End of Summer S’mores

It’s been a very busy few weeks.  I meant to share these fun s’mores ideas earlier as a late summer idea, but I’m just now getting around to it a few days before fall starts.  Just under the wire!  S’mores are fun in the fall too though, right?

A couple of weeks ago we had a s’more themed party for our family.  I loved how the decorations came together so quickly and easily – and they looked so cute!  First I made a chalkboard sign for our kitchen featuring s’mores for late summer.  (Please note – I’m still working on my sign making skills.  In fact we just took a class about hand lettering last weekend.  It was very fun, and I’m getting better!  Practice makes perfect.)

I also had our daughter make a picture for our fridge using brown rectangles, her handprint and glitter glue to make a campfire; chalk lines for smoke; a brown pipe cleaner for a stick; and a cotton ball for a marshmallow.  She smudged brown paint on the cotton ball so that the marshmallow would look toasted.

The centerpiece for the s’mores party was my favorite.  I found a s’more tote on Amazon and filled it with marshmallows on sticks.  I also filled Ball Jars with all of the things you need for s’mores – graham crackers, marshmallows, chocolate bars, and of course a campfire.  The campfire jar was filled with orange and yellow tissue paper.

For an extra special effect, I put a battery operated tea light inside the tissue in the “campfire” jar to make it look like it was actually glowing!

I used brown and white plates and napkins for the party.  I absolutely loved how the table looked!  In fact, I loved it so much I saved the centerpiece and used it a second time at our daughter’s Girl Scout meeting.  This time I made it more of a picnic theme with red and white checkered plates.  To make easy s’mores, we served graham crackers that the kids could dip in chocolate frosting and marshmallow fluff.  It was a bit sticky but very easy, and the kids loved it.
