#EDDiwaliSpecial: 15 unusual diyas for an artistic glow

by Nupur Ashok Sarvaiya Oct 21, 2016

Palpable excitement of revamping our abode fills the air as we prepare our space to look their glamorous best in Diwali. Glam up as you bring the room to life: add the right finishing touches with a medley of large and small accents. The ideal way to render a mesmerising impact is with unusual diyas. Rooted in tradition, decorating with diyas are the perfect concoctions to usher in a glitzy Festival of Lights.

Other than the obvious ways, these glow givers can be propped on coffee and dining tables as centre pieces or stacked for a mini installation. For the romantics, we suggest you to try a “diya-light” dinner to ring in the celebrations! From silver diyas adorned with Gods and Godesses to humungous options that can be filled up with flowers or pebbles and chocolate lanterns, discover the delight of shopping, sprucing and spreading the festive spirit with our shortlist of decorative lights.

Get, set, decorate!
