    Hello If you threw a party for your SO before they deployed

    Advertisements
    What stuff did you do? Was it just a grilling thing? Did you have any decor? Any patriotic ideas for foods/decor?

    DH and I are throwing a "see ya later" party sometime end of September probably. And I'm trying to figure out what kind of stuff to have there. I devoured ideas from pinterest including white frosting dipped strawberries with blue dyed sugar bottoms and similar stuff, now I'm asking you ladies.

    TIA!!!

    Once more into the fray...
    Into the last good fight I'll ever know.
    Live or die on this day...
    Live and die on this day.

    We just had a huge grill out with lots of food & alcohol.
    And I believe there was cake also.

    We usually do a bbq and a LOT of alcohol. We set up for beer pong and set up the game systems downstairs. It's a good time. We don't really decorate mostly because we know that A) No one would appreciate the money or time spent on it and B) Most people would be too drunk to notice

    We had a party at a restaurant for the deployment going away. We also have partys for when people separate. Those are also at a restaurant and we all sign a Seabee Flag. All of DH's friends are gone now so our party is going to disney world!
