Flowers for Interior Decor
No festival is complete without some home decor.

An essential part of Diwali, Rangoli represents strength and generosity. It is also known to bring good luck. Rangolis are usually drawn on the ground or sidewalk in front of the house with coloured sand, rice and even flower petals.
If you want to add a floral element to the Rangoli, you could use fresh roses, orchids, and marigolds. Play around with colours like red, orange and yellow to create a contrast of bright and pleasant colours that blend brightly into the theme of this festival. Line them up in an orderly fashion for a neat Rangoli.
2. Table Ornaments
A floral centrepiece can easily give your dining room more life and energise your guests.
You could buy a readymade flower box or simply make your own flower bowls with colours like red, orange, bright pink and yellow. These colours represent love, strength, courage and respect.
Use a mixture of flowers with small and big petals to avoid overcrowding your flower bowl. You could play around with a combination of sunflowers and baby's breath or carnations and roses.
3. Wall Decorations
You could decorate your home with colourful flower garlands as well. Traditionally, these garlands are made with marigolds, but you could also make your own or find garlands with peonies, carnations and roses.
