I’m excited to kick off the new week with a CAMPING themed birthday party that just looks like an absolute blast! And that’s exactly what a party is supposed to be, right?!
Desiree from Desiree Spinner Events created such a fun adventure for this birthday boy & his guests at “CAMP LUKE”, where they were greeted with bright green “explorer back packs” (complete with mini binoculars, compass & more!), enjoyed camping-style games, and watched a movie under the stars while chowing down on mini burgers, fries, and adorable camping-themed sugar cookies. There was even a cool custom tent (made by modifying a pop-up tent from Target) and clever “I Survived Camp Luke” tees for kids to take home!
Read on for lots more FUN images + all the creative party details…
PARTY DETAILS, as told by Desiree….
“For this party we purchased a small pop up tent at a local Target and took off all the tenting, then hand-sewed fabric panels and tied & hung each panel to the structure to create a “dreamy feeling” tent. We put blankets and lanterns down for the kids to play with and also hung wooden shaped stars that I painted with glow in the dark paint.
We ordered back packs from LL Bean in the spring when they are super on sale and filled them with small camping goodies like an explorer hat, a copy of Curious George Goes Camping and binoculars.
When the kids arrived we gave them each an explorer backpack. We also got two picnic tables and painted them with green chalk paint so the kids could get that camp-out feeling but also draw and have fun with them!
For the movie screening we got a projector and mini folding camping chairs that were on sale at Amazon and put pillows and blankets out. Kids had been encouraged (via the invitation) to bring their own sleeping bags with them.
The colors were brown, dark green and light green and we kept everything in the color palette. We had camping themed kids music playing and invited Miss Lori from Klub Kidz to come play camping themed games with the kids to wear them out! =) When they wound down to watch the movie (Bernstein Bears go Camping) we served them mini burgers and fries. The cookies were brought out in a paper bag, along with fondant start topped cupcakes by Delicious Desserts.”
