Camp Damon 1st Birthday Party


I knew I wanted this theme way before I had my son!  I thought it would be a fun theme for my guests, both kids and adults, to enjoy and who wouldn't like camping?!

Almost all of the details were DIY.  My friend made most of the desserts, my husband made all the food, and I made everything else, like our costumes and road signs.  Everyone enjoyed themselves to s'mores and gourmet hot chocolate.  We invited my daughter's music therapist to sing songs for all the children there.  For the adults, I had set up a station where they could take instagram photos and then those pictures would get printed instantly!  For party favors, kids were given hobo style bandanas on a stick filled with goodies and treats.

Favorite Items

My favorite detail was definitely our costumes!  It took me a total of three months to make!

hi! while the handkerchief on a stick things are cute, i'd say they are more hobo than camping.
