Campout Birthday Party


Let me first warn that there is a mass amount of pics with this blog!:) I had over 200 to choose from so it was difficult to narrow down! This is my sons 7th Camping bday Party. I put up a "Camp" style sign that said "Welcome to Camp Tyson"

I need to also say that we had great weather during the party but did have 30 mph winds. Which for the perfectionist in me was a little difficult at first. Some of my "party ideas" just didn't happen and some had to be altered. However, in the end I think it turned out to be a fun party. Below is a pic of our food/ sweets table. It was an afternoon party so we did snack foods and lots of sweets!



Before we got started with any activities I had each "camper pick up a bag that had "Camp Tyson" on the front along with activity patches.




Kristie from Party paper creations created a party pack with bag toppers, water bottle labels, cupcake toppers etc. I used a 2" punch to cut out these tags and backed them with glitter paper and used simple raffia to tie them to the bags. I then wrote each child's name on the back so we could keep track of every ones loot!


I used an antique table and benches I had as the kids table. Moss covered mushrooms, grass table runner, metal grasshoppers, concrete squirrel and rocks served as the simple decor. In the background you can see the burlap I used to drape the tent. this is one of those modified ideas! I had ordered 75 yds to massively drape the tent but due to the wind we did good to drape this much!:)


I used an old cart with a grass runner, rocks, and a funky owl to serve as the "present stand". I covered a chair with an old burlap sack for the birthday boy to sit on while opening presents.


For the food table I had a two tiered camping birthday cakes, woodland cake pops, fudge cupcakes with woodland cupcake toppers and lots more!






Some more of the food table...The large frogs are Marshmallow treats and I created "Frogs on a Log" by using Ho Ho's and gummy frogs. There was also woodland sugar cookies and polka dotted shortbread cookies.

Here's a peak at the top of the cake.


I made "Mud Pies" by filling mini pies with cool whip, topping them with chocolate pudding and adding a few gummy worms.


I mixed a variety of woodland style cake pops to add to the outdoor theme.

I also used a mix of woodland paper cupcake toppers to fudge cupcakes.



I used large ant planters to hold the plastic ware and napkins. This turned out to be great in the wind!
