Because of the two upcoming parties we are trying to keep the birthday celebration smaller. Even though I try every year, somehow it always seems to be a 40 person event. Matt calls them the birthday extravaganzas. Can I help it if I think my girlie deserves to have every birthday be wonderful and memorable? I only have one kid to spoil after all.
We always like to talk about birthdays around here, so admittedly January is not really the first time I've thought about it. Morgan and I came up with a fun idea for a glamping party a while back. Glamping - Glamorous Camping. The brainstorm session started out as bringing a tent inside the house and having her friends sleep over. Then it started to get sparkly and girly, thus the glamorous part.
After we realized this girl would be getting 2 parties this year, I am kind of second guessing the idea since she will want to invite all her friends and family over too and it will snowball into to 40 people crammed into my house scenario again. We will probably end up going to do something fun (trampoline park, movies, bowling) with one or two friends and have a family dinner to keep it low key, but I am still in love with the glamping idea. I hope I can still find a low cost way to merge it all.
Here are a few bits of inspiration for a glamping party that I have found along the way:
Top to Bottom:
1. Making personalize pillowcases would be a fun craft for the girls to do at the party.
2. Campfire cake anyone?
3. What camping experience is complete without smores? Cute favor.
4. I love the color pallet for this glamping party showcases on Hotess with the Mostess!
