An adventurous entourage of event planning experts

The DeGroots are California natives who have made Nashville their home. We founded The Happy Campers with the goal of artfully enhancing and elevating weddings, parties, and events with functional yet beautifully styled Campers. A father-daughter owned, family-run business, we aim to make every client feel like family!


We’re a family-first business, small in size but limitless in design and event execution. We enjoy working alongside those we love as we bring our unique event provisions & entourage to elevate your next event.

Why “The Happy Campers”?

Our story started with campers – three to be exact – including a rustic truck turned mobile tap room & a vintage airstream converted into a mobile beauty bar. We aimed to create the event decor, props and provisions we wanted for our own family events. Our family is a happy bunch (it’s tough to catch dad Henry without a smile on his face), so we put it all together and The Happy Campers stuck.

Since then the company has grown to include a myriad of unique event provisions including our Birdie and A-Frame tents, furniture, rugs & gathering tables. We’ve created event spaces and wedding ceremonies for the sweetest couples and biggest celebrities. We’ve put up tents at the CMA after party and Kristin Cavalliri’s Little James photo shoot. We’ve created swoon-worthy event spaces all over Middle Tennessee for the most amazing clients. We’ve watched our family dream grow into a real thing and couldn’t be happier. 


And so the story continues and our name sticks.
