Camping Themed Birthday Party Decorations

Does anybody else seem two have a couple of months in their life that EVERYTHING seems to happen?

For me it starts with Halloween, a few days later my anniversary....then Thanksgiving.  

Then in December it goes
   My birthday
  Brother inlaws birthday
  Sisters anniversary
  Christmas
  The Boys' birthday

New Years/ My sisters birthday.....then later in January it's my brother inlaws birthday

So that is an insane time of year for us

We get a short break and then March Madness begins....and I'm not referring to basketball

I have one neices' birthday on March 1, an the other on the 6th

So we always have back to back weekends of kid birthday madness

And since I love party planning I get pretty involved with the planning process....it keeps me occupied  and gets out my kid party ya yas until I decided to pop out a little darling of my own

First party up this year was Elsa's 8th.   She had a camping party....which was alot of fun to plan because it felt like you could do so  much with it

I'm going to be dividing the party into different posts so I don't have on long run on post that makes me want to shoot myself writing it....and probably to keep you from shooting yourself as well

I'm going to start with the decorations....

First up is signs


Just pieces of cardboard that I notched out with a box cutter and colored the edges for depth

I put it on the bathroom door along with some flys I made from construction paper


I also made some signs to put outside


Of course with the establishing date as her birth year


And since she was turning 8...



We set up a campsite outside complete with tent, camping chairs, picnic table



One table had a small pine tree (that I dug out of the xmas decorations) a camping stove, and old school kettle



No campsite is complete without a fire....too hot in AZ for one at this time of year so I had to make a fake on

All you need is toilet paper and paper towel rolls



Paint them brown and add some swirls with marker to make them look more wood like

Make your flames out of tissue paper...I twisted them together to create a sort of bouquet and wrapped it in tape.  Then I just set the bouquet in a yogurt container (ha!) and set it between the logs that had been hot glued together


I hot glued cotton balls onto skewers for roasting marshmallows



And here I am roasting my marshmallow



Come back for more Camping Party posts like food and games
