1. Hang ribbons from the ceiling/ trees and tie a bangle at the end
Super effective mehendi decor hack - get colored ribbons and hang them from trees/ ceiling etc and have bangles hanging from them . You could even get extra creative and hang a brightly packed lollipop or two as well .
2. Use ribbons to decorate chair backs.
Strips of colored ribbons hung at the back of chairs=major cuteness factor.

4. DIY photobooth with Silk Sarees / Bandhini Dupattas
Want a pretty photobooth backdrop without spending a ton of cash? Ask for your mum's silk sarees (if she agrees and hang a bunch of them spread out in the backdrop- makes for a visually striking picture
5. Create a super gorgeous backdrop with bottles and flowers

6. Wrap balloons with toulle for an easy, breezy vintage theme
Want to go pastel and english vintage without spending a ton of money? Get balloons in pink and wrap them with toulle in white and pink. So easy and so effective. Use existing mirrors and photo frames in the house for a more elaborate look.
7. A rangoli never goes out of style
Its true , but be careful that it's created at a place where people dont walk over, or all your hard work would be ruined and a lot of high heels would go home drenched in color !
