26 Items You Need To Buy To Spruce Up Your Home And Ensure It's Diwali-Ready

A successful party shadows the efforts that have gone on BTS to make it materialise. But in reality, party-planning can be every bit stressful and super-hectic, might we add. With Diwali fast-approaching, a lot of us are planning soirées and card parties for our friends and families, our diaries filling up quick.

If you're entertaining this season, we ease your stress by giving you simple ideas to spruce your home up, making it party-ready.

From small touches like lamps and candles to the plates you will be serving those mithais in, we have done the heavy lifting, so all you need to do is take your pick and swipe.

Flowers

Flowers are a sure-fire way to add a spritz of colour, freshness, and life into a space. While fresh flowers are always an option, we like the concept of preserved flowers, especially if you are someone that entertains a lot. Champs Fleur is giving us fresh flowers from across the globe that have undergone a preservation process to ensure that they last longer than fresh flowers.

Aromatherapy Diffusers

One way to ensure that the room is inviting is for it to smell so. Lay out diffusers (electric or sticks) that will fill the air with aromatic essence. Best part? You don't have to light these, making it perfectly safe at home, and around children and guests.

The best kind of welcomes involves the perfect cocktail. If you are in the party spirit and will be serving champagne, serve the bubbly in snazzy flutes. If your get-together has a more traditional setting, then you can serve some chai in gorgeous teacups.

Serving Platters

When laying out a spread of snacks to accompany the drinks, make sure your serving plates are as delicious as the food on it. Serve an array of non-fussy mithais such as pedas and kachoris, or go old-school with a cheese platter and finger sandwiches.
