Festive season in India is here! It brings with itself delicious foods, decorations, new clothes, family get-togethers and lots of fun. The festival season is on in full swing and especially the most celebrated ‘Diwali’ just a few days away. One thing people often struggle with is decoration. It is often expensive to hire a professional decorator and the results might end up being unsatisfactory. So, at this point doing the decoration and planning work yourself is pretty much the only option remaining.
To assist you with your festive home decoration and to give you new ideas for the same, we bring to you 6 easy and simple festival flower decoration ideas for your home:
Play Around With Origami
Now, the title did say “festival flower decoration ideas at home” but there’s so much more to that! Origami is the art of folding paper into decorative shapes and figures and guess what? You can make flowers of different colors and shapes using origami. Making origami for decoration requires a collective effort considering the large volume of paper flowers needed to be made. Doing this will be a good occasion to make all family members work together instead of staying on their mobile phones. Not to mention how good an exercise this can be for the young ones at home, so this Diwali decorate your house with origami “flowers”
Flower Rangoli Design
A simple rangoli design always elevates the decoration of the place. Not to mention the religious and spiritual significance making a rangoli holds- a rangoli represents the happiness, positivity and liveliness of a household, and is intended to welcome Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and good luck. Even if you cannot make a rangoli with powder colors there’s still some rangoli for you! This Diwali welcome goddess Lakshmi with a rangoli made with flowers! You’ll still have to put effort into the design but now you won’t have to struggle with powdered chalk and all the mess it creates. Making a flower rangoli is also a good alternative for people with dust allergies.
Clay Pots are decorative too!
This is a rather simple and trending home decoration for festive occasions. Take clay pots of different sizes, fill them up to the brim with flowers or petals- preferably marigold flower petals and place the pots at random places in your house. Marigold flowers are used in religious ceremonies and have a very pleasant smell that creates a festive environment at home.
Nothing like as a garland
We have been seeing flower garlands and mango leaves being hung at homes during festivals since our childhoods. Some things cannot and should not be changed- so, along with some new decoration ideas, give your house the traditional decoration of flower garlands. It is a very easy decoration and a lifesaver for people who even on festivals do not have enough time for the preparations.
A Beautiful Floral Basket
This is a rather cliché and usual decoration but hey you can give it your own festive twist. Take a basket and fill it with all sorts of flowers- whichever you want. An added decoration can be wrapping fairy lights around the basket and placing it in the perfect spot.
A Floral Chandelier
This is another unique home decoration idea. A chandelier is something that denotes royalty and what’s better and innovative than having a floral chandelier at your home. If you have high ceilings this is the perfect item for decorating them.
These were some new and trending festival flower decoration ideas for your home. Flowers are a symbol of strength, purity, and generosity and holds a special significance in Hinduism. Flowers are also considered to be a manifestation of devotional emotion “Aastha” and offering of flowers for pooja is a prayer that the deity grants us good health, wealth and prosperity. All these religious symbolisms make the practice of decorating your home with flowers during festivals much more meaningful. So, this festive season make sure to give your home a decoration that is centered among flowers! We at Myla wish you a very happy and safe Dhanteras, Diwali and all the numerous festivals & occasions on our way!
