Mehndi AKA Henna Art

We have all seen beautiful henna/mehndi designs before and hasn’t it left you thinking that you wish you could be that creative?

Well, to be honest, you can.

Its really not hard, because if you could draw a relatively nice picture, than you can henna/mehndi patterns easily.

The above pattern is something I did in about 15 minutes… After thinking up a design for about 30 minutes…
I needed inspiration, that’s why I took that long to think something up..

The reason I decided to actually do henna/mehndi is because lots of ladies have been requesting henna/mehndi patterns on their cakes for the mehndi night functions.

I think they look stunning.

All I need is a bit more practice and I’ll be doing it on all cakes requested for mehndi nights.

If you’d like simple, pretty patterns, I don’t mind putting it on for you. However please book via email.

Hope you give putting henna/mehndi on a try, its rather awesome and fun and natural.

And it in a few weeks it washes out, so if you don’t like it, you’ll be thankful its not permanent.

Until next time..
