Having hoarded away my Christmas and New year décor, its time now to change up again…this time for Sankranthi! Like most Indian festivals, this festival has its share of colour and cheer too. Back home, kites form colourful specs in the sky and home entryways are adorned with pretty rangolis! Here though, I’m quite smug changing up my cushion covers and adding flowers to liven up my home before invoking blessings with offerings of pongal.
These cushion covers entirely hand made by mum-in-law were gifted to me a good 5 years but happily resurface everytime my sofa needs a cheer up. The mix of these bright colours adds instant festive cheer…
The pretty motifs are added with sequins and glitter glue… as simple as it gets!
Now that the ambiance is all set, its just the right time to sit back and enjoy a bowl of warm and soulful pongal.
…while I wish all of you a life of happiness, peace and prosperity now and always!
