Bollywood themed party decor

This post is 'On-Demand'.My lovely reader S wrote to me that she wants some ideas for a Bollywood themed party..Wow!! what a terrific theme !! This is my 5th on-demand post and I am loving it!!(The earlier are here ,here,here and here) I feel it is somewhat like a commissioned work ..I have to think something entirely different...which was not on my list or mind at all!! 

Ok let's start.. Bollywood or Indian Cinema is popular for the vibrancy, colors, songs & dance sequences etc.. But I think the main attraction is Bollywood films portray a dream like world ..where everything turns out right , good wins over evil, hero gets the heroine and love wins all!!! Total relaxing 2-3 hours which takes you a different colorful and sometimes a total no-brainer or stress atmosphere!! 

So I think thats what the basic underlying theme should be dreamy, vibrant, relaxing and colorful!! Let's start with the party invitations...

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Courtesy: Itsdatedesign


Party invitation should like a trailer or tease of the party.. Just look at the beautiful Bollywood party invitation .. They are so glamorous, stylish and vibrant.. No words needed .. You know how ravishing the party will be when you see these pretty invitations..


                                                                     Courtesy: AkreativeMommy
You can instanly decorate and add a unique Indian touch to a simple envelope/ invitation by using these elephant shaped envelope seals. These are from AKreativeMommy on etsy.

Another pretty, cool and cute invitation card collection with lovely Indian imagery like a blue elephant or the Taj Mahal...These are from Bird's craft on etsy!!

                                                                                                                                             Courtesy. Bird's craft

Now that you have finalized and sent your invitations..You should start thinking about the decorations to turn your venue or home into a Indian themed party place which looks just out a Bollywood movie ..

                                                                                                                                                                 Courtesy: hennaarts

Low seating arrangement goes well with any Indian theme... For Bollywood party if you plan to watch a movie then this seating could be perfect!! Just throw some large cushion in vibrant bright colors.. a silky tablecloth ...float some candles..arrange some flowers !!! I love the color scheme in the above picture .. looks vibrant and at the same time very subtle !! Also notice the curtains hanging on the walls.. makes it look as if you are sitting a tent!!!!!

                                                                                                                                                               Courtesy: Thoughtfully simple

Choosing the accessories and matching them to the theme is equally important..This beautiful Bollywood themed party was organized by Smita of The party wall. Do visit her blog.. The party wall is an unique and a very creative blog with beautiful ideas and inspirational party decor.

                                                                                                                                                  Courtesy: Thoughtfully simple
Did you see the lovely banner..Bird's craft designed the invitations, party favor boxes and other accessories!! She also has a blog and website as well!! I just love the fantastic color coordination.. the flowers, candies, candle stands, table cloth ..everything is color coordinated..Awesome!!


                                                                        Courtesy: AkreativeMommy
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

Some more accessories... How about gift tags made of ornamental decorated Indian elephants in vibrant colors and adorned with gold and silver design ..You can use them as place cards, gift tags or favor bag topper . These are from AKreativeMommy on etsy.


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Courtesy: Prudent Baby

Party favors for kids .. I found this lovely blog- Prudent baby by Jamie and Jacinda ..The theme of her party was Indian elephant .. They had included handmade elephant crayons..Aren't they lovely!! She also has step by step instructions for these here!!!




                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Courtesy: Hostess Blog

 Adult party favors included pretty Indian styled bangles and other bling-bling stuff.. The Elephant crayons and Elephant Fabric Garland are super cool and spectacular ..To view the entire party decorations and other DIY decorations for this Indian elephant party click here!!!!

Creating theme party decorations are a way to make your guest of honor feel like this is their day to shine. The more creative you are in your oscar party decorations and the more the decorations are personalized to match your party theme, the more memorable your party will be not only to your guests but also for the guest of honor.

Hi, thanks so much for including Bird's Party printables here!

BTW, images 2, 4 and 5 are all Bird's Party, and not The Party Wall's.

These ideas of decoration are really amazing. Many different types of flowers that are commonly used by florists. If you are planning on making wedding flowers yourself, it is extremely helpful to know how well different varieties hold up, when they are season.
