Atlanta party planner plans a KIDchella (kid Coachella) themed party in your backyard

Welcome to KIDchella my friends! This blog post is all about throwing the wildest, most talked about event in your backyard! We've got music, we've got bounce houses, we've got everything a kid wants at KIDchella! This is how you throw an KIDchella themed party in your backyard!


The first item of themed decor any guest sees is your invitation, so lets make it wow! For this particular KIDchella themed party, I am looking at my Pinterest Inspiration Board and seeing lots of bright pastel pinks, blues, and oranges, almost like a sunset sky. I also want to incorporate the festival theme, so I went for a all access pass looking invitation!

My favorite places to order invitations are minted, zazzle, and etsy! For this particular party theme, searching Etsy for "coachella vip pass invitations" would be the way to go.

Location Design


Since this event is taking place at your (or whoever has the biggest backyard's) residence, rather than a venue, we need to map out the guest's experience! Guests want to be hit in the face with your party theme as soon as they pull up, so I would post a large photo op. area at the entrance for guests to be greeted and take photos with the birthday kid! This photo would then be printed for them as their all access pass to everything inside the party, and as a keepsake.


As guest enter a tunnel full of balloons and streamers, they will emerge to a paradise of color, music, food, and fun! I would place a stage in the middle, bounce house obstacle courses along the back perimeter, children's tables and food along one side under a streamer tent, and a parent lounge on the opposite side so they can stay separate but still keep an eye on their young ones.


Coachella has quite the array of cuisine but the one thing you will see offered over and over again, and would fit perfectly at KIDchella, are fresh burgers! I would have a grill master serving up some fresh burgers to the kids and adults with a variety of toppings and french fry options! On the table could also be specialty fruit and veggie cups, and other snacks.

I would also go the extra mile and hire a few food carts, one with pretzels, another with funnel cakes, and a cotton candy cart. If parents wanted to minimize the sugar highs, we could have a ticketed system. All kids receive their all access pass and a food cart voucher at the front door. They are allowed to use that voucher to get one food cart item, saving parents from any post party fiascoes.


I understand that a at a lot of kid's parties, there are also adults near by to hang out as well. So for you, we want a real bar with mocktails and cocktails, whether you can receive a drink all depends on your wrist band and drink tickets you would have received at the door.

Mocktails and Cocktails I would serve

Sunset lemonade Broncos Sunset Watermelon Slush

(adult beverage)


The main attractions at this event will be inflatable obstacle courses, an obstacle slide, Henna, Temporary tattoos, colored hair clip ins/hair glitter station, and the stage in the center of everything with a DJ and time for karaoke!

Adults will also have small games to play in their lounge area.


5:00 pm - Guests begin to arrive and take photos with the birthday kid at entrance

5:00 - 7:00 pm - Free party time inflatables and fun stations; snacks are set and bar is open

6:00 - Burgers are served and food carts are opened

7:00 pm - Time to sing and cut the birthday cake

7:10 - 8:30 pm - Inflatables are closed and it's time for the DJ to play music for dancing and karaoke!
