Decorating with candles for Diwali



 Chalk rangoli on my front porch. I filled tall glasses with colored water and used them as candle holders.



 My boys' tic tac toe board used as a candle holder. The little animals that you see around the candles are pieces from their mancala game.


 My dining table all dolled up for the festive season... during the day.
 

at night! 

 My cute yarn wreath peeping in the background.

 Do you see my WS knock off hurricanes?

Marigolds+ roses+ floating candles = Festive!
