Camping Party Loot Bag

Every party needs a fun party gift / loot bag, and today, I am sharing the simple camping-themed party favors I gave to guests at my boys' birthday party. I have a couple of treat ideas you are going to love.


First, I had a prize booth where the kids were giving the opportunity to choose their own gift. The kids went on a scavenger hunt, and when they completed it, they were allowed to pick a prize.



Every party guest was also able to claim a prize from the prize punch. I have been making prize punches from dollar store supplies for years, and they are a staple at all our parties. You can find the full tutorial here.



And finally, as the guests were leaving, they were given a package of water balloons with a thank you note that I designed using Picmonkey.com.



I love an easy, inexpensive, and useful party favor / goodie bag / loot bag, don't you? I especially LOVE how these little treats fit in perfectly with the camping party theme.

Camping Party Decor

Setting the stage for a party doesn't need to be expensive or difficult. You can easily create simple (and adorable) decor for very little money. Today, I am sharing the fun way I transformed my house into "Camp Bellzie" for my boys camping themed birthday party.


I started by creating a simple photo banner. I designed 4x6 pictures using Picmonkey.com, printed the photos, and strung them on a piece of twine.




I also used Picmonkey.com to create other signage, including a camp schedule that I placed by the door in a simple dollar store frame. Using camping supplies I already had (like this lantern) added to the atmosphere too.


And of course, I used balloons that matched my red and yellow colour scheme. Every party needs balloons, right?


I also set up a tent.


And I set up a fun party food table. I used a red and white checked tablecloth (from the dollar store), red dishes, and food labels I designed using Picmonkey.com. Sticking with a consistent colour scheme is key!


Simple decor and a cohesive colour scheme can really make a party look pulled together. This camping party decor is easy, inexpensive and fun... and is guaranteed to impress your guests.
