Diwali Home Decoration Tips
My home building all lighted up!

1. Entrance Gate
According to Hindu Mythology, it is believed that on this auspicious night, Goddess Lakshmi arrives at the door and bestows upon her devotees wealth and prosperity. And therefore, on the eve of Diwali, people make sure that their entrance gate or the front door looks very inviting.
And since everyone lines up the led bulbs over the main door/ front gate, there isn’t a reason why you shouldn’t do that. But that apart, you can adorn these gates/ doors with festoons (bandhanwar) or marigold garlands too. And yes, don’t forget to glue the holy impressions of Goddess Laxmi's feet on the threshold.
Gold metallic leaves, rice rangoli, flowers and diyas make up this Diwali decor.

2. Foyer / Space near the entrance
It doesn't matter whether the space near your entrance narrows into a passage or opens up seamlessly to join the foyer space. A Rangoli/ Alpana can be drawn anywhere. Decide a shape, and then fill in right colors in the Rangoli. Choice of a proper color combo would support your ethnic decor endeavors.
If you have side tables or shelves in the area, decorate them with shallow basins filled with floating candles or use decorative lanterns. You may purchase several variants of one lantern or buy multiple lanterns if you want.
Living in a duplex apartment? You need to take care of the staircase then. Simply wound the series bulb around the balusters and place a pair of diyas on every step. And if you can, glue the sticker footprints of the Goddess on every step.
Around the diyas, you can do small rangoli patterns and fill them up with finely shredded marigold petals.
4. Living Room
Living Room can be dressed to look its best and all eyes would trace the coffee table if it is loaded with the best Diwali decor accents. Display a collage of floating candles, metallic diyas, one or more lanterns and flower vases..
Change the cushion covers and the curtains. Jazz up your decor theme for a day with brightly sequined cushions and throws created out of old silk sarees or dupattas.
5. Pooja Room
After trailing through various rooms, Goddess Lakshmi finally arrives here. So, how can you make sure that your endeavors would finally make her happy?
Light up the room with candles, diyas and lanterns. Spruce up the walls with fancy wall-art or paper-crafts representing the Goddess or "Swastika". And above all, the Pooja Mandir should be decorated to perfection. Weave a traditional bandhanwar around the Mandir dwar, place a bowl of fresh flowers and a tray of diyas. Make sure you have the floating candles too. The aroma would keep the entire aura mesmerized!
Well, now once you are all set, invite your guests to show around your Diwali decor endeavors and quietly wait for the Goddess to arrive!
