This girly Glam Camping party sent in by Michele of Sweet Threads is the perfect counterpoint to last weeks rustic boys camping party. I love the camping theme that’s so popular now and the diy tents are a MUST when doing them. Michele’s party goes GLAM with the soft color palette, frilly accessories, and pretty fabrics.

Details told by Michele: “What better way to end summer and welcome the fall than with a glam camping party! In celebration of my niece’s 6th birthday we decided to throw a glam camping party for her and her friends. The girls had so much fun roasting marshmallows, hanging out in the tent we made, and catching fireflies at dusk. The best part of this party….it can definitely be brought indoors in the cooler months!
For the centerpiece of our table, I collected branches and spray painted them purple and placed them in a terra cotta pot we got for a few dollars at the craft store. At the ends of some of the branches I tied small strips of fabric we used throughout the party and stuck some mini marshmallows on the end. It made for a rustic feel, with a some glam thrown in 🙂
For desserts we had vanilla cupcakes we topped with edible fondant toppers from Cakes and Kids, caramel popcorn was our “midnight snack,” and Fun Favors supplied the most adorable cookies that coordinated perfectly with our theme. Some of them even had edible glitter on them! We also filled berry baskets for each girl, with graham crackers, marshmallows and Hershey’s chocolate bars for s’more making during the party.
We had personalized canteens for all the girls. During the party they filled them with “spring water” and then took them home as a party favor. We also sent each girl home with a mini mason jar filled with “s’more’s for later”, a mix we created using mini marshmallows, M&M’s and golden grahams cereal.
During the party the girls loved hanging out in the tent my dad built using pieces of lumber from the local hardware store. It was great as it was tall enough for the girls to stand in! We draped two queen sized sheets that coordinated with our theme, over the tent and secured the ends to the ground. We then placed a coordinating throw rug on the ground so the girls had a comfy place to sit while playing in the tent!”
