If you’re not familiar with the term “Coachella” or a “Coachella Themed Party”, you should probably look it up right away because every year, people from all over the world would flock to the United States to attend one of the biggest arts and music festivals during the summer known simply as Coachella.

Aside from arts and music, Coachella is all about promoting freedom. With Coachella being postponed this year due to the Coronavirus outbreak, we’re hoping that our list could help inspire you to create the perfect Coachella-themed party in your backyard!

  1. Teepees are a MUST

Are looking for that real Coachella vibe? Make sure to set-up some teepees for your party. Scatter your teepees around your backyard or you could even have them indoors too. Be sure to deck them out with colourful pillows and patterned rugs for your guests to relax and mingle in.

2. Decorate your party!

A bohemian / Coachella party is incomplete without themed decor! Decorate your backyard with Coachella party props to make your party look like the real deal. After all, it’s all about creating that magical and free-spirit atmosphere for your party.

3. Create the perfect picnic setup

Take advantage of a sunny day by including a picnic into your Coachella-themed party! Roll out the carpet and scatter the cushions along with some rustic-looking props to give your picnic the perfect outdoor setting. Or keep things warm and cozy inside & provide blankets to keep everyone warm.

4. Make an awesome playlist

Coachella is all about music, which is why it is important to ensure that your Coachella-themed party comes equipped with the right playlist. Head on over to iTunes and check out songs from previous Coachella performers like Chvrches, The 1975, Tame Impala and Lana Del Rey. Alternatively, you can also check out Coachella-themed playlists on Spotify.

5. Set a boho dress code

Let’s not forget, Coachella is also all about fashion. A Coachella party wouldn’t be complete without its Bohemian dress code. Make it compulsory for everyone to come to the party in their best Coachella-inspired outfit. From denim shorts to basically anything with a fringe, you can easily find ideas on websites like Pinterest.

6. Food & Dessert

A party is not a party without food and drinks. Get creative with your buffet-style spread and go for attractive party foods to stay in theme. Lay out a wine and cheese grazing board or go American/ carnival style with mini hot dogs, corn dogs, sliders, popcorn, fairy floss & slushies (you can even add alcohol to the slushies to make frozen cocktails).

Even though there won’t be Coachella this year, that doesn’t mean you should wait till next year to immerse yourself in all the fun. With all these tips and tricks, we’re certain that you’ll be able to throw your next Coachella-themed party in no time!
