Gearing up for Diwali ... :)


 Its that time of the year ... yeppy ...its Diwali ...Diwali ...Diwali  ... time ... I wanted to start my series about Diwali Decor a month early like last year ... Ah! ... who am I kiddin' ... life does have its own course ... ;) ... and mine has been under fire from ... viral ... Dengue, in the family ... domestic helps being packed off by the local police before the CWG ... leaving me with the broom ... duster and  the spatula all at the same time ... keyboard and camera being a far cry ... :)

 ...well! no harm done ... my Diwali spirits are in top shape and hope yours are too ... :) ... I'm pulling out the brassware ... thinking about the flowers ... candles ... lanterns .. fairy lights ... loads of cleaning ... tons of polishing ...

 ... if you are looking for your Diwali decor inspirations ... hope you'll be stopping by ... pick your color theme ... decide on the flowers ... I love to spread them all around the house in small bunches ... how about one set of glasses for the flowers ... :)


... if you've been all for the traditional Diwali colors all these years ... a slight bend towards a new color might just add that special zing to your decor ...

... talking about colors ... it may be more interesting to note that picking a color as your theme and co-ordinating your complete decor around it ... would bring that clam and classy feel ... which calls for a control on all your urges to buy ... candles and lights and flowers and linen in all shades of the rainbow ... :)
Are you looking forward to creating a special feel in your home this Diwali ... or do you always get stuck with what to do ... mail me and lets share what all there is to explore and go beserk ... having fun doing up the home before Diwali .... ;)

For me Diwali is synonymous with diyas, taras and rangolis and I love to see fairy lights draped on trees, light poles...everywhere!

Beautiful beyond words Rajee, loved your brass candle holder, where did you get it from?

SG said...

wouldn't lamps be more appropriate for Diwali ? Coming from a country that is known for all kinds of exquisite lamps in all kinds of materials, I find it disconcerting to use candles for such a 'desi' occasion.
