Ganesh Chaturthi remains one of the year’s most anticipated festivals. Right from the invigorating Nashik dhols to the flavour of decadent modaks, the very thought of the forthcoming celebrations leaves us all thrilled.
While most of us have taken a pledge to celebrate an eco-friendly Ganesh Chaturthi, replete with Ganesh idols crafted from green materials, how about taking a similar route when it comes to decorating our homes? Homemade Ganpati decorations are also a great way to customise your home.
Prep your home for the celebrations this season with our Ganesh Chaturthi decoration checklist featuring an eco-friendly twist.
Energy Efficient Lights
Usher in the warmth of the festivities with an arrangement of energy efficient string lights around your home. These are a greener option as compared to lights, which consume more energy. For a decorative touch, you could opt for string lights in varying shapes and sizes. To amplify the decor, arrange the lights in conjunction with flowy drapes for a dramatic effect.
Festivities are certainly incomplete without a touch of vibrant flowers to light up the ambience. Take the eco-friendly route by choosing artificial flowers over fresh ones. This will prevent the wastage associated with having to change fresh flowers through the 10-day festivities.
Dupattas And Drapes
When it comes to getting the aesthetics right, nothing does the job better than an arrangement of dupattas. This green Ganesh puja decoration idea prevents waste generation since the drapes can be reused the next time. Brighten up the space by opting for vibrant drapes in contrasting tones or choose neutral tones like cream and beige for a subtle look.
Natural Plants Decor
Go green in the true sense this festive season by infusing a natural touch to your décor with plants. Station potted plants around the Ganesh pandal to heighten the visual aesthetics or simply opt for decorative plants encased in glass planters, which can be suspended from the ceiling. Adding plants to your home is also a smart way to fill in the empty spaces around your home, without going overboard.
Water Décor Elements
Introducing décor like tabletop mini fountains and other water décor elements makes any space reverberate with tranquillity, and the same holds true for your home. This addition to your festive décor will help to lend a balanced touch to your space, thanks to the soothing sounds of gently trickling water. Besides, this is one eco-friendly Ganesh Chaturthi decoration element you won’t have to dispose off after use.
One of the easiest ways to lend a traditional, festive touch to your space is by using figurines and décor elements with a rustic touch. Choose artefacts made from earthy materials like brass and copper. You could alternatively opt for figurines and other décor elements made from organic materials like jute and wood. These reusable pieces of décor can be strategically positioned with a hint of warm lighting to subtly highlight them.
