2. Chalk Board Wall: Have an entire wall painted black and make it your graffiti central. Draw, write and doodle. Let guests do that when they come over too. Play pictionary or other games using your chalk-board walls. It is the perfect decor idea for people who want to keep it cool. What's cooler than your own graffiti wall?

4. Fairy Lights: Ah! There are so many ways to put fairy lights to use. You could hang them onto the trees, on the back of stage as a curtain, in a vase for centrepieces, and so on. We love the way they have been tied onto the trees with the beautiful genda phools complementing them. This one is an easy to do and so damn ROMANTIC.
