Backyard camping

Veteran’s Day is just around the corner, and this year it falls on a Tuesday. If you’re lucky, that means an extra long weekend coming your way! What are you going to do with that time? If you’re craving an adventure, but don’t want to stray too far from home, why not camp out in your own backyard? I’ve rounded up a few ideas for making sure your staycation is a blast, whether its just you and your sweetie, or the whole family!


Family Fun

Be sure to have lots of snacks, a few games, and plenty  of spooky stories to tell around the fire!

Romantic Retreat

Serve an intimate dinner for two under the stars, complete with cloth napkins, stemware, and easy al fresco options like cheese, charcuterie and fruit.

My favorite kind of meal. Just add candles.
