8th Birthday Planning | Inspo, Venue, Theme, Etc…

This post may contain affiliate links.

Last post I made we still needed to figure out the venue, food/refreshments, entertainment/games, and party favors. And we have decided on a camping birthday party at our house, in our backyard. (yay! We won’t have to pay for a venue or be on a time crunch!) No turning back now! We have almost exactly one month left to plan the rest of her party.


I have ordered these cards from Etsy


Our house, the backyard


I’ve been looking on Pinterest and getting a lot of great ideas. We will have a s’mores bar, punch, colorful goldfish, worm pudding, water, and the kids can roast their own hot dogs and marshmallows on the campfire.


Flash light tag, photo booth, glow in the dark ring toss, outdoor Jenga and Tic Tac Toe


I plan on making some of the decor. Picmonkey has some really cute camping themes that I could use.

Party Favors

Mini flashlight keychains, emoji keychains (Jayli’s ideas), and “to go” smores bag

To do:

Send out invites

Make photo booth props and decor

Make cupcake toppers (if we are even having cupcakes?)

Make piñata?



I really enjoy party planning and I’m looking forward to pulling this all together. I’ll share the progress with you guys as it gets closer.

This is what I have bought so far…
