Décor Duds

  •  Don’t spend a large amount of money redoing your house every year during the festival. It’s a waste of time, money and effort.
     
  •  Create a rangoli design that’s smaller than the entrance of your house so that it’s not trod upon.
     
  •  Don’t over-do the lights or your house will look tacky.
     
  •  Don’t use a lot of flowers for your Diwali décor. They only look good for the first few hours, after which they wither and dry up.
     
  •  Be careful when you light diyas or candles inside your house, especially around children. Place them in nooks and corners where your children can’t reach.

Décor tips
You don’t have to undergo a full-scale renovation to make your house look beautiful for Diwali. Here are a few easy tips to dress up your home without emptying out your pockets:

Diyas: Buy diyas in different shapes and colours. You could also try floating candles.

Dupattas: Plain dupattas in different colours is another pocket friendly alternative. You can use four or five in various colours in place of your curtains.

Chuck out: Get rid of useless items and de-clutter your home to make it look more festive.

Cushion up: Cushions are convenient, can be used through the year and add a zing to your home décor.

Handicrafts: Woven, bright Indian handicrafts with mirror work can give your home an ethnic look.

Shuffle: If you don’t want to spend on new furniture, move around the items you already have.

Lantern: Make your own so that it’s unique. You can hang one in a corner of every room.

Select Sun sign:
 
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Consistent hard work that you had put in earlier will get you what you want. Benefits through government are indicated. A sincere approach in life always gets rewarded. You must not feel that you get little, and late, in comparison to the hard work you put in. Life has its own pattern. A new association with a person of the opposite sex overwhelms you and you can hardly concentrate on work and other things that are important for you.
