Happy Glampers

Have you heard of glamping?

{Glam + camping = glamping}

Glamping is the newest travel craze!  It includes awesome destinations with luxurious accommodations.  The “tents” are decked out like a 5 star hotel complete with butlers!  It sounds like so much fun!

Unfortunately, it’s a little out of my budget…and my friends’.

Every year, some girlfriends and I head south to go floating on the Ozark Scenic Waterway.  This year, I decided to glam it up a bit for these happy glampers!

The swag…

I had not used the heat transfer material from Silhouette but this was the perfect excuse to give it a try!  I busted out some dark pink heat transfer and made these adorable shirts!

The hair pins are simply floral scrapbook embellishments hot glued onto some bobby pins I got from my PYP grab box!

Keeping with the pink and black theme, I pulled out my pink vinyl adhesive and made these adorable personalized drinkin’ cups!

Then I packaged it all in these cute zebra craft bags that I found at Hobby Lobby!


The digs and decor…

Believe me when I say, this cabin was not luxurious.  It was four cement block walls with two double beds and a bathroom.  That being said, it sure beats putting up a tent!

To cutesy it up a bit, I made these cute little black yarn wreaths and added a floral hair clip.

My favorite part was the lantern lights!  I used this adorable pink and black scrapbook paper and adhered it to some dixie cups.  Then I made an “x” in the bottom with an Exacto knife and inserted the lights.

The happy glampers…

My friends were so excited to get their party favors!  We had a great time eating, drinking, and laughing!  

It was the perfect summer day – 88 degrees with plenty of sun.  The float trip itself was a 6 mile tube float down the river which took 8 hours!  {I thought we would never get off the river!}

The whole gang!  Excuse the photo quality – this was from my phone!

(Notice the broken foot in the picture above?  I was not about to let a little fracture keep me from the fun!)
How do you camp?  Have you gone glamping?
