5 Great Welcome home ideas for husbands.

Don’t know how to welcome your husband back home after a long time, try out any of these 5 great welcome home ideas to tell your hubby “welcome back home”.

1. Surprise welcome home party.

Imagine the look of pleasant surprise and joy that would spread across his face to open the door to surprise shouts of “welcome back home”. This welcome home idea is especially fitting if your husband has been away for what is a considerable length of time, maybe on military duty or for whatever reason. Coming back to such a surprise party would warm his heart and show him just how much everyone has missed him.

Since you know when he will be coming back, let it not just be any return. Make it a return like no other. Get all his close friends and friends of the family together and give him an unforgettable return home. He may be exhausted when he comes back but being around all his close friends and family would immediately infuse him with fresh energy to at least enjoy the surprise party.

The trick to this party though is to not let it go on for a long time. Remember he has likely been on a long journey and is very likely to be exhausted and wants to rest. So, make it short and sweet. It can be as simple as everyone screaming “Surprise! Welcome home! and hugging him, having light snacks, and saying their goodbyes. You can then have an elaborate welcome back home party the next day or two days after.

Have the party venue decorated with memorabilia of his life with the family and friends. This will create the fitting sense of nostalgia that should envelop the party and remind everyone of what joy it is to have him home with everyone, and especially you. If he likes themed parties, you can make it his favorite themed party.

You can have this party at home if your house is big enough to take all your guests, or you can hire out an inexpensive community hall. Whatever option works best for you, a welcome back home party is a great option if you have a lot of people to celebrate his return home with.
