Pearl Theme Decoration
Pearls are a royal way of decoration and bring the most beautiful look. This type of decoration starts by weaving pearls of various colors in strings and hanging those strings in semi-circular arcs around the temple.
One can also try filling colorful pearls in a glass vase. The pearl decoration can also be extended to Dahi Handi; circularly sticking shining blue pearls around the Handi looks attractive.
Dry Fruits Theme Decoration
The dry fruit theme decoration is undoubtedly the most unique and enchanting. The decoration starts at Lord Krishna’s jhula; sticking pistachios on the structure of the cradle is the first step, followed by covering the chains of the jhula with an alternate combination of almonds and cashews stuck to it vertically.
Figs are relatively more significant in size and can decorate the corners of the temple with raisins stuck to its centers. The temple pillars can be spiraled with cashews and pistachios, giving a royal white tint.
The balloon decoration gives the authentic baby birthday decoration look, which is synonymous with the festival that celebrated the birth of Lord Krishna. The balloon combination choice is the first step; the combination could be of two or more colors.
The balloons can be coded in a fixed combination and spiraled across pillars in the pooja room, made in a huge arc on the background of the idol. A blend of both these ideas can be followed too.
The curtain decoration becomes vibrant when rice lights are hung from it in an arched manner. Holding back the curtains slightly in a traditional style and following the lighting alignment with the curves of the curtain gives an aesthetic look.
The color combination of the curtains must be given importance; the blue-green or orange-red combination works perfectly with the traditional festival style. Furls and puffs can be made of the curtains to give an edge to the decoration.
The decoration can also be done, keeping the expenses well within budget. Indoor plants can be brought closer to the temple, diyas can compensate for the lighting, and earthen pots can create a colorful atmosphere. Even mud and stones can be used to create a village look for depicting the birthplace of Lord Krishna.
The eco-friendly decoration starts with the idol being eco-friendly because, after the festival, it is usually flown in rivers and causes pollution. Mud pots and artificial flowers can be used in the decoration not to disturb the environment for decoration. The balloons can be compensated from colorful cloths, non-toxic wall paints in colors of green, etc.
The vintage decoration style can be achieved by decorating the temple with wooden items and incorporating as many golden items as possible to give that extra little traditional look. The wooden pots and a wooden jhula will give the original village outlook to the decoration; it will make the decoration look more authentic.
Any of the ideas from above can be adopted for 2021 Janmashtami’s decoration, allow your home to live the day in joy with vibrant themes of decorations, and let Lord Krishna’s blessings fall upon your family.
