It’s that time when you can catch up with family and friends over home-cooked meals and easy-going conversations. While riding on the vehicle of traditions, festivals and nostalgia, our hectic work life takes a back seat. If you are planning your own Diwali party at home, use this list of ideas to help you choose the perfect decor and theme.
Casino themed party
This Party is an age-old ritual for Indians celebrating Diwali. The festival is associated with cards, and whether your guests are a beginner or experienced players, the cards will give the feel to everyone. Make card props to decorate the party area. Make a life-sized photo booth with the Queen of Aces and the King of Hearts, and let Instagram do the rest.
Mughal Style Party
Diwali is a royal festival, so why can’t you show it in your party decor? Go for an ‘a’shahi’ theme; it has to be a Mughal-style garden party. Turn on some Soulful Hindustani music, turn on the fairy lights on the trees, add some diyas and genda phool, gulaab and kamal for decoration, and you’re ready to throw the most elegant party of the year. A small but well-kept garden with cabana-style seating can be chosen for an intimate affair.
Hosting a Colour Coded Diwali party is like stepping into a dream world for aesthetes. Everything from the decor to the food to the outfits can be colour coded to create an electrifying atmosphere. Instead of the traditional Red or Gold colour scheme, choose Pastel or Ombre, where guests can have fun dressing up and deciding what to wear. To create a soft and warm ambience, choose pastel-coloured flowers such as orchids, Echinacea, dahlias, or windflowers.
Try this theme from decor to activities; make it DIY. You can bring earthen pots, Diya and let your guests show their creativity by painting them. It will be a fun event where the whole family can be involved. The decor also you can make, trust us it, will remind you of childhood birthday parties. If you’re a master chef, make it a ‘Junior Chef laddoo making’ afternoon. Diwali vacation needs activity. Allow that to be channelled into creative jobs.
Choose one of these themes to make your Diwali celebration the talk of the town!
