camping inside.

my sweet friend becca had a baby about a month ago and it was time to throw her a shower!
i had been thinking how fun it would be to throw a camping shower so one of my friends and i got together and started planning. it was so much fun to plan this fun shower for our friend! 
all of these pictures were taken inside at night so it was a little difficult to get the lighting correct but i tried my best to salvage some of them. 

i created some really fun invites to set the tone for the theme and color scheme of the big day.
names and details changed for privacy. :)

i uploaded the invite into my new little etsy shop.
it's closed right now 'cause i'm on vaca. :)

i wish i had better pics of all the little details and decorations! 
my friend alisha made the cutest little banners that we hung around the house.


i took two Christmas trees that i had in the garage and we hung this banner from them. it went on one of the food tables.


we used mason jars for the cups and i just tied twine around them with little tags bought at an office store.
the cute orange and white striped paper straws are bought from hey yo yo.


we cut a log in all different sizes and placed food tags on top that coordinated with the invites.
and alisha made these amazing s'mores cake pops.


becca's favorite cupcakes are spice so we made spice cupcakes and just added a coordinating cupcake topper! easy!



my friend christie made these amazing s'mores chocolate chip cookies.


and my friend lorie made these ridiculously yummy s'mores rice krispie treats.


for a favor, we just kept it super easy and just added a cute coordinating tag to a bag of trail mix!


we all love you, becca! and we all love samuel!
