Camping Themed Birthday Party

Camping Themed Birthday Party

One of my absolute favorite things is coming up with a theme for a birthday party and running with it.  I am a believer in every little detail counts. 

For my sons 4th birthday party we decided to go with a camping theme.  Here in March it is a little snowy and cold so I had to improvise a little bit.  

For birthday invitations I found these great clipart on Etsy.  In which I created these custom invitations with. 

I wanted our guests to arrive to see the camping signs so my husband and my sons set out with the router and the torch to make this (supervised of course).

I decorated with trees and stumps and some outdoor decorations that I found at my local dollar store.  We also created a faux fire pit made of wood logs, tissue paper and a fan.  

As part of the kids party bag each child received a water bottle with their names on it.

I created the Happy birthday Sign using hemp string, cardstock paper and burlap for the outdoor feel. 
Aren't these snacks too cute.  I made campfire cupcakes using pretzels and icing.  These little hamburgers are nilla cookies with chocolate, icing and dyed coconut.  I was also able to find these squirrel cookie cutters on Etsy.

Last but not least is my favorite part of the party ~ The Cake

As we are big on the off roading we had to include a dirtbike on the cake as well.  

This was one of my most favorite parties to date to plan and prepare.
