Nadia and Dax's Happy Camper Birthday Party Part I - Pretty Real

Nadia and Dax's Happy Camper Birthday Party Part I

8:30 AM

Let's just get this out of the way: my party posts tend to be about a year late. Um, sorry about that.  But this one was really cute and maybe worth the wait. Before we moved, I decided to throw Dax an early first birthday party. It kind of killed me that he wasn't officially 1 year old but it was better than skipping it altogether since his birthday would be just a month after our big move. His and Nadia's birthday are just a day apart so I decided to throw a joint party. It also made sense to add a few more friends to the invite list and make it a going away party. So we held a "the DeLangie camp is packing up" + "Our Happy Campers are turning 4 and 1" party.  Here are the details:
Favors and Activities:

 These adorable canteens though. Maybe my favorite part. And the kiddos loved them. Available here. I also list sources at the end of the post.

 My mother-in-law grabbed these fun hats at the last minute. I can't remember where but you can find similar hats here.

 Oh just boring-make-me-so-happy balloons :)

 I lucked out and found fun camping themed crafts at Hobby Lobby- some even had scripture.  Totally cute.

The photo booth was barely used but it sure was cute. I made the signs using this clip art.

Props from here.

I use these ikea frames at nearly every party.
These fun tattoos were a hit.


I loved this bar. And suddenly I'm craving peanut butter chips.

The trail mix bar and the snack table were the most fun for me! I've come a long way since Nadia's circus party. No more elaborate set ups. I want to offer easy (mostly store bought) snacks that the kids will love.
The snack table included: Campfire cake. S'mores pops. Teepee cones, Dirt Cups (pudding, smashed oreos, and gummy worms). Kindling Logs (dipped pretzels). and Fish bait (gummy worms).

I love these s'mores pops! And so easy- Use these fun straws, dip marshmallows in candy melt, roll in crushed graham crackers. Done.

That's it for part I. Come back soon for Part II. I leave you with this cuteness (and party sources at the end):
