After serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for the past 1 1/2 years, my daughter, Hilary, has returned from the New Jersey Morristown mission! I loved having her serve but I am SO happy to have her home. If you know me, you know that one of my favorite things to do is to throw a party and here is what we did for her WELCOME HOME and also for her homecoming (included are four free printables)..
The WELCOME HOME sign next to the clock was downloaded from Pig and Paint and then just printed in black and white. Welcome Home banner
The WELCOME HOME BANNER is a free download and you can get that HERE! Print as a color copy on white paper.
This darling (and free) WELCOME HOME printable comes from “Happiness is Homemade” blog…
My little picture taker ended up with three scrapbooks… finished the last one the morning she got home. Whew!
The RETURNED WITH HONOR banner is another free DOWNLOAD. Just print as a color copy on white paper and cut out.
I had our custom banner printed at ZURCHERS. I called everyone from Staples to sign companies and they were the best price and so easy to work with.
I bought a blank sign from Home Depot, covered it with wrapping paper, andI had the center printed at HELP U MAIL (my favorite place for printing anything), Thank you Kevin for all the printables seen here!!
Friends and family make posters and we lined the streets coming into our neighborhood! pic at airport The airport… the FINISH LINE BANNER can also be downloaded for free HERE (also printed at Help U Mail).
We decided to go with Mexican food for the homecoming since Hilary was a spanish speaking missionary (and we love Costa Vida) and the free NAME CARD printables for both small pork salads and our dessert table are HERE.
Water bottles… I wish I would have taken a picture with all three labels.
After a year and a half… there is nothing better than seeing my girl come down that escalator and being able to hug her again! Welcome Home Hilary and we’re so proud of you and what a great missionary you have been!
