My daughter wanted a camping party for her birthday this year. Her birthday is close to Halloween, so we added a few Halloween details. The guests were welcomed by a “camping buffet” which consisted of hot dogs, of course, and other meal items. They took their plates out to the big tent my husband so kindly set up in the backyard. When finished with the meal, they made “mini-s’mores”: Roast one mini-marshmallow on a toothpick over a candle. Place roasted marshmallow between two Golden Grahams cereal squares and add a chocolate chip. They really enjoyed that part! Soon it was time for the birthday girl to blow out her candles on her giant s’more cake. Then it was back to the tent for hot cocoa and a movie: Wallace and Grommit’s The Wrong Trousers. A microwave s’more kit was given to each as a party favor. What fun! (click on any of the images to view larger.)

I recently designed this for a bridal shower invitation for a lovely friend. She was a beautiful bride at her wedding. I thought of this for the Illustration Friday prompt of racing. Weddings are beautiful and fun, but it seems like there is a lot of racing to get all of the preparations done beforehand!
