  • Featured Customer Party: Camp Mudpies & Glitter!

    I can't believe that Christmas is over....it's been a busy, busy year and my posts have definitely been lagging this year due to filling orders every day and the rush from the holidays! But... that's another post for another time!

    I am so happy to finally share this adorable party that I was lucky enough to help make some super cute items for! Jennifer contacted me a while back and said she and her friend Amberly were planning a third birthday party for both of their children, whose birthdays are days apart. They decided on a camping theme and it needed to have a true camping feel, but some girly aspects incorporated for Jennifer's little birthday girl, Allie. They came up with the idea for Camp Mudpies and Glitter - the perfect combination of camping for boys and girls alike! Their colors were mainly brown and green, with some pink for Allie and Camp Glitter! They also planned to incorporate owls into the decorations and treats, one boy owl for Ty and one girl owl for Allie. I designed the invitation, which they also blew up as a poster for the party, plus some cute trail mix treat bag tags and s'mores owl favor tags! Jennifer and Amberly did the rest and I think they did a fabulous job - check out the pictures to see all of the adorable details and fun the kids had!
    This is the invitation that I designed for Jennifer & Amberly. They took this adorable picture of Allie & Ty by the lake where the party was held. I think the photo could not be any cuter and more perfect for this invite!


    I absolutely love their handmade camp signs and tents! They were such a great idea not only for play & decoration for the party, but also for gift opening and great photo backdrops. And the picture of Allie and Ty in the fishing frame was the perfect addition to the center of the food table display.  
    I adore this Little Campers cake from Sugar Belles Cakery complete with mini fondant figures for Allie & Ty, and roasted marshmallows on a stick by the fire! The photo of the two of them with their cake is precious! 

    What camping theme birthday party is complete without s'mores cupcakes? I love the creative use of the stand with the cupcakes. The owl decorations were handmade and the perfect way to bring in their owl elements they wanted to incorporate into the party.
    The party food was perfect for young children - campfire flames (a.k.a. Cheese Puffs), mud pie desserts in mason jars topped with gummy worms (sweet, messy and fun!), marshmallow owl treats and teddy graham bears were cute snacks to go with the outdoor camping theme!
    For the favors, Jennifer & Amberly gave out handmade lanterns, owl treat bags and trail mix in "I Survived Camp Mudpies & Glitter" labeled bags!
    The activities for the day included bounce house jumping, fishing and of course roasting marshmallows! The location of their party had the perfect setting for all of the fun camping activities!
    You can tell the kids and the parents had a great time at this party! I think Jennifer and Amberly did such a great job in planning their fun camping theme and making it the perfect mix for boys and girls! This is a great idea for siblings with close birthdays, twins or anyone looking to double up and throw a party with a friend. I'm so happy to have been able to help make some of the items for Allie & Ty's special day!
