“Happy Trails” Rustic Campfire Birthday Party

As a newly inducted Cub Scout, Jeremiah wanted to share his new love for the outdoors with all of his friends for his 8th birthday. So mom, aka Kameela Lewis of Tutus & Bowties Events, stepped up and created this “Happy Trails” Rustic Campfire Birthday Party! Kameela not only killed it with the styling, but she also learned how to sew just for the occasion AND made sure the kids had plenty to do! Despite some unexpected rain, they managed to keep the campfire going, so to speak ;).

P.S. Make sure to scroll to the very bottom of this post, where Kameela has generously shared some free printables!
