Karwa Chauth thali is the most important part of the ritual. Spend some time decorating it this year to let that festive feeling sink in. Here are 5 Karwa Chauth thali decoration ideas that are bound to shine bright. Thank us later!

Karwa Chauth Thali
  • Go the traditional way
  • Sometimes the best way to go about following rituals is the traditional way. Start by taking a steel or brass round thali as the base. Follow it up by decorating the thali with a red/maroon coloured fabric. The reason why the colour red is important is because it symbolises the bond of marriage. Make a little space in the thali for earthen diyas and a steel/earthen pot to carry water. Sprinkle some vermillion and rice along with fresh flowers to make creative borders, and there you go. Your Karwa Chauth thali decoration is done. 

  • Use the combination of red & gold
  • All the necessary thali essentials can follow the colours red and golden. Since red signifies the bond of marriage and golden is the epitome of festivities, you can never go wrong with this Karwa Chauth thali decoration idea. 

  • Go all gold 
  • If you happen to be a fan of luxurious celebrations, we’ve got the perfect Karwa Chauth thali decoration idea for you. Make a bold statement with all gold accents in your Puja thali this Karwa Chauth. From the karwa (earthen pot) to the diyas you’ll light, make it all gleam in gold. 

  • Minimalistic Magic
  • Minimal is the new modern. This recent decor trend is blowing the roof off, making us realize that less is more. If you happen to be a fan of this trend, keep up to follow the same through your rituals as well. Start by choosing a sleek and modern thali with clean lines. Use a plain, solid-colored cloth as a base, such as white or cream, and arrange minimalist candle holders or tealight candles on the thali. Use a simple, unadorned karwa in the center and conclude it by adding fresh/artificial rose/marigold flowers for a subtle touch of color.

  • Fun with flowers
  • If you want to go rustic this festive season, choose this idea for a DIY Karwa Chauth thali decoration. Take a wooden thali or base to capture the DIY aesthetic and cover it with artificial flower petals in vibrant colours. Opt for earthen diyas and paint them in tones of brown, followed by placing a hand-painted karwa in the center. Add a couple of fresh leaves and flowers to the mix and your DIY Karwa Chauth thali is ready.
