Ideas to light up your home ...

I wonder if I 'd call it a tray scape ... hmmm ... its quite like an instant magical touch ... well in this case ... instant Diwali Decor ...


A tray ... a few of your fav. things and flowers ... some greens ...lights ...

I was arranging the orchids in my silver tea pot ... the green glass looked nice with the silver ...along came some sand paper vine leaves ... and the tea light and candles and well ...




... a coffee table ... a console table ... your side unit ... a cozy nook ... and just about anywhere you decide ... I think you could try this arrangement ... complete with your diyas or candles ... I'm sure you too will feel the festive mood ...with some instant Diwali decor ...

If you liked this idea do share your thought with me ... would love to hear from you ... who knows two thoughts put together and we just may have another decor idea ... :)

Lovely.Besides lovely decor, u have such a knack for taking pictures.
Magical!!!
I am planning to put tea lights into even smaller "shot glasses" this time.

Urban Green said...

It looks beautiful. I'm definitely going to put together something like this. Do you think a touch of muted gold will do good?

Latin Sardar said...

Nice!! This kinda arrangement really comes into its own at night.

Nycia @ Inspired Events said...

I love it, great idea!! Visit my blog for a Star Bucks Giveway!!

Ever Green Tree said...

I love the way you accentuate the Greens with some the candles Rajee. Beautiful Snaps!

Wishing you n your Family a very Happy Navratri & a Joyous Festive Season ahead....

Meenakshi said...

again girl you nailed it .. I love the whole look .. I like the tealight in the glass gives me some idea :)

Suneeta Revo said...

Very nice Rajee... I wish some of creativity rubs on me too...I love your ideas...keep going

Southern Aspirations said...

Gorgeous! Love how the lights reflect differently- and the candles on the tray and off. Like Urban Green's thought of muted gold, which would go. What about silver for more contrast?

Patricia Torres said...

Oh wow!!! Absolutely loved it.... I'm surely going to try this one .... using the tray... Thanks for sharing these lovely pics Rajee... I already feel like Diwali!!

Sunita said...

Sigh! Rajee, you really have the magic touch! Lovely!
Your home is going to look so magical this Diwali and I look forward to seeing many posts with a whole lot of photos to feast on.
Just one question : will the heat of the tea-lights or candles affect the table and its polish, etc. ? Does it leave patchy rings?

Anuradha Varma said...

Thanks for sharing these lovely ideas. The pictures are beautiful and reflects the magic of Diwali. I too am busy toying with ideas and its fun to see what we all can do together for this special time of the year.

Hi Monika,
Love your idea ... another suggestion ... split the use... some for shots and rest for tea lights ... ;)
I do try to make the pictures interesting ... but I know I am an amateur at that art as yet... :)

Rajee Sood said...

Hi Urban Green,
You ask a lady who has gilded things galore ... hell! yes... it'll look jut fine ... and what better way to just do it and find out ... :)

Rajee Sood said...

Hi Parji,
Nice to see you ... feeling the festive vibes ... I'm sure your mum would be a tad bit teary eyed if you tried out some thing around the house.Moms have that thingy for their kids ... just getting senti looking at my girl ... ;)

Rajee Sood said...

Hi Nycia,
Thankyou for dropping by ... will sure check out your give away... :)

Rajee Sood said...

Hi Radhika,
Guess a gardner would understand ... flowers are beauiful but can't do without the greens ... :)
Wish you and your family a Very Happy Festive Season too ... :)

Rajee Sood said...

Hi Meenakshi,

Rajee Sood said...

Hi Suneeta,
:) ... thanks for all the encouragement ... you can make a girl feel good...:)

Rajee Sood said...

Hi Southern Aspirations,
Yep , Gold would be great ... but honestly its all about what collection you compose that would justify the colors we talk about ... hope you all are into loads of experiments ... :)

Hi Sunita,
Hope I am home ... too many destinations to cover ... this year I am not sure where Diwali will see us ... ;)
As for the tea light on a polished or even a glass table ... votive holder always a better idea ... :)

amazing how candles brighten an area.good work rajee

Sakala said...

Rajee, I have those Arabic lamps, hanging all over my garden during Diwali, I put tea lights in Kawa glasses with a bit of water in the bottom (to spread the heat), and decorated a center table - seating 20 people with candles all over the place. Spray the garden with camphor and eucalytus oil mixed in water (for mosquitos). This was last year, I have to do something new this year.

Rajee Sood said...

Hi Sakala,
