India Today - - SIMPLY DELHI - by Ekta Mar­waha

Bored of putting up the same old stream­ers and bal­loons for her daugh­ter’s birthday par­ties, art and craft en­thu­si­ast Parul Ohri de­cided to cre­ate party dec­o­ra­tions us­ing things at home. “It was very dif­fi­cult to find fancy dec­o­ra­tions, and car­toon char­ac­ters back then. They weren’t as eas­ily avail­able as they are now,” says Ohri. One of her ini­tial ex­per­i­ments in­volved mak­ing mag­nets as re­turn gifts— she set plas­ter of paris in idli moulds, stuck mag­nets on one side and painted car­toon char­ac­ters on the other. Her cre­ativ­ity was of­ten ad­mired by guests at her par­ties, and she soon be­gan get­ting or­ders to cre­ate birthday in­vites and re­turn gifts. Seven years later, she’s grad­u­ated from mag­nets to themes, dec­o­ra­tions and per­son­alised re­turn gifts for chil­dren across Delhi and NCR. Her brand Tweet­mintt aims to cre­ate “minty fresh items for lit­tle tweet­ies”. If you wish to add some jazz to your party then we sug­gest giv­ing Parul a call— cards, cal­en­dars, books, di­aries, tow­els, sta­tion­ary, toys, boxes, pack­ets, re­turn gifts, frames, you name it and she’ll cre­ate it. “Now I have a set of peo­ple work­ing with me, so once I’ve met the client and de­cided on a de­sign, I know how to ex­e­cute it,” she says.

COST Rs 75 on­wards per card and Rs 300 on­ward per cal­en­dar
