Diwali Decor Ideas

Diwali is a beautiful festival. For me, decorating my home is a big part of all the festivities. As an Indian living abroad, Diwali is a time to relive those wonderful memories of growing up in India. I would like my children to experience the same traditions and festivities.


I enjoy the preparation for the Puja, the flowers, the lights, and of course, giving the home a new look just for Diwali !

I am not a big believer of having a specific theme or a specific colour for my Diwali decor. I think you should look around your home, find some pretty things that are meaningful for you, and simply go with that.

This Diwali, I am using my mom’s old sari as a tablecloth. This was one of the first saris I ever wore ! Flowers, of course, are a necessary accessory. You don’t need a lot, just a few will do! I am also including a few silver pieces that have been in my home for generations. For the place setting, I have my regular china on a hammered white metal square charger. To give it a festive and Indian look, I have spray painted some leaves and placed them on the plate! Don’t be afraid to blend different styles……you never know what you might come up with.

This Diwali, let the decor in your home be about who you are! The colours you love and the things you cherish will surely bring a smile to your face. Welcome your family and friends with warmth and love. Beautiful smiles, twinkling lights, fresh flowers……. and you have everything set for the perfect Diwali. Here’s wishing you a Diwali filled with happiness from my home to yours.
