Diwali is for India what Christmas is for the western countries!
The exhilarating atmosphere of Diwali is ideal for throwing a fun kitty party. Women love kitty parties and the concept of ‘just women’ having fun together. It is a women’s only party and therefore the freedom they have in a kitty party is hardly ever possible in parties with men around. It goes without saying that everything about a kitty party has to have a special feminine touch to it!
Preparations For The Diwali Kitty Party
The preparations for the Diwali kitty party should start long before the party. If you want to design your party with a traditional theme based on Diwali, then it is important that you creatively merge the two concepts together. The following are a few tips that will help you do so.
For Event Planning Trends
- Clean your house inside out. Remove clutter and bring in good vibes and create positive energy inside your house.
- Use floating candles and colorful diyas to adorn the place designated for the party. You may hand-paint diyas yourself using colors like yellow, red, green, golden and silver. To decorate them further, stick some sparkles/motifs on them.
- A garden kitty party can be a great idea if you have a well-maintained garden in the house. Put beautiful earthen diyas in rows inside the boundaries, walls, and garden-paths.
- You may also make a beautiful rangoli on the doorsteps. Tying beautiful kandils and colorful torans of twinkling light-bulbs are sure to make the entrance look festive and inviting.
Dressing Up For Diwali Kitty Party Celebrations
Dressing up for the occasion is important and most women are quite good at it. Diwali kitty party is the time when you can choose rich color-schemes while selecting your attire. Try a blend of modernity and traditional Indian culture to pick up just the right dress. The following are some tips to look your best for the party.
- Make sure that your dress, accessories, and make-up are elegant and groovy.

Food Items For Diwali Parties
