You've already seen Abha's Lotus themed Diwali decor... The year before that, Abha had a ocean themed diwali.... I can't wait to see what she's planned for this year!! *smiles*
Last year when I was planning the Diwali decorations my 3 year old asked me if we could have a ocean themed diwali (he loves the ocean) and I was like why not. Of course everybody who visited us was stunned with the idea :-)
Living room: Since I couldn’t find any ocean themed cushion covers, I got some made with ocean animal motifs. Having a furnishings business helps :-) We put together candles and shells from our travels to create a candlescape.
Rangoli: I used glass paints to paint koi fishes on a tile and that became the focus point of our ‘rangoli’ which we created using karwas (small earthenware pots with cutwork).
Garden and Lighting: This was to be the focus area so Aryan and I picked up garden stakes and planters to go with the theme. We have windows along the entrance porch which Aryan decorated with ocean theme related stickers and foam cutouts – this was my favorite! And finally the lighting! We put it up like a wave along the garden wall to give an ocean effect!
