The festival certainly brings a lot of joy and excitement but let us not forget the stress that it creates in the family. Preparation for the festival starts with cleaning and re-decorating your homes. Flowers, rangolis, and lights are used to decorate houses. Getting your home Diwali ready is none other than a major task that requires a lot of time, and energy as well as a few ideas for decorating.
Before decorating, ensure you have cleaned and dusted every corner of the house. This will make it easier for you to start the fun decorating process. Here are a few tips and ideas which could be used or kept in mind while getting your home ready for the festival of lights.
With blessings from the almighty, let us start at the pooja room. Go all out while decorating this room. This is the best way to create a positive vibe during the auspicious festival. Brighten up the room by using a few antique brass lamps on either side of the room. If possible, also hang some traditional oil lamps on the sides.
Your bathroom can also look and smell festive during Diwali. Let the joyous festival open doors to a fresh bathroom. Use decorative vases and put some fresh-smelling flowers into them. Let the smell of aromatic candles bless the entire space. You can also add a touch of personalization by hanging a few wall décors along the walls.
The room which sees the most festive spirit is the common family room. The living room needs to look lively during every festival and Diwali is no exception. Flower arrangements, diyas, candles, decor, and furnishings, collectively will create an inspiring space. Use a nice traditional bowl to place your flower arrangements. Light up the entire space with a lot of diyas, lamps, and scented candles.Sabai grass baskets
Diwali is incomplete if no special food is served. Decide the type of table seating you would wish to follow. You can lay out some beautiful cutlery for your guests. Serve your food from mesmerizing brass bowls and plates. These would provide a very authentic yet modern setting for your guests.
If you happen to have a balcony, don’t forget to decorate that as well. Use diyas and candles to create a festive look. Hanging lights from your balcony is also a good idea. The use of string lights can also be a good idea. Place some nice flower-bearing plants into some nice decorative planters to bring more life into your space.
