Default Party Yurt

I'll be decorating our yurt for my daughters sweet 16 - want to make it fun.

any suggestions on fun ways to amp up the glamping vibe in the yurt? right now its got twinkle lights around the roofline.

Put lighting around the bottoms of the studs, shining upwards.

So far - I've gotten the lights & now am making a bunting to go around the yurt. I'll hopefully post pictures when I can.

Oh man, I'm still young enough to be all over this. I would recommend Chinese lanterns (the electric kind) in the rafters, a nice rug on the ground, and some balloons, but the plain kind in a single color or two, not the shiny kind with pictures. Since it is a party I would create a seating area for the young people made out of big fancy pillows and bean bags if you have/can borrow any. If you could borrow/rent one of those silly machines that do light affects and then put in a decent music player (one that connects to a phone for people to play their tunes over would be amazing) and then it's just food and drink. I would also recommend doing virgin cocktails. My parents did that for my sweet 16 and even though there was no alcohol in them I felt super grown up and my friends were all super impressed and they were just non-alcoholic mohitos and strawberry daiquiris. Hope your daughter has a blast!

Thanks Mimsy!

I've got twinkle lights, fabric pennants, multi colored tissue paper balls to hang from the ceilings - plus the rugs, pads, couch etc...

Then I've got a sheet to hang up & have a battery powered projector for them to show a movie from my iPad once it gets dark. We will be doing bbq & s'mores over the campfire.

Hubby is going up today to get set up & I'll bring girls over tomorrow - very exciting. Will post pictures next week. Wish me luck.

I think the hardest part will be teenage girls using a porta potty at night in a popup type tent for privacy. or the choice of waiting till morning to come into our tiny cabin with the siblings and parents. we will see.

here is a grainy shot of the party yurt. Hard to tell what was going on, as it was taken by my 10 yo in the dark, through the screen door. but it was a smashing success - 5 girls had mattresses piled on the ground that they moved around at will, for movie watching, glow stick-interpretive dance partying & hanging out.

Looks like it was a hit. Nothing like a party in the round!
