Rustic Outdoors Camping Birthday Party

At the tail end of summer, our church had an annual church camp out at a local state park! Campers made reservations months in advance in order to get a camp site. My parents and siblings also joined us, making for fun family time as well! Over the weekend my daughter Kalani turned 3 and we celebrated by hosting a camping birthday party.

Snacks:

Camping wouldn’t be complete without tasty treats! Assorted foods included a S’more bar, a tackle box full of candy Gummy Worms, Swedish Fish and Starbursts, S’more trail mix and green “swamp water” punch.

Also, other campers also pitched in food items such as chocolate, bars and Lit’l Smokies! Everyone enjoyed time around the campfire roasting marshmallows, chatting and eating tasty treats.

Camping Birthday Party Decorations:

Rustic accents included wood from an old birch tree, a plaid picnic style table-cloth, a wool plaid blanket and a unique red picnic basket! Also, I  incorporated items such as coffee pots, cups and pots we had on hand to make the party both cost-effective and unique. 

Overall, the party was a big hit with the kids! Although the children loved sneaking candy, they also enjoyed helping out by gathering pine cones for the table.

Fun:

When the sun went down, everyone from young to old found creative ways to use glow sticks and glow necklaces! Needless to say, we had an eventful night filled with laughter! We enjoyed jumping glow rope, playing glow volleyball, using glow sticks as hats and making balls.

    […] Of course I included all of your typical s’more ingredients, but I had to mix it up a bit and throw in Starbursts. As a teen, a few of my friends roasted starbursts over the fire until the outer shell caramelized and they became soft and chewy on the inside. The result was a tasty treat! For more s’more bar inspiration, take a look at my Rustic Outdoors Camping Birthday Party. […]
