Party Planning: Camping

My girl will be turning 6 at the end of the month. Where has the time gone? After lots of brainstorming, she and I decided on a 'camping' party. Tents, marshmallows, crafts and friends... a great birthday theme for a Kindergartener!

Now keep in mind, neither one of us is actually really into 'camping' so it will be more 'glamping'-- you know glamorous camping. (Think "Troop Beverly Hills!) And since they are still wiggly little girls, we are camping in our backyard for 2 hours. I'm not ready to brave an over-night or the woods just yet!

I have been searching my favorite party blogs and I have found lots of adorable ideas and inspiration. Just look at the creativity out there...

Afton's "Wish List" for the party include: playing with friends, making a snack, doing a craft, painting nails, going on a scavenger hunt, eating cake and opening presents. Sounds like a pretty good 'camp out' to me! 

Have you ever been to a camping or 'glamping' party? Any ideas you want to share? :)


  1. What a fantastic idea!!!! I love the logfire cake. Cant wait to see the post of the party. Its Gabe's 7th birthday tomorrow - and we have had to cancel our plans as he broke his leg on Wed. Just written a post on it xxx Nat

  2. That is a fabulous idea! Loved Troop Beverly Hills. My daughter would love a camping party.

  3. My daughter just had a "glamping" party last month! We had "camping" food..hot dogs etc. I made cupcakes from pinterest..the icing looked like a campfire with orange icing and little pretzel sticks for logs and a mini marshmallow on a stick. The girls also roasted marshmallows and watched Troop Beverly Hills (they are older though). I also made a s'mores trailmix for the goodie bags (also from Pinterest). Have fun!

  4. Thanks friends!

    Kelly- I love the idea of pretzel sticks with mini marshmallows. So cute! I think I will add your trail mix idea to our party too. Thanks for sharing with me :)
