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. 

Easy Centrepieces

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. 

Printed Backdrops

Treasured Occasions

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!

Interesting Hangings

Make hangings as interesting as possible - using mehendi cones and bangles - they cost you literally NOTHING!

Gota Additions

No Mehendi is complete without gota additions - so stitch up a few cushions and table-cloths with it and set them up tables! 

Cool Rangoli

A good and budget option is to have a nice modern rangoli - it's even better if it's not ornate but minimalistic!

Ribbons are a great way to stay colourful and yet modern - try them as backdrops. 

Rattan Ideas

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. 

Mirror Magic
