Decoration with diyas
Diyas are one of the widely known essentials of Diwali. As per a famous myth in Hindu mythology, residents of Ayodhyaa lighted up thousands of diyas around their houses and at every nook and corner of the kingdom to welcome Lord Rama and his consort Sita whom he rescued from the trap of Ravana. Lighting diyas on the day of Diwali symbolizes the victory of good over evil. With its significance, beautifying home and even workplace with the rows of diyas has come a long way in recent times.
Traditionally, the earthen lamps are found in the colour brown that use cotton wick and oil or ghee to sparkle homes on Deepawali. However, over the course of time, the traditional Diwali Diyas have changed into something which can aptly be said as an artwork. At the present time, there are different types of earthen lamps being made and sold in the marketplace. They are accessible in different styles, colours and sizes.
How can you decorate your home with diya?
You can buy a diya platter that works best for puja or centerpieces. Put some earthen lamps in a patterned way and light them one after another. It would be one of the heartwarming diya settings. Arrange diyas with flowers for a unique yet divine look of your puja room.
Put diyas in a pot of water with rose petals at your entrance or in the center of your home. This will give your dwelling an exotic look with sweet aroma all around.
Rangoli- designs & patterns
Besides diyas, another important decoration you should not miss on Deepawali is the rangoli. It is one of the most elaborate artworks that feature various themes and designs. Often coloured powder and other embellishments are used to make this artwork. From simple to most elaborate patterns, rangoli designs come in various themes, colours and sizes.
You can use coloured rice and flower petals too. Adorn rangoli with row of lamps and add to your décor.
Lights and lanterns
By using lamps and lanterns you can add to your home’s décor. If you are someone who knows how to create lantern, definitely you’re gonna make your home dazzle! Use different shades and colour to make them look more elegant yet beautiful.
During diwali, the source of light isn’t just limited to diyas or lanterns but candles too. Nowadays, there are available various types of candles from floating to scented ones. They are mostly used for floor decoration. Either put them along with flowers in a water filled pot or arrange in your living place, you’ll get the most amazing décor with candles on Diwali.
For a number of festivals celebrated in India, the most popular ingredient of decoration includes flowers. Decorate your home using the flowers of marigold or roses that are known for their exotic aroma. Pep up your entrance, staircase and even bedroom with flowers and see the festivity surrounding your home!
