Most of the Mehndis are organized in the garden or backyard & if you have a tree or two at your mehndi venue, it’s time to include it in your decor! If it’s a day mehndi than decorate the Tree with marigold or anything else you can think about? If it’s a night function than brighten it up with those fairy lights which are totally in trend at almost every other wedding. You can even hang your favourite photographs from these trees using strings.
Hand-painted Cute Little Tea Kettles
Now that you’ve finally discovered your creative side, why let the painter in you stay hidden. Get artistic and grab cute little kettles and paint them the way you like it. Add these beautiful pieces to give your own touch to the venue.
Mehndi is the event where you get to play with a lot of colours. One of the straightforward yet unique Mehndi decor ideas you can DIY is vibrant dupattas hanging from walls ceilings, the seat or place where the bride will sit and everywhere else they’ll look fantastic! Choose bright and vibrant colours, which will add more to the vibrancy of the function.
Rajasthani Kathputli (Puppets)
An extraordinarily traditional and classic yet fun DIY mehndi decoration idea is the Rajasthani Kathputlhi or puppets. Don’t get frightened, looking at their complicated structure. They’re not all that difficult to make. The magic here is in the bandhini cloth material, and the puppets don’t really need to look perfect.
It’s time to seek all your buddies who love to chug in wine and beer, and there you have your mehndi decoration items. All you got to do now is to wash the stink off and fill the bottles up with water. Now place some amazingly gorgeous and fresh flowers in these bottles. You can now hang them by a tree or place them on tables. Either way, bottles are sure to fancy up your venue and grab some eyeballs.
Why not create an arch or villa-like structure wth just umbrellas? The decor sounds quite tricky and tough, but in reality, it’s very easy to DIY. All you need to do is find a way to intact the umbrellas in a particular place and sew flowers like tassels around it. You can always get more creative and hang something else in place of the flower strings like bangles or pearled chains, anything you can work on!
Having a vintage themed mehndi ceremony? Birdcage decor is a unique, eye-catching and stylish decor idea. Throw in a bunch of flowers in your birdcages and voila. That’s all it takes to dress them for the Mehndi. These beauties! Should you wish to fancy the decor up a little, add some crystal strings.
Arts & Crafts
Feel nostalgic and feel your school days by making your own pinwheels or origami cranes and decorate the space with your creativity. More vibrant, better!
Make colourful buntings using cloth or paper and tie them in the ceiling or on the back of the chair. Looks tricky but they are relatively easy to create.
You can make rectangular-shaped buntings with printed fabrics.
You need to pick up your fairy lights and tie them to have a starry ceiling.
Mason jars have been one of the hottest fashion in decor for quite a while, and they are super versatile and are readily available in the local markets (Chandni Chowk, Sarojini Nagar, Sadar Bazaar for wholesale products)
They work best as the centrepieces – tie a jute rope knot on it and fill it up with baby’s breath flowers.
Or stick a layer of burlap and lace and tie a ribbon knot and fill it with your favourite flower (sunflower maybe?). You can also complement it with a wine bottle or a candle.
Colourful Indian Umbrellas
Using colourful Indian umbrellas is the easiest yet the most effortless way to decorate up your mehndi ceremony. Hang in some strings of marigold inside the rim of the umbrella. Or place the umbrellas around your home or venue; either way, they transform the space magically.
While bird cages can be a little expensive, candles are the most affordable of all DIY mehndi decor ideas you can come across. Use the different size variants that are available in the market. Get creative with the placement, patterns and height combinations.
Another cool idea is to draw mehndi designs onto the candles itself.
These candles will create the perfect setting for your mehndi ceremony.
Use Bold & Warm Colours for Mehndi Decor
Since the environment of a mehndi ceremony is very homely and casual; you can use brightly coloured fabric for mehndi décor. It will not only give the event an exotic and festive feel but will also add warmth and a lot of intimacy. One of the coolest ways of transforming the space for your Mehndi is by bringing in fun and bold colours such as fuchsia pink, lime green, yellow, blood orange and red. Using these colour schemes will also add warmth to your venue and will give a welcoming feel to your guests. Lately, we have seen a lot of neon being used as a colour palette for many mehndi functions. Neon is fun and funky!
