As an Indian family living in London we always miss the same festive vibe that we experienced back home in India. To begin with, Diwali is a working day in the UK and it is like any other day. But I don’t want it to be that way. Every year I try and make an extra effort to create a special day for family. As a mother I have the added responsibility to pass on traditions to the next generation.
In the run up to Diwali I have a few things in mind like – What should be the menu and How can I put up Diwali décor at home? Every year I had to make do with the little Indian stuff I have in my personal collection but thanks to some lovely gifts from India Circus I can do a lot more with my Diwali décor. Indian Circus by Krsna Mehta make contemporary & chic products, home decor and personal accessories. The quirky and sophisticated décor designs will add a dash of Indianess to your interiors. The products are easy to order online and shipped worldwide.
India Circus has a lot to offer from home décor to personal accessories and even apparel. The designs are aimed to revive Indian craft and textiles into everyday contemporary products. The vibrant coloured home accessories add a layer of brightness to your interiors and an exquisite charm to your home.
India Circus sent me a few things and I have tried to create two beautiful settings using their products and some from my home décor collection. I hope you like it.
The Gala Family Dinner Table
Eating the grand Diwali feast after the main ceremonies and pooja was the highlight of my day as a kid. Even though I can’t really replicate the grandness of the Diwali feast I experience back home in India but I can at least recreate a little glimpse of it. Again, I have used products from India Circus and from my own collection to create this beautiful table setting.
Your Cosy Corner
Sitting on the sofa surrounded by comfy cushions, sipping hot chai and skimming through pages of my favourite fashion magazine is my way of relaxing at home. Unfortunately I don’t get to do this very often and I am sure most of you are in the same boat. But when we do get a moment, let’s try and make it special, more so on festivals when you are at home with friends and family. So here’s how I created my cosy corner.
