Camping Birthday Party

I've been completely neglecting the blog lately because of all the end of the year school stuff.  Doesn't everything seem busier the last month of school?  Of course we also threw a birthday party into that mix as well.  As you've seen in my previous posts, we were gearing up for a Camping Birthday Party.  My daughter loved it and even told me that it was the best birthday party ever before she fell asleep.  Aww, it makes all the work worth it.

Here is a picture of the tents that we set up in the backyard.  The kids loved running in and out of them.  My parents made a fake fire using a light, fan and cellophane.

I went with picnic type table cloths on all the tables. 

Here are the twig covered pots that I made and used as centerpieces.  

I made a little clothesline with pictures from previous years. 

The awesome cake that Moeller's Bakery made.  My daughter loved it! It has a Fisher Price camping set on top of the cake. My mom and dad found this and had them added to the cake.  They had these really cool candy rocks on top of the cake.  The kids loved them.  

The kids made pet rocks.  They also had a bug hunt at the beginning of the party with fake bugs. 

The enjoyed running around with their binoculars that I made for them. 

They all took a whack at the Bee Hive Pinata.

My favorite part was the musician that came to sing.  Andrew is fantastic and he has such wonderful children's songs.  You should check him out at his website, here
It turned out to be a fun party and I am so glad my daughter went with the camping theme.  The boys and girls from her class really seemed to enjoy it.
