Lohri celebrations are probably one of the most awaited festivals for Sikhs and Punjabis. But who doesn’t like an evening with family besides the warmth of the bonfire? Even if you aren’t Sikh or Punjabi, the festival of Lohri is a great way to enjoy the winter season in the warmth of the bonfire with your loved ones.
When Is Lohri In 2024?| Lohri Kab Hai?
This year, Lohri will be celebrated on Sunday 14th January, 2024.
The festivities of Lohri are an embodiment of gratitude to nature as represented by the Sun god. They are also symbolic of a spirit of brotherhood, unity, and gratitude, with family reunions generating happiness, goodwill, and cheer. Of course, Lohri celebrations, get even bigger if you’re celebrating the arrival of a little one in your family or if it’s your first Lohri celebration post your wedding. To add to your celebrations we’ve figured out some Lohri decoration ideas that will make your festivities even more grand and gorgeous.
Lohri Decor with Colourful Kites and Lanterns
Bright colors, festive music, and delicious food are the essentials of every Lohri celebration. Adding colorful and vibrant kites will make your venue look festive and celebratory. Kites will be quirky and different additions to your classic Lohri celebrations. The traditional look of kites set up delicately along with colorful lanterns is the perfect way to brighten up your Lohri celebrations. You can try CherishX’s Garden Lohri Decoration to have decor full of lanterns and kites.
Our pro tip would be to play some Bollywood music like the Lohri song from Veer Zara as your guests enter the venue to get everyone in the celebratory, fun, and festive mood! However, you can also play some desi Lohri boliyan such as Sundar mundariye, Gidha Lohri Da, and more.
Cloth Drapes and Dupattas:
Dig out your mom’s gorgeous old dupattas and use them to set up your colorful Lohri venue. You could also use bright drapes. Traditional dupattas and fabrics draped exquisitely around doors and walls add a glamorous yet festive vibe to the venue. You could also use them on the doors or set them up on the walls. The color palette which goes best with Lohri decor would be shades of yellow, pink, and red. You could also add green dupattas to add a different element to the decor.
Decorate the Holy Bonfire:
Decorating the bonfire will definitely be a very unique twist to your decor. The Holy fire is the centerpiece of your celebration, so why not make it grand? You could use stones to create a beautiful design around the fire. Along with that, you could use artificial flowers and rangoli colors to add to the design. However, make sure you don’t place anything that is flammable like fabric and cloth around the bonfire to avoid any hazards.
Traditionally Embroidered Umbrellas:
Rajasthani umbrellas are exquisitely embroidered umbrellas that can be used to create your perfect traditional Lohri decoration. They are bright, and colorful and the mirror work definitely makes them look extra gorgeous and festive. Just place these umbrellas on the floor or carefully place them on the ceiling and you’re all set with your festive Lohri decor. Add some fairy lights to the decor as they make the embroidery on the umbrella stand out at night. Tap here to check out this Rajasthani Umbrella Decor by CherishX
