Thousands of revelers beat drums and dance. Thousands more offer their prayers to the goddess of wealth. There are smiling faces everywhere. Diwali is one festival that illuminates people’s hearts and lives with myriad colors and lights. Diwali is important not only for its religious significance, but also for the happiness of getting together with friends and family. In the society, the celebration of Diwali brings the community together and enriches joyous moments among its residents. While a special puja dedicated to Goddess Lakshmi is an indispensable part of the day, home decoration is integral too.

For NRIs who travel home to celebrate the occasion with their closest friends and family and end up scratching their head in confusion looking at the wide array of decorative items at malls and big discounts getting bigger with the approaching day, here are a few tips.

Lamps (Diya)
There is a reason why Diwali is popularly known as the ‘festival of lights’. No Diwali decorations can be thought of without considering diyas. This time, paint the earthen lamps or embellish them with sequins, beads, minakari work etc. to give them the chic look. Panchmukhi floral diyas can be painted as per your own DIY styles too.

Candles And Lanterns
Diwali lanterns or ‘Aakash Kandil’ create the perfect festive ambience. You may get floating candles as well to float in varied colors on urns filled with colored water. Use as many colored stones, glitters and mirrors to add to your Diwali mood. For something unique, light charcoal in terracotta pots lined with foil to make them look like unique lanterns.

Rangolis, colorful designed made on the floor, is a traditional Diwali decor. Be creative with Rangoli and use mirrors and embellishments. Mix and match your rangoli designs with the areas of your house that scream contemporary.

Flowers are the best decorative items. Pick garlands of colorful flowers like rose, marigold, jasmine etc. and fix them along your stair handles to create a festive ambience. Combine string of lights with flowers to add to the elegance. Use old and traditional copper and brass urns a vase with a bunch of lotus buds and fully blossomed flowers.


Bandanwars are a traditional decorative for the festival of Diwali. Hang up a bell at the entrance to your house and wrap strings of colored lights for added effect. Let the visitors ring it instead of the electric door-chime for the festive feel. You can also use wind chimes.

Diwali is one auspicious occasion when most Indians splurge on high net worth items, mostly houses. Whether you are buying a new house or not, don’t forget to decorate it with all your heart. Once you are done, set up an al fresco dining for them to enjoy the view of the night sky filled with fireworks. We wish you a safe and happy Diwali.
