And now for a twelve month wait.

I hope each of you had the loveliest Diwali ever...lots of diyas & candles, tons of mithai & ofcourse your family & friends all around you. 

After a longish weekend, I am back with some glimpses of Diwali at my home. 


White Gerberas, strings of tuberoses hugging my tiny red cage-lanterns, diyas and another red glass lantern.
These made our Diwali.






A little  more red, a little more white & a little more glow!




Ofcourse the food had to be served on red plates :)


Flower Rangoli, pretty little somethings floating in the urli, lots of conch shaped diyas and terracotta lanterns adorned our entrance


I couldn't have left the tealights out of my favorite festival.


And now for a twelve month wait...not fair:(

I am linking this to Patty's Weekend party, Sharon & Rekha's November fest & Emreen's Festival time. Do check out their lovely blogs for lots of tabletop inspiration.
