Spring break is knocking on our doors, and we’re ready for it! While we may not always have the time (or budget) to take a big vacation, we ALL need to take advantage of this season’s chill time.
The IKEA® Spring Refresh Guide showcases totally drool-worthy outdoor pieces that serve as the perfect inspiration for this backyard campout.
So to help you reimagine your spring plans, we’re teaming up with IKEA® to help you transform your backyard into the ideal glamping destination.
First, you’ll want to create a stable structure. We strung a piece of rope from two trees + used a bamboo stick for support. The JASSA pre-cut + SOMMAR fabrics were PERFECT for our dreamy boho tent.
We definitely wanted to add some mood lighting, like with this SVARTRÅ LED light chain.
After you build your tent (just drape some fabric over a taut string) + add a touch of mood lighting, it’s time to fill your glampsite with some other essentials to keep glampers happy!
The best part of a glampout is that you’re supposed to be comfortable, like at ALL times. So it’s absolutely essential to create the softest, most comfy space ever.
To create the ultimate glampout base, we even made a pillow blanket (pilanket? Er, I guess we’re still working out what to call it).
Now that you have the base, it’s time to raid your beds, couches + rooms to fill your camp with the coziest + comfiest materials you can find. You’ll want to snuggle under something warm in the night.
Everyone has heard the expression, “Eat, drink, and be merry,” and it especially applies to this glampout.
You’ll want to keep their bellies full and happy with some tasty treats and snacks. Side note: I hope you noticed that gorgeous JASSA serving plate.
The ÄPPLARÖ / KLASEN serving cart is perfect for some outdoor food prep. In addition to being super functional, the dark stain makes it very attractive to the eye as well.
Set out a spread of snacks to enjoy, but you’ll also want to keep your guests entertained during your time in the *great* outdoors.
Create a game zone filled with fun activities that are easy and accessible for a group of any size to enjoy.
The ÄPPLARÖ table/stool section covered in the GORGEOUS SOMMAR 2017 tablecloth was the perfect height and base for our backyard party.
All that’s left is to sit back and enjoy the evening! Ghost stories, charades, dance parties, and stargazing are optional, but fun is a guarantee. BRB, setting up my glampout now. Laterrrrr.
