I have been a fan of camping and backpacking for a long time, but I was just recently introduced to the term Glamping! My bffab ( best friend forever and beyond) just bought a tent and I was so pumped to go camping together! Then she informed me that she would not be going camping, but she would be Glamping instead. What? I actually had to Google it. What is Glamping, you ask? Its glamorous camping! Yap, you heard me right. Haaaaa! Because camping is oh so glamorous, sleeping on the ground, bugs and all. I was a bit skeptical at first, not the most practical past time. But, the more I researched, and by research I mean the more I looked on pinterest, the more I was intrigued. Glamping combines your traditional camping set up with a luxurious twist and some of the convinces of home. I decided to give Glamping a go and surprise my husband with a little Glamping under the stars set up!
Along with camping I also love junking and repurposing old items, so Glamping gives me another use for some of my favorite finds! I like to decorate with rustic elements and add a little feminine flare to the items to create a romantic cozy space! You can go as simple or as fancy as you like with Glamping. I took four twigs and crisscrossed them to create a tepee and reinforced the structure with some zip ties and twine. I covered the structure by making a patchwork quilt out of old blankets, sheets, and a lace table cloth. You can even Glamp up an old yard sale tent! A few elements are key to Glamping it up a notch ! One of the universal elements of Glamping is having a comfy spot to sleep. It’s amazing how a sheet and a comforter can transform an air mattress! This beats being confined in a sleeping bag any day! Throw on a couple pillows and you have a luxurious nest!
Side tables can also up your glamping game. I used an old crate I found at a flea market for 3 bucks and an old chest I found at goodwill.
My favorite Glamping accessory was the chandelier! I took an old lantern and I added some strands of glass beads to Glamp it up!You can add battery operated led lights from Hobby Lobby to make it functional.
I also added a rug to make the spot even more cozy and comfortable! I would love to see pictures on how you put your own flare on glamping, so post away! I think this would be an awesome set up for an engagement photo session so I can’t wait to use it! The whole family enjoyed!
