Hunting and Fishing Themed Birthday Party

Super fun outdoor themed birthday party. Hunting, fishing, camping, all things boy!

 

 

My oldest son’s birthday is just around the corner. Last year I threw him this camping themed party. It has by far been my favorite party EVER! It was seriously so fun! My husband is an avid outdoors-man and loves anything rugged and manly. So obviously my son does anything his daddy does so when we thought of this idea. We were all so excited.

Camping, hunting and fishing…OH MY!
 
This cake turned out so cute. I have now officially changed my name to Betty Crocker. But don’t be fooled by this cakes perfection. I made it from a box cake mix and store bought frosting. IT WAS SO EASY TO MAKE! I was so nervous. But it turned out perfect and couldn’t be easier! It was so tasty and delicious! Instructions below…

 HOW TO MAKE THE CANDY FIRE
 
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F.
I used butterscotch and cinnamon hard candies.
Line a cookie sheet with wax parchment paper.
Very lightly spray with non stick spray.
 Randomly scatter candies in a single layer on your cookie sheet.
Once the candy has melted (about ten minutes) remove from oven.
Allow the candy to cool completely. Once it hardens, break it into triangular pieces. (I hit mine with the blunt end of a spatula.)
VIOLA! CANDY FIRE!
 
 
TO MAKE THE CAKE
 
Use two boxes of yellow cake mix and two round cake pans…. Follow instructions on box.  ha ha ha ha
Top with two cans of chocolate frosting.

TO DRINK

I wrapped Fruit Barrels in my cute printable and attached a straw. 

I love fruit barrels for this genius reason.

Stab your straw straight through the silver lid on top, TA-DA now you have a kid friendly, spill resistant, drink!

ACTIVITIES:

We played “deer, deer, MOOSE!” (our own version of duck, duck goose) We played “don’t let your balloon touch the ground”. Surprisingly, it was awesome and the kids didn’t get too rowdy! I set up our old tent, that is on its last leg, for the kids to play in. I just let them all loose. They had a ball

MONEY SAVING TRICKS

My brother in law cuts down trees for a living. I was able to pick up these wood slabs FOR FREE!

I used a bunch of pine cones that I found FOR FREE!

This plaid table runner is actually a blanket scarf that I already had! 

I pulled these trees out of my Christmas decor that I already had.

I found this amazing faux wood plastic backdrop! Can’t find a rustic lodge to host your party at?

NO PROBLEM!

Make your own cabin anywhere with this awesome, affordable backdrop!

This backdrop was huuuuugggeee.

I had enough to cover the back wall, the table, and some of the floor!

GENIUS!
