La Vie Bohème: An Inspired Dinner Party
Embrace the season for entertaining with the free-spirited and creative style of la vie Bohème—the bohemian life. A boho-inspired dinner party celebrates the pleasures of life, drawing rich flavors, the beauty of nature, and the warmth of good friends to the table.
To capture the artistic spirit of a bohemian gathering, create a scene of happy disorder. Place mismatched serving ware on a rustic table, surrounded by a variety of seating options. Add vivid color with an abundance of fresh flowers; play with texture through mixed textiles, from linen to silk to fur; and accessorize with touches of whimsy.
Delight your guests with our Provencal-inspired menu that invokes the distinct flavors of the French countryside. It starts with a lavender-infused blood orange cocktail and a rustic cheese board with herb-dusted, candied nuts. The main course pairs a roasted root vegetable salad with a hearty lamb stew and crusty bread. And for dessert, a towering olive oil and orange blossom cake will leave your guests swooning.
