This fun GLAMPOUT GIRL CAMPING BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Mariah Rainier Miller of Mariah Rainier Style. The way I see it, if you’re going to camp, you might as well do it in style! So many cute ideas here!
Here’s what I love about this girly camping party:
The chevron + pennant banner cake topped with a silver RV camper
The gummy worms and chocolate pudding served in push pop containers
The deer head adorned with ribbon, hanging on the wall
The teepee pennant banner
Mariah said this about planning the party- “Camping… yes! Roughing It? Not Quite. When your birthday is in the midst of winter what better way to create an indoor slumber party when it’s just too cold to camp outdoors, than with GLAMping? To get the ultimate glamping experience we set-up a pretty tent in a cozy space for the perfect foundation for any glampsite.”
How fun is this CAMPING THEMED BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Christen Byrd of Christen Byrd Photography! Such a cute outdoor themed celebration with a lot of darling ideas!
Christen said this about planning the party- “This was a camping themed party for my daughter Olive and her friend Graham. It was so much fun! We had a tent, campfire, flashlights…it was great! We had a homemade cake and camping cookies made by Sweet Love Bakes here in Little Rock, AR. All in all it was a very budget friendly party as we used things we had on hand. All the camping supplies we had or borrowed. All the decorations I made myself. We even turned our summer lemonade stand into a marshmallow stand! Winter birthdays can be hard to make fun…but this may have been my favorite so far!”

Lauren said this about planning the party- “I had WAY too much fun designing and styling everything for Camp Christmas! It seems like camping parties are so popular right now so I thought what better way to celebrate my absolute favorite time of the year than with a camping Christmas Party??!!
The party started with everyone gathered around the “tissue paper” camp fire. This was a play date with lots of little ones so a real fire was out of the question. And we live in south Louisiana where it can be hot Christmas day! The kids sat on hay bales and roasted their s’more pops as we sang Christmas carols. The s’more pops were a big hit for the kids!
We sat outside for a picnic lunch of PB&J’s, fresh fruit, veggies and trail mix. I found woodland animal ornaments at Tuesday Morning which added a special touch to each place setting. The mommas enjoyed hot chocolate from the hot chocolate bar with lots of fun fixings and blueberry scones while the kids played in the back yard.
I designed a Nature Scavenger Hunt as an activity for the party. I placed snowflakes and beetles around the yard and there were plenty of leaves and gumballs for the kids to fill their baskets. I purchased the wood baskets at Hobby Lobby and added yarn balls and a name tag for each guest. After the scavenger hunt, everyone got to take a picture in the Camp Christmas tent.
We finished the party by decorating ice cream cone “Christmas Trees.” Icing… candy… the kids LOVED it!!!

My next winning party feature goes to this beautiful CAMPING THEMED BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by the wonderful Wendy Updegraff Photography. This party theme is getting more and more popular..I can see why. It’s just so fun! Wendy always does such a superb job. This party is adorable. The green chevron, pink, yellow and turquoise colors are my favorite. Take a look at the s’mores kits and leaf & tent cookies…so cute!
Here is what Wendy had to say about the party- “We came up with the theme of Camp Bella when we were looking at my Favorite Designer/Artist Lori Marie’s website. We have a few of her pieces and love her style and colors, she is uber talented!!! We saw her feather headpiece and decided to have the whole party center around it! It turned out perfect and Bella and her friends had a great time!
It was raining most of the night so I was really glad we decided to have it all inside this year, a lot less stressful!! We managed to sneak outside for a few minutes here and there, to blow bubbles and to make s’mores (you can see the rain drops in the s’mores pictures!).”
