Diwali may call out for redesigning, revamping, and recreating your home. However, a Diwali party calls for more.

Traditional or Contemporary, what’s your pick? If antiques, heritage textile furnishings and vintage furniture is what you love, opt for the traditional home décor styles. On the other hand, if minimalistic home décor elements are what you admire, the modern design is just for you. Based on the style you choose, get creative with your seating arrangements. Add a mix of sofas, chairs, bean bags and rugs to create a colourful and stylish ambience for the evening.

From decoration to table setting and a scrumptious meal to some nice music, enliven your Diwali party with Ciceroni’s best Diwali party home décor ideas.

1. Floral Decor

Florals never go out of style. Show off your creative skills by adding real flowers to that rustic water can you have not used for ages, or add some rose petals to your tea cup to create tea cup vases for your centre table. Opt for floral rangoli to give your entrance an Indian festive touch. If you are not keen on using real flowers, you could use floral wall coverings, plates, table linens and furnishings to create an elegant and classy décor.

Chandni Patel and Sagar Shah, Founders of Kankoo Thaapa – a wedding and event design company, share their love for floral décor and add “Decoration with flowers like Desi Gulab, Damro, Gota and Champa are pleasing to the eyes. Fill up the terracotta, brass or copper vessels with flowers like Baby’s Breath, Gypsophila and Rajnigandha to spice up your balcony with heady fragrance.”



2. Lights

Be it the colourful fairy lights, scented candles or the traditional diyas; don’t miss out on lights this Diwali! Wrap your existing chandeliers and planters with yards of small fairy lights to create a warm and magical lighting centrepiece. Create personalized origami lanterns or candle chandeliers and hang them from the ceiling to illuminate the hall way. If you have a garden, light it up with some kerosene lanterns and floating candles.

According to team Kankoo Thaapa, Corner lights and table lamps can be magical in creating cosy spaces within the house.
