Diyas are the traditional and most popularly used decorative element for Diwali. The wavering soft flames of these earthen lamps arranged in different shapes are a sight to behold. From lining them near the walls to placing them inside flower arrangements to painted diya thalis, there are various beautiful options to decorate your home with diyas.

  1. Rangoli

Rangoli or the art of making auspicious drawings with vibrant colours is another inevitable decorative element of Diwali. Apart from the traditional designs, a rangoli can be made creative further by adding diyas and flowers or by incorporating intricate designs and patterns for a contemporary twist.

  1. Flowers

Both colourful and fragrant, flowers also make an inevitable part of Diwali décor. From garlands to flower arrangements on the floor to vases with fresh flower arrangements, there are many vibrant options of floral decorations.

  1. Toran

A toran is considered an auspicious decorative element which also signifies welcoming prosperity into the house. Torans made with marigold flowers and mango leaves are part of the traditional décor, while festive torans made of fabrics, pearls, beads and crafty paper torans are more popular now.

  1. Floating candles

Colourful candles floating on water are sure to add a shimmery charm to the interiors. Add colourful tea candles to a large wide-mouthed vessel or in glass bowls with vibrant flowers arranged between them and place them in the foyer or in the centre of the living room to enhance the festive décor.
