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. Specifically, I focused on the glamping scene in the movie that took place at the Beverly Hills Hotel, so I decided to weave the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel banana leaf pattern throughout many of the party details, including table linens and pillows from Minted. The banana leaf table runner couldn’t have been any more perfect on the Pottery Barn Kids dining table, accented with bright pink dining chairs! 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 decided to style my own florals for this party, which was easier than I thought it would be thanks to Fifty Florals! From the wide selection of wholesale flowers, to the incredibly detailed instructions on how to process and care for the flowers, I was able to create exactly what I wanted for this shoot and stay within my budget.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, individual treat cups, striped bags and colorful dessert pedestals helped tie everything together with the party theme.When the girls arrived, they each got to pick from an adorable couture outfit from Rainey’s Closet. They began the party with playing in the tent, dancing to 80’s music and enjoying snacks and treats together. But the best part was switching into their matching pajamas and ending the playdate with a friendly pillow fight!
