Military Homecoming – Welcome Them Back With Confetti
Posted by Genesis Samson on 05/21/13
There’s nothing harder than watching your loved ones, whether it’s your husband, your sister, or your father, ship overseas and head off to war. And there’s no better moment in the entire world then that moment they return home safe and hold you in their arms.
Military homecomings are time-honored traditions; a time for family and friends to welcome home the troops and celebrate being together once again. Flutter FETTI has just what you need to make this celebration one to remember:
Be Patriotic – What better way to welcome home the troops than with traditional American-themed merriment? Come in waving American flags and paint a large white banner with red and blue letters spelling out “Welcome Home”. Bring delicious homemade goodies like red and blue cupcakes or your loved one’s favorite homemade dessert, like apple pie or blueberry crumble. And the moment he or she gets close to you, shower your loved one with celebratory red, white and blue tissue Flutter FETTI from 14” Confetti Sticks. It’ll look patriotic and pretty all at the same time!
Be Personal – Homecomings are emotional times. You’ve spent many months staring at photos, remembering the good times, and praying for safety. So when the time comes, you want it to be personal – you want to cherish that important moment. Bring a camera to capture the moment and bring a gift that you’ve been waiting to give. Have all your family and friends sign congratulating comments on his or her favorite photo or book. Shoot off 6” Flutter Flickers in his or her favorite color and host a small ceremony at a local restaurant or bar where a favorite drink is on special. Whatever you do, make it intimate and make it personal because their homecomings really are that important!
Be Public – While some people prefer a private family affair, others like to make a big public announcement. Larger towns and cities, many with multiple troops coming home, will organize a big parade for you to join. Show your support at the parade by letting off 18” Airless Launchers with tissue Flutter FETTI in black and gold, or gold and dark blue, or gold and scarlet depending on the military branch you represent. When there’s no parade, you can throw a party at a big function hall for all your family, friends, and neighbors to attend (a potluck is often an inexpensive way to do it). By making it a big public event, you also make it easy for everyone to join in the celebration. You’ll be amazed and honored by how many people really do care!
