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!
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.
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!
