A Girly Camping-Themed Birthday Party Invitation

The inspiration for a girlie camping-themed party came from a shimmering feather headband [3]. Girlie photo invitations were designed to invite guests for an evening at "Camp Bella" to celebrate Bella's birthday.

A Girlie Modern Dessert Table

Girlie, indeed! A vibrant green chevron fabric — with dangling, handmade paper stars — served as the backdrop for the dessert table. A blue wooden frame [5] and yarn-covered "B" gave it a personalized touch.

Girlie Camping-Themed Birthday Cake

The most delicate and girlie birthday cake we've ever seen! At the center of the dessert table, a girlie-themed cake [8] stole the show. With delicate pink ruffles and colorful fondant feathers — giving a nod to the headband that started it all — this cake is a masterpiece!

Camping-Themed Dessert Table Goodies

A vintage campout! Also on display — and ready for consumption — were mini s'mores crates [10], packed with marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers. Glass bottles of milk with vintage-style striped paper straws [11] were on hand to sip it all down!

Girlie Arts and Crafts Station

There was lots of fun to be had at "Camp Bella"! A pink bookshelf was transformed into the activity center for this girlie camping-themed party and decorated with a colorful, handmade felt feather garland.

Blowing bubbles with heart-shaped bubble wands [14] and a good old-fashion scavenger hunt were just a few of the activities to take part in during the celebration. The girls even got to make real s'mores!

Girlie Arts and Crafts Party Ideas

Little guests — and the birthday girl, of course! — painted logs (kraft paper-wrapped Pringles' cans) and created their very own wooden masterpiece to commemorate the occasion.

Girlie Fabric Tents

At the end of the evening, the girls settled down for an indoor campout — with custom fabric tents, personalized with handmade pillows. We think they were all pretty happy — especially the birthday girl — judging by their smiling faces.
