Five tips to create Inviting home entrances this Diwali


It is all about first impression :) Make your entrance ready to welcome Ma Laxmi , your Family and Friends this Diwali.

Here are the five ways you can make your house entrance look inviting this Diwali.

Diwali

1. Rangoli : Rangoli is must for Diwali. Be ready to make great impact at the entrance by creating Rangoli. Try to create something unique this year. You can choose to make rangoli using powdered colors available in the market , using colored chalks, flowers or make unique rangoli using pulses and grains. 

Once I created rangoli using colored side walk chalk when I did not have any colors available. So start thinking how you want create rangoli this Diwali.

2. Lightings: Diwali is a festival of light, so can't do without it. Diyas, candles bring it all out. Hang lanterns by your front porch or on the branches of tree in your aangan.... you can choose beautiful earthen terracotta lanterns, Moroccans, or modern depend on your choice. They will look great by themselves during the day and you can put diya or candle inside at the night to add in more glamor.

You can also create your own DIY lantern using mason jars, baby food jars... here I have a lantern made of baby food jars with tea lights on porch railings...

3. Flowers : Flowers are must in Indian festivals and Pooja. Place Uruli filled of floating by front door or on the the porch...it will sure add traditional touch to your decor. You can choose uruli made of brass ,concrete, terracotta, copper. If you do not have uruli you can even use any brass/pital/copper container or big glass bowl in your kitchen, floating flowers always looks beautiful and who knows may be your different container will create unique arrangement.

4. Toran : Hang Toran at your Entrance....you can choose embroideried, beads, flowers toran. At my parents house it's a tradition to hang Aasopalav tree leaves toran every Diwali.

one can also hang beads, kutchi hand made hanging mobiles on both side of door..

5. Serene corner : create a corner with serene inviting vignette on the porch or by your front door or place which is you see as soon as you enter from front door. You can group few potted plants, flowers. Here I have used Budhha statue to add more serenty. You can also use Ganesha or Ma Laxmi statue, more appropriate for the festival. Add few candles or Diya at night to add Diwali sparkle.
