Throwing the Veteran’s Day Celebration of the Year
The day our nation has set aside to honor American veterans is quickly approaching, and it’s time to start planning your Veteran’s Day celebration. From tents to flatware, we carry the largest selection of products to choose from to help make your party the social event of the year. However you choose to honor our veterans this season, make it a fun and unique gathering and consider one of the following top 5 event ideas below:
Should the weather allow, an outdoor barbeque is a fantastic idea for a Veteran’s Day party. Consider renting these tents to shield your guests from the elements and bring a more polished look to the atmosphere. Decorate with twinkling lights, American flags, and banners, and give your guests something to do with fun outdoor activities like volleyball, horseshoes, mini golf, or corn hole.
For an experience that will definitely leave a good impression on guests and is a fun way of showing your appreciation for those who have served, consider an outdoor cinema. Showing films that have a focus on the American soldier and honors the fallen is a thoughtful way of bringing people together in remembrance and celebration. Providing movie concessions like popcorn and nachos will leave your guests feeling like they really have stepped into a 5-star cinema. Patriotic themed drinks proudly displaying the red, white, and blue are also a great touch!
Whether you decide on a live band, or play your favorite tunes over the stereo, gathering friends, family, and veterans from your community to enjoy time on the dance floor is always a fun idea. Throughout the years, music has always served as a great way of honoring our country and many find they can relax and unwind through swaying across the dance floor. Events like these can also be used as means to fundraise for veterans and service members in need, making your event all the more special.
A potluck supper, in which guests come together and each brings a dish special to them and their families, is an affordable and wholesome idea for a Veteran’s Day gathering. An event such as this allows for hosting indoors or out and leaves the door wide open for a vast range of activities and décor ideas. It’s a perfect way to send your favorite veteran home with a full belly, and maybe even a tray of delicious leftovers!
Generally, the one thing people will remember the most about any event you host is how much fun they had. A great way to tie this into honoring veterans this season is offering activities such as raffles, poker, and even carnival games. Events such as these can also be used as means to bring in major fundraising if you choose to donate to a cause in honor of American Soldiers, leaving you and your guests with a feeling of goodwill and day full of smiles!
