5 Creative Ways To Celebrate Holi

Holi is around the corner and here are some creative ideas to celebrate Holi. The festival is not only about colors but also about getting together and forgetting all the hate around you and love each other.

Play peppy music

No fun Holi party can be complete without Rang Barse playing in the background! Compile some all-time favourite Holi songs from classics, like Holi Ke Din (Sholay) to Holi Khele Raghuveera (Baghban), Ang Se Ang Lagana (Darr) to the latest ones like Do Me A Favour Let’s Play Holi (Waqt- The Race Against Time) and Balam Pichkari (Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani). Play them at high volume and have a blast.
Our tip: Add a karaoke machine to your music system. Why just listen to Holi songs, when you can sing them as well? After all, we all know their lyrics far too well, don’t we?

Add exciting street food to the menu

After a fun Holi party at home for hours, one works up a huge appetite. Keep the theme Indian, because let us face it; people would not be keen on navigating through a bowl of pasta after celebrating a quintessentially Indian festival! Biryani, chole bhature, pav bhaji, chaat and paneer tikka would definitely make people drool! Keep serving finger food throughout the party. Hire a caterer and ask him to serve food that can be easily eaten with a toothpick.
Our tip: Cover the food with a cloche to protect it from Holi colours and water. Add some sugar-free gujiyas, baked samosas and other healthier options on the menu, for the health freaks.

Conserve water

The most important thing on your list is the colours and water. Now, playing with pukkaa colours can be really fun, but the amount of damage they cause is not worth it. Opt for organic colours and gulal, which are easily available in the market. Ask your guests to bring their own pichkaris but keep a few inexpensive ones handy, nonetheless. Set a limit on the buckets of water you are going to use; water conservation is important too. Keep a few bowls of fresh water handy in case some colour gets into your guests’ eyes.
Our tip:Many times, some people (especially the elderly) do not get to enjoy Holi because they don’t really like getting wet, or have an allergy to colours. So, keep rose and other colourful flower petals handy for them. Instead of smearing gulal on their faces, you can throw a handful of petals on them. This way, they will enjoy the festival in a natural, healthy way.

Dress code – white

Just the way Bollywood celebs slays in all the Holi parties, whether in movies or real life, newly-weds can also put the dress code as white for their Holi party. Since all the colours will get showcased the best on white outfits, why not ask your guests to come up with cotton non-expensive white ensembles for the Holi party at home.
Our tip: You can keep different crops like scarfs for the ladies and caps for the men. Try to put in some Holi contest like the one who will be most drenched in colours and water by the end of the Holi party will be given a special prize.
