- Interior Floral Arrangements
Decorating the interior of the house on Diwali is equally important. This is where your guests and relatives gather for sweets and celebrations. Order a big flower bouquet and four small-sized bouquets for the corners. Order a combination of flowers like hydrangeas, roses of different colors other than red, tulips, and lilies. Install the big one as the centerpiece of your living room and arrange the small bouquets in small tables at the corners for a flowery ambiance. This will be a lovely greeting sight for your guests and a favorite spot to take selfies for the children with their siblings and cousins.
- Floating Floral Decorations
This is an alternative to the above-mentioned decoration. Instead of ordering flower bouquets arrange a floating Diwali flower decoration. Take a mid-sized ornamental vessel preferably brass or copper, fill it with water, and put your favorite flowers in it. Add floating candles to it and put the vessel in the center of the living room. Petals and floating candles will add and enhance the visual appeal of the Diwali decorations.
- Flowers for Staircases and Railings
Staircases and railings are perfect placements for flower decorations. Place flower pots on the steps leading to your home. Light earthen diyas on both sides of the flower pots. Wrap the garlands made of flowers like marigolds, daisies, or roses on the railings along with the strings of colorful lights. Even before reaching your home, guests will be amazed by the quality of decorations done on staircases and railings.
- Decorate Your Pooja Place
On Diwali, we light lamps and offer prayers to Goddess Laxmi for ongoing prosperity. A good Diwali flower decoration idea is to spruce up your pooja place with a special emphasis on flowers. Hang garlands around the pooja room. Cover the wall behind the idols with different flowers in auspicious patterns like Om and Swastik signs. Fill your pooja thali with marigolds and roses and place some flowers at the Goddess’s feet as a final touch.
- Flowers and Curtains
You can also decorate curtains with flowers for a unique look. Drape garlands of flowers on the edges of the curtains. You can also put your curtains to the sides and decorate the flowers on the curtain tie-backs. Make or order garlands of flowers matching the colors of your drapes and curtains.

Why not combine flowers with other items for a fun theme this Diwali? Add bright colored ribbons to the flower decorations inside and outside the house. Also, get some multi-colored balloons and tie flower garlands to their strings and let them float from the ceiling. Use different lengths of garlands for an asymmetric look. This will give a nice touch to your fun decorative theme this Diwali.
