The Wood Party 🌲🔥🥳
The Wood Party is an annual party/rave/festival ⛺️ put on by me, India Jackson and Viki Jackson. Set in the woods 🌲, it’s a multi-day event of dancing 👯♀️, drinking 🍻 and crazy activities and decoration 🎊. We started it in 2010 and each year keeps getting bigger and better. With more time spent on building fun decorations, outfits 🎩 and bars. Hence why it deserves a place in my project journal 🙃

The Wood Party year 10, my 30th party and Vikis actual 29th. Lots to celebrate, minor issue with COVID-19 so we were legally limited to 30 people. But that didn’t stop us having a lot of fun and doing even more decoration.
- Got some oil barrells to use as table tops
- Got various stuff from prop houses to make some cool new decorations
- Got a bunch of creepy dolls heads
- The crazy lazer light from the Shellpits Club came in handy
- India made a fun shutter backdrop something :)

The Wood Party year 9! This year we focussed on building a whole set of bars and furniture ⑁. Using reclaimed pallets, painting 🎨 them fun colours and building/assembling them into bars and seating.
We also saw the return of the giant balloons 🎈, hammocks, fire dancing 🔥, jellyfish umbrellas ☂️ and glitter station. We tried out some new festoon lighting 💡 which worked super well and a bubble machine 🧼!
This was the first year with a threat of rain 🌧, so we prepped with high hanging sails and extra marquees. Turned out it only rained on the Friday so the main day on Saturday went along smoothly.
I also spent a good few hours weaving strip lights 💡 into a black fishnet jacket for my evening attire.
