Festival FOMO? Why You Should Throw a Party Instead

Apr 17 2014 - 6:42pm

Does festival season have you feeling left out? Breathe, stay off Instagram, and have a party instead. Because, while you may not be headed to the desert, you can still have a weekend that compares. Inspired by real bohemian parties, we've rounded up a few doable ideas to bring the music home. After making an epic playlist or streaming the concert live [1], hang those string lights and pile on the layers; it's time to channel your hippie side.

For a true festival vibe, a tent surrounded by cozy lounge pillows is necessary.

If you're planning to host a party indoors, load up on the layers and create an outdoor setting with tons of greenery. We love the look of that hanging wicker chair [6]!

String lights? Check. Picnic table? Check. This party has all the foundations for a fun, festival-inspired bash.

A bar is a must! Get inspired by these cocktail recipes [11], and for a rustic touch, DIY [12] these leather drink tags [13].

No chair, no problem! Floor cushions offer a relaxed look, essential to a bohemian bash.

For an earthy dinner party, opt for a look similar to this table. The ikat place mats are our favorite!

Vibrant colors, especially in the form of tie-dye, offer an eclectic look. Try a similar idea: dip-dying a white sheet and styling it as a tablecloth.

No doubt feathers are a festival fashion accessory, but they also make a great tabletop touch.

Instead of florals, consider a succulent arrangement [24]. Succulents have a desert vibe and are easy to maintain.
