A relaxed, boho inspired dinner party is the perfect way to enjoy good food with friends in a stress-free environment. The casual, but cheery atmosphere lends itself to a relaxed vibe that encourages your guests to kick back, unwind and enjoy spending time together. We’ve put together seven pieces of advice on how to throw an incredible relaxed boho dinner party. Read these tips, then try it out for yourself!
1. Opt for the floor
Ditch the chairs and use floor cushions and rugs instead. By removing the chairs, you also remove a layer of formality for your event—plus the floor cushions will bring an instant atmosphere of relaxation. They also create a great opportunity to add some colour and texture to your styling.
2. Arrange an abundance of blooms
When it comes to florals, we say the more the merrier! Even at a relaxed dinner affair, you can never have too many blooms. The floral scent will bring a sense of calm and serenity to your dinner party. 3. Go overboard with colour
When aiming for the boho look, vibrancy is key. Look to a bright colour palette of warm colours for your tablescape styling and décor. 4. Invite your besties
What good is a dinner party without your nearest and dearest? Invite a bunch of your best friends to share the occasion with you. You provide the dinner, and they’ll provide the laughs! 5. Serve up some delicious food
A relaxed dinner party means you can go for casual dishes. We suggest fresh Turkish bread with an assortment of dips, along with antipasti goodies for guests to nibble on. For the mains, serve meals that guests can serve themselves from serving platters—or if you’re daring enough, from straight out of the pot! 6. Don’t forget the drinks
A key element to any dinner party—the drinks of course! Ask your guests to bring along their fave beverage to sip on. 7. Relax and enjoy!
Eat, drink and be merry! Enjoy sharing these moments with your friends over delicious food and drinks. Don’t stress about cleaning up until the night is done! Photography Andrea DiCenzo | Styling Renee Douros | Florals Lady Larissa
