I set the table with a red and white checkered tablecloth (from the dollar store) to set the mood. Then, we had a BBQ, and I filled the table with camping themed treats.
We had "bug juice" (which was really red fruit juice).
And I filled dollar store canisters with "camp candy".
And Graham cracker teddy bears were part of the fun with a "don't feed the bears" label I made using Picmonkey.com.
Cheesies were transformed into "campfire flames" with another little label I designed.
And Goldfish crackers became "fish from the lake".
I also set up a s'mores bar with a huge selection of marshmallows, cookies, and chocolate.
And the kids made their own "candy kabobs" to take home.
And, finally, I served two different campfire cakes... one for each of my birthday boys. You can find the full instructions for these DIY campfire cakes here.
With a little imagination and a few "punny" food labels, it is simple to create camping party food that will impress guests of all ages. My boys and their friends loved all the yummy treats we served at our camping party, and I loved that they will all easy and inexpensive to prepare!
