There’s nothing that Melissa and Ricky love more than live music, and for this summer party they asked us to create a Coachella-style festival in their back yard, where guests would experience live music played on a large stage, while enjoying food and top-shelf liquors. And boy, did we deliver—with 3 days of setting up for this party palooza!
We started by erecting a 100-foot-long tent and continued with setting up a massive festival-like stage, featuring thousands of pounds of lighting and sound equipment. For the entertainment, we brought in L.A.vation, the world's greatest tribute to U2, and the famous Philly’s Finest party band. Flanking the main tent, we built numerous custom food booths that served elevated versions of any festival food possible—sliders, lobster rolls, tacos, churros, and everything in between.
We also provided a pizza and an ice cream truck, and alcohol poured like water as guests danced into the wee hours of the night.
