As promised here are the details of the Camping Party decorations and Smores Bar. You can find an overview of the party here. First I made wooden signs using old wood (some we had in our garage and some from a friend) and white paint.
The Camp Caleb sign hung above the Smores Bar with white lights and paper lanterns that we made. I posted previously about how to make these paper lanterns - they were super fast and easy plus you can use any paper you have on hand - making them inexpensive. It also helps dress up a room and you can make it any theme or color scheme just by using different papers.
Using chalkboard paint and a cabinet door I made this chalkboard.
We had Traditional Smores, Peanut Butter Cup Smores, Smores Trail mix and Smores Poptarts. Plus a variety of marshmallows in different sizes.
I made food signs using the Art Philosophy Cartridge for the Cricut. I cut out scalloped circles 2 1/2 inches and then regular circles 2 inches. Using a variety of stamp sets I stamped the tags and then taped them to toothpicks.
For the Smores Mix I mixed together Teddy Graham Crackers (you could also use chocolate ones), mini marshmallows, and M&M's (Peanut Butter and regular).
We also had a photo booth set up. I made the ADVENTURE sign and pinned it to a white sheet. This was a pain in the you know what to hang up but we eventually got it to stay. More on the photo booth in another post.
Finally, I used the Art Philosophy Cartridge to make favor boxes. I found these super cute smores kits at Giggles Galore Blog. I first cut out the largest size French Fry Box from Kraft paper. I made two for each favor box and pasted them back to back. Then I cut out red scalloped circle (2 1/2 inch) and regular 2 inch circles in Kraft paper. I stamped Thanks on one and made a campfire on the other. Each box was filled with graham crackers, a chocolate bar, marshmallows and 2 peanut butter cups. These were Smores Kits for the boys to take home.
Have a great day and don't forget about my giveaway this month!
