Have a balcony at home? Don’t miss out on showing your decor skills in this intriguing and fun space at home. Start by playing with lights and set up your balcony with a combination of bright and dim lights. Additionally, use diyas, and fire balloons to represent fire. Red and yellow pipe balloons for the fire and brown for the wood. Drape string lights on the balcony parapet which will look stunning from the outside. Lanterns can add a different dynamic and worn-out candle stands will give an authentic feeling of the festival.

Add A Creative Spin To Your Home With These Lohri Party Decoration Ideas

A very important aspect of Lohri is the Lohandi fire. You can make a bonfire in the garden for your guests to cosy up around the fire. To begin with Lohri decorations at home, you can start by changing the upholstery to traditional decorative pillow covers, ceiling-hung fairy lights and a genda phool wall-hung decor. You can also choose to change your home’s wall decor, and add something special and more traditional similar to the art frame, as seen in the image. Pro tip: Stick to two to three colours to create a thematic Lohri decoration at home.
