This time I am taking a break from all the beauty and fashion tips. So, friends there’s going to be no beauty/fashion topic to pour on this weekend. I will come back with more beauty and fashions tips next week. After all its Diwali and I wanted to share some Diwali decoration ideas with you.
Colors, lights, food and fun are the basis of Diwali festivities. But, decking up your home for the festival of lights is not easy. Right from the cleanings to getting everything fixed, buying all those decorative items or may be DIYing them to sprucing up the rooms, you need to burn lots of energy to achieve that perfect look. And then there’s food too that you will have to prepare. Well, this sounds pretty inhibiting right? But, let me tell you all these except the cleaning, is actually quite easy!!!
Sprucing up the rooms
Cleaning up the rooms, painting the walls, changing the curtains and doing all those basic makeovers takes care of half of the decorations. A few tweaks afterwards is all of what is required. Flowers, beautiful diyas, paper work and home decor items are some of the must haves to pep up your home. So, here’s some of the Diwali decoration ideas you can try:
1.The flower power – Flower has the power to spruce up any look. Adding flowers to any kind of decoration is an easy way to finish off the task at hand and spend more fun moments with your family and friends. Get all those bright colored Marigold chains and Roses to add a charm to your rooms. Marigold torans look beautiful and can be used to decorate the entrance area. More can be used to create pretty designs on shelves, tables and the corners of the rooms. Adding rose petals in between the decorations would not only make things look good, but also smell good. Serving a tray of some traditional delicacies to the guests? Add few rose petals to the serving tray. Your guests would be floored!!

2.Playing around with colors – Rangoli is a must for Diwali decorations at home and you should not give it a miss. Use stencils to make designing a rangoli easier and less time taking. You can create any design you want or else check out the videos easily available on the web, for some inspiration.
3.The subtle play of light and glitterati – Lights, mainly the diyas are a must for Diwali. LED lights are in fad right now, but I love the traditional diyas more. Colored or the classic ones; add lots and see the difference. The rooms look brighter and cheerful than ever! Create beautiful patterns with diyas or simply put them in the corners. You can also create your own DIY diyas either by coloring the classic terracota ones or using flours, glitters and sequins. Various stores sell diyas online as well.
4.All the little things – Little things such as changing the cushions, curtains, bed covers and adding a few decorative items here and there gussies up the look in minutes. Using old sarees as cushion covers is a great way to change the whole game. You need not even stitch these.Cut out half a metre of saree and wrap it around the pillow and then tie it up; that’s it. Your now sew pillow cover is done.
5.The resplendent metal – Add brass and copper wares to make the rooms all the more resplendent. For example, a big brass pot full of water, flowers and floating candles in the middle of the sitting room would make it look classy. Bring out those old copper figurines and mementos and adorn the shelves and other display units with them. The saying old is gold still holds true when it comes to the Diwali decoration ideas.
