Pack your tent and sleeping bags…we’re going camping! I am just in LOVE with the organic, natural feel of this vintage style camping party sent to us by Jamie Lillie. Take a peek at all of these fun and whimsical party details that would make any birthday boy, one happy camper!
Upon arrival, all of the kiddos were given a camping carry-all bag to stash all of their goodies in while attending “Camp Tyson“. Burlap sacks were filled with themed favors like bug catchers and water guns, while any little campers’ sweet tooth could be satisfied with wonderfully clever treats like “Frogs on a Log“, Mud Pies, and (adorable!) Woodland Cake Pops.

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Jamie…
For my sons 7th Birthday we threw him a camping themed party. I love things vintage and with an antique style, so I tried to incorporate that look & feel into the party.
Upon arrival each “camper” received a ‘Camp Tyson’ bag to carry with them through out the party to hold their prizes. I made each one from a canvas bag and added the felt and burlap along with the camp style patches. I draped the tent and tables with burlap and accented with moss and grass runners. I used an antique wire plant stand to hold the favors. I filled Burlap sacks and old ammunition boxes to hold things like water guns, bubble blowers, bug catchers, nets, bug viewers and grasshopper lolly pops.
For games we did a sand dig (filled with money), a fishing game, sack races and a scavenger hunt. For the scavenger hunt each camper received a list and a burlap sack to collect all the items on the list.
For food we had marshmallow frogs, Frogs on a Log (Ho Ho’s with Gummy Frogs), Mud Pie (Mini Graham Cracker pies filled with chocolate pudding and gummy worms), Woodland Cake Pops, a Camping themed Cake, Chex Mix, and Woodsy Sugar Cookies.
It was a super windy day so I used rocks on the table to add some ‘woodsy’ feel and to hold everything down!:) Wire grasshoppers held the food cards and grasshopper planters held the plastic ware and napkins. I also accented with antique camp lanterns, antique benches and ferns. For the ‘present’ stand I used an antique push cart and a chair covered with a burlap sack for the birthday boy to sit.
I used printables from Party Paper Creations for my ‘Bug Juice’, bag tags and s’more bag toppers. For the kids table I used an antique German Table w/benches. I did a simple grass runner, moss mushrooms, concrete squirrel and metal grasshoppers.”
