How To Decorate For a Boho Thanksgiving?

Decorating your homes for Thanksgiving adds an element of fun and love. Thanksgiving doesn’t need to be totally traditional it’s all about spicing up your home décor ideas with creativity and style. Now, we talk about the décor, it’s not about stressing over perfection but feeling special this Thanksgiving. So, you don’t have to go overboard or invest a lot of time or money into it. Just a little boho chic, warm inviting, and elegant décor are enough.

Hallway and Entrance:

In order to make your home décor stand out, try adding aspects of natural elements to give an earthy vibe. Like planting few red maples in pots or containers and placing them in front of your entrance door. Decorate the front door by hanging a wreath decorated with some bows and tassels with a splash of autumn colors and leaves. 


Decorate the mantle above your fireplace with a boho element. Place some rustic-colored frames with some traditional designs or simple art in monotonic color schemes on the mantle. Introducing some hanging on the wall will give a boost to the overall design. None of the boho décors are complete without a green component. Place some plants in front of the fireplace with some metallic touches. Add a colorful rug on the floor and a comfy wooden chair with some retro cushions. Never be afraid of playing with the unexpected colors it will add a spark into your overall theme as a bohemian style gives you the leverage of expressing your thoughts in the most sophisticated way.

In order to focus on the details, hang some tassels in orange and skin color along with the green and skin stockings on the fireplace. Place some jars with candies and holiday cookies over the fireplace for a Thanksgiving vibe. You can also add some orange flowers in the vases and place some pumpkins and pines in the living room to give a boho touch along with autumnal colors. Add some knitted boho lampshades to give an ethereal look.

Bohemian décor is all about the mixture of colors, patterns, and aesthetic art. Mostly warm colors such as yellow, red, orange, sienna with the excess of violent shades give a perfect bohemian look. It’s the accurate sense of minimalism and expressionism. 

How to set up a Bohemian Dinner Table for Thanksgiving?

When it comes to setting up the dinner table, the first thing that comes to your mind is comfort and peace. So, a bohemian touch with a little sparkle of colors on your tablespace will make the whole outlook stand out giving a warm and chic look. Let’s see how you can do that. 


Firstly, the selection of tables is the most important thing, go with the vintage wooden floor tables to give a relaxing vibe with comfy colorful and leafy printed floor cushions or poufs as a substitute for traditional hard chairs. Also, throw a vintage neutral-colored rug as a base of your table. A floral centerpiece over the rug will add to the overall spark.

Now for styling the table, use a hand-knitted mushroom-colored table runner to give a perfect bohemian touch. Also, use some pastel color napkins with some colorful stone napkin rings. Bohemian fashion is the name of focusing on details. 

Florals and Candles:

Your holiday table is incomplete without some flowers and candles. Don’t go for a usual flower bouquet rather add some unique and original florals such as dried flowers, strawflowers, succulents, or ferns. Use some bayberry or amber candles in wooden or metallic candlestands to make your space smell fantastic. Hanging some yellow lights over the table gives a magical and rustic boho vibe. 

Serveware and Plates:

Finally, for the dishes, let’s add some bright colors to your table. Use some colorful plates with symmetrical patterns and golden linings. Layer them up with some neutral-colored large plates for a mix-fit. For serving your grilled turkey use some white serving dishes with some glitter glazing to give a flawless bohemian look. Consider using rose gold or blue-violet-toned glasses to add a little texture to your table.

For a subtle bohemian look stick to some core colors with lots of neutrals such as white, gray, or sienna. Bohemian décor is all about a retro and comfy look with an element of style and fun. Boho designs give you the freedom of playing with colors.
