One of the most popular wedding and event themes of the day is certainly “bohemian,” “shabby” or “vintage” chic.” It’s also one of our faves for flowers — this theme provides ample choice of flower type and color and lets you get especially creative with your choice of container or accents. This theme provides a relaxed and very pretty atmosphere at any wedding or event. We’ve gathered some great tips to help you plan.
Bohemian chic is suited to a variety of venues but seems especially appropriate for outdoor garden, woodland or rustic settings. The vibe should never be too stuffy or monochromatic and even if not outside, ideally your venue will contain natural element such as greenery, wood, and yes, lots of fresh flowers! The more flowers and greens the better to create a lush and layered “bohemian” look.
Boho chic themes work in a variety of colors. You could go very bohemian and use rich jewel tones of all kinds, which cultivates a warm and liberated almost “carnival” atmosphere.
Shades of pink and white with green or teal accents also work well with a boho theme, and a garden or woodland setting. Think antique dressers, woven hearts, vintage candlesticks, ropes of pearls, and a lush, romantic vibe. Daisies, roses, hydrangeas and peonies would work well. Be sure to order plenty of flowers as they are a key component of any boho event.
