Top Ideas For Haldi Decoration At Home
As Indians, we like our weddings to be grand. There is a reason the concept of big fat Indian weddings exists. The bigger an Indian wedding, the better it is we say! But sometimes, there are a few restraints in holding every event on such a grand scale. People often tend to keep the big celebration for important events like weddings and receptions. Other smaller events are often held at their homes with close people present. The Haldi ceremony is one such event. So having house-appropriate decor is a must. With this in mind, let us see the best ideas for Haldi decoration at home.
Flowers are an easy peasy way of dressing up your home for any event. They add life and colour to your decor at a fraction of the effort and cost. Stigs of different flowers are extremely easy to find or source. If you cannot find anything, you can also ask your local florist to get some made for you. All you need to do is give a rough measurement of the length of the strings. Once you have the floral strings, your job is even easier. You simply need to hang them in a pattern that you like or one which suits the room. Straight lines are the easiest and classiest pattern but you can make things as complicated as you want. Place a seat under the floral strings with some flower vases around it for the finishing touches, and you are good to go!

You can choose a lovely Haldi décor at home with a Mughal wooden screen backdrop if a modest, private backyard Haldi ceremony is what you had in mind. We adore the fusion of modern textiles with Indian motifs for the couple’s homemade Haldi decoration. A configuration of plants, wood and fabric looks distinctive and elegant. To add another dimension to the decor, use contrast printed throw pillows against the hardwood background. Additionally, you can also simply keep wood as a theme. Maintain the dark tones and put a lot of flowers and plants around it. The central focal point can be a wooden seat for the bride or groom.
