For our party this month, we decided to GO BIG and fully experience our Outdoor Living theme by staying two nights at a campground. Now, when I say "living outdoors," I mean it in the Little-Yellow-Couch-sense of the word. Which is to say, we invited three other gals to go glamping...not camping...with us, just outside the historic (and awfully darn cute) town of Plymouth, MA. You'll see the full range of glamping gear we brought to decorate our little homes away from home later this week. But today, we just want to show you the welcome gifts we had waiting for our guests when they arrived. In lieu of invites, we put together watercolor sets to be used during some glamping downtime. Each set contained 5 watercolor postcards, a brush and a set of paints in a sweet tin box.
While we wouldn't call ourselves "hikers," we did take a walk down to the beautiful lake and along the path around some of the little cabins. Perfect spots for unfolding a camp chair and pulling out a postcard and watercolors to paint the scene.*
* Full disclosure: we were so busy going to to dinner and antiquing that most of us didn't have time for this activity. Ha! So much for sitting with nature! But I still think it's a great idea and I do hope to relax with a paintbrush the next time I go glamping!
