Glamping – it’s a girl thing and it is coming to the ridge! I’m hosting a clamping weekend this fall for my sisters and the planning is already underway. There will be activities like bread baking, hiking, crafting, outdoor chick-flicks (Mama Mia, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, How to Make an American Quilt- suggestions welcomed) a vineyard picnic, or maybe a trip to the orchard, campfires and of course glamping up our tents. This weekend sister Edna (my sister not a” Sister sister”) came by to help me on a trial tent glamp-up.
While it’s a must that our glamping accommodations be fabulous, here on the ridge we glamp on the cheap. To that end, our yard sale treasures this spring have been heavy on the glamping theme with lovely textiles, accessories and furnishings suitable for making our tents, which will be pop-ups and picnic tents, fabulously glamorous. With sister Enda’s pop-up tent and the yard sale’n inventory of lovely stuff, we put together a space that is the essence of glamor + camping.
Sis arrived with her pop-up tent and a vision of a filmy, white, shabby chic space; which I love, however I was feeling a bit more color. As it turned out, her tent was blue and we had only enough white sheers for three walls, so entered my colorful tablecloths and a touch of bohemian; the marriage of our visions resulted in a glorious space with a wonderful vibe.
The day was windy and we often found ourselves engulfed in a flowy mass of white, billowing in the breeze; so we anchored the bottom of the fabric by threading a string through the hems and securing the string under the stakes at each tent pole.
Then we invited the rest of the sisters out for a preview…
and a few treats.
I’m LOVE’N it!
