Military Man Party
We’re taking a break from all the Valentine’s “red, pink, and girly things” for this 100% boy party! We’re talking Military with camouflage to the max! Growing up with a big brother, I had my fair share of GI Joe time so this party looks like a BLAST. How neat are those camouflage cookies?! They were made by Sara of Dandy Delights. Genevieve Le Bel of Celebrate TODAY, the superchick way did such an outstanding job with this party! Her son, Niko (9), is into all things military, war games, Nerf guns, and paint ball games so this party definitely fit his style!
Genevieve incorporated items from her army supply store as well as her local party store. The ammunition boxes, camo netting and old bullets were real! She shared some of the details about all the “provisions”. “Hats were ‘flipped” and used as vessels for snacks! Treats included cleverly labeled snacks! Camouflaged cake pops (made by me!) were called “cake bombs”, trail mix was transformed into “military mix”, popcorn with camo colored M&Ms and jelly beans was called “camo corn”! We also had Camo Swirly lollipops, dark hot chocolate cupcakes, custom iced cookies and bottled root beer! Mini doughnuts (by dough a deer) , Shelled peanuts, candy… I mean it went on and on!”
She also created mini versions of her Kandy Kones (patent pending) and used them as “cake toppers! The kones were filled with chocolate chips! Extra chocolate is ALWAYS a good idea!
Genevieve said the boys had lots of fun at the party! “The boys played tug-a-war in the rain! They did target shooting with paintball guns! We also invited a veteran to come talk to the boys about his experiences!!! Oh, and we asked a cadet friend to deliver the birthday gift which was authentic army fatigues!!!”
The party ended with super fun favors ,“Boxes filled with silver and gold foiled candy with matching stickers! Each child also got to take home a plastic grenade and the “body target” the shot with paint ball guns!’
