Dimly lit candles line the walls as gypsies in luxurious fur coats and velvet gowns sit across one another, each intrigued by the enigmatic mystery that is fortune telling. Here's how you and your friends can transform yourselves from the girl next door to gypsy queen for a fun night of fortune telling.
Set the Scene: Light a few candles, hang up some fairy lights and set the table with an array of knick knacks, old books and delicious snacks to convert a boring living room to a gypsy caravan. Don't be afraid to find some spooky or traditional Romani music to put you in the psychic mood. Your gypsy powers will flow more naturally if you really play the part.
Dress Up: Have fun with it! Grab a fur coat from the local op-shop or adorn yourself with jewels, dark lipstick and ragged shawls. The fourteenth century gypsies didn't give their most accurate readings in track pants.
A deck of tarot cards – Remember, it's all about interpretation so you don't need to be a legitimate psychic, just let the answers come to you. Maybe you see an in-ground pool in your friend's future, or perhaps a wild career change; you'll never know until you open up your ears to the universe.
