RV Birthday Party: How to Throw a Rockin’ Party Away

from Home

Article Contributed By Sally Writes Over 40 million people camp each year in the United States. With prices of theme park vacations rising steadily, and studies that show time spent in nature can improve one’s general health, it’s no wonder Americans are taking to the outdoors to spend their free time. Camping is fun for the whole family, and you can drive an RV to any climate or locale that suits your fancy. If you’re celebrating a birthday on the road, use these tips for a super fun, low stress event that’s sure to be a hit. Superior Style If you’re going to throw a party, you’re going to want to decorate. String lights are festive all the time, and you may have those for summer nights spent under your RV awning, but you can frame the windshield as well with a strand for an extra festive look. You may want this party to have a theme, and paper plates, napkins, and cups are a great way to incorporate that. You can play off of those colors with your other decor to designate the theme without having to spend a fortune. Paper lanterns fold flat and are ideal for decorating when you’re tight on space. They can be hung over the string lights so they illuminate for a festive flair on their own. Hanging balloons you can blow up yourself are also very festive, and with a little tape you won’t even miss the helium. You’ll probably want to cover your campsite picnic table with a tablecloth, and you can slip a disposable one in the party theme colors into your RV before you go. Oh, the Fun We’ll Have Of course, you’ll need to entertain the party guests. Use a white sheet draped over the side of your RV and a projector to show an outdoor movie. Sit everyone on picnic blankets or beach towels for the show, and serve up some campfire-cooked popcorn. If you have games, like horsehoes or cornhole, in your RV already, set up tournaments and have everyone rotate and take turns playing each other. You could add three-legged races with a spool of twine to tie legs together, or get really goofy with the neck game, where players pass a piece of fruit or a ball to one another using their necks and no hands. Since you’re already outdoors, water balloons are also a great source of fun if it’s warm enough to not worry about anyone being soaked. Sweet Eats Feeding party guests may seem daunting with just a small RV kitchen and a campfire, but what better party food is there than camping food? Make things interactive by having guests cook their own hot dogs and s’mores. You can get fancy with a toppings bar for hot dogs, and different kinds of chocolate for s’mores. If you have a cookie cutter that goes with your theme, you can make sandwiches cut into shapes and skip the cooking all together. “Dirt and worms” is always a hit and requires a little room in a fridge or iced cooler, but no cooking or electronics if you have a whisk. The food doesn’t need to be fancy, and you can even make an entire menu of food that doesn’t need to be refrigerated beforehand if you go the PB&J with a cookie cutter route. Whoever you may be celebrating while camping, know that you can do it in style without sacrificing space in your camper or suffering from a small kitchen. The most important thing is the guest list, and when your family is camping together, you have everyone you need. If there’s a campsite close to home, you can make camping the party!
