Guest post for Blogadda : This Diwali, dress up your home.

The other day I got a mail from Blogadda asking me if I had anything special in mind for the festival season and If I'd be interested in writing a guest post for their readers. 

Guest post huh? Guest post YA YA YA!

Here is a sneak peek of what is in store for you there.


"I love this part of the year. The weather is just beautiful. My tiny balcony garden is bursting with golden yellow marigolds. And Diwali is just round the corner (it is undoubtedly my favourite festival).

The warm glow of diyas, invigorating fragrance of gainda & mogra, muted golds & deep reds, hot gulab jamuns & calorie laden cashew nuts and the gorgeous plates that my grandmother so lovingly gifted me years back.

Candles, flowers, colours, food & china. My Diwali is always made up of these. Isn't yours too?

I have always believed that dressing up the home for festivals doesn't necessarily mean burning a hole in one's pocket. But it sure does require tons of creativity and that is exactly what we are going to talk about today. I lurve how each of the five Diwali elements can be tinkered around with and used innovatively to create gorgeous centrepieces that will definitely make one house proud and the house oh-so-pretty!"

Read the rest of the post here.

A Big thanks to Harish & the Blogadda team for giving me the chance to connect with their readers. I had a lot of fun putting it together.

Let the festivities begin!
