Diwali Patakaa!

Diwali or Deepawali is 'festival of lights'. 
It is the biggest and brightest festival for India (similar to Christmas)
It's the time of the year when you decorate your home on full swing. 
We love it as all our family & friends are together and celebrate with fun.
Some buy latest pretty home accessories and some do their own crafts. 
Lets share some of our ideas for this Diwali!
But first of all....

Designing Life wishes all Very Happy Diwali!!
