Colorful designs of, say, elephants or the Taj Mahal, will help set the stage for your Bollywood party. Don't forget to play Bollywood videos or music, alongside your candles, flower petals, and golden... anything, to transport your guests to beautiful India.

Not everyone may wear Indian clothing to your party, but draping a bright scarf diagonally across a top (of any kind), suggests wearing a sari. Letting the two ends of the scarf fall down your back -- as when wearing shalwar kameez -- will add an Indian flair to your guest's outfits.

Intricate details are a beautiful feature of Indian aesthetics, as seen in the mehndi (henna) design on this cake.
A fun Bollywood party activity is setting out some mehndi patterns, and let your guests create temporary tattoos (using washable markers, perhaps) on their hands or feet.
And don't forget to leave a "bindi" -- a small dot between the eye brows -- as the "third eye" of wisdom. If it's red, it usually shows you're married, and represents honor, love, and prosperity.

To make curry taste rich and creamy, add canned (unsweetened) coconut milk! You could use a curry spice blend for convenience, instead of the various spices listed. If you don't have naan or roti available, serve curry with rice and freshly-cooked flour tortillas.
This traditional Indian beverage, made with mango and yogurt, is a refreshing and creamy smoothie everyone will love.
