Indoor glamping is the perfect option if you’re looking for a unique party idea that will impress your guests. It brings together the luxuries of glamping with the convenience of an indoor venue, making it a great choice for any occasion. Want some inspiration to get started? We’ve got some amazing indoor glamping party ideas for your next event.

What is indoor glamping, and how is it different from outdoor glamping?

When you think of glamping, you probably think of a luxurious bell tent surrounded by tall pines deep in a forest. Sure, that’s the picturesque idea, but there are other ways to go about it, especially if you’re throwing a glamping party for your little one’s birthday.

In short indoor glamping is glamping indoors. Confused? It’s tough writing a word’s definition with the word in the definition.

A better way to put it? It is the luxury camping version, sans nature.

You can set up small tents for each guest or even one big one in the middle of your living room. The object here is creativity. Let your imagination run free and have fun with the decor and activities.

There is no fighting the gnats, mosquitos, and flies or worrying about the weather. When you’re glamping indoors, you get all of the comfort, style, and luxury that comes with the territory; however, you forego mother nature and the adventure. Leave the bug spray in the cabinet and put your umbrella away; indoor glamping is about comfort.

The best indoor glamping party ideas.

Here are some of our favorite glamping party ideas. Whether you’re just starting to toss around some thoughts, or maybe you’ve seen a friend throw a glamping party, these will help you figure out what you need to do.

Theming your party.

Start by choosing a theme for your indoor event. A dinosaur-themed indoor glamping party would be suitable for a young one. Have everyone arrive wearing their favorite dino shirt or in full costume and give prizes to the most creative costumes. Not sure if dinosaurs glamped, but the kids will surely love it.

Teepee Tents.

Teepee tents are all the rage right now. They provide a rustic and cozy atmosphere that is perfect for any party. Look no further than these chic accommodations if you’re looking for a unique and stylish indoor glamping venue. They are easy to put together, and you can make one for each guest, so everyone has a place to stay. If you have enough space (and a tall enough ceiling), you can also make a single large teepee tent.

Ridge tents.

These are simple but extremely cute and easy to make! The classic ridge tent. With a few poles and a sheet, you’ll have this up. Ridge tents will give your glamping party a somewhat of a “Yogi Bear” feel to it, as these tents are iconic of retro camping.

The classic bell tent.

If you have the room for it, you can always go with a classic bell tent – right in your living room. It might be a bit extreme, but we’ve seen it before. Take note, though, that they are not easy to put up. However, when it’s complete, you’ll have the most authentic indoor glamping experience possible.

Glamping trail mix.

Glamping Trailmix with Nuts Berries and Candies

Camping and trail mix go hand in hand. You really can’t have one without the other. It’s also something that goes well with glamping. Throw together some of your favorite nuts, seeds, dried fruit, and chocolate chips for a tasty and healthy snack that everyone will love. This is a great activity to do with the kids as well.

S’mores indoor style.

Indoor Smores in the Oven

What’s glamping without s’mores? You can make indoor s’mores in the oven or even on the stovetop. All you need is some graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows. Simply preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and place the graham crackers on a baking sheet. Top with chocolate and marshmallows and bake for about 5 minutes or until the marshmallows are golden brown. Enjoy!

A fun spin to this is using waffle cones. Fille them up with chocolate and marshmallows, wrap them in aluminum foil, put them in the oven, and you have s’more-like ice cream cones!

Elegant lighting to create an ambiance.

Indoor Twinkle Lights

Give your guests a starry night by hanging some twinkle lights or lanterns around the room. You can even get creative and make your lanterns out of mason jars. This is an inexpensive way to add some elegance to your indoor glamping party.

Candles are always a good idea, too.

No indoor glamping party is complete without a few candles. They provide both light and ambiance, creating the perfect setting for any gathering – especially for couples. Choose scented candles that compliment your indoor space, and make sure to place them in safe locations where they won’t be knocked over.
