It’s that time of year again where thousands of people gather for one of the most popular, upbeat music festivals -- yes, we are talking about COACHELLA! When we think Coachella, we think of the glowing sunsets, the ferris wheel, amazing music, and boho-style galore! So, what could be better than throwing your very own Coachella themed party in your backyard (well actually going to Coachella may be better, but throwing your own music festival is still pretty awesome)?!
We are throwing our very first TWINCHELLA PARTY for our 25th birthday!!
We got inspired by all the outfits, decorations, and simply watching everyone CELEBRATE LIFE, that we wanted to bring it all to our backyard for our birthday. If you are looking to throw your very own music-festival themed party -- from creative decorations to killer dress codes, below is some inspo for the Coachella party of your dreams!
We made our invitation look like a ticket and added all the information needed for the party!
Encourage your family and friends to come dressed as if they are actually going to Coachella - boho-inspired, hippie, punkish, flowy skirts, stacked jewelry, you name it!
TWIN A is rockin' half-up space buns (double buns) with a touch of glitter down the middle! Plus a 70s themed outfit vibe.
TWIN B is wearing low pigtails with rubber bands going down! Plus striped pants and a cropped top!
We styled our WAA jewelry to match our outfits and the theme of the party! TWIN A (left) is wearing the Snake Chain Choker, layered with the Venice Necklace from the California Dreaming Collection. Twin B (right) is wearing her favorite Vida Choker, with the Melrose Necklace also from the California Dreaming Collection.
Now, this is the fun part! Here is where your imagination and creativity juices will flow, and your backyard will transform into the Coachella party of your dreams!
We placed rugs in almost every spot we can find in our backyard. Simply grab the ones from your living room or family room and place them outside! OR we got the cutest rugs for ONLY $5 at Five Below!
We made this space in our backyard as our photo booth section and a stage for our family and friends to DJ! Our photo booth was handmade by us! TWIN B designed the "I'd rather be in TWINCHELLA" banner and got it printed out at Walgreens. We also hung long strands of ribbons, laces, and tassels and placed them on either side of the banner. You can find these materials at your nearest local craft store.
Here is what our “Line up” sheet that we created looked like! We left it blank so that people could write down their names and take turns being the DJ of TWINCHELLA for 15 to 30 minutes! This is a fun way to interact with your guests and get a variety of songs playing!
We sanded down some wood pallets and stacked them on top of one another to create a fun size spot for people to sit!
We printed out and framed some west coast vibe photos and hung them on our fence! The week of the party we had a DIY night and made these sweet dream catchers! You can find the materials at any craft store located in your neighborhood!
Here are some other simple decorations that were included in the party:
These funky pillows were a great deal at Five Below!
We wanted our guests to be involved as much as possible and really feel like they are at Coachella. We created 2 stations - Flower Crown Station and Glitter & Tattoo Station.
FLOWER CROWN STATION
Go to the nearest craft store and grab 3-4 strands of your favorite artificial flowers, plus green flower tape and green florist stem wire. Take the flowers apart and place them in cute bowls for your guests. The green florist stem wire will be the base of the crown, where your guests will tape the flowers on. Print out a set of instructions and VOILA you got a flower crown station!
GLITTER & TATTOO STATION
This station is pretty easy and was a hit at our party! Everyone wanted to add a touch of glitter to their outfit and choose their favorite tattoos! You can find the glitter and gold temporary tattoos on Amazon!
