So D is being promoted to CPT on June 1 along with another 1LT from his battalion. His wife and I were chatting yesterday about what we should do for the reception after the ceremony. We couldn't really decide what kind of food we wanted to do and I think we've settled on making stuff.
Its kind of stressing me out a bit since the movers are supposed to be at our house on the 2nd to pack everything up. We just have a lot going on the next few weeks!
Here's what we're planning on serving:
We are ordering the cake from the commissary and I'm planning to pick up most of the food and drinks at Costco early next week. The unit has a full kitchen so we're going to stick the ham in the oven before the ceremony to heat it through since we're planning on getting one that is pre-cooked.
Have you ever planned a reception like this? What kind of food did you serve? Is there anything you would enjoy seeing at a reception?
