Have A Boho-fied Christmas!

The current circumstances have inevitably called for more simplified Christmas celebrations this year. With the ongoing pandemic, we are encouraged to gather in small numbers and celebrate at home.

This does not mean that the joyous spirit of Christmas is canceled though. This year, we are challenged to be creative in our ways of simplifying Christmas, but nevertheless, keeping its celebratory feel just the same.

I cannot think of a better Christmas theme for this year, than a bohemian Christmas! The essence of the bohemian style is simplifying and finding beauty in the raw and minimal. Not only is this a timely choice, but it surely will be a unique way of celebrating this happy season.

Surely this unconventional suggestion brings about a lot of questions. Read on! You might just have your questions answered in this blog.

How to decorate a boho Christmas tree?

Stick to bohemian elemental décor to successfully create a boho Christmas tree.

Truly, it’s not about the tree, but Christmas just won’t feel as “Christmas-y” without it, right? Here are a few tips on how to spill boho all over your holiday tree:

  • Choose a muted or earthy color motif – Diverge from the traditional red, gold, or green Christmas colors. To bohofy your tree, experiment with neutral colors. Beige, brown, and bronze colors are good examples of a boho palette. Try mixing and matching pastel colors to accent the green of your tree. If you still want to put some Christmas red in there, then do so! It would be a good idea to choose one vibrant color to accent your neutrals.

Put some thread décor pieces like dream catchers and pair them up with metal-made décor. Explore the use of beaded decors as well. You can also add up some woodwork to match your neutral palette.
