Mason, my soon to be 5 year old son (gasp! Is it really possible that my sweet little babe is turning 5 in two short months?!?) requested an Army themed birthday party this year. He makes me laugh because he is JUST like me. As soon as he made that announcement he started making plans on what he wanted included. Example: “Mom, can you find those Army Men with the sheets above their heads, you know, the ‘chutes? I want those in the goody bags please. Wouldn’t that be cool?” Yup, I think I’ll keep him!
I brainstormed for a short while on the invitations… and when I say brainstormed, I really mean browsed Pinterest. I saw a handful of invites and really liked one that was a draft notice. I closed my browser and opened Illustrator with a “draft notice” style in mind and then ended up with these:
These are adorable! You are so creative!

These are great. I made dog tags with my Cricut, some ARMY stickers, and card stock for my twin boys to wear during their party. Since they were “Baby A” and “Baby B” while I was pregnant with them, I made their “identification number” on the back of their tags “21503A” and “21503B”…their birthday and an “a” and “b” to identify them. It was fun. They still have them.
So cute! And what a great momento for them! I’m going to purchase real engraved dog tags as favors. I found a site where they are only $2.45 per steel tag and ball chain, I thought that was reasonable!
Kim, what website did you find tags at?
I got them through http://www.gotags.com.
O my! So adorable!! 🙂

My twins had a pink/green camo army party in March. The weather was the only negative – it rained which meant we had to have it indoors but it was still a lot of fun. You can see it here: http://www.dukesandduchesses.com/2012/03/army-boot-camp-party.html
I LOVE your mess hall idea! I didn’t even think of that! And where did you find the Army helmets? The pink bows were such a great touch. You did an amazing job! Thanks for sharing.
