Doll and Camping Party
This past weekend we celebrated Kalla’s big 9th birthday with a bash in our backyard.
A giant homemade tent (tutorial to come), lots of yummy food and crafts.
For the table (our picnic table) I covered it in white paper table cloth and pink printed wrapping paper (found at Target on clearance).
White tin votives down the middle of the table.
Tin pie plates from the Dollar Tree in place of paper plates.
Glass jars and straws.
Trinkets at each place setting: banana, mini colorful flashlight and glow stick bracelets.
The girls all brought their favorite doll (or stuffed animal).
The dolls all enjoyed their own mini bandanas, campfire and roasted marshmallows.
I made the chairs with simple pieces of wood and paint. Will share my how to this week.
Marshmallows on a stick is simply bamboo skewers and folded sheets of copy paper.
We used elastic hair bands to help the dolls hold their sticks.
Food for the party goers per request of bday girl: chicken tacos, fresh salsa and chips, buttered corn on the cob and fruit kabobs.
Crafts: glitter votive candle holders.
To make we simply poured and coated the inside of mason jars with mod podge, then sprinkled glitter inside.
In the big tent, their were supplies to make bracelets and necklaces.
The girls made some for themselves and for their dolls.
Aside from taking home their doll chairs, marshmallows, trinkets and crafts, we set up a trail mix station for party favors.
They all had a really great time.
Even though the rain didn’t hold out for the whole party and the smores got nixed.
To see the invitation go here. :)
