Spring is in the air! The much-awaited festival of colors has finally arrived! Holi is a festival of boundless joys, togetherness, and enthusiasm. People from all faiths and communities apply colors to each other and celebrate this festival of love with equal fervor.

After a tough couple of pandemic years, you must be planning festivities with your closest friends and family this year. Amid pichkaris, the cloud of colors, sweets, and frolic, you will have plenty of ‘Instagram’ moments.

However, the festival arrives after mid-March by when many of us might have already spent a lot on rents, electricity bills, EMIs, and other household expenses. But fret not! It’s possible to plan a fun Holi celebration on a budget. All you need are some colours, delicious food, some music, and plenty of love to plan a perfect party.

Pick Your Colours

Colours are what add vitality and life to the festival. Shop for beautiful colours, and do keep it safe! You don’t want nasty rashes the next day for sure. So, ditch that ‘pakka rang’, and buy enough colours to last the entire day.

Start Planning the Home Decor

Want to create the perfect backdrop for your Holi pictures? Better get down to the décor right away then. You can beautify your nest with very few materials. All you need is some coloured paper, scissors, cello tape, and glue. Create colourful paper chains of the desired length to hang on the doors, fans, or windows. Another way to introduce more colours to your interiors is through balloons. Choose balloons of your favourite colours for your home entrance or window glasses. Fill some of them with water and colours for all the fun later on.

You can also come up with gorgeous rangoli designs at doorsteps and patio. You already have the colours. Now, all you need is a YouTube tutorial.

One more popular Holi decoration idea is to tie chain of colourful dupattas on the ceiling. This could make your home more radiant for visitors and family. Borrow dupattas if you don’t have any. Your mom would be happy to lend them to you.

Order Sweets

Speaking of moms in Holi, and the mind wanders to delicious sweets and gujiyas. We know how much you love them, but why not give her a break this year. You can order sweets with LazyPay and avail of attractive cashbacks when you order through Zomato or Swiggy.

Get Some Delicious Food

What’s a celebration without some delicious snacks and food? Enjoy a mixture of favourite cuisines your guests will like. Keep it a combination of traditional, as well as new treats that they will like. Some Holi favourites are pakoras, thandai, badam phirni, dahi bhalle, kachoris, chaat, and more.

Don’t let the expenses bother you. LazyPay is here. You can order food from a range of merchant partners like  McDonald’sTaco Bell, and Biryani By Kilo to avail cashbacks. Want to stir up some non-veg at home? Order from Fresh To Home with exciting offers.

A great tip here is to keep the quantity in control. People usually end up gorging on snacks and cold drinks in the hot weather. They are less inclined towards a 4-course meal.  Keep serving glasses of lemonade, lassi or thandai to keep everyone hydrated. Also, remember to know the vegetarian and non-vegetarian preferences of your guests.

Decide on the Music

Decorations, games, and music are integral to a great Holi party. Create the ambience with good Holi songs, and there are plenty out there. Which one comes to your mind? Create a Spotify playlist and send that to your friends and family, so that the music stays on in case your phone dies down.

You might want to purchase a speaker and connect it to your mobile to have a blast. There are many Bluetooth portable speakers in the market that you can buy on a budget. If you find something outside the range, simply play later in 15 days with LazyPay’s BNPL (Buy Now Pay Later) product.

Purchase a Gift for Your Loved Ones

If you are away from home this Holi, why not gift your parents something special to cheer them up. Gift crockery set to your mother and a kurta for your father. You might also want to send them some sweets on the occasion. You can search for Holi gifts and then filter by price to choose something that is within your budget.

This Holi, shop items that spread cheer and joy around. Online payments via the LazyPay app will ensure that you stay safe. What’s more, you can improve your credit score with some good repayment behaviour.
