Design Tips: Celebrate Dad With Style

Whether you throw a party for dad or take him out fishing, we have a few tips to make your day special with a little coastal style.

Nautical decor Dad's celebration

Have a bash to celebrate Dad. Throw a nautical themed party for dad and decorate with authentic ship decor like vintage lanterns, buoys, ship wheels and boat stripe coastal linens.

Fishing by the shore in Florida

Take Dad fishing. You don't have to go all out with a fishing charter. Keep it simple, pack some of his favorite snacks, get some bait and grab the fishing poles. Dad will appreciate being by the sea with a pole in the water. Sometimes it's the little things. 

Surf N Turf Burger

Make his favorite fresh catch or low boil.  Check our blog for more great seaside recipes from the galley at Our Boat House. This surf n turf burger will be a big hit!


1/2 lb lobster meat (cooked, chopped into 1/4-inch pieces)
2 tbsps mayonnaise (plus more for assembling) ? Tasty tip
1 lemon
1 tsp juice
1 tbsp chives (finely chopped)
ground black pepper
kosher salt
20 ozs ground beef (freshly, divided into four 5-ounce patties)
4 hamburger buns (toasted)
4 slices tomatoes
4 leaves green leaf lettuce
8 slices cooked bacon (crisply)


Combine lobster, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and chives in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to use.

When ready to serve, season burger patties generously with salt and pepper and cook burgers to desired doneness on a hot grill or in a skillet on the stovetop, 125°F for medium rare or 135°F for medium, topping with cheese for last minute of cooking. Let burger patties rest for 5 minutes off heat.

Top bottom buns with mayonnaise, tomato, and lettuce. Top with burger patty, then divide lobster salad mixture evenly between burgers. Top each burger with 2 slices bacon. Close burgers and serve immediately.

Give Dad a great sea inspired gift he will love.  Here are a few of our favorite picks for Dad.
