10 Creative GLAMping (Glam Camping) Party Ideas


Glamping (a.k.a. “Glam Camping”) is such a popular theme for young girls birthday parties right now… but I thought it would be a fun twist to dream up a GROWN UP version! So here are 10 ways to create an adult-friendly camping themed party that's a little more glitz and glam than those weekend summer trips you might remember as a kid. This is a really fun theme for milestone birthdays, or just a fabulous excuse to get your friends together for an outside-the-box day of girlie fun!

  1. Glittered Pine Cones: A little sparkle makes these natural decorations have a fun party feel!
  2. Rhinestone & Gold Canteens: Keep hydrated in style with decorated canteens.
  3. Chap Stick Favors: “Keep Calm and Glamp On” Chap Stick favors – affordable, customizable and totally useful!
  4. S'mores Martini: Adults-only s'mores… cheers!
  5. Burlap & Ribbon Runner: An easy way to dress up any picnic table: burlap runner + lengths of colorful ribbons.
  6. Pink Camp Fire: I love this fun “faux fire” idea for inside or out: pink paper flames adorned with glitter!
  7. (Healthy!) No Bake Granola Bites: Energetic camping snacks that are healthy AND tasty.
  8. Paint Your Nails: Relax and paint your nails… this is GLAMping after all 😉 Let your nails dry in the great outdoors while you sip on a S'mores Martini.
  9. Crepe Paper Party Tent: Crepe paper streamers turned into a colorful outdoor “tent” sounds like a one amazing party space (and conversation piece!) to me…
  10. Gold Camp Lanterns: Turn this classic camping element into fabulous party decor with a feminine touch… like a coat of shiny gold paint, for starters!
