glamp camp!

i can hardly believe this party was almost a year ago and i am just now getting around to posting it! my friend sarah and i were in love with the whole glamping idea and knew we had to throw a party! we had so much fun bouncing ideas off each other, shopping together, crafting, sending each other pics…planning and setting up is such a fun part of the whole party experience. sure, enjoying it and visiting with friends is fun, but, watching your party that you plan for a couple of months come to life..well..there's just nothing like it.;) i love planning with sarah because we really just become one mind and everything just comes together as we vision. i'm always thankful to have such a fun, creative friend to partner up with.:)
our photo op set up;)
we set up a table for hot food..and it was filled to the brim that night! so yummy!

drink station

 flowers in vintage thermoses all around...

s'mores station;) it was fun sitting around with the girls and roasting marshmallows!

 on the invitation we included a section that asked the girls to bring an appetizer or treat to share and that we would be voting on it that night. i think that little incentive alone helped encourage the girls to bring their favorites and put effort into their choice. in return, we ended up with a night of sampling some of the most delightful dishes.
there was a prize awarded to the favorite hot dish and for the favorite treat.

 our vision was to try and put together an eclectic, eye candyish type set up that still felt cozy and camp like.

 this treat table was dangerous that night as it was spilling over with all sorts of homemade goodness.
 i made these two treats..

 and these were sarah's.

naturally we had to find the cutest matching shirts and sarah got us the cutest matching trailer necklaces to go along with them.
 sarah snapping the last of the pics before the guests arrived.;)
it was such a fun night with our girlfriends.  we talked and ate into the wee hours of the night. looking back on all of these pics makes me want to start planning another fall party!:)
happy glamping!!:)
