S’mores Bar Party Ideas for National S’mores Day

It's no secret that I'm a fan of celebrating anything and everything from birthday parties to the silly national this or that celebrations. But every now and then one of these national celebrations grabs my attention and we go big, especially when it involves s'mores!  S'mores are a summer favorite and each year this popular campfire treat is recognized and celebrated on August 10th.  To help you celebrate this delicious, gooey treat I'm sharing a few of my favorite S'mores Bar Party … [Read more...]

Summer Camping Party

Have you ever gone on a Summer Campout? My family looks forward to camping, every Summer. We start planning our campout, months in advance. We get the family involved with choosing our campout location, and all the fun stuff that we want to include, such as fishing, and hiking!  Camping by the lake is one of our favorite spots. We're currently finishing up the planning stages of our 2015 Summer Campout. Before our family trip, I thought it would be a good idea to put together a mini Summer … [Read more...]

Twins Camping Themed Birthday Party

For my twins 5th birthday we had a Camping Themed Birthday Party and I realized, a full year later, I never posted it here.  It was such a fun party and before I share all the details of their 6th Birthday Carnival I thought I better share all of the details from this super fun party last year. Deciding on a theme for boy/girl twins can be a challenge especially as they get older and have very different interest and opinions about what they like.  As we discussed what kind of party they … [Read more...]

Celebrate National S’mores Day with a S’mores Bar

Happy National S'mores Day!  This is our Camp S'mores Party from last year, but I thought you could use some inspiration to celebrate National S'mores Day with your own DIY s'mores bar. S'mores are a favorite campfire treat for young and old, and around here we love them!  I set up a table in the backyard with camping items I'd gathered from around the house (and my mom's) and added lots of different options to build the perfect s'more.   I made this fun little sign with scrap wood and … [Read more...]

Naturally Fun Bucket

We recently went camping and while the kids found lots of things to keep them busy and spent countless hours pretending in the woods there were moments where I heard the dreaded "We're bored."  Since we have several camping trips coming up this summer I decided I better be prepared.  So the idea for the Naturally Fun Bucket came to life. I've even created some fun FREE printables for you to download and create your very own Naturally Fun Bucket. Camping, trips to the beach, hiking and … [Read more...]

National S’mores Day

I was scrolling through some of my favorite blogs today during nap time (productive, I know!) and stumbled on the fantastic news that today is National S'mores Day!  After drooling over the inspiration photos on Sweet Designs I promptly decided we would be celebrating this fun day.I only wish I had know this sooner...I would have had a S'mores Party and invited over all our friends to celebrate (I would have used inspiration from Moore Minutes S'mores dessert buffet, can you say AMAZING!) but … [Read more...]
