Oh my god! The camping wedding came and went yesterday and it was so elegant and beautiful and fun - a true reflection of, Kim and Steve, the happy couple. When the bride first approached me with her idea of a camping inspired dessert table I was totally on board! How fun!
My mind started spinning with ideas. Camping, camping, camping... Obviously s'mores would have to be involved. Maybe trail mix? A plate of gorgeous nature-inspired sugar cookies? We'd figure it out. I couldn't wait to get started. Take a look at the results of a table that reflects the newlyweds' love of all things woodsy. Enjoy!
Working with a palette of chocolate brown, mossy green and a happy pop of orange, I did a lot of research and planning to make camping in the woods elegant enough for an occasion as special as a wedding, while still keeping it loose and playful. Talk about pressure! I started by constructing the tent feature I knew I wanted as the centerpiece of the table, then filled in with all the fun details.
Twigs collected from the park were used to create this rustic "Happy Campers" sign.
Pine cones and moss-filled mason jars with tea lights for a little rustic romance inside the tent.
Toadstool cake pops.
Camping inspired sugar cookies.
Wood grained with couple's initials.
Swiss army knife - love these!
Acorns and oak leaves.

Chocolate dipped and graham cracker crusted jumbo marshmallows on hand whittled (by yours truly!) pine twigs make up these amazing "S'mores on a Stick".
