Camping Theme Breakfast & Party Favors

So we treated the teachers to a back to school camping themed breakfast.  Here’s a few of the table centerpieces I created to add to the festivities…

This one includes a mini-fir tree from my Christmas stash, some Lincoln Logs and crayons I borrowed from my kids, and a couple of battery operated tea lights.  Did I mention the decor was pretty much free stuff I found around the house?

This centerpiece includes another mini fir tree wrapped in burlap, a “tackle box” (aka my daughter’s new pencil box), and a paper sack filled with “fish bait” gummy worms.

This was an easy addition – peppermint “Owltoids” in a glass bowl:

Another prop from my daughter, I perched this teddy bear in an iron-garden-trough-thingy I found in my craft stash.

This centerpiece was easy to make with a few paper sacks with scrapbook paper made to look like owls. I found the idea for this on Pinterest here.

I still haven’t found a use for this square grassy wreath I found at Tuesday Morning last year.  But it worked for this centerpiece with a lantern and candle I had in my living room.  I added burlap and baker’s twine to the candle along with a battery operated tealight. Easy peasy.  And free.  =)

I also made tent cards to decorate the tables.

And this one is by far my favorite.  Friends still makes me laugh. Tweaked from the brilliant art found at this campsite.

Finally, I made some S’more treats as a party favor for all the teachers and staff.  Just take two of these deluxe graham cookies and a stacker mallow…
