A bridal shower camping theme is great idea for the couple who love the outdoors. You're sure to know them. They prefer a tent to a hotel suite. They like cooking over an open fire, instead of using a microwave. So, plan around what they love.
You could pitch a tent, fire up the grill, and prepare an outdoor event. You can also bring your camping ideas to the comfort of indoors. Either way, this can be a very fun theme.
• A bridal shower camping theme lends itself to an outdoor location. If weather permits, take advantage of a backyard, or park. Of course, you can also create this type of setting, inside.
• A tent, flashlight, or hotdogs, are all appropriate designs for your invitations. Ask guests to dress casually. Politely suggest that they bring gifts related to the camping theme.
Your camping decorations:
• mother nature provides the backdrop at an outside location
• Inside or out, you can display a tent.
• Have a real or fake bonfire.
• The centerpieces can be lanterns.
• Blankets can be used for effect.
• Any outdoor equipment, such as fishing rods, can also be added.
Do you need games for your bridal shower camping party?
• Bride-to-be bingo is a fun option. See which guest guesses the most theme related gifts.
• campfire songs, such as Kum ba yah, and Old Smokey
• play the couples favorites
• have nature sounds playing softly
Your menu can include:
• plenty of simple snacks...bowls of peanuts, pretzels, potato chips, and onion dip work well.
• your main meal can be hamburgers, hot dogs, macaroni, potato, and tossed salad. Don't forget catsup, mustard, and relish.
• make a hearty punch for your camping theme party.
• Dessert: this is the perfect time to roast marshmallows, and make s'mores. If your party is indoors or out, there are a variety of kits available to make s'mores. Make sure you have enough supplies for everyone, if you want your guests to participate.
