How to have a successful Diwali bash?

Diwali is just a week away. While you are still thinking of who's who to invite for the bash, there are certain things you need to keep in mind while planning a grand Diwali and see to it that you leave a lasting impression on the guests. It is the food, the outfit, the cracker, the home decor and the love with which you welcome your guests - leaves a lasting impression on them :)

Let's start with what comes first; the Home Decor

Once you are done with house cleaning, go and shop for some new bed sheets, curtains and cushion covers. Pick up some bright colors for Diwal. Bright colors and the Diwali lights will gel together like peanut and butter. Get candles, lit them minutes before the guests are supposed to come in.

Keep scented diyas or candles floating in water.

Coming on to the delicious part; the Food.

Festivals and food, deadly combination. Food is the main ingredient of any festive bash. One that remains for long in the memory is often associated with what food you had there. Prepare different food items and keep the balance on the dining table. Make the table look colorful and tasty. Invest is some new cutlery. Buy a dinnerware if you want, which can be used in future festivities as well.

Don't forget to put flower garland on the main door and decorate your balcony/terrace as the guest is sure to head there. You can even arrange for a baithak (sitting arrangement) out in the balcony among the Diwali lights. #ChangeTheAir and get outside home with all :)

Coming on to the outfit, the dress you wear in front of the guests should not only be comfortable for you but also make your guests comfortable. Don't wear too jazzy or too heavy jewelry or clothing to attract. Be simple, wear cotton clothes in-case you are going to burst crackers and be safe this Diwali :)
