This is so foreign to me. MH and I dont eff with each other's uniforms. The one time I sent him to the tailor to get stuff seen on, he got my rank sewn and not my name tape. Um, no. Different branches so he didn't get it.
I think we'd do a lot better with specific questions.
This was sort of my theme, sans the costume aspect. I did Mason jars with hydrangeas and vellum frame centerpieces.I bought inexpensive frames at Ikea, H attached them in a triad, and I had 10 tables, so I named each after a great American politician or a war hero (or both). I put the table number, a photo of them, and a quote of theirs that was particularly patriotic. I loved it. So for example, Table 2 was George McGovern. I used this photo and a quoteThey were a hit! I had an Eisenhower table, a whole bunch. Individual Marine heroes, etc. If you search vellum frame centerpieces, you'll find instructions. The candles on the inside were battery operated flameless candles. I forgot where I found them, but they were hella cheap.
Oh God, don't send him weird stuff while he's at Basic. They make you open the boxes in front of everyone. Send him moleskin. Send him authorized socks. Send him pens. Send him letters. But definitely wait until he's out of Basic/AIT to send the crazy stuff. Even at OCS they still checked our packages.
