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.”
This RETRO 70′S BARBIE CAMPING 6TH BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Maria Davis of Love & Sugar Kisses is absolutely darling! What a creative twist on your regular camping themed celebration! I adore the vintage barbie touches…take a look at the darling barbie camper van cookies & boxes, for example!
Maria said- “My party theme was a 70′s Vintage Barbie Camping Party! The inspiration for the party was the 1971 Barbie Camper, which I found on ebay. I wanted to evoke the spirit of the 70′s by using colorful and girly fabrics throughout the party and used bright pink, aquas green, yellow & orange as my colors. I used feathers in several of my decorations and made 70′s style feather hair clips for all the girls. I used some touches of nature like twigs for the frames, pine cones and a tree stump cake stand. But I added some Barbie sparkle to them as well!
Piggy Bank Parties created all the beautiful printable products including the amazing favor boxes which were detailed replicas of the Barbie Camper! Inside each camper were Barbie stickers & bottlecap necklaces.
We had several party activities. We began with a nature walk and each girl was given a decorated clipboard with items to look for, an embellished canteen, and backpack. After lunch we sat around our faux fire and sang campfire songs. Then we went back outside for a s’mores relay race. The girls were divided into teams and had to assemble s’mores using large pillows and graham crackers & chocolate bars made from foam board. It was a hilarious site and they had a blast!
The dessert table included cake, designer Oreos & s’mores on a stick all made by me. Beautiful cookies designed to look like the Barbie camper were made by Bambella Cookie Boutique. Delicious cake pops in the bright party colors and decorated with feathers were made by Cuter than Cake. We served camp-style hot dogs & chips for lunch along with a 70s favorite soda, Nehi! In addition to their camping supplies, each guest received a bag of trail mix & bubbles along with their camper favor box!
The pictures were taken by my amazingly talented friend Wendy of Wendy Updegraff Photography whose photos are always gorgeous!”

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!).”
