First Published Jan 13, 2021, 12:41 PM IST
Lohri will be celebrated today, January 13, a day before Makar Sankranti. Here are a few unique ideas to decorate your surrounding on this auspicious day of Lohri.
Lohri is all about warmth, happiness, and food. It is celebrated to pray to the Sun God and Fire God in Punjab and its neighbouring regions. It marks the end of the winter solstice and the beginning of the happy, sunny days. It's a harvesting festival, and Punjab depends on wheat. Lohri is a very special occasion for the newlyweds and the newborns. Here's how you can decorate and spice up little things in your house.
Let there be light with Candles
As the Covid-situation has not been appropriately recovered, we are not supposed to come in contact with many people. But, as this festival is all about light and fire, you can put candles in beautiful candle holders to dress up your house. You can also opt for stunning LED T-light sets that would surely impress your guests.
Furniture that comforts and enhances beauty
Furniture made of hay is one of the most important items in Punjab. So you can furnish your house with some hay beds or benches here and there and decorate it with colourful tassels to add some colour to your rooms.
No Sweets, No Lohri
Sweets are necessities, without sweets Lohri is incomplete. Make sweets ranging from Phirni, Gulab Jamun, Rabdi Jalebi, Malpua Rabdi, Kheer, laddoos and the list can go on. Your guests will be flattered.
Serving with style
Serve your delicacies with fashion. Take out those most expensive dishes and plate your food items with some flower petals decorating the place. You can also put exotic flower vases to enhance the beauty of the dining table.
Let the aromatic beauty blends in with the Lohri fire and bring happiness to everyone. You can either get Aroma diffusers or Himalayan lamps, both of them will add a traditional and vibrant style to the festivities.
