HOW TO THROW A GALENTINE’S DAY PARTY WITH BLUSHING BOHEMIAN STYLE
Hint: It doesn’t need to be totally red and pink — but it does need to be cozy.
Valentine’s Day Galentine’s Day is really all about love, and your ladies have been there by your side through pretty much everything – if that’s not love, what is? This blush-toned, bohemian party shoot by Twenty Three Layers is the perfect way to shower them with your appreciation.
Translation: This is not a gathering you should be burning the midnight oil the night before to prepare. Keep it sweet, keep it cozy and keep it simple. For Boskoff, that meant starting with one staple piece — a fringed tablecloth from Anthropologie — and building upon it with items she already had.
“For me, my vision of bohemian style includes tons of pillows, a textured tablecloth and lots of blush accents,” says Boskoff.
To extend the outdoor party space, Boskoff layered two rugs on top of each other. The smaller rug, from West Elm, lent the textured coziness bohemian style, and the larger flat rug gave guests more space to stretch out and relax.
“I love the coziness of sitting around on pillows instead of chairs, and using a coffee table instead of a dining table,” says Boskoff. “And whether you’re inside or outside, blankets can add a special touch if someone wants to throw one over their shoulders or put it on their lap.”
“I like serving foods that don’t require a fork and knife — easy things guests can pick at and pass around,” says Boskoff. “And instead of just having wine, I decided on a pink lemonade punch. I wanted to keep within the color theme!”
Add a little extra touch by freezing edible flowers in the ice cubes for your punch, an easy party trick that will delight your girlfriends.
A final party trick: Relax.
“Try not to spend all night in the kitchen or busying yourself too much when guests arrive,” says Boskoff. “You’re all each other’s dates, so give a dress code like pajamas or cocktail attire so nobody feels out of place.”
