9 simple house decorating tips for Dhanteras

  1. Genda Phool Decor but Minimal

One of the most festive flowers in India has to be the marigold flowers. It would not be wrong to say that people have overused genda pool in every decoration. It has totally become a cliche style but it is cliche for a reason. The warmth, charm, happiness, and vibe these flowers bring to the table are amazing. Also, these are considered auspicious. We know you are going to overdo these on Diwali, so for Dhanteras, you can go a little minimal. You can use genda phool flowers on pots, cups, bowls, etc and keep them in different places. Cute yet minimal, right?
