Picking a Henna Party Color Theme

While a henna tattoo party is already a theme, you might want to get even more specific and decide on a color theme for your party as well. Since natural henna dye is always brown, you might choose to have anything from decorations to napkins in bright pops of blue, red, or yellow.

Sending the Henna Party Invitations

You'll want to send your henna party invitations around one month before the actual celebration. Consider including a few pictures of temporary tattoos to give your guests a feel for the party and help them get excited. If you're using a color for a theme, you can also incorporate that color into your invitations.

Deciding on a Henna Tattoo Party Venue

Most henna parties in the Palo Alto area are held in a private home for intimacy and privacy. However, there are also plenty of options for other venues depending on how large your henna party is. A few of these choices include:

  • Hotel
  • Community center
  • Banquet hall
  • Private room at restaurant
  • Country club
  • Ballroom
  • Reception hall

Creating a Henna Party Menu

Creating a menu for your henna tattoo party is an exciting step. If you're having an Indian henna party, consider chai, chana masala, and chicken tikka masala as options. For a Moroccan party, think about couscous, b'stilla, and mint tea. You can also plan a menu around your favorite dishes or favorite food for the honoree of the party.

Choosing Henna Designs

Henna gives luck and blessings. When you're planning your party, keep in mind that henna designs represent different symbols, such as beauty, joy, and success. Other symbols include:

  • Lotus: creativity and grace
  • Flowers: joy and happiness
  • Buds: the start of new life
  • Vines: longevity
  • Peacock: beauty
  • Birds: freedom
  • Dragonflies: rebirth
  • Butterflies: change and transformation

  • Water: purification
  • Mandala: the universe
