real parties: indoor campout

bashfulevents_campoutparty

The lovely Shannon over at Creative Party Placehas asked that I be a guest hostess this Friday and next Friday. Yippee! So while browsing her blog this afternoon I ran across this indoor campout party submitted by b.a.s.h.ful events. I love the simplicity. A little cocoa, a few s’mores, some “kid-friendly” ghost stories and a faux fire pit… what more do you need, right?! I would say not much, but this mom went above and beyond with campfire songs, pet rock crafts and much more. Check out all the details in her original blog post.

And if you’re interested in hosting your own campout or sleepover, hop into the shoppe and check out our campout collection and great outdoors collection. Oh, and you can’t miss our campout cupcakes! I created them for my boys last summer and they were a huge hit. I mean, who can resist a Hershey chocolate bar tent? {wink}
