India is an amazing country where interesting customs and traditions are intertwined with the centuries-old culture of religion and art. That is why the Indian party is a great opportunity to plunge into the world of amazing cuisine and traditions.
In order to fully plunge into the atmosphere of this amazing country, it is advisable to at least learn a little about culture, life and traditions.
Before we talk about how to organize a party in the Indian style, let’s take a closer look at India. So, some interesting facts:
- In India, there is a caste system that divides the entire population into unique social and cultural strata. That is why, most often, the husband and wife in the family are either from the same caste, or the husband is higher than the wife in terms of his social status.
- In India, there is a ritual of throwing children from the roof. A child is thrown off onto a tarpaulin stretched down so that he can receive health and courage! According to eyewitnesses, the tradition is completely safe
As you can see, the script of the Indian party is not just a costume ball, it is a whole science about how to make a beautiful thematic celebration with the observance of interesting traditions, rituals and games!
Indian party should be made in rich colors and shades. That is why gold and silver fabrics, various bright colors – pink, yellow, purple and violet, as well as silk pillows, canopies and tents will be very appropriate.
An interesting solution would be to “plunge” guests into the atmosphere of the real jungle by printing out images of palm trees and the shores of the Indian Ocean, wild animals and the incredible beauty of birds. As a musical accompaniment, you can put the sounds of wildlife.
Do not forget about the paintings that describe India (for example, the Taj Mahal, images of elephants).
Of course, the most beautiful at the Indian party will be girls, because the traditional clothing of this country – choli – is the height of elegance, beauty and femininity. First you need to put on a short top and a long skirt, and on top of it you should put on a fabric that will serve as the rest of the costume. If the skirt and top can be plain and simple, then the upper fabric should be bright, decorated with embroidery and sparkles!
For men – Shervani, which looks like a long jacket to the knee or mid calf. They wear chervans with churidars – loose in the hip area and trousers tapering to the bottom.
Thinking through the menu for guests, do not forget that a cow in India is a sacred animal and is at such an evening, at least, strange! That is why we recommend vegetarian cuisine – beans, rice, vegetables with lots of spices.
Scenario Indian party should involve a large number of different entertainment! After all, people will want not only to try the traditional food of this region, but also to dance and even play!
To begin with, you can play a small quiz where guests will be asked questions about the traditions of this country, geography and population. Thus, we will not only conduct an intellectual battle, but also get to know India more closely.
If the festival takes place outdoors, then you can arrange Holi – a festival of colors, which is traditionally held in India. Color dry paint, safe for health – will be a great “friend” in order to have fun and dance!
You can also play the game “Yoga”, where everyone takes a funny (but safe) pose.
Do not forget about the music! You can give preference to traditional Indian music or modern.
