If you can’t get to India (flights to Mumbai don’t come cheap, after all), then let our buyers bring India to you with gorgeous homeware. With our top five tips for a Bollywood-themed party, your home will be a New Delhi paradise in no time at all…
1.Let there be light
From lanterns and candles to flickering fairy lights and incense sticks, we’ve got everything you need to create the ultimate mood lighting.
2.Go bright or go home
Think hot pink, zingy yellow, electric blue and ruby red. Whether it’s seat cushions, throws or eye-catching artwork, a pop of colour is sure to get the party started.
3.It’s all in the detail
Find fancy embellishment to pay homage to Indian craft. Look out for coloured stones, intricate beading or mini mirrored glass on lanterns, cushions (and little tables, too!).
4.Food, glorious food
Treat your guests to a Thali style supper with lots of little vibrant dishes. Fill our colourful bowls with curry, dal and paneer – along with basmati rice and chapati. Serve with cool mango lassi to take the edge off a warm evening.
5.Dance the night away…
And the final touch – a spot of traditional Indian music! Have a search on Spotify, link up your speakers and you’re all set.
