With that said, how do you throw a city girl the “great outdoors” party of her dreams? Lizzi’s daughter, Camila, turned 7 years old last winter and all she really wanted to do was go camping. But between the freezing temperature outside & their home base in New York City, a camp out just wasn’t going to happen. Not to be deterred, Lizzi & Gaby got their creative juices flowing, & Under the Stars was born. With activities like “Make Your Own Dream Catcher” & a scavenger hunt in their nearby park, the kids had an awesome time. Check out some photos from Camila’s special day! Trail mix never looked so good.

Every Bang & Boom party comes with a special t-shirt for the birthday girl or boy, & in this case, a tee pee design fits the theme perfectly! Lizzi made personalized gift bags for the guests & every child took home an Adventurer’s Camping Lantern.


The rustic, outdoorsy theme was surprisingly easy to carry throughout the party. A scavenger hunt is a great way to get kids outdoors & using their thinking caps!

Trail mix makes a perfect snack for kids to enjoy during the party. Lizzi’s included almonds, dried cranberries, banana chips, cashews & dried mango.
