happy diwali + holiday decor ideas

Today is the festival/holiday of lights, Diwali. Mostly celebrated in Northern India, it is a FUN holiday with candles, twinkling lights and firecrackers. In our casa, Diwali officially marks the start of the holiday season and you know what that means….fairy lights, and holiday decorations are in full swing…

Even if you dont celebrate Diwali why not light a couple of candles in your home tonight? They are supposed to welcome good fortune in your homes and who doesnt love the soft glow of candle lights? Dont have any fancy candle holders at hand? Throw in tea lights in assorted mason jars, water tumblers, tea cups or wine glasses and arrange them on your mantle/dining table/front porch etc.



I love these hanging bubble candle holders (below) from CB2. Arent they festive? I am so getting these for my living room as part of my holiday decor.


How do you decorate for Diwali?

  1. Happy Diwali to you too love!
    I need no reason for candles, I am a self-admitted addict! I light them morning as night, and can’t really relax fully unless I am surrounded by soft glowing light! 🙂

    I adore the candelabra in the very last picture and yes, those ‘bubble’ lights in the tree are fantastic! What a wonderful welcome gesture for a dinner party!

    Big hugs to you.
