Buck Fever Hunting Themed Birthday Party

Hunting Themed Birthday Party

I had so much fun planning my son's 11th birthday party! He's really been getting into hunting with his dad, and like most hunters he's obsessed with everything the lifestyle includes!  So it was only natural we celebrate in true hunter fashion!

Our jumping off point for the decorations was our abundance of deer antlers. My husband and I own an online hunting store and guide service and we spend a lot of time in the hills finding and collecting these beautiful treasures. We hung the antlers from the rafters of the pavilion we rented for the party and put them all around on the table and in front of it.

 I'm a big DIY fan and made almost all of his decorations and cake myself. For his cake, I put foil in a cake pan before I baked it and kind of crinkled it around so that when I poured the batter in, it caused the look of "cliffs" when it was finished baking. I got the fake trees and candy rocks at a local baking shop, and sifted through all of his hunting figurines for the rest of my decorations. If you don't already have those D&B, and Tractor Supply have toy sets that include all of these.

Hunting Themed Party Decor
 My Silhouette really deserves a ton of credit on these party decorations! I cut out the deer images for the cups and plates, the "scent killer" for the drink container and the letters for his camo banner.

Hunting Themed Party Favors "survival rope" bracelets
 His guests enjoyed some fun treats that we tried to keep in "theme", some of my fav's were:
  • Gun Powder- pixie sticks
  • Survival Rope- survival bracelets we made
  • Paint Balls- cheese balls
  • Clay Pigeons- dipped oreos
The rocks that you see a lot of the items pictured in were purchased at Joann's in the floral department, they're really meant to be flower pots, anything else that didn't fit in one of the rocks I covered boxes or other containers in camo wrapping paper also purchased from D&B.

"Hunt" camo letters are by Funky Letter Boutique and can be purchased here. Hope you love our hunting themed party and can use some of these fun tips when creating your own little hunter's party!
