The Mehendi ceremony is one of the pre-wedding functions held in most Indian households as a part of the wedding festivities. Initially this ceremony was performed at home with close women relatives of the bride and men were not allowed to be a part of the celebration. This trend has changed over the years.
The Mehendi décor and themes are getting bigger and better with time. A popular color scheme for this event is fuschia, orange and lime green colour. The colours are bright and just apt for a nice outdoor party. Small tents using hot pink and lime green sheers can be set up with diwan seating. Orange marigold flowers can be used to add an orange hint to the décor. You could hang marigold streamers along the tent rods or bands around poles. Another way to use flowers could be hanging balls of marigold flowers. Also colourful embroidered cushions can be used to spice up the look and make the seating more comfortable. Urli bowls with rose petals and floating candles will make good center pieces.
Other elements like floral rangoli using rose and marigold petals along with tea light candles, ceramic pots, pinwheel fans, Rajasthani dolls in shades of hot pink and orange can be added to the décor. You could also add crystals and wind chimes to an outdoor venue. Bandhani or lehariya fabrics can be used as overlays and tiebacks instead of just bold coloured fabrics. In case it is an evening function, you can add Indian cloth lanterns or tinted glass lamps for lighting up the place along with diyas.
