diwali celebration

Diwali is just around the corner, and preparations for it have probably begun at your home. One has to clean up every nook and corner of the house, go out shopping for new clothes (yay!), invite guests and relatives to stay for the long weekend, prepare a bevy of yummy traditional sweets, arrange for puja materials, start on the rangoli… the list just goes on and on. No doubt, though, this time, is incredibly memorable and fun.

But with all this hubbub, we tend to forget one thing. Sure, it is imperative to get the house looking nice and shiny with decorations and all the furniture arranged neatly, however, we shouldn’t forget about the garden! After all, it is a part of our house, and so much effort has gone into making it full of life. Now is the time to decorate it and give it life.

2) Add some more outdoor decorative plants to the garden like a Ficus Prestige, a Stromanthe Tristar, succulents like Haworthia Turgid or the ever popular Dracaena Colorama Red. These are just the easiest ways to add some beauty to the garden.

3) Hanging pots are a brilliant way to add some elevation to your garden, and they are also very useful when you want to hang up your lights. Get some in different colors, and you’ve got yourself a pretty vibrant garden!

5) On the other hand, if you want pots for inside your house, then instead of metallic, you could probably try out decorative ceramic pots. They come in different colors or come with intricate designs on the surface. Try them out for an interesting twist on the everyday Diwali decorations.
