March has nearly come to an end, which means it's almost that time of the year when we celebrate the holy days of Chaitra Navratri. So all of you must be getting ready for the festive season that's about to come. It's one of the most celebrated festivals in India, and everyone in India eagerly waits for it to honor the divinity of Goddess Durga and her victory over the evil demon Mahishasura.
However, this festival is celebrated differently across India's several regions over nine nights. Each night, one of the nine forms of the Goddess Durga is worshiped. Every place gets soaked into the spirit of festivity during these nine days and nights. But to be prepared for these nine days and nights, you have to take care of some things beforehand.
Your home has to be kept pristine clean and decorate your home with festive themes. So you have to give your home the makeover and place a chowki with brass Singh Vahini Durga idol to bring prosperity into your home. However, decorating a home is not an easy task and can be quite exhausting and annoying at the same time.
If you're confused about what you can do for Navratri decorations for home, we're here to help you do it. In this blog, we have come up with some elegant yet easy home decoration ideas that'll be perfect for the upcoming Navratri season.
Tidy up your home's entrance decor
A well-decorated entrance can give your guests an idea of what they can expect inside your home. So the best way to prepare for this auspicious festival is by embellishing your home's entrance with Navratri decoration. You can give a fresh coat of paint to your entrance gate and add an arch from the gate to the hallway using flowers or bells. They can be of various sizes and colors to give a variety of dangling looks at the entrance.
Also, don't forget to liven up your living room using rice lights, diyas and other illumination items all the way to the front gate. To bring more positive vibes into your home, get a brass Ambe Maa idol from Punam Metalcrafts and place it near the entrance to keep the negative vibes out and blessings in.
Spruce up your home with indoor plants
Flowers and plants always had a special place in both home decorations and pooja rituals. They can add a homely vibe to any area and elevate the mood of any person. And since there's so much stress and anxiety in life after COVID-19, it would be wise to keep our surroundings lively and energetic.
You should go for aromatic plants that have good vibes and hold a sacred place in Hindu mythology. Hence, try to opt for plants like Jasmine, Orchid, and Lavender that look beautiful and can also be used in Navratri Pooja. You can also use plants like money plants, creeper, bamboo to easily decorate your home and bring in good vibes and aroma.
Since these plants have long lives, you can not only use them for festive décor. You can use them all year long to decorate your living room or bedroom. Don't forget to buy metal or traditional flower pots for your plants so you can use them for any room in your home or pooja rooms.
Set up a beautiful Mata chowki for Navrarti pooja
For Navratri pooja, you have to set up a new shrine, which is also called chowki or mandap, to place the Maa Durga idol for pooja rituals. You can also decorate the chowki with flower garlands in the colors of yellow, pink and orange and traditional red cloth. You also have to place a traditional rug instead of a rangoli decorated with a copper bowl and flowers in the middle.
Since all items for Navratri pooja have to be new, you either have to go out and buy them or get them delivered to your doorstep from Punam Metalcrafts.
