The Thali Resembling Jewellery

Women deck up beautifully on this special day of Karva Chauth. It becomes icing on the cake if the items for the pooja are in sync with the jewels a woman has donned. Since red holds a special place in one’s heart while performing a pooja, match the glittering red theme on the thali and the pot along with the sieve. Add to it some hand-picked beads and kundans similar in style to the ones used in the earrings, necklaces, rings, and others.

The Three Color Themed Thali

Trying to avoid much ado to your pooja items? Golden is the color that is of many volumes, so much so that it says much by itself. It requires no aid for shades. Paint the contents in rich plain golden. Fill it up with three basic colors-white, red and green. These colors will not only add authenticity but also a charm without much loudness. Add some delicately carved mirror beads to reflect radiance from it.

The Plush Pink Themed Thali

No other color than pink itself can add that amount of delicacy and innocence to an object. Bring together some soft pink fabrics to enrich the charm of the thali. Think of little golden fabrication to garnish and some thread-like fabrics to leave them loosely hanging. The beauty will simply lie in the pretty shade of salmon pink.

The Total Festive Wave

Our houses are already glittering with lustrous colors as Diwali awaits. Add a shining flavor to the thali and its articles by applying those deep colors to them. Fill the items up with stickers of colors like scarlet red, golden yellow, aqua blue, and shades of maroon to amplify their potent manifold. Don’t forget to fancify your contents with easily available 3D outliner designs and some neat beads to sum things up.

The Charismatic Thali Art

There is required a lot of other items of significant use other than sieves and water pots in a thali. Camphor balls, rice grains, kumkum powder holy threads etcetera are of equal importance. To limit them to small spaces, use tiny bowls bordered with pretty laces to make them attractive and uniform on the plate. Don’t forget to cover the thali accordingly to match the bowls. Create a design covering a major portion to get rid of blank places in the thali.

The Rosy Red Thali

Red color always adds a new dimension to anything it is used on, the only things different are its complementing materials. Use a fluffy red fabric for the thali, sieve, and water pot. Hang funky pearl tickers to give a plump look. Stick a row of red pompoms and lots of tiny roses made of satin ribbons. Add a section of pearl beads and make the thali the thing of the day!

Thali With Metallic Look

Lucid red on metal adds flaming hot texture in all regards. The cold surface will make the thali even more welcoming. Spray some amount of acrylic thinner on all the inclusive surfaces, then start spraying red acrylic to it. Give adequate time to let it dry. Paste beads and pearls and other decorative items on the surfaces. Consider completing the job with a beaded swastika in the center.

The Aqua Green Themed Thali

Red, orange, pink and yellow are always the prominent colors while designing items for pooja. If you call for a contemporary look this year, something as comforting as a marine shade of green is completely apt. Use a simple net for the thali. Make light plates on it to add texture. Complement the water pot and sieve with green laces. Cover the borders with tiny pompoms of the same color. You are done with an amazing and uniquely designed thali!

The Sparkling Gold Thali

Gold never gets old. Paint your thali a glittering gold to add richness to your set. Include the water pot and diya as well when you cover the contents in golden colour. Paste some golden embroidery laces and sequins to complete this look of the utterly tawny shade. Pair it up with shining silver sequins, giving it the required contrast and make the onlookers go completely gaga over your preparations.

The Cloth And Kundan Fusion Thali

What can be better than using Kundan and cloth to decorate your special item for the special day? Cover your thali with net cloth. Make light plates to add more texture. Paste some easily available decorative items made of cloth to steal the evening. You can add some hangable kundans from a previously used saree or suit to bring a completely new dimension to the thali.

The Red Traditional Themed Thali

There is no other color that can be a better mixture of both auspiciousness and elegance. Cut a circular, thali-sized shape from an out-of-wardrobe red saree of dupatta. Use the same part of clothing to decorate the sieve(chhanni) borders and the water pot and the diyas. Fill it up with sweets and delicacies. Add a bar of chocolate and some nicely packed almonds and dry fruits.

The Traditional Marwari Thali

How about making our way back to the original concept of thali decoration? Let’s give a Rajasthani look. Taking red or any shade of it as the base color, fill it up with some silver sequins(readily available in markets). Add to the look some hangable pom-pom and Kundan tickers. Paste some easily available sequin-based rangoli designs and complete it with bordering the thali with silver and golden beaded laces.

The Simple Elegant Thali

Not in love with bright colors? Do you find beauty in simplicity? We have one such idea for you as well. Go for a decent pink color to cover the contents of your pooja. Add on it a finger-wide lace to add elegance to your simplicity. Go for a thin golden lace for the border. Don’t leave the glass untouched. Wind around it one such lace and make it look a mix of ‘nothing done’ but ‘much done’.

The Thali With Velvety Touch

Are you already fearing the cliché thali decorations made of cloth and paper? Go for an altogether different approach of decoration- a velvet cloth. Choose a deep red velvet cloth and cut is the shape of the thali. Now add some sequin-stickers in the form of aesthetic designs. Do not forget to cover the borders to make it look complete in itself. DO regular designing of the pot and sieve, and you are ready with an ingenious thali!

The Pale White Steel Thali

What if we give our thali a different color than the regular red and maroon colors? Don’t want to tarnish the pure steel of your thali? Give your steel a pearl-like look by choosing your ingredients of the desired color. Leave the surface intact. Cover the borders with pearl white laces and fold it inwards to gain more traction to hold the thali. Stick to designing the borders only of the water pot and the sieve as well.

The Easy And Simple Look Thali

Stick some completely random golden piece of lace on the outer of the sieve. Use the same lace to fence one-inch wide circumference of the glass. Not to forget, keep a simple decorative piece of cloth on the thali before setting up all the contents of the thali. Use a designer diya to complete the look of this spectacular thali idea.
