Diwali Home Decor

diwali urli

Hi Everyone. :)

Nandini asked me do some decor posts on Diwali. Well! although the actual decoration would happen on the Diwali day itself but these are some of the many things that would be prettifying my home. :D

A gorgeous Rajasthani blue work urli that I picked up from Dastakar. It is a lovely decor piece in itself but for Diwali, fresh flower petals and some floating candles would beautify the pot. :)

Some zari work and tissue gift boxes,which I have filled up with dry fruits and chocolates.

Dry leaves scented candles on an embellished tray.

A ganesh carved diya. On Diwali, I’d fill it up with oil and light it.

Just revived my DIY Coffee Beans candles to DIY fresh flower candles. :)

    • Rati says:

      thanks dita. :)

      you can use those colorful lanterns and use t-lights to light up the home. of course flower decorations and those magic candles are always an option. :) Happy decorating and do share how you decorated your home. :)

So now, I actually have no freaking space for my clothes :P Everything needs to fit into the chotu cabin baggage wala bag :’(

    So festive. Pictures are so well taken. Iliked the zari work picture the most. The colors are gorgeous.

    Btw,i loved the color of your karvachauth outfit so much (the orange/rust) one that i picked up an Anarkali style kurta in that color.

    • Rati says:

      thank you aruna. :)) I think it’s the whole diwali feel that makes everything look soo pretty. :)) and enjoy wearing your kurta. It’s such a pretty color. I love it too. :))

  14. sweta says:

    thanks for sharing ideas Rati…
    I got so impressed by your floting candle decore… I went to buy a urli…couldn’t find one so came home with a clay urli and paintes it on my own… it came out so well… looking lovely , I am so happy now :)

  15. Nandini says:

    Yayy thank you so much for this post :* sorry I haven’t been on FP a lot lately, the new job is madly busy (but fun :) ) I love the urli and the boxes are so pretty! My mom collects such pretty boxes, if you ever travel to Thailand or Myanmar too you’ll find lots of pretty jewellery boxes with enamel and other work on them.
    My parents are here! The apartment here in Blore isn’t too big since only bro and I live here but we might be finally celebrating Diwali this year! Mom usually makes lovely rangolis and we do flower arrangements.

    • Rati says:

      it’s awesome to spend diwali with the family. And now that your mum is there with you, guess you dont have to worry a bit. :)) not travelling to thailand again. :| but yeah myanmmar sounds good. :))

      • Nandini says:

        Yeah that’s true :) she’s making me tiffin for work everyday :D ah, the joys of being pampered with ghar ka khaana! Lolll I forgot abt that fiasco…you should visit Bhutan/Myanmar, mom told me they’re both beautiful places.

    Wow.. now it feels like diwali.. :) I just feel helpless while living in US, no Passion no decoration, crackers or celebrations for any festival! Just Halloween or x mas.. :p but facebuk, imbb n fauxpas remind those beautiful festive seasons again! And this urli sounds great for indoor decoration. As we may not be able to light up diyas n candles because of our superactive lil one, but urli n Halloween lights are great idea for diwali decoration. :) we usually make goddess lakshmi idol from sugarcane n rice in our native place, n then worship it on diwali.. :) but here we’ll make coconut idol.. really excited this time as its first diwali of our baby.. . :) n now we got so many ideas for US friendly diwali.. lol :) m hoping it to be best diwali!
