Depending on the theme, whether it is a gathering of friends or a music festival, it is necessary to take into account the guests, prepare in advance the rules of the event, the music and what cannot be missing; the colored powders.
Space, clothes and additional elements to make the party even more colorful are essential in every Holi party and in the following sections we will give you more details.
Guests and Space for a Holi Party
It is very important to know how many guests will be attending your Holi party so that you don’t miss anything. As a general rule, you should give at least one bag of colored powder to each guest, however, they can be of one color each and some can be of mixed colors. Food is a must in such a celebration, so pay attention to the appetizers and drinks.
Space is the most fundamental thing to conduct a successful Holi party. It should be an outdoor or very large place, such as a park or a beach, where the guests will be able to release the powder into the air and the air will take care of the wonderful visual effects. Also, in most of these parties, the guests will be running to keep the fun going, so space will be needed to make the most of it.
It is important that when making the invitation, you determine the dress code. We recommend that it be a little worn and, preferably, white so that all the colors stand out; likewise, don’t forget to bring clean clothes, sunglasses to protect your eyes, towels to wipe your face and protection for cameras or cell phones.
Music and Powder for a Holi party
Music is essential in any event and this one is no exception. It is best to hire a professional who also has lights or a smoke machine, as this will give a great touch when the whole color party has started. You can agree with the DJ to start a countdown so that the “war” of colored powders begins; this organization will allow you to better control the guests and, of course, generate greater expectation among them.
Regarding the protagonists of the event, the colored powders or Holi powders, it is important to take some precautions to avoid any unforeseen event that could spoil the party. These powders are available in places where party items are sold and it is necessary to make sure that they are not toxic or flammable; remember that they will be in contact with our skin and we must avoid any reaction or asphyxiation. It is also necessary to make sure that they are not flammable to avoid accidents.
