Party Recap

A very special vintage National Park camping themed 3rd birthday party for my son Holden. This party theme was inspired by the old National Park/National forest signs, Smokey the Bear, vintage National Park tourism posters, vintage Coleman camping gear and all kids love of camping! The main colors within the theme were the vintage Coleman green, muted yellows, park sign brown and of course some buffalo plaid!
