Our Holi Favorites | A what to eat, what to wear and where to play guide to celebrating Holi, the Indian festival of color. Included, a giveaway courtesy Masala Baby.
As Spring nears, we eagerly prepare for the most colorful festival of the year, Holi. Holi, the spring festival celebrated all throughout the world by Indians is also known as “The Festival of Colors”. It’s a joyous occasion which welcomes spring and brightness in every one’s lives. Huge parties are hosted and parks are filled with people of all ages celebrating the festival of colors. What I love most about Holi is the inclusion of everyone. It celebrates love and life, people from all walks of life, different ages and religions celebrate it. It truly brings everyone together. Now more than ever I believe in educating each other about our differences, celebrating and accepting them.
This year we’ve partnered with Masala Baby, a Globally inspired brand made in India, based in New York that celebrates color, quality and ethically made clothing. We’re sharing where to play, what to eat and what to wear to your Holi celebrations. We’re also hosting a HUGE HOLI GIVEAWAY! (Giveaway details below)
Of course you can celebrate at home or in your local park, but Holi is all about the more the merrier! Here’s a list to some events happening in your city.

Masala Baby’s signature aesthetic transcends trends. Each season, they delve into journeys that are aspirational and connect the dots from east to west. They love all things beautiful and meaningful. And because of their love of color, their Spring-Summer collections are super fun and colorful.
The other collection Little Mirchi is wearing is from the Passage To India collection. Launching in March, this collection transports you far away with its vibrant hues, delicate embroidery, ikat fabrics, and bold prints. Rich golden yellow, hot pink, and bold prints make up this collection, you can see this on the ikat pink dress and block print elephant dress Little Mirchi is wearing. This collection even features fun Mommy & Me styles with matching baby one pieces, baby dresses, girls dresses, and women’s dresses and tunic!
What we love about these dresses is that they are soft, colorful and effortlessly chic. The touches of traditional work paired with modern colors are a perfect fit for little girls with spunk! As a mom I look for dresses that can be used season after season, wash well and are soft on the skin. These dresses go above and beyond in all these categories and are a total parenting win!
The pop of colors on these dresses make them the perfect Holi outfit.
Holi is all about color and that should relate to food as well, fresh ingredients and colorful dishes. Here are some of our favorite Holi inspired dishes.
