Last minute decor for Diwali ... a miniature arrangement ...

Are you looking for some last minute decor tips for Diwali ... or just another feature to add to the well planned out all done up home ... a series of miniature arrangements could be just what you are looking for ...




... a set of glasses and flowers of the same kind ... is probably all you will need ...


... I even thought of using them as a centre piece ... and how about a lovely gilded frame ... for a base ... :)
I swiped one of the paintings done by my daughter ... a nostalgic piece from when she was just about 2 yrs. old ... I love the colors and the gold of the frame ...
... each individual piece placed around the house....just pulls the whole decor together like a common thread ...



... its the simplest decor you can think of ... but when you stand back and look at them ... they look rather charming ...





Did I say Indian brassware was really happening with me this year ... ahh! hope you liked this bit of last minute affair ... do let me know what you think of miniature flower arrangements ... :)

n oh.... Which camera do u own??? I am unable to post any stuff bcos the camera is dead!! Ur pics always come out stunning. It could have more to do with the photographer than the camera but I'm just curious.

nice pics, brass work really stands out to catch the eye...
Diwali is just around the corner but this year will be a rather damp affair. Hoping for a big one next year in the new house though, that would be something to watch out for.

Wow, Gurgaon is like the backyard. Whenever life drives me to the hills, I head for Gurgaon. I live in Janakpuri as of now, no reason so far why it should change by this time next year.

Sakala said...

Rajee, I decided to have a garden party. Kids, dogs and all. The problem is not the your flower arrangements(brilliant), but the lighting, there is breeze - a lot of it, and Diwali without lights is not good. So back to my Arabic lanterns again.

Devi said...

Royal and beautiful..silver and rose makes a great combination

Rajee Sood said...

Praji, be ready to drive over to the hills,often ... :)

Rajee Sood said...

Rajee Sood said...

Oh! dear Sakala ... honey ... the lighting ideas ... I know ... even though I started this series 2 months in advance ... phew there was so much happening ... I really couldn't cover all that I wanted to ... hopefully in coming times I'll cover more and all the inputs I get help me plan out in advance ... in the meanwhile hope yours is a fab Diwali ... under the Arabian lanterns ... Have a happy one... :)

Rajee Sood said...

Hi Devi,
I am so glad you liked it ... great to hear from you ... wish you a real wonderful time this Diwali ... :)

Rekha said...

This is simply beautiful, Rajee...lovely ideas

Sharon Colaco D'Souza said...

I love your brass collection, but these buckets are super! Where did you get them from? Heirlooms polished up? And the warmth of the red roses look bril, such a fab combination!

Well done, yet again:)

Rajee Sood said...

Hi Sharon ... Hi Rekha ,
Thank you ladies ... :) Sharon ... those are not heirloom pieces ... I happened to have bumped into some stunning pieces at a local shop ... it was lovely splurge I sooo enjoyed ... still got some pieces I am eyeing ... ;)
