Getting ready for Deepawali

On November 5th, there is a major festival for all Indians called Deepawali. It is the most celebrated festival in India and among Indians living abroad. The name of this festival translates to "festival of lights". Celebrating Deepawali for Hindus is as important as celebrating Christmas for Christians. 


The festival Deepawali universally signifies the renewal of life. The festival ends with the most brilliant fireworks all over India, illuminating the night skies.

I started decorating my house for Deepawali. 















For more memorable centerpieces, tablescapes, and recipes (including gluten free recipes), please check out my book, Entertaining From an Ethnic Indian Kitchen, at my website komalinunna.com.


I am joining Tabletop Tuesday @ A Stroll Thru Life and Patty's Weekend Wrap-Up , The Key Bunch's November Diwali Dhamka Party, Cindy for Show and Tell and Vignette Friday @ Color Outside the Lines.
