Charlotte's 7th Boho Party

Party Recap

We had our party on the rooftop of a hotel in Grass Valley, they have a gorgeous garden up there. We started the design knowing I wanted them sitting on pillows around the table. I used two pallets stacked on top of one another for the tables. I bought white and gold tassel blankets from the Target's Lily Pulitzer collection to put underneath the pallets. I handmade 14 pillows finished with tassels, fringe, and pompoms for the girls to sit on. I gathered old doilies from antique shops and sewed them together to make table runners which draped over then pallets. I rented a variety of vintage dishes and gold flatware from Roots Reclaimed Vintage Rentals to finish off the tables. the centerpieces were a variety of old bottles with wildflowers.

I knew each girl had to have a flower crown, I handmade each flower and crown as well as some round sunglasses that I finished with little pink flowers and little bloke letters with different sayings, '''wild heart," "gypsy soul," "flower child."

For the DIY terrariums I used mason jars with personalized tags for each girl. They got to fillet with soil, fish rock, gold stones, mini seashells and a succulents. I also handmade the fringe diamond piñata, I used cardboard, tape and tissue. I filled the piñata with a bag for each girl filled with old time candies.

For the food we kept it light and fresh with delicious homemade sandwiched from Emily's Catering and a pesto tortellini, fresh fruit and my moms famous caramelized apples and brie and fresh strawberry lemonade to drink.

    Thank you...the sunglasses are round and I got them at forever 21 but fit the smaller girls. The flowers were from the trim section of Joanns fabric store, it was in a ribbon and I cut them individually.
