It was one of the most beautiful and extravagantly fun sunsets we have yet to share.

Tips for working with holi powder:

  • We purchased 7, 7 oz. bags for under $20 on Amazon.
  • The brighter and darker the colors, the better. Hot pink, orange, green, yellow and purple were our faves.
  • Go somewhere where you can have fun and get messy: the beach, a forest, random side street, graffiti alley, the dessert, get creative! You don’t want to have to hold back.
  • Wear clothes and undergarments you don’t mind ruining. Our white t-shirts will never be white again, but our pants were pretty much fine. There is one section of yellow that I can’t get out of my jeans, but they’ve now become my “artist pants” so it’s no biggie.
  • If you can help it, don’t wear contacts in your eyes. Drew’s were dyed red and he had to toss ’em.
  • Bring a towel/ a change of clothes and a garbage bag.
  • Girls, paint your nails a fun color, wear fun bracelets, pearls stay white and stand out nicely in photos (see my earrings).
  • Have fun! This powder is used in celebration of love and it’s not everyday that you get to throw fists-full of anything at your lover 🙂
