Glamping Party {Ellie 6, Emery 4}

 I think I have a picture every year of the girls in the kitchen
with their birthday balloons. 
Invite to the girls' combined glamping
themed birthday party.
 Camp Bogard
 Party entrance
Party scene.
This was what greeted our guests,
a build your own trail mix station.
 A glamping we will go.
 Party favors.
 Now take a hike!
{we love our campers}
 Make your own trail mix station.
 Go nuts!
 I think everyone liked making a little snack.
Campers are always happy when you feed them
from the get go.
 Pretzel nuggets, raisins, peanuts, M&M's, mini-marshmallows.
 The girls waited all day to make one. 
 Grandma Linda and Kat making some trail mix.
 Now for the food.
Camp fire hotdogs, baked beans and chips.
I love that camping food is so easy.
 The tablescape.
  Camping + Glamour = GLAMPING
You can't go glamping and not have a chandelier.
 Camp fire baked beans
{Grandma Linda's special recipe.
She flew 2500 miles to make them}
 Camp Bogard 
 Happy Campers!
 The Florences arriving to the party.
 Kat, Jeremy and Vicki
 More happy campers. 
 Drink station.
Kids project,
beading leather necklaces.
I'm not great at the kid activities, but this kept
them entertained for a few minutes.
 Charms for the necklaces.
 Present time.
 Ready to rip into those presents they have waited
so patiently to open.
One year old already and so mobile.
 The girls got spoiled by everyone who came.
 Tree stump cake.
 Camp Bogard cake.
 We sang twice,
once for each girl.
{combined parties are the best, one cake, one party
and one night, the best!}
 Hope they both made big wishes. 
 Oh yes we did!
"Back that thing up"
 After party relaxing by the fire pit.
 My favorite part,
our new lights that Jeremy strung in the yard.
S'mores station
{although we were all too full}
We are saving them for the 4th of July.

It's funny how the girls keep having birthday parties,
although they are not allowed to get older!
I can't believe they are 6 & 4.
I love when we combine the parties, being only one month apart
it's just so easy, and being so young still they don't care.
Grandma Linda flew in from Florida to be here and it's nice
she can be at both their parties all in one.
The girls waited ALL day long for their party,
it's hard to be patient on your party day.
I think we had lots of "happy campers",
the party was a great success and turned out really cute.
Thanks to all who helped us celebrate!

Oh! pretzels are my favorite! It was wonderful looking at this post. I got some really cool ideas for my nephew’s birthday celebration. I have also booked one of the finest Venues in NYC for his birthday. I am grateful to you for sharing this amazing post.
