Backyard Birthday Campout:
When it comes to planning a party’s menu, nothing is quite as easy as a camping party! Hot dogs, burgers, potatoes, beans and salads are all popular choices that all ages love. You’ll want a few quick snack ideas too like chips, popcorn and a snack mix.
For a camping party, you could skip the traditional birthday party cake and serve camping-themed sweets instead like a DIY s’mores bar, s’mores cupcakes, s’mores squares…well, basically anything with s’mores in the title. Ha! Bear-themed snacks are a fun idea for kids like teddy graham cookies, Bear Paw cookies or even the dessert versions of Goldfish Crackers.
The dollar store is always a good place to go in search of party supplies like fake trees for your table, lanterns, paper plates, pie plates, paper cups, napkins, plastic utensils and more. No need to go with fancy dishes for a camping party!
