Decoding the D-day Decor

Interior Designer Punam Kalra says that sangeet is an important pre- wedding occasion, the most personal & enjoyable. It is a lot of fun, laughter, singing & dancing by family & friends. The decor has to reflect the MOOD of the occasion- has to be warm, inviting & very lively.

Bright colours like orange & greens in decor, tapestry & flowers with gold introduced have an instant impact. Bring in tonal colour hues to impart elegance to the look.

Fragrant candles & peppy music of course are a major part of the event. Instead of going over the top in looks & expenses it is far better to be more creative, stylish & fresh & create A DIFFERENCE.

Chandeliers could be created out of fragrant flowers, marshals could be lit up along the walkway, and backdrops could be created with silk panels in tonal variations of the same colour.

Here are some simple, yet interesting mehendi decor ideas which will brighten up the ceremony!Here are a few innovative decoration ideas for you mehendi-haldi party, which will set just the right mood for the ceremonies and make it a memorable one!

Style and Theme

Think about the style and the theme that you want to set for the mehendi party. Since it is a private affair, wherein only the close female relatives (apart from the family members) are called upon, keep the theme simple.

Decorating the place with fresh flowers and scented tea-lights is a nice idea. It will set a lovely ambience for the ceremony. Wind chimes, hung at the dividers of the rooms, would add to the overall appeal.

Hang a string of bells at the entranceway of the place. You may also welcome your guests by hanging a small banner at the entranceway.


Ensure that you provide the home with enough lighting. It is wise not to resort to dim lighting, because it is mehendi ceremony, wherein intricate designs of henna are carefully applied on the bride’s hands and feet. Hang a crystal chandelier at the place, where the mehendi is applied.
