My son is leaving for Army Basic Training in mid-October; I am having a going away open house for him in the (finished) basement of our church. I need decorating and food ideas, please. His aunt is doing the cake.

Food: Sloppy Joes, salads, and chips. Decorations: Balloon bouquets in red, white, and blue and maybe an occasional silver mixed in. At fabric stores a lot of the time they have fabric panels with the different military logos on them. Most of the time they are made out of polar fleece. You could buy one of these for no more than $15.00 and hang that on one wall, and then it could be used as a throw or wall hanging in his room at home, until he has someplace to take it. This fabric requires no hemming as it doesn't fray.

Does he know he is getting a party? My hubby is retired army I asked him what he suggests. Because they can't add salt and spices to the food and there is no pizza, burgers, or fried chicken things of that nature during basic, he suggests you ask what his favorite food is and what he wants because he will miss them!

Decorations don't have to be much, he will be happy everyone is there to support him!
