Planning Courtlin and Skylar’s dual graduation party was so much fun for me! When they approached me with the idea of doing a festival themed party my mind began to run wild with all things Coachella!
What festival themed party would be complete without a ferris wheel? Since we couldn’t bring in the real thing ( trust me I would have) I decided to bring a smaller version in throughout the party.
We hung boho style dream catchers with ribbons, flowers, and greenery from the ceiling of The Doyle.
We had several different tee pee’s set up around the room. Our designer even created this tee pee with vintage and lace ribbon. We used a variety of rugs and boho poufs to make it comfortable for guests to sit down and take photos!
This festival inspired desert table wouldn’t have been complete without the ferris wheel cupcake holders. The Doyle owner, Steve is actually an art enthusiast and an artist himself so we used the existing artwork as a backdrop for a lot of the design elements around the room.
This cotton candy station was a fun dessert for guests to snack on throughout the event.
We created signature drinks for both the grads. Since one was graduating high school and the other college we can up with one alcoholic beverage and one “virgin” or non-alcoholic for the underage kids to enjoy. They were named after the girls respectively.
I loved these festival inspired wristbands! Since there were underage guests we had different wristbands for guests under 21.
Rainbow grilled cheese anyone? I approached our preferred caterer Sin City Smokers about doing festival inspired food and I just had to have rainbow grilled cheese sandwiches. They made for the cutest photos ! Instead of having one buffet or a plated meal we opted to have food stations around the room with several different options for guests to keep them moving around just like at Coachella.
For centerpieces we had an eclectic mix of candles and vases with flowers.
Unicorn inspired cupcakes with glitter.
We had a fortune teller and palm reader inside one of the tee pee’s for a little fun!
