DIY S'more Fun Themed Party by Sherry

This week we're so excited to be sharing some amazing "Theme Party Ideas" featuring Doodlebug's products. And we hope you enjoy this darling themed party idea by Sherry Cartwright.

Life can always be s'more fun with a little creativity!

That is just what I did to create this little campfire/s'mores party.  It is stinkin' hot in Texas right now, and with a ton of mosquitoes, so it takes a lot to coerce us outside.  

The base of this party was the flowerbox collection.  Its palette is full of earthy tones and pops of color.

There is just something so magical about twinkling lights.  Although we did not build a real campfire in the city, I did have a votive candle in a pretty crafted holder.

First party decor to set the mood of the party is the banner.  In this case, I made four banners to start this party.  The variety made the perfect backdrop for the table setting.  The top banner was made by folding white coffee filters in half, then cutting fringe along the half-circled edge. I added Flower Box stickers to each of them and strung on doodle twine.  So easy.   The second banner is a string of paper lanterns in a variety of sizes and styles. The third banner was made with a scalloped circle punch and strung on twine.  The last one was using the Flower Box banner and ticket stickers, attached to skewers.

Each banner was different, but each was super simple to make.

The place setting, too, was simple to piece together. I cut woodgrain patterned paper to 7x12 and cut two slits on the right side.  I added a sticker and brad, then the fork. 

These napkin rings make the table setting complete.   I simply cut a strip of cardstock, adding a small slit at the top.   I cut flames and a little tab for each to fit into the ring.

There you go, the table is set and the party is about to start.   But, don't forger the graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate bars for making your own s'mores.
