So, I'm all about having birthday parties at home. Always have loved planning parties for all my boys since they were one. I've had bug parties, bumble bee parties, construction parties:
olympic parties, backwards parties, harry potter parties and pirate parties.I've thrown camp out parties for my two older boys before (when they were young) with great success, so wanted to do it again.
Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate here; we set up camp inside.
Here's how it played out.
When guests arrived, they saw this:
For dinner, we had camp type food -- burgers and dogs, corn on the cob, and cole slaw. I used camp cooking supplies to hold the food and utensils.
After dinner, we had some camp cake...I little something I whipped up with Hostess ho-hos with candles tucked inside for the fire. (Later, we were going to have a s'more buffet bar...way too many sweets...oops)
The favors and the s'more buffet were an idea I saw on another blog, Moore Minutes. They were little hobo bags created from camouflage material and sticks...
I filled the bags with this:
I also made take home s'more bags.
