Time now to bring the Army Themed Party I threw for my sons’ birthday together!
I decided early on in the year that I would throw my son an Army Themed Party, but as I was so busy with work I left it quite late to do any of the organising, so just a few days before I sent all the family an invitation.
I decorated the buffet table with some store bought decorations and stuff I shopped from home ;) Anything green, cream or brown was going to work!
Instead of your typical party food (junk!) I cooked a proper meal of Major Meatballs and Private Pasta with Sergeant Salad and General Garlic Bread on the side ^_^ The meatballs were my recipe for Herby Turkey Meatballs, but I used beef instead as that was what I had in the fridge.
I also made some cookie ‘landmines’ by decorating some Oreos with frosting and sprinkles, exactly the same way as I did for Valentine’s Day.
I created some printables, as I just love to do, to tie in with the army theme including napkin wrappers which were used to hold together bundles of green cutlery and napkins.
The wrappers also went around the plain cups that I bought – with space for people to write their names – we are always mixing up drinks in this house so I thought this was a fab idea!
And that’s another year’s party for my son…last year it was a Nintendo Themed Party which was a lot of fun, a little more low key this year, but fun all the same. Don’t know how long I’ll get away with these sorts of parties since next birthday he’ll be 15!! But I’ll try :D

If you wish to link to, pin or share my printables, that is cool, as long as a link back to the blog post is shown and the watermarks are kept intact. Colours may vary slightly on printing due to different screen and printer settings. If you use any of my printables it would be awesome to know about it!
