Rose and lamps in a corner-pink and silver

Rangoli by the main door and the back door with Lakshmi’s feet

Tealights all around..

I forgot to take pictures of the food Smile with tongue out

For Diwali breakfast,there was Chivda,besan laddu,mathri.

Faral was besan laddu,Chivda,gulab jamun,mathri,chakli and karanji.

We hosted a potluck dinner for 7 families on Diwali day and the menu was:

Vadas, mixed veg,chole,malai kofta,raita,paratha and pulav.. the food was yumm..but,more than that,it was the Diwali spirit that left us all feeling happy and content.There were some sparklers and party poppers too..So,it was amazing. For the first time,in the last 7 years,I didn’t miss home…Smile

Hope you all had a happy Diwali and have a prosperous new year!

  1. Sounds like you had an excellent Deepavali celebration. For the first time in 10 years, even we did not miss home. We visited a temple locally where there was a huge fire cracker bursting session, we could purchase and bring it home too. So got some sparklers and the kids had a blast bursting them again at home.

    All these years, the only thing that would remind us of the festivities was the food, first time we enjoyed it with firecrackers!


    1. Ohh I knoww what you mean!! its so nice,when we can merge our two lives together na..the real one and the one in our memories!
      Aadi and her friends had a blast with the sparklers too..only when the first two-three sparklers died… she was heartbroken..LOL!
