Festival Vibes At Home Inspiration and ideas for your own at home festival

Decorations to get that festival vibe

Decorating your space ready for your stay at home festival can really create that happy atmosphere and get you in the mood for your festival. There are many ways to decorate your space including:

  • Bunting
  • Banners
  • Pom Pom’s
  • Tassels
  • Flower garland
  • Lights
  • Bubble Machine.
  • Flower lettering
  • And more..

To add to the festival feeling I even made some wristbands just like you would get at a festival. I used canva to create them and then printed and laminated them so we could keep them afterwards in a scrapbook!


You cant have a festival without having a playlist loaded up and ready to go. We often use Spotify to create playlists for our events and parties.

There are many festival playlists already on Spotify but we have an eclectic mix of music tastes so we created our own. Its your festival so make it your own ask the kids for input too they will love picking songs for you all to dance to!


Activities could be as simple as having a kitchen disco to a full on weekend camping set up in the garden. Here are some ideas for some inspiration.

  • Camp in the garden Put up the tent grab a few blankets and create a festival little retreat on your lawn.
  • Fire Pit S’mores / Toasted marshmallows – Is there anything better than sitting out toasting marshmallows on the fire pit or BBQ?
  • Midnight Movies – Grab yourself a white sheet or screen and a portable projector and create a little outdoor movie theatre to enjoy some classic movies after sundown.
  • Hot Tub Glow Stick party – Wait until the sun goes down and through a few glow sticks in the hot tub or pool. My kids really enjoyed this. we put some chilled out music on too to create a fun activity for them.
  • Flower Crowns – This is such a nice activity to do. grab a cheap bunch of flowers or pick some of your own form you garden. Add some florist tape and wire. then you can just tape your flowers to your crown. So Simple looks amazing for your festival at home event though.
  • Kitchen Disco – We invited our friends to join us for a kitchen disco via zoom. we all picked a few tracks each for our play list and we danced together in our kitchens together yet apart. It was one of the best nights. Of course you don’t have to invite anyone else if you don’t want to be sure to get dressed up for your disco you could even add some sparkle to your outfit by adding some face glitter.


Festival at home food doesn’t have to be all about dirty burgers and cheesy fries though they are a great place to start.

Camp breakfast- Bacon sandwich, campfire breakfast casserole , Pancakes.

Camp Lunch – Picnics, bbq,

Dinner – BBQ, Hotdogs, Pasties, Pizza,

Snacks – S’mores, Tuckshop sweets, Popcorn (For Movie nights),

Online Festival

There have been a bunch of online festivals popping up during the pandemic with activities such as camp outs, craft lessons, talks, concerts and more. If you do a little search online (Youtube/ facebook) I bet you could find some things you could incorporate into your festival at home.

    I shared a similar post recently, we had a mini indoor festival as we don’t have a garden. We’ll miss our festivals this summer but the kids enjoyed being indoors. Love the ideas here.

    How many cute fun ideas! My son is older, he is 26 years old, but I will translate your article for my sister-in-law, who has small children. I will definitely make them happy by giving them an unexpected festival.

    I love it! I don’t think I’d ever have wanted the ‘festival’ to end!! It was probably cheaper than a ticket to Glastonbury too!
