On May 31, 2013 my husband retired from active duty as a lt. colonal in the german air force. Since we had not truly had a big party in about 24 years(our wedding was the last really big bash), we decided a retirement party was in order! Of course, for all of you who know me, I started planning like almost a year in advance!
I decided the theme colors would be blue for the airforce. Blue candles, blue ballons, blue candy and of course lots of blue in the goodie bags....because you are never to old for goodie bags!
Step One......order rubber duckies at BUCK A DUCK. COM
Step Two......be lucky enough to fly to Chicago and while there go shopping at party express. My sister and I had a great time picking out fun favors... We found whirly birds(my husband was a helicopter pilot), Waterpistols(every soldier has a gun.), Compass Rings for the wives(so that they always can find their husbands...), and my sister´s favorite parachute men.
Step Three.....fly back to Berlin and get busy!!!!
My good ole shredder(thanks Michele) made perfect party favor bag stuffing material
packed and ready
40 Bags in all....
Make sure to stop by again for more posts about the party
Happy Days Everyone!
