Decorating Pooja Thali
Decorating the Pooja Thali is one of the most common rituals in India. This is the first step before moving ahead with other preparations. In order to decorate the thali, one can buy one red colour gota-patti which is most commonly used or can get customised from online vendors.
Add Decorative Bells and Hangings
To give a more simple touch to the mandap, one can always add simple decorative bells to the rest of the area surrounding the idol. The decoration can also be done in the office corridors, entrance and to the pooja area. These magnificent cultures have a way of bringing an appeal to the space.
Colourful Clothes for Idols
Why just stop at decorating the surroundings? One of the best ways to make everything look beautiful is to make beautiful clothes for the idols using vigorous fabrics. One can also add creativity to this by using different colours (according to the theme) for each day.
Lastly, one can always give a personalized touch to the walls in the pooja room by hanging torans with embroidery and mirror work. Keep in mind to use eco-friendly decoration over plastic. One can also use torans made of pearls.
To conclude, one should be aware that Navratri is the festival of colours where each and every day the Durga Maa is adorned with beautiful jewellery and clothes. All of this happens for nine days when people celebrate success and victories with their loved ones.
To adorn your home’s interior, you can also create hangings made of plants. Flowers are the most fundamental plant decoration that you can employ during Navratri.
