Diwali 2012

Wish you all a very Happy Diwali. The evening is yet to begin. Here are some random pictures of the rangoli I made today.



Nursery Tour: Vriksha in Mumbai

Good morning folks! Do you have fifteen minutes to spare? Yes? Great,  continue reading. However,  if you are short on time, then I suggest you come back because you’ll want to take full pleasure of the pictures and it’s not fair to smell the roses in a fleeting few seconds, is it? But, do come back…we’ll be waiting.

Diwali Styling: Candle and Flower Centerpieces

Home spic and span? Check. Bought diyas? Check.  Shopping? Check. Made sweets? Check.  Rangoli design? Check. Diwali menu? Check.

The silkiness of the fabrics, ribbons coordinate well with the peacock feathers. The simple white…



Flowers Say It All

It finally feels bright and cheerful. After a damp weekend, the summery sun is back –  shining on Bangalore.

Before September is over, it’s time to wish Sharon and Rekha of The Key Bunch who are celebrating their second blog anniversary. What a nice way to bring in their blog’s third year through flowers. I share a few corners of my home decked with flowers in recent months…



February – The Month of Flowers

A wedding anniversary, a birthday, and the day for professing love world wide – all fall in the month of February. In other words, the house is smelling fresh of flowers and bouquets all round the month.

My husband used to be once called a ‘florist’ dearly by friends for the amount of money he spent (umm, invested!) in buying flowers. I’m not fond of red roses, so…
