Girl Camper Table‑Setting Tips from Janine

  • When I arrive at a campground, I always take my small broom and dust off the underside of the picnic table. I don’t want any spider webs on my legs!
  • I use old sheets from thrift shops as tablecloths. They’re inexpensive and easily replaced if they get stained. I tend to layer them for added color and fun.
  • I have a set of bench covers I made from an old cutter quilt that I put on the seats so I don’t get splinters.
  • I use thrift-store brass candlesticks to hold solar lights that I bought at a home supply store. They soak up the sun all day and make the most beautiful light pattern on the table at night.
  • I take whatever empty can I have from whatever I was cooking and use it as a vase for wildflowers on the table. Simple, simple, simple, but so pretty.
Sitting in the trailer with the windows open, laying in bed, flipping through a magazine? I would never do that at home.

Janine Pettit is a lifelong lover of camping who took a 25 year sabbatical when she married a “resort” type guy! She discovered that camping was still in the cards for her when she stumbled onto an article about a women’s outdoor adventure group that travels around the country in RVs, meeting new friends, checking off bucket list adventures and doing things she had only dreamed of. Janine has become an Ambassador for the Girl Camping movement and encourages women to go places and do things in her blog and podcast.
