Girls Camping Party. If you are here from Cricut, welcome! I am so smitten with this party. My sweet little niece recently spent the day with my husband and I, and I love to celebrate the time we have together. She has just started going to pre-school and I miss spending the day with her shopping or having little tea parties. So, when my sister asked if I could watch my niece, I jumped at the chance and decided to have a little camping party with her. But, I didn’t know I was watching the princess until about 5pm the night before she came over, so I had to work fast.After my crew went to bed, I got my Cricuts out and got to work. I made a sweet little banner, some actual tent food tents, some tent shaped party favors, a little invitation for my niece, and some camp signs. When the princess came over the next morning, we made her a matching camp t-shirt, and then we went to my hubby’s office where I had the party set up and ready for her. She was so very excited to see the party just for her, but immediately asked if she could take home treats for her older brother. Of course, Aunt Bunny thought ahead and made enough favor boxes for her, her brother, and two of their friends. With just a few hours of work, I was able to make my sweet little niece’s day! It is so fun to surprise the kids with a random party for no reason! Some of my fondest memories are of the Mr. Bubble Pool parties my mom had for me, “because it was a warm Wednesday afternoon!”
I shopped my house for decor, I found the tent on clearance on one of my bi-weekly trips to the warehouse store for milk, eggs, and oj for my crew, and I HAD to buy it for just $9. I was so glad I did too, because it was the inspiration for the entire party. I have a small cake plate addiction, and party supplies are shoved in every nook and cranny of this house, but, this party is easily replicated with just a few supplies. I ordered the sweet little suitcase and paper products from Oriental Trading for an Easter Party. Since it was just a few of us at this celebration, I gathered a few plates and napkins from my Easter stash.
Since I wanted to surprise my niece with the party, I pre-styled it at my husband’s office in the break room. It’s a perfect place for a small celebration, and I use it fairly often for GNO. I hung the banners up criss cross across the back wall, and then assembled the tent. I used painters tape to stick the camp signs on the faux birch logs and the front of the tent. The cupcakes sat on a simple white cake plate on top of a fun little suitcase from Oriental Trading. Glass milk jars were ready to be filled with juice from an inexpensive drink dispenser. Gold Fish Crackers filled a glass jar, a Ball Canning Jar was filled with homemade trail mix, and sweet floral pastel plates and napkins matched the party perfectly. My niece also loves fresh flowers, so I picked up a bouquet of daisies from the grocery store too. The supplies to make S’Mores were styled on the opposite side of the table.
My niece and I played silly games in the tent, and roasted S’Mores inside, much to her sheer delight! I sent her home with the cake and tent favor boxes, and an extra can of sterno and packaged S’mores fixings so she could share with her brother and their friends.
I am still so glad I was able to throw together this sweet little camping party for my niece! I am looking forward to a few summer days with her and her older brother and a few more unexpected celebrations!
