New Delhi: The festival of colours is here and the vibrant hues of Holi can be seen all around. This year Holi is being celebrated on March 21 and the nation is gripped in the festive fervour. On this day, if you are planning to host a grand Holi bash at home, we tell you how to get things in order. 

Check the must have 5 items you need while organising a Holi party at home:

Music

Any party is incomplete without chartbuster Hindi songs. So, dancing on your favourite 'Rang Barse' or 'Holi Khele' will keep you in full Holi mood. Make a list of special Holi numbers and you are good to go!

Party accessories

Get hold of some cool and catchy accessories like oversize eye shades, moustaches and cool message boards to pose with. Your Holi clicks will rock your social networking timeline, for sure. Don't waste time thinking, get going!

Colours

After all, it's the festival of colours. Keep a stock of different colours while throwing a Holi bash. Get your hands on Gulaal (red colour) and various other organic ones too, as they smell nice and are also soft on your skin. Get set and go play Holi!

Sweets

Holi is also about food and especially mithai. So, all you party hosts out there, get lots and lots of sweets stacked up already. If you know how to make gujias, and rasgullas then it's super cool—otherwise head to the best and nearest mithaiwallah for pre-bookings.

Pichkari

The pichkaris are not just for kids. It adds a little old world charm to the festival. Who would not want to sing 'Balam pichkari' without a real one in hand? You can either buy a new one or rent it out. Let the festival spirit grip you hard!

Also, be careful while playing as animals are not really as fond of the festival as you might be. So, keep colours away from them and also from all those who don't wish to play with colours. Let this festival give a pleasant memory to all!

Play a happy and safe Holi everyone!
