Our nation’s first Father’s Day was celebrated in 1910 – over 100 years ago. In the USA it is celebrated on the third Sunday of June. However in Europe and Latin America, fathers are honored on St. Josephs Day, a traditional Catholic holiday that falls on March 19. For Americans, this special day is often filled with shared meals with loved ones, and a day of relaxation. We found some clever DIY projects to inspire you to show appreciation for the father figure in your life. And of course, from our end, no celebration is complete without some gorgeous linens to set the scene!
