This camping themed birthday party was the perfect way to celebrate our birthday kids and welcome in fall. The buffalo plaid decor and black bear tied the theme together and touches of the outdoors were featured throughout the party. It was so fun to choose a theme our entire family loves to bring the adventure to life!
What People Ate
We kept the menu simple with "camping food." Cold cuts, cheese and rolls to make mini sandwiches, chips, pasta salad and fruit and veggies.
What People Drank
The "spiked cider" for the adults was the perfect fall drink, that wasn't too sweet and totally delicious, and Rainer beer on ice, since it was a camping theme after all! The kiddos had apple juice and water.
The dessert table was a chocolate overload that my daughter and I baked ourselves! The biggest hit was the S'mores brownies! Chocolate Naked Cake with Caramel Drip S'mores Brownies Chocolate Cupcakes with Marshmallow Buttercream Frosting Caramel Apples Campfire Popcorn "Do Not Feed the Bears" Trail Mix
The little campers took home a pinata bag full of goodies, campfire popcorn bags to go, and "do not feed the bears" trail mix.
Activities / Games
We transformed our backyard into a campground by pitching a tent, creating a "watering hole" filled with toy fish using a small pool, and jute tied to sticks for poles and displayed camping signs at each station. There was also a pinata bag decorating station filled with camping stickers and wood stick coloring pencils.
