Diwali – A Celebration of Life

Joy is the fuel of the heart that leaves pieces of light and love everywhere we tread – Oprah Winfrey.

It has been a great pre-diwali for us, creating a variety of  latkans, matkas, lanterns, marigold and rangoli platters, door tags and of course, tea lights and diyas.

Marigold symbolizes auspiciousness and its a must festive adornment for Diwali. Thalis and lanterns shine with these orange flower accompaniments.

Tea lights wrapped with lace and a few flowers go a long way in brightening up your surroundings.

Toran means gateway and without a lemon chilli toran at the entrance, the festivities seem incomplete.

A word of caution: The lemon and chilli are incredibly realistic but are not edible.

Sweet delights sure look scrumptious when presented in floral trays, boxes and jars.

Festivals and flowers are synonymous and being surrounded by flowers is what adds to the spirit of the occasion.

Every year we try to incorporate new festive fervors and this year has been great in that regard. Our peacock lotus theme with bells and crystal embellishments have extended to door runners, hangings, platters and table settings. We have also added bougainvillea flower to our festivities for the first time.

This Diwali we have a deeper cause of helping out kids with a past of abuse, both emotional and physical. We also strongly believe that helping a mother to be financially independent helps bring kids out of tough situations.

Women empowerment and gender equality is an overarching theme for every product that goes out of Tania Clay studio. Products made symbolize strength and power of these women to stand tall amidst difficulties. Kudos to them.

Women at Tania Clay Studio have risen against all odds and we are happy to be there for them.

Thank you. Your association with us has helped us move forward in our endeavors.

AS the diyas light up our house, let the light penetrate inwards making our helping spirit shine stronger than ever before.
