real party: camping party

November 16, 2010

Get ready for this beyond fun camping party by Tracie of TSJ Photography. The party was for Tracie’s 7-year-old daughter, Wynter.   So many great details … we can decide which is our favorite!

Here is the fun and festive invitation.

Lots of fun signs to get guests excited as they arrived (more on Tracie’s blog).

And a banner to welcome all of the happy campers – just like real camp!

A camping party of course has to have s’mores – we especially love the trail mix!

In lieu of gifts, the girls asked for books they’ll be donating to their school library (love that!).

Since its cold out, Tracie improvised and created these tee-pees and the girls doubled up and slept inside.  That just might be more fun in our opinion!For even more great details (yes, there’s more!) check out Tracie‘s blog.  Thank you, Tracie, for letting us share!

i threw my 8 year old daughter a pretend camp out this past sept and it might have been the best birthday party we have ever had in our house…that said, i WISH it could have looked like this. i do have to say though, for those of you feeling like you could never pull off these types of details, what i loved was the imperfections that camping allows made it feel that much more authentic (i.e serving food right out of the bag).

also, for our invitation, my daughter and i made “smores” and hand delivered them to each persons house. we took two pieces of thick brown cardboard, a pile of thick white cotton facial cleanser pads, and a brown piece of paper and assembled and then printed and glued the actual invitation to the top.
