Happy Wednesday everyone!
It’s that time of year again…. time to start planning and booking some of our favorite campgrounds. Our family loves, loves to camp. My husband and I started going camping as soon as we were married and our love for sleeping under the stars has been passed on to our little ones. We love to get in the country and to our favorite provincial and national parks and just camp!
So, when we were planning our son’s birthday party a couple of months ago (yes, there was snow on the ground) he wanted a camping themed party. And I thought, why not? The ideas for this theme could be endless if the party was outside especially, but I wasn’t going to let that stop me! We brought the theme inside and had lots of fun! Just let your imagination go. I’d love to share some of the things I created and maybe it would inspire you to throw a camp-themed party!
Here are the invitations our little guy handed out.
“Creek Water” quenched everyone’s thirst after an afternoon of fun and games 🙂
Hotdog was the natural choice of food for a camping themed party. Who doesn’t enjoy roasting hot dogs beside a fire? Our other “Grub” was Hashbrown Casserole, Baked Beans, Veggies and Dip and lots of other treats!
Recycled tin cans were perfect for storing cutlery in!
I just removed the labels from canned fruit and it was such a fun way to serve it in
Some more treats….
Here is a picture of the cake we had to celebrate our little guy’s 7th birthday. He absolutely loved it!! I am by no means a cake decorator but I’m quite famous for brainstorming what cake I want and then presenting the idea to ….. who else?? My husband!! He has never disappointed us yet! I love the little details on this one!
I didn’t get many pictures of the games we played as I was too busy helping out and organizing and having fun too, of course! But here is a picture of the campfire I drew and colored. We played “Pin the Marshmallow on the Campfire”.
I also found these fun Bingo Cards from Christina at Inspiration for Celebration. Our little ones have
the world’s largest a huge collection of stones so we used them for bingo chips.
It was also fun to make up some thank-you gifts for all the little happy campers that came to party with us! I found these “snakes” at Michaels that grow into life-sized snakes. I’ll admit it…. I am totally scared of snakes and each time I went into our bathroom and saw this snake in the bathtub it freaked me out a little! But they were a big hit with the boys especially!
It was such a fun afternoon! Whether you have little ones that love to camp or even an adult that loves the great outdoors, this is such a fun theme to celebrate someone! Hope you found some inspiration through this post. If you have any questions, please leave me a comment! I love hearing from my readers.
Hope you all have a great day!
Until next time,
