We shall start with Rangoli as most of us do that whether it’s outside of house or inside.   

Here is simple rangoli and a diya on centre, on entrance.

Floating Candles arrangement is very attractive and inexpensive idea and it’s looks very pretty.  Keep it any where around the house and made the area looks special.  You can match the candle’s shape, colour with your theme.

A simple floating candles arrangement, used here fresh flower petals with few pebbles and candles of different colours.

Or go little detailed and do this decoration with fresh flowers.  Fresh flowers arrange on top of water with just one candle in the centre, looks pretty isn’t it?

Oh you notice the change of candle?   That’s cause the candle was sinking so I replaced it with diya/oil lamp and I think this looks much better.

Show you guys dinning table decoration.   You can keep fresh flowers for a simple and elegant look and that’s bring freshness or go little elaborate like the below picture.

You can use a table runner, if you don’t have one at hand it’s fine.  Use your dupatta or sari ( I am not responsible if you end up having any strain on your favourite saree or dupatta Smile )  so be careful while serving or eating.    This is a saree in light cream colour with flowers petals along a centre piece arrangement.  A light colour table runner is used cause the backdrop wall is dark colour of red.  Keep few candles in dinning table too if you have the space.
