Hanging backpacks, twigs & trees and themed treats like “Mud Pies” will catch your eye at Witt’s Campground! For her special birthday boy, Kristen of Signature Occasions whipped up a gorgeous Woodsy Kids Campground Party with clever elements and natural details… and you can’t have a campground party without a cake to match ;) (How clever is the fondant cake topper with candle campfire flames!?)
PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:
– Marshmallow “S’mores Sticks” and Cheese puff + pretzel campfire flames
– Paint your own birdhouse in the “Wood Shop” and a scavenger hunt!
– Kids tablescapes with wood stump seats & burlap and flannel tablecloths
– Stunning centerpieces with rustic antlers, twig candleholders and a bright sunflower!
PARTY DETAILS, as told by Kristen…
I am an event planner in Mississippi and I had so much fun planning “Witt’s Campground” for him :). As you know, being a party planner myself… planning my own child’s party adds extra pressure to make my own child’s party special. Plus being a working mom, it is tough to devote the time, but it all came together in the end. I hope you enjoy it.
We used children’s tables, brown linens, and toppers (flannel and burlap) to give the outdoor look. We used rustic woodsy decor and antlers as table decor. Above, we hung rope and camping backpacks and camping gear…which the boys loved. My favorite part were the stumps for seats. I just called tree cutting places and told them the measurements. Some places were willing to give them to me for free, but they did charge to deliver them to my house.
I am all about naming items for fun. So we had s’mores sticks (marshmallows dipped in chocolate in graham crackers), campfire flames (pretzel sticks for the logs and puffy cheetos for the flames), and teddy grahams with a sign saying “Don’t feed the Bears”. We also had Mud Pies (pudding, oreos, and gummi worms), a hot dog roast, and acorns (mini nilla wafers, chocolate kisses and chocolate held it all together).
We had bags with water bottles, flashlights, carabiners, and glow in the dark bracelets. The tag was tied with rope saying “You made my party s’more fun since you were here”
We painted birdhouses at the wood shop, did an obstacle course, a scavenger hunt, and made s’mores. The only thing we missed out on was a late night game of flashlight tag because it started to rain, but I think it was fun anyways :).
