You should do what feels right for you. Grief is different for everyone, and it changes over time. You may feel like honoring your dad with a party next year-- or not. Either way is fine. It's ok to feel sadness, though. It's not healthy to hold it back, and if that means crying non-stop for a long time, that's what you do.
When my dad died, two years ago, I just cried through my day. Diapered the baby, washed the dishes, made dinner, etc., all while crying. I still sit down every so often and cry really hard, as if it just happened yesterday.
Big hugs to you,
