East Coast Coachella Without Goop and Pinterest

During a recent podcast episode of Sip and Shine, there was talk about East Coast Coachella.

 

 

I thought I would share what we actually did- because to be honest, in typical Carrie style- I have never been to Coachella and planned a whole party around it. Just to give you a disclaimer: you will see much better ones on Pinterest- but I am Pinterest and Snapchat challenged.

Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on what your school of thought is) I didn't spend my teenage years preparing for the Electronics Olympics because the dial-up modem took too long. So I called it Flower Child for those who gave me the questioning looks- I know- not quite the same.

So we had the party on the lawn of an old plantation- I hate saying plantation because it sounds so politically incorrect. Anyways it is in Virginia and a big piece of property. We had a bonfire and I put flowers around the chairs- and we had hired a singer to come. He performed 1960s/1970s songs in front of a huge outdoor screen with Point Blank playing in the background. He looked like Greg Brady circa 1974, probably with the original suit from the time frame. He may have confused this party with Shannon Beador's.

On the grass, we also had hookah and cornhole (why does that sound so dirty?). Overall, it was a really chill vibe. A bonus was when John Cheesecake showed up and worked the party showing us his skills that he learned in prison. Good times, good times.
