Bubbly Glamping Party

Happy Friday.  Today I am delight to share this colorful Glamping Party styled by the amazing Jen Craver of Banner Events.  Jen is one the most detailed and creative party stylist around.  Her attention to every last detail is unsurpassed.  I am always so inspired by her beautiful work and this party is no exception.  Jen styled this party for her daughter Kaylee’s 9th birthday.  I am just in love with the bright color patterns, adorable personalized item and individual s’mores kits.  This is definitely the only way to camp!

I was inspired by the fabulous invitation and printable décor first seen in the glamping birthday party for Bachelorette star Emily Maynard’s daughter, Ricki, styled by Anders Ruff, I set out to put my own unique twist on an already very popular theme. With vibrant hues of lavender, hot pink and lime green paired with eye-catching polka dots, stripes and chevron, it was fun to mix glittery and glamorous with some rustic, outdoorsy ideas. Welcome to “Camp Kaylee” where I hope the beautiful photos by A Fresh Take Photographywill help you feel inspired to bring the outdoors in and celebrate your little girl in style! (Huge thanks to Print My Picture Online for printing all of the printable designs.)

We brought in some fun natural elements with artificial pine trees & wood tree rounds.  We sprinkled the table with some pine cones, added a bundle of wooden sticks, as well as a moss runner. To add some pizzazz, we hung paper fans from Oriental Trading Company around our backdrop.  We spray-painted wood crates to help showcase some of our custom dessert creations and add some levels to our dessert display. In the center of our table, we showcased various apothecary jars with colorful candy from Candy Galaxy, and displayed them in a custom laser cut box (Ten23Designs).

Christina of 4 Kids Cakes is my go-to cake designer. Her two-tiered ruffle cake with edible flowers was a stunning addition to our dessert table. In addition to the cake, Christina also custom designed chevron accented chocolate Oreos to match the party décor & baked fresh chocolate cupcakes. They were unbelievably cute displayed in printable cupcake wrappers topped with the most adorable fondant camping themed designs by Sweet Hearts Desire.
My daughter and her friends are big fans of cake pops & cookies, and these little tent and campfire pops by OMC Bakeshop and super cute marshmallow-on-a-stick cookies by Frog Prince Cake & Cookie Design really hit the spot. Trail mix was also served in small dessert jars with cute tags and wooden spoons.
Since camping isn’t really camping without S’mores, I decided to incorporate them in an adorable way at our dining table by putting together a little last minute DIY centerpiece. Using a wooden planter box, some spray painted rocks & pinecones and sterno gel fuel cans, I had the idea to put together an indoor S’mores roasting station. I added a mini ripped fabric bunting to some dowels and a printable chevron bunting to make it fabulous! I put together a display of S’mores roasting sticks for the girls to use.

Mini S’mores kits were packaged in darling mini gable boxes (CakesandKids.com) and dressed up using printable tags and labels from Anders Ruff’s glam camping printable package. Cute stacks of graham crackers and marshmallows were packaged up with twine from The Twinery, and mini Hershey bars from Candy Galaxy were made even more appealing with coordinating printable wrappers. We added a couple of lanterns from Hobby Lobby to carry the campout vibe.

Fueled up for the long night ahead, our little glamour girls were ready to make some camp crafts. Crafting baskets were put together for each girl and contained exciting materials from Oriental Trading Company for making loom band bracelets & earrings, decorating a custom “Gone Glamping” print by Anders Ruff in a frame from Print My Picture Online, and decorating personalized camp journals using vinyl accents from Creative Designs by Toni. Products from CakesandKids.com helped to keep each camper’s supplies in order.

Morning came early, which meant time for breakfast! We kept our breakfast menu simple, serving up some easy no-bake options that we glammed up with cute products from  CakesandKids.com and more printable elements from Anders Ruff’s collection.  Purple “to go” boxes sat ready to be filled for any guest who needed to eat on the run.

There were delicious blueberry muffins and donuts. Fruit & yogurt parfaits in mason jars looked adorable all dressed up for the party. Juice was ready for drinking in these farm stand milk bottles. Little fresh fruit cups were also a popular option.

It was a weekend full of fun that definitely left my daughter and her friends as happy campers!
