Diwali is that magical time of the year when lights, fireworks, firecrackers and a variety of other fire-related paraphernalia are everywhere. You'll also find plenty of stalls selling delicious and lip-smacking Diwali-themed products. Firecrackers, especially, are a staple part of any Diwali party. To enhance the party atmosphere, you can also opt for fire-flicking diyas and ornaments. With so many options available and a range of prices, you are sure to find a Diwali decoration that is perfect for your budget.
Most diwali decoration ideas focus on candles and diyas. However, by choosing some subtle hints instead, you can dress up your house without going overboard. Using flower arrangements and small jars as your inspiration for decorating your home, you can add some originality to the decorations. In case you would rather not get your hands messy with candles and diyas, then using flowers as your inspiration is a great alternative.
In fact, flower themes are very popular during this time of the year. One of the most attractive flower-based diwali decoration themes that you can choose from is the pooja. If you are hosting a traditional Indian wedding, pooja can really set the tone for the entire season. During the season, garlands of flowers, wooden idols of gods and goddesses and other objects carved with flowers are seen all over the streets, making the entire festival seem very colourful. In order to keep the mood bright and cheery during the festival, you can also choose to incorporate traditional diwali colors into your diwali display in addition to the traditional flower garlands.
Flowers are also highly appreciated as the diwali decoration material. There are so many different types of flowers that can be displayed depending on your choice. In fact, the pooja and other arrangements can be made using any combination of colours, giving you a wider range of colours to choose from. For example, if you are expecting a lot of guests at your reception, then you can consider using pink and red flowers combined with orangis, or perhaps black and white combinations that would contrast the red and pink colours used for the pooja.
Another option for diyas that can really add to your celebrations is colorful silks, velvet and brocade diyas. These types of traditional diyas do not need to be chosen just according to their colours. Instead, they can be chosen according to the shape and size of the table. For example, if you have a small table at the back of the hall where you will be sitting for your engagement ceremony, then you can consider using tiny silks that match the colour of your invitation and the invitees dresses.
Candles make great elements of your diwali decoration ideas. These come in many sizes and shapes. However, some people choose to light up candles as opposed to using diyas. A favorite option is to use a beautiful candle chandelier rather than using candles. If you have an elegant table set with splendid decorations on it, then a collection of tea lights can be used and complimenting the table beautifully.
If you want to get more creative with your candle decoration, then a wonderful idea would be to decorate a candle with rice that has been soaked in milk. You can even decorate these rice grains in various colours. The only problem with this idea is that it requires some skill as well as some patience to keep the candle flame under control. To do this, you will need some electrical work as well as a traditional candle holder. However, if you are creative, then you can get away with any sort of candle cor.
Another wonderful idea for your diwali table decor is torans. Torans are traditionally used in Mughal houses where it was customary to hang torans on the walls. However, torans are now available in a wider variety of designs. You can find hanging torans, table top torans, corner torans, modern torans and traditional torans in all shapes, sizes and designs.
