As the festival of lights approaches, billions of families are preparing for it and waiting with anticipation. In addition to having religious significance, Diwali also honors the spirit of joy and kindness that permeates every home. It's important not to lose sight of the festival's significance—the victory of good over evil—as cleaning, buying new clothes, baking treats for friends and family, and decorating the house take place alongside. As the modern world struggles with issues like air pollution and climate change, it should be our goal to make Diwali as sustainable and ecologically friendly as possible. And not just Diwali 2023, but 2024, 2025, and so on.

The celebration of Deepavali or Diwali honors the triumph of virtue over evil. It's a season of warmth and closeness to loved ones. The true essence of Diwali is celebrated when we consider others before ourselves. The “Festival of Lights” is all about relationships, caring, and sharing. This implies that now is also the time to consider the environment. We should thus make every effort to observe Diwali in an environmentally sustainable manner.

Tealights And Dip Bowls

Tealights are a chic, inexpensive way of creating that gorgeous glow and a touch of magic for this festive season as the nights draw in. They radiate a tranquilizing aura, with a warm glow, and flicker of flame. Tealights can be placed on a centerpiece, balcony, or can be kept hanging. They can also successfully illuminate the Diwali special rangoli.

Although there’s always an “aarti ki thaali” bedecked with flowers solely for the purpose of Diwali puja, what if we could ideate a much larger picture? A much larger aarti ki thaali! Yes. We have presented a table, garlanded with flowers, tea lights, and floral dip bowls- a unique set of decor.

Coasters And Votives

Coasters are the most common visual on a dining table. Coasters come in handy for so many occasions- while serving a glass of water, clicking an aesthetic photo of the decor, keeping daily trinkets, or simply styling dinnerware of a similar pattern. The ceramic coasters are a great addition to a pottery collection. They are hand-painted and have a traditional look to them, ideal for Diwali decor.

We have positioned vintage candle holders on round, Mediterranean-patterned coasters, radiating a chic vibe for the much-awaited Diwali party. Coasters may seem tiny and unnecessary but they add value to your decor and save you money by protecting surfaces. Pick one, pick all, you can never have too many coasters.
