Decorating Pete

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!
