from Diwali to Halloween


Hello my lovelies... So hows the preparations going?? This year... Diwali which is on 26th October, is far too close to Halloween.... so the girlies and I have decided on our Halloween decor!! We spent some time looking through out box of utter rubbish... Then made a mental note of what goes where, and what extras we need to do this week.... *smiles* The joys of decorating....




So since Diwali comes first... and it is the festival of lights.. Here is how my foyer will look...



With orange and white being the main colours this year... (only coz I don't have too much time to prepare for anything else)...




Don't you just love candles?? Don't you??



Diyas and more....


























And finally floating candles.. .... 




Now... This is what we will be doing for Halloween... if our candles survive through Diwali... *smiles*





a few bats on the candles...


And a few spiders on the table... These spiders were from the kiddie animal packs from when Sims was 2 ... *smiles*... Thats a long time ago now... *smiles*



Oh and to top it all... no more floating candles... there now.. have black stones in their base...



And in total... this is how it looks...




So did you like this?? What do you think??

Are you joining my linky party?? open till 5th Nov...

  21. Seriously inspiring photography, and I love love love the theme of Diwali to Halloween, which you captured through candlelight!

    Ironically I just wrote an article on the similarity of the two festivals, given their proximity in 2011. Talks of similarities like yours, plus more (on the food/fashion side too!)
