Diwali, the festival of light, is one of the most joyful celebrations of India, which means that this is also the time to invite friends and family over to your home for a big bash that includes a delicious, warm spread and some fun activities to go with.
Keeping the obvious aside, Diwali is also that occasion where many tend to go all out and upgrade the home décor just to get in the festive mood. However, this year, with most of us dwelling in the whole ‘working from home’ chaos, our calendars might not allow us to spend enough time to plan out the details.
Worry not! We are here to help you consider a few simple Diwali decoration ideas for your home that is sure to save your day.
Green Diwali: This is for all those who hate firecrackers and would rather enjoy a peaceful time at home. Give your living room an earthy and eco-friendly Diwali twist – add plants or use fake shrubs to your décor to give it a fresh, green look. You can take the help of online videos to get more Diwali craft ideas to make your interior look green and classy.
Since your living room will be the most visited place during Diwali indulge with more creative ways to deck up that room. Make sure that the guest bathroom is clean and smelling fresh too. Keep different Diwali activities ready for guests to be entertained. If your family or relatives have kids coming over, make sure you have thought of some Diwali activities or Diwali craft ideas for kids that will keep them busy.
Given the time we are living in currently, it may not be the right thing to celebrate the festival in large groups but this Diwali, it is important for us to make everyone around us happy and feel good, for which, making the society complex look dazzling is the only thing we can safely do.
Get all the residents together for a discussion, of course, virtually, on how to go about making every nook and corner of the resident complex look and feel festive. Remember, when you do set out to decorate your complex do not forget to maintain 6 feet distance from one another.
Here’s how you can prep your society this year:
Don’t think only about decorating just your home. Get some lighting work for your apartment complex too. You can play around with fairy lights and give a quick Diwali makeover to your complex by decorating the gate, garden area, doorways and trees. Traditional flowers such as marigold, rose and mogra works best as decorative items too.
Note: Always wear mask and maintain at least 6 feet distance while doing the above.
While decorating your home makes for the most exciting part of Diwali, don’t forget to make it special for your neighbours too. Break the ice by greeting them with some DIY Diwali gifts like greeting cards made of recycled paper, tealight holders made of pistachio shells, homemade candles and so on. DIY gifts always qualify for a thoughtful present.
You can also take photographs of your beautifully lit and decorated apartment complex and share it your neighbours; you can also make use of NoBrokerHood’s Chats and Forum feature and share the images virtually without disclosing your number.
