What makes a party a hit among friends? Aside from serving mouthwatering food and filling the venue with soothing or upbeat sounds, a laidback ambiance is on top of many people’s lists. After all, parties are supposed to be fun, chill, and relaxing. If you’re tasked to host this year’s first party for your family or group of friends, you can use the pre-wedding party of Maxene Magalona and Rob Mananquil as your peg.

Aside from maximizing the idyllic vibe of Boracay and the glorious sunset, the stylish newlyweds also took inspiration from Coachella, one of the music festivals they attended together. As guests shared photos of the happy gathering on social media, we can’t help but feel inspired. The lively prints worked well with the comfy pillows and teepees. The setup also highlighted a few whimsical elements like dreamcatchers and fairy lights. Turn your garden or lanai into a memorable venue with these picks and ideas:

The teepee served as an interesting accent and as a background for many photos.

In your own garden, set up teepees where guests can relax and enjoy refreshments.

Since you're doing the shindig outdoors, comfort needs to be given importance. Complete the teepee with pillows, cushions, and a rug. Choose items with interesting prints and pops of color to go with the vibe of the party.

If you're going for pillows with neutral tones, bring in a rug with lively colors and patterns.

Polish the boho, Coachella-inspired theme with dreamcatchers. Maxene loves dreamcatchers—she uses these as decor in her bachelorette pad. Feel free to mix-and-match pieces in white and other colors for a fun, playful vibe.
