We are on a mission to celebrate "name" birthday
Base: Use your last name i.e.: Boardman Army Base
(don't let my hubby know I used our last name with Army next too it!)
Time: use 24 hour clock
RSVP: Base Commanding Officer
Wear your camouflage clothes and be prepared for troop training.
Green, black, and tan balloons and streamers. Hit the surplus stores or your garage for netting, tarps, ammo boxes and other interesting things. Cover the table with a canvas tarp. Serve the cake on tin plates. Serve other foods out of helmets and drinks from an aluminum coffee pot. If you have one, use an old canvas tent or a canvas tarp to shade the food area. Use canvas cots for seating.
Can't See Me Cake: Sheet cake decorated in camouflage. Use splashes of dark green, tan and black.
Decorate a sheet cake with a terrain type look. Add Army men or other troops.
To hold the goodies use camouflage bandanas, green bags or plastic helmets. Put in Army men, compass, toy binoculars, canteen, paper airplanes, dog tags (make with string or yarn and tag board covered with foil, add their names with permanent marker). If not too much, you could even purchase olive colored shirts.
