Campfire & Cocktails

Hosting a summer cocktail party doesn't have to mean getting fancy. It's as easy as sending a fun invite and whipping up some exciting treats! Take your next cocktail event with friends and family outdoors and go glamping (glamourous camping that is.) Host a campfire and cocktails themed party and create a casual chic event that will have everyone feeling warm and fuzzy.


Send out invites that warm everyone up to the big event. The look of this backyard scene is classic and gets everyone in the mood for outdoor fun. Fire Pit Invitations by Odd Balls

If you are fortunate enough to have a large fire pit in your backyard, this is the perfect time to put it in use. Make sure the flames are safe to cook on and are not harmful. If you don't have a fire pit, placing charcoal in aluminum foil lined terracotta pots is an easy and inexpensive way to work this theme. Just be sure to keep everyone safe near the open fire. Be sure to have enough skewers, sticks, and campfire cooking utensils for all guests. Backyard Fire Pit via Decoist

Turn the party up a notch and let guests know this isn't your first time around a camp fire. Make unique adult s'more desserts like these bourbon, bacon, and nutella s'mores. Do we need to say more? Bourbon, Bacon, and Nutella S'mores Recipe via Susquehanna Style

As your guests begin to depart, be sure to leave them with a parting gift. Making a s'more take home favor is as easy as making the yummy campfire treat itself! Pack a box with graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows so guests can enjoy more fun at home. Make Your Own S'more Favor Box Kits via The Sweetest Occasion

There is nothing like the ooey gooey goodness of a roasted marshmallow in the center of a s'more. Experiment with your favorite s'more dessert recipes and host a summer camp theme party of your own this summer!
