This weekend I'm throwing a nighttime summer camp themed party for around 20-30 (adult) guests. I'm planning on hot cocoa (with add-your-own-booze) and a craft table (with God's eyes
, natch) in the kitchen, a blanket fort with flashlights and ghost stories in the study, s'mores and sparklers in the backyard, and snacks, drinks, and mingling in the living room. What else can I add to make the evening super fun?
I was thinking of organized games or campfire songs, but my crowd is pretty laid-back and might not take to planned loud or physical activities. I'm planning on printing up little merit badge stickers so people can give each other badges. Are there any other activities that could be available as ice breakers for those who want to participate without it being required? What music would set the mood? (so far all I'm thinking is the soundtrack to Where the Wild Things Are and Peter Paul and Mary) What snacks? Perhaps most importantly, what cocktails???
