Throwing your first ever Diwali party can be nerve-wrecking. There are so many things to take care of and you aren’t too sure of where to begin or even how to begin. You could always scratch the idea of throwing a party and run home to mum and dad and enjoy a typical Diwali with them. Or you could make your home Diwali-ready and surprise your parents by inviting them to your place for a change. Sounds better, doesn’t it?
We are here to lend you a helping hand in jumpstarting the process to getting your home ready for your first Diwali party.
Step one: Clean
As Maria from Sound of Music sings, let’s start at the very beginning, it’s a very good place to start. And the first step is a thorough cleaning of your space. Turn a deaf ear to that hoarder in your head asking you to keep that handwritten letter from your best friend in primary school. You don’t need it. And if you have rented from Furlenco, you can have your furniture deep cleaned so your furniture too is Diwali-ready.
Step two: Decorate
Now that your house is all tidy and neat, it’s time to bring out those decorations. Have some fun while lighting up your home. Light up your corners with lamps, light candles, and tea lights and bring your windows alive with some fairy lights. Remember, on Diwali, there’s no such thing as too many lights! Don’t forget to add some color to your home by opting for colorful cushion covers, curtains, carpets, and anything for that adds that dash of color. You could also check out some DIY ways to do up your house if you want to save up some money.
One of the best things about Diwali is the shopping you get to do. New clothes, new shoes, new decor for your house and if you rent from Furlenco, you can use this opportunity to swap your existing furniture for something new and different. Give yourself and your home a makeover! While you’re at it, you could also buy a few gifts for your family and close friends.
Four: Food and drinks
It’s a party and the best thing about parties is the food. Everyone loves yummy munchies. You can surprise your guests by whipping up some delightful starters and if you have the time, why not learn how to mix some fancy cocktails to get the party going? Don’t forget to stock up on sweets, because what’s Diwali without motichur laddoos?
Five: Quality time
Diwali is all about spending quality time with your loved ones, whether it’s around a dining table sharing a meal or enjoying a game of cards, or simply watching a film together. So at your first Diwali party, don’t forget to spend loads of time with your friends and family and have loads of fun.
This time, celebrate your first Diwali party in your home with your loved ones and have a safe, colorful and happy Diwali!
