This time of year, when the kids go back to school, always makes me think of fall. How much fun would it be to have a camping party when the leaves are changing and the weather is cool enough for sweaters and roasting marshmallows over a crackling fire? And if it's too cold to sleep outside, then bring the party indoors and have a camp-in party instead! Here's some inspiration if you would like to have camping party yourself. Enjoy!

I hope everyone had a great summer! I took a little time off from the blog to enjoy some time with family over the summer and it was great! From now on, I am planning on posting to this blog 2-3 times per week. Get notified via email of new posts by subscribing to this blog in the box labeled "Subscribe via email" that is in the right side column of this page. Then you won't miss a thing! And now, back to your regularly scheduled programming:
Sometimes the birthday boy or girl doesn't want a cake, or you would like something different, so you have to think of an alternative. Here are a few ideas for you:
Clockwise starting from the top left:
1. Create a "cake" using a cupcake stand and cupcakes. Here we made a sandcastle cupcake stand and filled it with beach-themed cupcakes.
2. Stack donuts and insert a festive cake topper to celebrate a fun birthday or a special day.
3. We showed you this back in July, but you can create an ice cream scoop "cake" just by stacking scoops of different flavored ice cream on top of each other to make a tower. Add a candle and celebrate (but make sure you work fast or your cake will melt!)
Here are more great ideas that I found while searching around:
Make a watermelon cake for a refreshing alternative to cake
