Army Camouflage Themed Birthday Party- Kara’s Party Ideas Shop

I styled this ARMY CAMOUFLAGE THEMED BIRTHDAY PARTY awhile back, and am excited to finally post about it today!

I set the party up on a regular table, covered in an actual army navy blanket. Above the table was a mock army tent, made out of pvc pipe and pieces of a tent purchased from the Army Navy Supply Store! I went to an antique shop and found old army filing cabinets and bullet boxes, which I used on top of the table for the various party items to sit on!

Watch this video from my show last season to see first hand how to create some of the DIY elements from the party, I also show you how to create an out-of-the-box DIY army themed invitation- using a plastic army man and a parachute!

Party Planning Process / Description

Cupcakes from Dippidee were dressed up with army themed cupcake liners & army themed candles from my shop

The cake topper was so easy to make! I simply blew up a grenade water balloon from my shop with air {instead of water} and tied it to a wooden dowel. I then inserted the dowel into a cute chocolate cake from Dippidee

Activity sheets and plastic parachute army men from my shop sat atop one of the ammo boxes, along with a bandana {also available in the shop} filled with “rations”. The tags were simple to make. I used burlap from my shop and rope…

Aren’t these gummy army men from my shop the cutest?!…

Brown paper sacks from the shop were easily made into favor bags. We added plastic doggy tags to the front of each bag, and filled the bag with army themed favors and toys from the shop. On top of it all was fun green and tan krinkle shred, also available in my shop

Clear plastic paint pails from my shop were filled with army themed toys {also available in my shop}…

The fun army truck boxes were set out for each guest to fill. I inserted brown swirl lollipops from my shop into the top of each box…

I set out a lot of the cute party items on an actual army tray {purchased at the Army Navy store}.¬†Army blow outs, parachute men, gummy candies &¬†grenade balloons from Kara’s Party Ideas Shop

We used the Top Secret Army tins from my shop as lunch pails labeled as “MRE’s”!

Inside…an actual MRE along with some snack cookies. Lunch pails, burlap, brown bakers twine & krinkle shred from the Kara’s Party Ideas Shop

Army / camouflage drink containers from the shop were dressed up with cold “winner” metals, also from the shop. The little guests loved them!

“Shrapnel” was simply made with popcorn and green M&M’s!

We cut inexpensive camouflage bandanas from my shop to make the army pennant flag banner that hung across the front of the table…

Another favorite party item was the fun child binoculars from my shop

And you can’t have a party without balloons! These army themed balloons can be purchased in the Kara’s Party Ideas Shop!

I put juice inside an army green gas can! Don’t worry, the can was brand new, and had never been used. It was washed and as clean as could be :]. Butter mint creams, army themed drink containers, clear plastic treat pail, paper plates & napkins available in Kara’s Party Ideas Shop.

We also cut up bandanas into strips used to tie the favor bags together on top…

The kids looked adorable in these child size army hats available in my shop…

Clear plastic tins available in the KPI shop…

    This is truly amazing! I’m just curious, how much do you charge for all that hard work? I do games & activities at kids birthdays, similar to bringing a daycamp to the party. I apply themes and such, but THIS is awesome!!!!

    Thanks!
