If plenty of notice allows, making formal plans for a solider homecoming party is sure to be a worthwhile and meaningful celebration. A welcome home party will be something a returning military member will remember forever. And, it will be the perfect opportunity for them to catch up with all those who they left behind while deployed. Plan to fire up the grill and celebrate with all-American fare from off the barbecue, homey side dishes and apple pie for dessert – or center the menu around the soldier’s favorite foods. To decorate the party space, display the American flag prominently, and have lots of other red, white and blue patriotic décor too. With a little bit of planning, the party will be a star-spangled day for your American hero!
