The colors and lights of Diwali

Hope all of you had a happy and safe Diwali!

For us it was a fun filled, sweet filled, color filled and lights filled Diwali. Here are some pictures of Diwali at home.

Preparations during the day.


Rangoli without any artificial colors

Floating candles and petals in a silver plate




 Floating flowers and candle in a brass vessel


Finally with lights.


The lamps flanking the floating candles are the tealight holders we made last week.


So, that was our Diwali. How was yours?

I'll link my rangoli to PPF on Friday. See you there.

    1. Thanks Gloria! You are sure to find a rangoli outside most Indian homes during Diwali. And lamps all over the place.
