One Stylish Party shares its top tips for pulling off this event.
Find your inspiration. I thought it would be fun to put a unique spin on the popular glamping party theme, so I used the classic 1980’s Troop Beverly Hills movie as a jumping off point for the decor. I sourced linens, pillows and paper partyware in the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel banana leaf pattern and contrasted the lush greenery print with lots of pink – chairs, balloons, dessert table and even a pink tent!
Serve themed snacks and treats. The food table included wildness girl snacks such as homemade trail mix, mint chocolate chip popcorn and of course girl scout cookies. And because no party is complete without cake, a hand painted palm leaf cake rounded out the treats on the table. Although most of the snacks were kept simple, the individual treat cups, striped bags and colorful dessert pedestals helped tie everything together with the party theme.
Focus on the details. I wanted the space to have a lush, tropical feel similar to the Beverly Hills hotel, so I used lots of fresh greenery and palm leaves to transform an otherwise blank white space. I looked for unique ways to incorporate movie quotes, such as a retro letter board sign that read “it’s cookie time” and a survival kit favors that read “in the wilderness of life you can never be too prepared.”
Provide ample opportunity to play. The glamping party consisted of three different areas for the girls to roam around: an area to eat, a tent to play in and a bed to jump on! The girls started by enjoying some snacks and treats together at a children’s dining table. Once they were done eating, they did some dancing to 80’s music, played in the tent (the peek-a-boo window was such a hit!) and ended the day with jumping on a bed and having a playful pillow fight!
Keep the Party Going. Send your guests home with a sweet reminder of the fun time they had at the party. Each of the girls who attended the party received a pair of pink flannel pajamas, a pink satin eye mask and a custom Beverly Hills Hotel inspired doll to take home.
