Diwali is that part of the year where the whole country is dipped in festivity. The shops are flocked with consumers buying sweets, crackers, decorations and colours .The houses are cleaned from top to bottom and painted right from the walls to the furniture and to the metal frames of the doors and windows and the main gate. People are buying gifts for the family, relatives and friends. Interior during festival is different from other day to day interiors. The emphasis is more on colour, tradition and handicrafts. Let us discuss a few decorating tips for the approaching diwali.

rong>Reason for shopping

To decorate the home it is not important to spent thousands with a little creativity and imagination to get the festive look. You can also small things to give a dramatic look .A short visit to the local market or a stroll in the street where the potters have the entire payment to display candle stands, dolls, elephants, frogs, flower vases, table lamp all made in ceramic and hand painted in red and green colour for gifting and decorating purposes. Buying goods with discount offers whether online or in the market itself.

Diyas and candles are a must

  Diwali without light is unthinkable .Clay diya, Deepak or a brass oil lamp with a single or multiple wicks with or without the stand are used to light using ghee or oil as a fuel for burning the wick and placed in the place of worship or in the exteriors of the house on the balcony wall or on the entrance. Floating candles with a drop of aromatic oil gives a traditional and festive look. Candles are available in different shapes and colour lovely red, lovely pink and bright green, purple or blue .The candles are available in boxes in plastic containers. Designer candle lit containers in metal or glass in cut glass pattern are also used in decoration.

 Silver ware or other metal cutlery

Time to take out the beautiful silverware spoons, plates, tea pots or serving trays .It is used for worship by filling the cups with Prasad or vermillion filled with rice to apply on the forehead of any guest that comes to visit you to wish you and your family on this auspicious day. Vintage dining cutlery and plates in bronze or copper to make it look more authentic and traditional .Brass pots and jugs can be filled with holy water to be sprinkled around the house for smooth flow of positive energy. Wouldn’t it be nice to serve the food in bronze or copper urli’s or handies instead of china or ceramic wares?

Gifting

Photo frames, fashion jewellery, bed sheet, towels or paintings would be a great gifting option for your near and dear ones .Choose if from online or check for discounts and buy according to your budget .Ceramic knobs, hooks and handles from the handicraft store in creative and unique designs packed in a set of 4 to 6 pieces for your relatives and family would be a creative and functional use.

Idols for worship and sweets

Buying a silver coin with the image of ganesh and laxmi is considered sacred and placed in the place of worship. Also bronze Ganesha and laxmi, gautam Buddha, kamdhenu cow are also great gifting items. Indulge in your favourite sweet whether it is cakes, pastries or biscuits. A good option making besan ladoos, milk burfy or coconut laddoos or other such sweets that can be made and stored in boxes and used to offer to guest or the family .

Wishing you all the readers a safe and happy diwali .
