romantic BOHO table setting by firelight

A laid back table by the fireplace for a romantic celebration with a boho vibe, speaks to me right now. It’s a perfect dinner setting for Valentine’s or an anniversary or any romantic merriment. Here are some details to set a romantic boho table setting by firelight for all the romantic feels.

It’s the polar opposite to the uber formal fireside table I set last year, which was also very festive. You can see the details of last year’s table here {fireside romantic table for two}. Some things remain constant though- a roaring fire, white roses and bubbly.

All the flickering lights from the candles, lanterns and the fireplace create a wonderful ambience. It’s wonderfully cozy and romantic.

The mantel is lined with a collection of silver candlesticks with assorted pink tapers. The pink color gives a nod to the Valentine’s holiday and the moss heart garland draped on the mirror reinforces the “love” theme.

The mantel decor is simple and evokes a simple romantic whisper. The collection of silver candlesticks is varied and tarnished which is perfect for the boho vibe. You can read all about my silver plate collection here {metals I – silverplate}. The mossy heart garland is also an organic feel which jives with the bohemian vibe. I made the garland last year and you will find all the details here {happy Valentine’s Day}.

Details to setting a romantic boho table setting fireside:

A comfortable throw and plush pillows help set a relaxed and laissez-faire setting.

Casual dinnerware and wood pieces add to the unrefined feeling a bohemian table reflects.

A casual charcuterie board and some rustic bread are appropriate food options for a relaxed menu.

A vintage French champagne bucket is a rustic touch, but adds a hint of refinement, which I always find a way to sneak into table settings.

An old galvanized tub full of fresh blooms is always a good thing. I am partial to cream roses with just the slightest bit of blush which is what we had at our wedding. You can read all about here {faded blooms then & now} if you wish. I couldn’t find cream roses so white is always my 2nd go to.

The secret behind this boho table setting

I set this boho tablescape the other night in honor of my son’s 20th birthday. He’s at University so we celebrated this milestone remotely.

I had an entire menu planned to observe his transition from teen-hood into adulthood. Unfortunately my purse was stolen while I was running errands to buy the supplies for dinner…and it took the wind out of my sails.

The charcuterie appetizer board was the only aspect of the dinner I was able to pull off. Life goes on and Sebastian had a good birthday and that is all that matters.

I hope you enjoyed this romantic boho table setting by our fireplace. I tend to lean towards traditional and classic refinement but the boho vibe has been calling my name lately.
