Diwali Preparations

Hello! Are your Diwali preparations on? So, what did you shop for and what’s on the menu? For me, the weekend was hectic with last minute cleaning and shopping. In spite of rains trying to dampen the festive spirits, I went out shopping for some Diyas and candles inspired by your blogs and ideas….and ended up buying much more. Brought some colored rangoli powder, stick-on rangoli, candles, diyas, shimmering stones to do up the Diyas…..I stopped myself before going overboard :).

That sums my weekend Diwali Preparations…linking this to Patty’s Weekend Wrap Up. Looking forward for your Diwali Dhamaka Moments.

Check out these amazing brass diyas, just so perfect for the festivities.
