Darling Camping Birthday Party—Food Ideas

My sister-in-law made this darling camping outdoor birthday party for her son’s first birthday. I love the cute details, the burlap and plaid banner, lumber jack food labels, and the food that she served to match the theme.

It was so cute, I asked if I could take photos and post to share with others out there who may be looking to do a similar party; she was happy to let me do so. Which is admirable of her to share!

She and her husband served up grilled hamburgers and fixings that aren’t pictured, below you can also see the cute cake she made for the party!

On the food table, she put Lay’s potato chips in a bowl and labeled them as, “Wood Chips”.

Cheese balls were labeled as, “Fire balls”.


Pretzel rods were dipped and decorated in white and milk chocolate were labeled as, “Birch Logs”.

She had, “S’mores on a Stick” which were giant marshmallows on cake pop sticks, dipped in either white or milk chocolate and crushed graham crackers.

There was also, “Fruit Salad” on the treat table as well.

I loved the metal and tin foil accents on the table because that’s what I use to cook when we go camping.

Neither she nor I took a very great photo of the chocolate cake that she made, but I wish I had because it was so cute!

She used chocolate shards on the edges of the chocolate smash cake to give it an outdoorsy look.

I loved how cute it was. It reminded me of the great outdoors. It could resemble fire, mountains, or logs.
