Never let your inner child die - and that means bursting out of your cocoon and making hoopla of Diwali ................ because age really is just a number!
Sadly, turning into a slave of crazy schedules has forced us to stop exploring our fun side and now we stick to the most basic rituals of commemorating the return of Lord Ram i.e. a lazy relaxed holiday limited to new clothes, firecrackers, desserts and wishing our folks through phone calls. At the end of the day, not going all out with the celebratory factor is like breaking an unspoken rule.
What do you do to break this monotony? Throw a Diwali party which will make every guest get involved,as well as think, in one way or the other. This Diwali, splurge a few extra bucks and create a new experience for your friends and family. Here are some crazy theme party ideas that you could use for pinching and bursting that comfortable bubble.
1. Bollywood bash: B-town theme party is always a winner. You could send out handmade invites, dress up as your favourite celebrity, name food items after Bollywood hits, light up the venue with candles and diyas and brighten up the party with games like couples dance competition.
2. Mughal Era: You could don traditional Mughal attire with turbans and cardboard cut-out swords for men and heavy danglers, necklaces and anklets for women as accessories, representing the mighty royals from back in the day. Include Mughlai foods and kebabs as specials, design the entrance into a Mughal monument and embrace their Mughliya Tehzeeb.
3. Arabian Nights: The ultimate pop culture, you could start by sending out scroll invites, dress up as characters from Aladdin, include hookah in the menu, light up the entrance in the shape of ‘Agrabah’ and make cabanas for sitting booths. Spice up your party with a ‘shots from the chirag’ theme when serving alcohol and this could easily become the most talked about Diwali bash for weeks.
4. Mythological theme: You could go for traditional clothing that represents legends and accessorize it with jewellery exhibiting your culture. Mix it up by enacting your favourite mythological legend.
