Preparing for Diwali

Preparing my home for the festive season is my favourite thing to do.

Removing the pretty things to put around. Cleaning & polishing everything to make it sparkle.

The girls are now big enough to put out the rangoli themselves...
Oh but the wind keeps putting the lights away...

I simply love to see candles ... everywhere.. 

Last year, we put out all our pretty trays with various sizes of lamps that we had, and various candles and candle holders at home...

A cluster of various items... made it look even more gorgeous..

Look how beautiful this looks.. *smiles*

Can't wait to start putting on the lights this year... *smiles*

Diwali food

Food display is my favourite thing to do... 
Here is what we did for Diwali last year... 

This was jal jeera ...
Jeera means cumin and this is a refreshing drink typically made of jeera & lemonade... tastes yumm!!

We had kebabs on skewers with little coriander chutney with them..

Individually served chaat ...
This is my all time favourite.. I can eat chaat at anytime of the day!

We had a variety of chaat, paapdi chaat, dahi chaat, channa chaat. *sigh*

More kebabs in a different display...

And the evening simply looked amazing... the food was impressive too! *smiles*
