Mehendi At Home? Here Are Some Cool Decor Ideas To Do Up Your House On A Budget!
BY Latha Sunadh | 23 Feb, 2018
Life has become simpler innit? Most of us these days want simpler, more minimalistic ceremonies and hence, Mehendis these days are about a bit of DIY, a little bit of mix and match and a whole lotta online-shopping-and-creating-decor. So here are a few simple, easy and effortless ideas that will make your home perfect to host a Mehendi - with tweaks and ideas to create a DIY set-up.
Pick easy ideas as centerpieces: Old cups and saucers with florals and ask your cousins to make some fun finger paper work and print out your initials. These are new-age ideas and super cool too.
Kites = Easy and Cheap Backdrop Option
Kites are perfect for a Mehendi and they are cheap as hell - so pick a colour theme and use them well.
Or easier than that is getting your fun cousin to print out a neat vignette and use it in a cozy space in the house for a special photo op!
Make hangings as interesting as possible - using mehendi cones and bangles - they cost you literally NOTHING!
No Mehendi is complete without gota additions - so stitch up a few cushions and table-cloths with it and set them up tables!
A good and budget option is to have a nice modern rangoli - it's even better if it's not ornate but minimalistic!
Easy Peasy Strings
Ribbons are a great way to stay colourful and yet modern - try them as backdrops.
Rattan is coming back as a trend so go on Amazon and find some baskets and cane things and use them well.
Origami & Paper
Paper is coming back to weddings in an altogether new way - so use paper lanterns and origami cranes for some added glam.
Get a mirror, paint it in your theme colour and get a calligrapher to write up something amazing!
