No doubt you’ve heard about the glamping trend by now. Glamorous camping is the new, vogue way to vacation. Many of us crave the wilderness experience, yet have no wish to give up the luxuries of home.
If you don’t want to pack up the car with all of your fabulous decor, there are plenty of upscale resorts jumping on the bandwagon, offering posh outdoor accommodations to guests who want a taste of nature, without all the dirt and hard work. These glamping destinations can be found worldwide.
In the USA, The Resort at Paws Up in Montana offers both luxury home rentals as well as safari-style tents. All of this is located on a working cattle ranch, with a river running through it.
Knights Glamping at Leed’s Castle in England offers up a different style of glamping. Transport yourself back to medieval times in the colorful striped tents with four-poster beds and fur throws, and a castle only a hop, skip and jump away.
Or, if you’d like, you could travel down to Panama, to Palmar Tent Lodge. These accommodations are situated between beautiful beaches and lush rainforest.
If you’ve never gone camping before, and the idea of ‘roughing it’ scares you, these locations cater to you. The resort glamping experience can ease you into the wilderness.
However, if you do decide to create your own glamping experience, there are many items you can take to give it more of a high-end sparkle. Think twinkling lights strung from tree to tree, colorful lanterns, LED pillar candles or lush flower arrangements, to name a few.
Don’t forget the necessities for tea time: linens, tea warmers, strainers, teabag caddies, and last but not least, the tea itself! Try flowering teas, aromatic blends, dessert teas or herbals. Many paper products today, such as paper plates, cups, napkin holders & cake plates, all have more of a sophisticated design and can be used for your glamping tea party.
Now that we’ve given you some ideas to start, we want you to dream up your own theme! Your next tea party should be a glamping party!
Whichever way you decide to try, whether you pack your own items and dress up a tent somewhere in the woods, or enjoy the luxury of a resort, relax and enjoy your surroundings! It will be a glamorous experience you’ll never forget!
Glamping has existed for over 100 years, though the actual name was coined in more recent years.
