The men in our lives rarely get thought of when we enter party planning mood. After all, the ribbons, pastel colours, and flowers don’t exactly scream “man.” But with Father’s Day approaching we put the focus on the fellas on our newest episode on Petite & Sweet TV. This week, our wonderful partner, Creative Bag and ourselves will put all our girly instincts aside to teach you how to plan an event for that special man in your life. Whether it’s for Father’s day, a birthday, anniversary, or just simply because, make him feel special with these simple tricks.
We wanted to show our viewers how simple it can be to create a theme that the men would appreciate. We chose to focus on a “Business Man” theme for our first table. As always, we took our inspirations, including cigars, newspapers, suits, and oranges and created a mood board to organize our thoughts.
It’s a fact that all men love food, but the “Business Man” tends to enjoy the finer things in life. Keeping our tale sophisticated, we placed chocolate covered almonds in glass jars, chocolate cupcakes with orange zest buttercream topped with pistachios, and chocolate cigars on our table. Treat your guy to delicious cupcakes by following the recipe below!
This week we brought a special guest on the show, Sabrina Greer, who designed a specialty cocktail for our “Business Man.” Take a look below for a recipe to the delicious Not-So-Old-Fashioned signature cocktail with bourbon and orange zest.
Whether they enjoy it or not, the business men in our lives wear suits daily and often read the paper. To add a special touch to this table, we covered our table with Newspaper printed wrapping paper. We also placed napkins folded as dress shirts on the table. To learn how you can create these original napkins at home, follow the six easy steps below.
Printables are a must on any Petite & Sweet table as they add an element of creativity. We wanted the guys to have some fun at his party, so we created some funny photo-booth props that you can download and print for free below!

When the business day is over, there are few men who wouldn’t want to unwind by watching a game on the couch. For our second table, we took cues from favourite sports like golf and baseball as well as the colours white, green, and red.
This table featured delicious chocolate covered bacon, chocolate cupcakes, white chocolate caramelized ‘baseball’ macarons that we drew on with red edible marker, and cake pops. Bacon is definitely an all time favourite food, if you’d like to make chocolate covered bacon at home, just follow the recipe below.
Sabrina Greer worked her magic once again to create a specialty cocktail called The Gold Medal. Made with tons of cold beer and topped with pickles and more bacon, the lucky guy in your life will definitely owe you one when you make him this satisfying drink by following the recipe below.
To customize this table, we used wooden risers from Creative Bag, and painted them green with white field lines to complete our “Sporty Dad” look.
Once again, for a little fun, we created a large foam finger with MVD (most valuable dad or most valuable dude) written on it. You can download the printables for free below!
