As we approach the end of October, populations around the world prepare to welcome in the New Year with Diwali, the “Festival of Lights.” This beautiful five-day festival symbolizes the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance and hope over despair. In the spirit of the season, we turned to our friends at Tinsel & Twine to deconstruct a beautifully designed table that will inspire plenty of celebrations!
Tinsel & Twine used our Orange Hemp Flocking linen as the base of their design. With its deep orange hue and intricate pattern, the linen is reminiscent of traditional henna designs. Garlands of Marigolds, Carnations and velvety Celosias were strung together across the table in a gorgeous floral runner. The bright fuchsia, yellow, red and orange blooms really livened up the celebration! Marigolds are very symbolic in India representing passion and creativity and also used as love charms, especially for newlyweds!
We love how the designers added in touches of brass throughout with ornate candleholders, traditional brass trays and hammered metal bowls filled with dried fruits and orange lentils. From the lasercut Ceci New York place cards to the decorative rim on Party Rental Limited’s Gold Florentine plates, each pattern plays perfectly off the other.
And of course, no Diwali celebration would be complete without twinkling candles! Pretty mercury glass tea-light holders added a magical sparkle to the night. From the Autumnal palette to the bold florals and gilded décor, we are obsessed with this beautiful design!
