Bohemian Garden Party

It all started with this page from an Instyle magazine in 2004 (yes, I have saved it all these years):

It's from Natasha Gregson Wagner's bohemian themed wedding.  She's an actress. What has she been in lately? Is she still married?  I don't know, neither do I care.  Her wedding was GORGEOUS.  French food, (cheese and crepes), a vintage feel lavender cake, and red velvet couches set out on. the. lawn.  Sigh.

Lately I've been thinking more and more about this beautiful boho event, the more I want a bohemian garden party of my own.  I've put together an inspiration board to help me plan it all out:

You'll probably have to click on the pic above to get the full feel.  I went a bit more exotic and colorful - I love the lavender color palette but I wanted something a bit more bold and jewel-toned, more lanterns than chandeliers.  It's a bit eclectic, a little vintage, a little homey, and lots of color and textures mixed together.  Bohemian can mean SO many styles these days, but this is my version.  I'd still love to do a more "french vintage" type of boho party, but this is what I was feeling at the moment.  I can't wait to see the real thing... hopefully soon!

What do you think? Would you want to join us at this outdoor living room?    

Lanterns (cannot find for the life of me!  If it's your photo, please let me know!)

  1. Awesome pictures! This is what cool looks like. I am actually planning a wedding in one of the best Chicago event venues and this is something that I’ll be taking inspiration from. I have just begun, and I think I’ll be able to pull off a great wedding. Really fabulous!
