Diwali Decor

It is time for the Festival of lights again – “Deepavali “. A time for celebrations, prayers, gifts and candle-lit evenings with loved ones. Fill your home with the warm glow of oil lit lamps and candles.

I personally love the traditional and antique look that allows the lights to take the centre stage.


The tradition of oil lit lamps is something special. South Indian Lamps which are available in different sizes and shapes, lend a picture perfect traditional decor in any corner it is assimilated.

Marigolds as everybody knows, lend  beauty in its best and how about a uruli full of Marigolds surrounded by the ghee lit lamps. Let it radiate the beauty and the divinity in the corners…I make sure I have some corners truly to be called the eclectic corners in the house..

There are innumerable ideas to dress up your home for the festival. Let glamour and tradition go hand in hand. Indianise a contemporary decor to go with the traditional festivities.

Don’t just display fairy lights, instead drape them under the table, beneath the vases and for the puja room. Pool the tissue over the rice lights.

The fabric serves three functions : it hides the unsightly wires of the rice lights, transforms the bright pinpricks of individual lights into a gentle effulgence.

A gold tissue is an excellent embellishment to cover the glasses in which you float some tea lights. These are one of the effective options you could try.

Simple brass utensils which we use at home can be effectively used to float tea lights and flowers, instead of the glass bowls.
