I also added a fun activity to the table with cups of mini marshmallows and pretzel sticks. Each guest was challenged to build something with their supplies.

The dads did pretty well with this challenge. 

We finished off our party with a little photo shoot.
I used one blue tablecloth hung on a wall and decorated it with streamers and ribbons. Props were big glasses and balloons.
