1. Floral arrangements - To achieve the perfect festive look for your home always go for flowers. Flowers give a lot of options to play around with but keep the core design theme grounded in traditionalism. Floral décor also creates a certain mood and a perfect setting for spending good times with family and friends and making memories. While Marigold remains the main choice, you can pair it up with lilies and roses to add some flavour. Rangoli’s can be another option, where you can use flowers instead of colours but if you want a neat and fuss-free décor, then you can also skip this. The best part is, that you will still have a variety of options. (Unsplash/Suchandra Roy Chowdhury) expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout

2. Accentuate colours with lights - Festive decoration and lights are synonymous, not just in India but all around the world.  The floral arrangements can be further accentuated by the placement of diyas. While led strips and artificial diyas will also do, a natural earthen lamp makes a great pair with flowers. The use of diyas and candles accompanied with flower highlights in certain areas within the house adds warmth to the entire atmosphere. Besides, diyas can be placed in certain corners to create a subtle glow. (Photo: Raajessh Kashyap/HT) expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout

3. Setting up the special areas - This festive season is a great opportunity to meet, reunite and celebrate with your dear ones. You can make the best out of it by setting up special areas where you can entertain your guests and family. Table setting is an important part of the festive décor since any celebration is incomplete without a sumptuous feast. You can create an elegant table setting by using well-polished silver wares. This adds a lot of vibrance to the place where everyone gathers to spend quality time. For the table, you can get coloured glass with prints to add a splash of colour to the whole dining experience. You can use table linens that reflect the festive fervour. Or, you can get some really beautiful table runners and table napkins with floral designs.(https://in.pinterest.com/) expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout

4. Create spaces to make memories - The general placements of the furniture can also be played around with to create cosy comfy corners to share some laughs during the festive celebrations. To add more depth and personal touch to the décor, you can use unconventional art. Instead of using mass-produced items, it can be a piece of memory picked up during a holiday, or anything that resonates with you and your environment. (Kevin Malik) expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout
