Ganesh Chaturthi is synonymous with beautiful pandals, sumptuous food and gorgeous festive wear. The festivities begin with welcoming an idol of Lord Ganesha into the home.

Whether you plan to celebrate the festival surrounded by family, or are hosting a bash for all your loved ones, it’s time to up your decor game to match the festive vibe.

Adding a dash of colour, flowers, candles can go a long way in adding character to any space without making too many changes.

If you’re setting up a pandal for the idol at home, invest in some colourful chowkis. The low-level stools can be used to place the idol or diyas on, and can elevate an otherwise dull space.

An important decor element is flowers. Fresh or dried, they are the perfect addition to any space. Whether you want to go for big brass planters, or smaller vases, remember, flowers are always a good idea!

For a table layout, incorporate elements of different heights. This gives the eye something to focus on at all times, and you get a chance to experiment with more of your decor elements (candles, photo frames).

While adding temporary touches to your home is a great way to add a festive touch, some things, like this Ganesha idol by Swarovski, call for a more permanent space. Adorned with over 45,000 crystals in 17 different colours, each idol takes 350 hours to be made.
