Noah’s Camp In Party


Our oldest son's birthday is in January, and this year he celebrated his golden birthday--7 on the 7th.  We decided to incorporate one of his favorite summer pastimes into his winter birthday and went with a camping theme.


Design Inspiration

I looked around Pinterest for some camping party inspiration and found a some fun ideas.  We live in Colorado, so it wasn't too much of a stretch to find things to decorate with!

Decorating Style

Kind of a funky mix of modern, cottage chic, vintage and industrial. 

Project Details

I was working on a budget and only a little bit time, so I did a whole lot of DIY-ing for Noah's party.  I made the "Camp Noah" pennant banner out of burlap, twine, stencils and some paint.  The jars for the s'more mix, wooden letter "N," Spanish moss, and wood accents were all purchased from Hobby Lobby.  The favor bags were filled with organic granola bars, fruit strips and lollipops.  The little pouches are actually loose leaf tea bags I purchased from our local Vitamin Cottage and personalized using ink stamps.  I made the cake using four 9 inch round layers stacked up, and created the camping scene on top using marshmallow fondant.  The fun camp out cake was based off of one I found here:


The rest of the decor came from around our house (glass jars, lanterns and baskets).

Favorite Items

I think my favorite part was making Noah's camp out cake.    It was my first attempt at decorating with fondant, and it was SUPER easy and SO much fun!!!  I will definitely be making our all of our sons' birthday cakes in the future.  Loved it! 


A little fabric and twine go a long way. :)
