Gohil Emporium is an Aladdin’s cave of Pinterest-ready details and ornaments that will ensure your party is the most snapped in town. From decorated trays, plump floor cushions covered in intricate embroidery and gilded trims for guests to lounge upon, authentic vases and much, much more, the company has everything you need to transform your vision into a reality.
Here are three themes that will take your décor game to the next level...
Pretty touches to wow your guestsCushions
Available in a variety of sizes, these decorated cushions (all £POA) will look equally as good indoors as placed around a marquee for those having an al fresco party. We love the desi embroidery, mirrors and details - so chic!
Ghungroo make the prettiest sound, thanks to the hundreds of small metallic bells strung together to form the look. The trays come in a huge variety of sizes and are ideal for presenting the bridal trousseau from her future in-laws. They can also be used as part of the mehndi entrance with the tray bearing mehndi and candles.

For the Mithai
Give guests a taste of something sweet in the most stylish way possible with gold thread trimmed trays, perfect for presenting Indian sweets. The possibilities are endless; use them to create a sweet station where guests can help themselves, or for those hiring serving staff, load up with tasty mithai and watch them be devoured.

The colour of new beginnings
Style-conscious brides should take their mehndi party theme cues from nature with a burst of vibrant greenery. From decorative boxes for bangles, faux flower garlands and carved candle holders, Gohil Emporium has your décor needs sorted. Add an extra element of depth with a peacock theme. Just use green as your base and add complementary jewel tones. Done!Heart-shaped trays
Perfect for presenting chocolate, sweets, and gifts, we adore these heart shaped trays. Use them as a setting for decorative bowls and cups to use during the haldi ceremony. The heart shaped range includes trays and boxes, ideal for presenting bridal gifts such as jewellery, shoes and luxury beauty products.
Decorative Bangle Box
Sikh brides will adore these decorative bangle boxes, the perfect size for storing their 21 traditonal bridal choora after the Big Day. Gohil Emporium offers boxes in a range of jewel tone colours to suit your theme.
Duo trays are the perfect way to stuff your guests silly with sweets. This tray has compartments for two options (chocolate for the young, ladoo for the traditionalists) to satisfy all tastes. Having flower girls throw petals for your mehndi entrance? These decorated baskets (right) will help them do the job.

Paint the town (and your party) red
If you just can’t wait for the Big Day to roll out traditional lal, your mehndi party is the perfect opportunity to paint, if not the town, then at least your venue, red! Match your mehndi stain with your décor, using shades from the same family (like tomato, cherry, bordeaux and burgundy) to create depth across the space. Sprinkle a few metallic touches to really make it shine.Decorative Goblets
These are used differently according to religion. For example, Hindus will use the jug as part of the pre-wedding puja, while Sikhs use it to pour oil as a way of encouraging good fortune and luck. The cup can also be used to carry milk for Sikh ceremonies.
Serve in style
Snacks play a huge part in Asian wedding ceremonies and special events, so pretty boxes are essential for presenting them in style. Stuff with ladoos or fill with crispy bhajia - just leave room for chutney in the middle!
Autumn is a time for layering - and that goes for your mehndi décor too! Why not alternate tray colours for a more statement look, or decorate with faux haars to create more interest? The patterns also make it a fantastic place to rest mehndi cones.
