When Is Ganesh Chaturthi In 2021?
The celebrations for Ganesh Chaturthi will begin on 10th September and come to an end on 21st September. It is believed that praying to Lord Ganesh will eradicate all obstacles from one's life and bring peace and harmony in return. The idol of Lord Ganesha is hosted for ten days in one's home, and on Anant Chaturdashi, he is bid farewell by immersing the idol in a water body and asking him to return next year.
Simple Ways To Decorate Home This Ganesh Chaturthi
1. Decorating with colourful flowers
Flowers play an important role in every pooja, and Ganesh Chaturthi is no exception. Use flowers to decorate more than the pooja thali and decorate your prayer room in colorful flower garlands. You can also place your flower pots in the pooja area to add greenery and a pop of natural colours. Make a flower toran or place flowers in the water. There is so much you can do with just a bunch of colorful flowers.
2. Go crazy with lights!
Illuminate your home with bright lamps and string lights. Use candles or diyas near the chowki to keep the room bright and sparkly. Decorate your pooja room with colourful LED lights to amp up the feeling of festivity and joy. You can also use scented candles and incense burners to fill the room with a sweet aroma.
3. Origami decoration
If you are going the eco-friendly route this Ganpati Mahotsav (as you should), why not bring it to the next level with eco-friendly decorations? With so many tutorials online, you can easily make origami decorations with colourful paper, and the best part is that you can reuse these decorations again and again. No waste whatsoever! If you don't trust yourself with a sheet of paper and some complicated folding, do not fret as colourful origami decorations are easy to find online. Paper lanterns are also a great option to pair with origami decorations.
4. Don't forget to decorate the walls
Yes, you heard that right! Imagine decorating the mandap beautifully, but the background is just a boring white wall - can't be us! We always make sure to decorate the walls with as much care as we decorate the rest of the pooja area. If your foreground is already very colourful, add some sparkly fabric behind it to make a solid yet vibrant background. You can also add curtain lights to cover the area and light up the room simultaneously.
No pooja is complete without a colorful Rangoli. Create a small and easy to make Rangoli with the little ones, or make a big intricate one - the choice is yours. You can use herbal colors or flowers to make your Rangoli eco-friendly and non-toxic. Add diyas to make the color pop and look beautiful even at nighttime.
