PARTY DETAILS, as told by Tania…
We are that family that starts the weekend camp trips in early May and continues all through the summer and wraps up the season just before school starts in September. So it was really not surprising that my son Karlo decided on a camping theme for his sixth birthday! So many great memories have been made while out in the wilderness; sitting around the campfire, fishing with grandpa and dad, going on long ATV rides. Really, this is the magic of childhood :)
When I plan a party I always ask my sons what they want most, Karlo said he wanted to see, “all the animals in nature”. Well, I had already designed the printables so I incorporated some cute forest animals in the sweets department.
The cute little owls were a combination of several Pinterest cupcakes I had pinned. I used the petal frosting technique for the belly and then frosted the wings and ears with a star tip. Fondant eyes really made them pop!
A scavenger hunt was a perfect party activity, too bad our West coast weather didn’t want to cooperate!
Oh how I loved the sly little fox! I saw a tutorial on how to create this cutie on Handmade Charlotte and I knew we would be great be friends! It was actually a very simple to follow tutorial and turned out even better than I had hoped :)
My birthday boy was so happy with his party, he especially loved momma’s hedgehogs! The cute little critters were inspired by none other than the fabulous Martha Stewart.
I hope you had S’more fun looking at this photos!
