You cannot think of decorating your home without fresh and/or artificial decorative flowers on Diwali.

If you are looking for ways to give this flower fresh look to your guest room, try adding vibrant flowers in a transparent jar or cylindrical glass.

Even stencils are available in the market, which you can use to make color rangoli instead of stickers. You can place earthen diyas in between your rangoli to make it gleam more in the night.
