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 Ideas for National S’mores Day next week.
Whoever decided that roasting a marshmallow over an open fire until it’s melty and golden brown, then sandwiching it between a chocolate bar and two pieces of graham crackers was genius. This yummy campfire treat is loved by millions and it’s not hard to see why!
I teamed up with Oriental Trading to create a camp themed S’mores Party and celebrate the end of summer with a last hurrah. Make sure you head over to Oriental Trading Fun365 to see all of the party details, including a delicious recipe for a Fluffy Marshmallow Dip, a DIY S’mores Banner and S’mores Kit Party Favors.
A s’mores bar is actually such a fun and easy way to hang out with friends. Simply put out a bunch of marshmallows, different chocolate options and graham crackers and let guest make their own yummy s’mores. I even used my Cricut Maker to whip up a custom sign for the simple S’mores Bar set up. It’s the little details that help make things extra special, and fun! It’s why I brought out the DIY tents from my twin’s camp themed birthday party and added cozy pillows for the kids to sit back, relax and enjoy their gooey treats!
Even though it’s usually blazing hot here in Texas on National S’mores Day I haven’t missed a chance to celebrate this fun little holiday with friends and family for years. Seriously though, whoever decided August was the perfect month to have a fire to roast s’mores clearly didn’t live where it was 100+ degrees outside!
