Welcome Home Ideas

Filed under General

welcome home signKate has sent in the following request. Do any of our readers have any ideas?

My brother is bringing his new girlfriend home to england from america both early 30′s

I would like to make the welcome home special – any ideas?

If you have any ideas please drop them in the box below.

Welcome home signs

One rather obvious way would be to post welcome home signs on lamp posts and at street junctions all of the way to the house. This way they would see them on their journey to the house.

Arrange a limousine

You could arrange for them to be picked up from the airport by a limousine. I always fancied having someone meet me with one of those airport signs at the airport. (Sent in by Amy)

How about a bottle of champagne on ice?

You could bake a cake and put the words “Welcome home” on top of the cake.

One thing to watch out for would be to not make a big meal. People could well have eaten on the plane, or feel very joggled after a long journey. Much better to have a light snack ready prepared and not have too high expectations of them needing to eat.

One thing to be particularly careful of is to cook a special meal

Ribbon on the dog

How about putting a ribbon on the dog? Odds on the dog may well be one of the first things that they see.

You could also decorate the house with baloons.

Take rose pedals and make a heart in their room. then write “welcome home” in the heart.

I took a post-it note and wrote:
Welcome home, I also made a card. It says:
Dad you rock. I have 1 thing to say…
Welcome home

Have a photo album about your brother so his friend has a better understanding of his family.

If you have a driveway and sidewalk chalk you can decorate the drive way with welcome home signs!

Posted by Tink — 24 Jul @ 5:44 pm

you could make a dinner,
invite some close family friends round
make banners
lots oif things

Posted by tinkerbell — 13 Aug @ 10:51 pm

well there coming home.. its nothing so WOO
the last thing ur brothers GF needs is to feel guilty about how much effort u made, and she may just want to rest after a long journey. So just stick to the normal WELCOME HOME banner, and make some English tea and bake a cake that also says WELCOME HOME, im sure she’ll be more grateful to you, rather than having baloons and silly string everywhere.. let her rest and for dinner make something VERY english, bangers and mash, i doubt she’ll want the usual USA food
good luck and remember not to over do it, you’ll only embarrass yourself

My boyfriend just got home from his church retreat today. I am going to make him a little welcome home party on Sunday, March 14th. I am going to treat him out to a nice romantic dinner, and go see a movie that he wants to go see, and my grandma is going to make him a welcome home cake for him. So I am going to make a welcome home sign.

You could make a card instead of buying one from the store and personalize it.

Make fav food
Scrap Box
Watch fav movie

Posted by Shadow — 22 Mar @ 3:39 am

You could make a banner so the person that’s coming home feels welcome! :)

Posted by Miranda — 30 Mar @ 4:16 pm

Just make them feel special, put all attention on them. They might be tired from the flight so maybe make a trail of cards saying quotes or something up to their bed, rest might be what they need. You could watch a classic movie as a family or have the table set with candles for a meal as a family. If it were me I’d do the card trail, I’d bake a cake, make a banner and/or a card and I’d buy a let go lantern – as a family set it off and watch it drift into the nights sky together:)

Posted by Rebekah — 5 Jun @ 11:23 am

Just make sure you leave them alone after the surprise, they’re tired

Posted by MWAHAHAHAH!!!!! — 28 Jun @ 7:49 pm

You should make a banner, hang up balloons, make a nice dinner. You could throw a surprise party, invite friends over and have everyone jump out when the person comes in. :)

I would take a single sheet and get some finger panit and let friends and family put their hand prints on it with the words Welcome Home in the middle. I did that for my husband when he came home from deploymnet. My friends in our little area put their hands on the sheet and we hung it up next to the road the day he came home.

My bf is coming home today from central america… hot, dirty , muggy and buggy- making a basket for bathroom with shower goodies, uber toothbrush fresh towels. Also using kid chalk and writing wlecome home on the driveway when he pulls in… and when he opens the fridge there will be a keylime cheesecake with his name on it;)

Posted by ha — 13 May @ 9:16 pm

or arrange rose petals in the shape of a heart in
front of the door so theyll see it when they come in but dont put it on the driveway cause theyll run it over without even noticing it.

Posted by haa — 13 May @ 9:19 pm

Have all the friends and family at the airport and do a flash mob.

Posted by Erick naidoo — 10 Jan @ 10:57 pm

Tell them that they are special and do something fun with them,

Posted by Veronica — 22 Feb @ 1:14 am

You could start off by decorating the outside of your house with streamers, then you could get balloons on the outsude and when the walk into the house they could walk into a big group hug with banners and cupcakes and cards and love <3

Posted by Chole — 29 Mar @ 2:53 pm
