There is SO much colour everywhere and the festive spirit abounds! On blogs, in the streets, it’s enough to make you shout! We were traveling last weekend and just got back from a wonderful farm stay. Getting back to the city feels like coming back to a riot!
But it’s been quiet at home as friends and family are still traveling or are busy elsewhere. So here’s a quiet couple of evenings, with candles and soft light. Peace on earth…
We didn’t paint the wall! It’s just the lights…
The carved wood block…
Candle holders in shades of blue
Changed the lights to yellow and it was another sight altogether!
More blue and silver…
A leaf shaped diya I’d found during Diwali earlier this year. Painted the edge blue.
The DIY candle holders.
Linking up to some great blog parties, as always! The Keybunch and Liven Things Up.
In keeping with the enthu at The Keybunch’s Diwali carnival, here’s hoping you folk had a safe and fun Diwali! It’s ending on a very very wet note here in Bengaluru… what rains! Its helped keep the pollution level down though I think, and that’s always good.

Meena’s and Hema’s diyas
At the risk of repeating myself, our festivals give us so many beautiful moments with light. Diyas (lights with oil and a wick) and candles especially.
And of course, you need someone like Chirag to capture them. These are gorgeous Chirag, thanks so much for getting me these.
Love Indian festivals for their aesthetic potential! They offer such an opportunity to make yummy food, riot up the home with flowers and lights. Some pictures from yesterday…
