Diwali is the grandest, the shiniest, the most awaited and the most cheerful festival of the country. It is almost similar to Thanksgiving in the US, except for that people don’t just reunite with their family and relatives; they also reach out to old friends, neighbours and colleagues and celebrate the festival in a happy and pompous fashion.
Themes contribute significantly in setting up the mood for the evening. While the entire ambiance rests upon them, you get to witness and experience something you haven’t been through yet. It brings in lot of new colors, lights and decorations; everything that complements a Diwali feast. Are you thinking of organizing a Diwali party at your home this year for all your loved ones? Are you confused what theme to give to your party? Following are the top 5 Diwali home party ideas!
Best Diwali Party Theme Ideas
They say three things rule in India- religion, politics and Bollywood (yes you read that right)! Bollywood binds people like nothing else and what better theme for your Diwali party than the crazy Bollywood naachgaana (song and dance). Deck up your home like a Bollywood studio, make it look dramatic, put up life size posters of Bollywood legends and get a DJ to play Bollywood mixes. If you have a hi-fi home theater, you can also play a classic Bollywood movie and watch it with everyone post dinner, dance and dessert. A frequent serving of the Chocolate Rocks would be a good idea!
Indo-western theme works great for Diwali parties. You can decorate the home in a traditional Indian way with Diyas, rangolis and’have a western dinner with Indian desserts and sherbats. Also you can ask all your guests to wear indo-western dresses. Ask the DJ to play a mix of Indian and western tracks. Use the best of both worlds to give your party a perfect vibe and feel. Cakes advocate for a perfect blend of the two cultures. You can prepare exquisite Belgium Chocolate Cakes and customize the taste to match the Indian taste buds!.
Light a Diya
‘Light a Diya’ can be a great theme for a Diwali home party. Don’t use any electric lighting and light up the whole place using Diyas only. You can make rangolis in different corners of the house and at the entrance and decorate them with Diyas. Further you can place some unlit Diyas at the entrance and ask each guest to light one up upon entry. Did you know dried fruits anchor Diwali feasts? Ensure regular serving. This theme subtly brings out the beauty and message of the festival of lights. Make sure you buy enough Diyas though!
Turn your home into a Las Vegas casino and have one night of insane fun with your friends and family! Put up tables and chairs and place decks of cards and roulette wheels on them. Tell the guests to form playing groups around the tables and play to their heart’s delight.
You can use fake money bills or colorful chips to make the experience seem even more real. Don’t forget to include Dark Swish Chocolate Boxes to keep the essence of the crazy theme alive!
You know what we Indians love to do when we are happy? Dance! So why not turn your home into a flashy disco for your Diwali home party! Put up some disco balls here and there, set up a dancing stage, get the best DJ in town and wear the most glittery outfits which depict the 70’s and the 80’s times when the disco tradition had just entered India. Get the foot tapping event going with indefinite rounds of Chocolate Bars.
