How to create the perfect boho style party

Boho chic has become one of the most Pinterest worthy party themes, and a quick Google search will quickly lead you down the rabbit hole of whimsical bohemian soirees filled with rustic wooden furniture, vintage rugs, patterned throw cushions and twinkling lanterns. You’ll swoon as you scroll through boho style party ideas – but looking at dreamy images is one thing, while putting the style into practice is a whole different kettle of fish. The boho look is all about effortlessness, but it actually takes a lot of effort to get it right. If you want to create the perfect boho style party, we’ve got some tips to pull it off with flying colours.

What exactly is a boho style party?

Boho (short for bohemian) is all about combining vintage, hippie and ethnic-inspired items with earthy tones and elements of nature. The boho style celebrates free spiritedness and conjures up a charming old world feeling, with a focus on natural beauty. Given the eclectic and vintage inspired aesthetic, boho styled parties and weddings have become hugely popular in recent years as they allow plenty of room for DIY touches and can therefore be very budget friendly.

What type of party is suited to boho style?

Boho styled parties are incredibly versatile and the boho theme can work with a wide range of party types. The boho style has a distinctively feminine edge, so boho parties are often favoured for hen’s parties, baby showers and bridal showers, but they’re also incredibly popular for casual wedding receptions, engagement parties and birthday celebrations. There’s really no party that won’t work with a boho theme, so the sky’s the limit.

Elements of a boho style party

One of the great things about a boho themed party is you can really make the style your own by putting your own spin on things. You might have some incredible vintage items you want to include or engage your creative side to make some boho inspired decorations of your own. A typical boho style party can include items like rustic wooden furniture, native flowers, bunting, fairy lights, dreamcatchers and other vintage items.
