Backyard Campout Birthday Party Ideas

At the end of summer, we celebrated my son's 9th birthday with a backyard campout. Originally, I planned to keep it very simple, but three days before, decided that I should put a little effort into making it feel like an actual campout. And so, let the craziness begin! It took me three full days of frantic shopping, crafting and cleaning, but I pulled it off!

    This is SO great!!! Thanks for the fabulous tips that we will now apply to our wedding planning. :) Since he proposed while we were camping (our favorite thing to do) this will really make our rustic theme come together!
