The first step in creating a bohemian wedding tablescape is choosing a color palette. Focus on one base color, and then pair accent colors that compliment your base color. When deciding what colors to use in your wedding, let nature be your guide. Blend the gorgeous colors of fall from orange, terracotta, brown, and a hint of pink to create a beautiful color scheme.
If you and your significant other each have a favorite color you want to include in the table design, do so in a subtle way. For example, pink and gold are my favorite colors. So, I added pink flowers to the centerpiece and gold utensils to the place setting.
The key to recreating any themed tablescape is choosing the right fabric. Cheesecloth is the perfect material to design a boho tablescape because of its airy and lightweight feel. I ordered my burnt orange cheesecloth table runner (9ft) and table napkins (16 x16 inches) from Snassy Crafter on Etsy. The quality is great and the price is budget-friendly.
Style this cheesecloth fabric as a table runner on both round and rectangle tables. Place these boho cheesecloth table napkins on top of white plates to create an elegant place setting. Pair your cheesecloth table runner with matching table napkins for a cohesive design.
The highlight of any wedding table setting is the centerpiece. Make your own wedding centerpieces with dried floral arrangements on a budget. Place a dried palm leaf in an amber vase as a base for the arrangement. Next, fill the vase with artificial cabbage roses and burnt orange ombre artificial roses. Add texture to your flower arrangement with natural bunny tails, dried wild oats, and preserved natural gypsophila. Brighten your floral design with preserved eucalyptus leaves. Place this stunning floral arrangement in tall Amber Glass Growler Jugs or use these medium-size amber glass bottles as vases.
Fill various amber vases of different sizes and shapes with bushes, eucalyptus leaves, burnt orange ombre artificial roses and spread them throughout the table. Add a bit of glam to your centerpiece with a set of gold candlestick holders and ivory taper candles.
Set your wedding table with this DIY boho raffia placemat ( see tutorial below). Pair this rustic placemat with plain white ceramic plates and gold utensils. Fold your table napkin into a knot for a boho touch and put it on top of your plates. Complete your place setting with a colorful terrazzo place card.
