Holi Celebration Ideas To Enjoy At Home

Holi-A festival of colours is a fun festival in India. It is popular around the world. It is a symbol of victory over evil, welcoming the spring season and sharing a love bond with friends and family. In this holi, are you planning to celebrate Holi at home?  It can be just as fun and colourful as attending Holi parties and events. Today, we bring you a Holi celebration idea to enjoy at home-

1. Organic Colours Play:

Use natural and eco-friendly colours made from flowers, turmeric, beetroot, or other organic materials to play Holi. Choosing organic colour not only adds vibrancy to your celebration but also protects your skin. Chemical-based colours are full of harmful colours which cause skin irritation and rashes after a Holi party. These colours are safe for the skin and the environment.

2. Themed Dress-Up Party:

Add a theme to your party that can be a good twist to your regular celebration. Choose a theme for your Holi celebration and encourage everyone to dress up accordingly. You can try a Bollywood theme, retro disco, traditional wear or colour theme party with a particular colour. Among all, traditional Indian wear, neon colours, or anything else that adds to the festive vibe and is more trendy.

3. Music and Dance:

No celebration is complete without dance and music. Add a rule of must dance at your party for all family and friends. First, create a playlist of your favourite Holi songs and dance to the beats with your family and friends. Mask sure to choose popular Holi songs like Balam Pichkari, Rang Barse, etc for the Holi vibe. You can also play traditional dhol music which will attract more guests to the dance floor.

4. Water Balloon Fight:

You can beat the heat by organising a water balloon fight in your backyard or terrace. It is not for indoor parties. You needed an open space. Fill balloons with coloured water and let the splashing begin on each other. Be competitive and battle with your family and friends. The only aim of playing water balloon fights is to get all wet. In addition, you can play your Holi playlist for more fun. Remember, do not waste water extremely. Conserve water while playing Holi with water.

5. DIY Color Crafts:

Let’s be creative this Holi season. You can show their creativity or ask your guest to show their creativity for a personalised touch to the celebration. You guys can prepare colourful rangoli by powered colour or gulal, decorate your house with paper flowers, banners, etc. Make festive garlands using colourful paper, fabric scraps, or flower petals. Later, string them together outside the house. You can buy a DIY kit which is available online from various theme-based home parties. We can assure you that it will be interesting for you and your family and friends this festive season.

6. Holi Bonfire:

Nothing is better than extending the Holi celebration to the night. You can set a Holi bonfire to enjoy the night as well. Make it relaxing after dancing at the day party. Light a bonfire in your backyard or terrace in the evening and gather around for some warmth and camaraderie. You can bring traditional snacks, sweets, beverages, roast marshmallows or your favourite food with your loved ones. You can sing songs, dance or share memories around the fire for added fun. You can also add colourful powder to the flames to create colourful Holi vibes with colourful hues. It will enhance the festive atmosphere. You can end your party by serving the Holi’s traditional thandai to every guest.

7. Virtual Holi Party:

If you can’t celebrate Holi with your family or friends in person due to global challenges and social distancing norms, we suggest using the power of technology to have a festive vibe with a Virtual Holi party with your family and friends. You can organise online gatherings, and virtual dance parties, play games, dance together, and exchange good wishes by sharing your screen. It is the best way to keep the festive spirit alive by keeping everyone safe. It is a popular form of party during the lockdown in India.

8. Holi Charity Drive:

Organising a Holi charity drive is a meaningful and impactful way to celebrate the festival of colours. You can collaborate with charities, NGOs, or community organisations that support causes such as education, healthcare, or food security. Host a party and encourage your family, friends and neighbours to participate in it by donating essential items such as clothing, school supplies, non-perishable food items, or monetary contributions. If they don’t want to take part in donations, ask them to help in distributing food packets, donating clothes, or organising educational workshops. It can be the best-ever Holi celebration for you and your guests. Bring a positive change in society by hosting such parties.

9. Holi Snacks:

To make your Holi festival memorable, prepare a variety of delicious snacks that are both traditional and innovative. Start the most common Holi snack- Gujiyas, a sweet dumpling filled with khoya and dry fruits and thandai,  a refreshing milk-based drink with various spices. Both snacks are ideal for the vibrant atmosphere of Holi. You can give a modern twist by adding edible food colour to it. You can also fusion with colourful popcorn, rainbow fruit skewers, or Holi-themed cupcakes decorated with edible colours.

10. Cultural Performance:

Infusing the festivities with music, dance, and traditional performances that reflect the spirit of the festival. Celebrate the rich Indian heritage with folk music, puppet shows and street play at your Holi party. Many people celebrate Holi with the soulful rendition of traditional Holi songs and bhajans. Encourage everyone to join in singing and dancing and create a positive environment. Incorporating colourful dance performances such as the energetic Garba, lively Bhangra, or graceful Kathak, it showcases the rich diversity of Indian culture and heritage.
