Glam Camping Birthday (25 photos)
What better way to end the summer and welcome the fall than with a glam camping party! In celebration of my niece's 6th birthday we decided to throw a glam camping party for her and her friends. The girls had so much fun roasting marshmallows, hanging out in the tent we made and catching fireflies at dusk. The best part of the party theme....it can definitely be brought indoors in the cooler months!
For the centerpiece of our table, I collected branches and spray painted them purple and placed them in a rustic terra cotta pot we got for a few dollars at the craft store. At the ends of some of the branches I tied small strips of fabric we used throughout the party and stuck some mini marshmallows on the ends. It made for a rustic, camping feel, with a little glam thrown in!
For desserts we had vanilla cupcakes topped with edible fondant toppers from Cakes and Kids, caramel popcorn was our "midnight snack" and Fun Favors supplied the most adorable cookies that coordinated perfectly with our theme. Some of them even had edible glitter on them! We also filled berry baskets for each girl, supplied by Party On! Designs, with graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate bars for s'more making during the party.
I Have A Favor supplied personalized canteens for all the girls to use during the party which they filled with "spring water" and then took home as a party favor. Each guest also went home with a mini mason jar filled with "s'more's for later", a mix we created using mini marshmallows, M&M's and golden grahams cereal.
During the party, the girls loved hanging out in the tent my dad actually built using pieces of lumber from the local hardware store. It was great as it was tall enough for the girls to actually stand in. We draped two queen sized sheets that coordinated with our party colors over the tent and secured the ends to the ground. We then placed a coordinating throw rug on the ground so our guests had a comfy place to sit.
The girls loved going glam while camping in the backyard. It's a great theme for girls of all ages!
