So since all my plans to bring Dolly to the playa have been cancelled, I’m taking Pete – my friend Tejas’ 10′ x 14′ two room tent.
Pete will need some decorating in order to cheer me up from my funk over not taking Dolly, when I had excellent decoration plans for her.
Pete, though sturdy and comfortable, is not very flamboyant or fun, as is. So Pete is getting a makeover.
Feel free to comment, if you have ideas.
First of all, Pete is getting decorated with fairy lights. See those external poles? Well they’re going to get decked out like a fucking Christmas tree with them, in blue, green, and purple.
Just because those are my favorite colors, I decided to run with them.
I will also have a 20′ x 20′ silver canopy over Pete, giving us shade and respite from the heat, however small.
See? Quite boring. But when I jazz it up with 12 paper lanterns (which have battery powered lights), and some festive pennant banners, it starts to look a little more cheery.
And of course, the inside of my tent needs a little love too. I’ve decided that I’m going to start by decorating Pete’s ceiling with a disco ball and some white fairy lights. Flip on the switch for the lights, give the ball a twist and voila! Instant disco party fever.
Yeah, I can feel the magic starting to happen. Pete’s going to be a little love tent, that’s for sure!
Bow chicka wow wow…
