When the trees drop their leaves and frost builds up on the windows, sometimes you don’t want to fight the urge to curl up under a fluffy blankey and let the warmth of hot cocoa wash over you as you slide into a dreamlike reverie. The search for comfort during the months of a dreary winter can be found in a pair of fuzzy slippers or a sweet buttery treat. And since it’s currently below freezing and snow is lurking in the not-too-distant future, we’re happily adapting the Danish concept of Hygge to suit a bohemian free-spirit style. This party is sure to fit like a crocheted glove in winter.

Cozy Boho Party Decorations
Fluffy pillows and soft blankets invite guests to settle in by the fire and enjoy each other’s company. Pull décor colors from the Boho Birthday Girl Tableware. We used touches of mint, light pink, coral and touches of gold to fashion a warm and cozy space.
Because a blazing fire is key to creating Hygge, draw even more attention to it by embellishing your mantel. Frame Boho Birthday Girl Cut-Outs for impact then flank them with a trio of Faux Wood Trees and some frosted bottle brush evergreens. Add a Boho Birthday Girl Pennant Banner and a grouping of Gold Foil Dot Tea Lights for that final sparkling touch.
Dress the food table with layered linens. We started with a solid Mint Green Table Cover than added a Boho Birthday Girl Tablecloth on top. Next, we centered a Burlap Table Runner over both for added texture and color.
- Personalized Pink Dot Mugs filled with Boho Birthday Girl Luncheon Napkins and Mint Utensils, suggest to guests exactly what the party is all about … getting cozy with friends.
- Pair Boho Birthday Girl Cake Plates with solid Gold Luncheon Plates for greater table impact but to also give guests portion options.
- These Faux Wood Trees bring height and warmth to the table and make for a quick and easy centerpiece.
- Add colorful drama overhead with Mexicana Garlands. A grouping of DIY dream catchers pulls the Boho theme right onto the party backdrop.
Cozy Boho Party Food
Nothing says cozy more than hot chocolate. Offer guests a plethora of sweet additions so they can customize their own. Set out whipped cream, crushed peppermints and marshmallows embellished with feathers (TIP: Simply attach feathers to bamboo skewers by wrapping Hemp Cording around them both and securing with an adhesive dot). For added color and yumminess, fill bowls with Pink Gumballs and gold wrapped hazelnut truffles.
In the true spirit of Hygge, keep the menu simple. All of our confections were store bought which allowed us time to add hand crafted accents for thematic pop. For an added feminine touch, set goodies atop Frills Frosting Doilies.
Cozy Boho Party Fun
Throw a fuzzy blanket and fluffy pillows on the floor then gather girls around a low table to craft a Boho dream catcher. Get the DIY tutorial HERE. Best part of this activity is that it requires no glue! Guests can take their catchers with them and hang them up at home as a pretty reminder of their cozy time spent with friends.
Cozy Boho Party Favor
Send guests home with cozy reminders of the special time shared together. Super soft, warm socks and their very own “Let’s Get Cozy!” personalized mug are perfect gifting options. Transform a Clear Candy Tube filled with Pink Gumballs into a fun arrow treat by attaching glitter paper shapes to the outside. Finally, a Pink Dot Personalized Luggage Tag is a cute and practical way to gift favor bags.
