Host The Perfect Welcome Home Military Party: Stress-free Frolics and Fun
Few people understand the ups and downs of everyday life better than military personnel and their families. From the life and death risks of active duty deployments (which last anywhere from 30 days to 13 months) to the stress those absences create on loved ones, it is not surprising that medical, social, and emotional health issues frequently arise among active duty, veteran personnel, and their families. The homecoming of a member of the armed forces is cause for celebration for family, friends and sometimes an entire town.
A Few Considerations For A Welcome Home Party
A military welcome home party has a few special considerations not found at your average birthday bash or anniversary event. Here are six ways to make a military welcome home truly welcoming:
A little help from the experts
A V Party Rentals takes the stress out of delivery, set-up, and tear-down of such basics as tents, tables, chairs, linens, dance floors, stages, and sound equipment. We work with your food and beverage vendors, musicians, florists, and other vendors to ensure everything is in place at the right time.
Be sensitive to sound and light
Returning veterans exposed to flash bombs and explosive devices may find celebratory sounds of music, strobe lighting and fireworks disturbing. Ask before including these in the party.
A military themed-party? Maybe not
Veterans on active duty see enough camouflage, combat gear, and red, white and blue for a lifetime. Ask the family what other interests and hobbies the service member has, and plan the party based on a more personal interest.
A place for the kids
Give the non-service spouse a break (and time to celebrate) with a kids-only play zone. The area is within view of adult supervision, but with games, contests, and food booths just for the young ones. Check out our extensive assortment of games.
Timing is everything
Everyone is anxious to show thanks and gratitude to returning service members. Keep their travel time and distance in mind when planning the welcome party. Active duty personnel need re-adjustment time after spending months in foreign countries, operating in various time zones.

As long as men and women serve this country in the line of duty, there will always be a need for a warm welcome home. A V Party Rentals is proud to provide event solutions to those who fight, fly, sail.
