The grand Diwali celebrations are already knocking on our doors and there is much to look forward to, as we get together with friends and family.
Whether you are looking to host a Diwali house party or hitting the refresh button to declutter your home before the auspicious celebrations, we’ve got some help for you.
Here are 4 quick tips to get your home ready for this Diwali.
1. Time to get sorted
Decluttering your home helps create a positive environment and makes you feel better mentally. Before you hit the celebrations in full-swing, it might be a good idea to clean up the house and make everything spick and span.
Here’s a guided video to help you get started in an organized manner and wrap up successfully with enough time on your hands.
2. List out the decorations
After the declutter, it is time for the Diwali decorations. Traditionally, this auspicious occasion celebrates the return of Prince Rama to Ayodhya after completing his 14 years in exile.
The conventional décor options are lights, diyas, rangolis, and streamers.
Make a list of the decorations you will need for your home during Diwali and get shopping!
3. Work with the family
Once the place is organized and the decorations have arrived, it is time to divide the work within the family and start making your home ready for Diwali. From lighting diyas to giving the final finishing touches to the Rangoli, everything needs to be done to perfection.
Help your family pick up tasks one by one and get as many people involved as possible to spend some quality pre-festive time together.
4. Take care of all fire hazards
If you are going with traditional diyas, ensure that you have considered all possible fire hazards and neutralized them. Check out curtain lengths, and make sure you do not light diyas under anything that is flammable.
The best places for diyas are balconies, terraces, and other open areas.
