After noticing how much our son loved our weekend camping trips, we decided a camping themed second birthday party was in order to celebrate his big day.
Using much of what we had on hand already, we created postcard inspired invites, had camping games set up, and even named our pool "Lake I'm Turning 2"- Food was typical camp-inspired fare that is also toddler approved- hot dogs, fruit salad, chips and s'mores for the kiddos while the adults had an assortment of chicken sausages and pasta salad. We also created a scavenger hunt for the kids to take part in so that they could get a prize where they could spot things in nature like a butterfly, tree, bird, and they received a compass as a reward.
Favors were mini LED lanterns that come in quite handy and the highlight of the party was the mini campsite we set up complete with photo props!
