Turning 40 is definitely a milestone, but turning it into a weekend adventure in Montana is surely the best way possible to celebrate! We couldn’t have been more thrilled to help Blake, his wife Heather and their friends celebrate Blake’s 40th Birthday in West Yellowstone.
They called us five weeks out, told us they had 48 people coming from various places, but primarily in California, and what could we do in West Yellowstone? The staff at the Bar N Ranch and Under Canvas Yellowstone set the stage for what would be an incredible weekend.
This adventurous group thought glamping in Montana’s finest would be an experience of a lifetime – and they were right! Since we got to stay on sight, it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for us as well! We couldn’t believe that we were bringing this amazing group to nights of 29 degrees!
Reed & Lee, with my now good friend, Britney planned a weekend filled with themes, surprises, amazing food, great tequila and some true Montana love. This weekend was filled with so much intricate detail that we’re going to take three blog posts to show you all the amazing detail.
The guests arrived via bus from Jackson, Wyo and pulled up to the guest tent to staff wearing “Blake faces.” It was hilarious to see them pumped to jump off the bus and get the part started. As they checked in to their tents, they were greeted with gift bags filled with goodies and essentials that Heather had carefully chosen for each guest. Bug Spray, Sunscreen, chapstick, Yellowstone shirts and more! Plus…they had a surprise for Thursday’s evening – each guest has a carefully chosen Kigurumi animal costume. Chosen to match their personalities, it was the attire for the evening. It really broke the ice!
We threw a Welcome Fiesta and everyone enjoyed an amazing first evening under the tent!
