Diwali is a “festival of lights” that celebrates the triumph of light over dark and good over evil, and the blessings of victory, freedom, and enlightenment. The name comes from Sanksrit dipavali, meaning “row of lights.” On the night of Diwali, celebrants light dozens of candles and clay lamps, called diyas, placing them throughout their homes and in the streets to light up the dark night.
In most of India, Diwali consists of a five-day celebration that peaks on the third day with the main festival of Diwali. In other places where Diwali occurs, usually, only the main day is celebrated.
The main celebration of Diwali takes place on the day of the new Moon, when the sky is at its darkest, so a big part of the celebration revolves around light. Candles, clay lamps, and oil lanterns are lit and placed throughout the home, in the streets, in areas of worship, and floated on lakes and rivers. Fireworks are also set off on the night of Diwali - said by some to ward off evil spirits.
Different types of flowers are used for Diwali rituals and home decoration purposes. Without flowers, Diwali is almost incomplete. You can’t fulfill your home decor without lights and flowers. To make someone happy with unique Diwali gifts, you can choose a beautifully designed flower bouquet from our collection of bright sunflowers, roses, chrysanthemums, lilies, and more. Overall, flowers have become an integral part of the Diwali celebration in India and all over the world. Beautiful flowers bring happiness with their divine appearance and vibrant colours.
Diwali is a great occasion to show your love and care for your family members and loved ones. On this bright occasion, people send gifts to others to share happiness. A bunch of beautiful flowers along with a box of chocolates would be the perfect gift to send to a person who is special to you.

Diwali, the festival of lights, is celebrated over five days. The first day is known as Dhanteras. People clean their houses and go shopping for gold or kitchenware to attract good luck. On the second day, also known as Naraka Chaturdasi or Choti Diwali, people adorn their houses with clay lamps and draw rangoli designs on the floor using coloured sand or powder. The festival's main day is the third, when families do Lakshmi puja, a prayer to Goddess Lakshmi, and enjoy delectable feasts. The fourth day is dedicated to the Govardhan Puja, commemorating the first day of the New Year, and is when friends and family come to visit with gifts and seasonal greetings. The last and most important day is Bhai Dooj or Bhau Beej, honouring the unique relationship between brothers and sisters. When brothers visit their married sisters, they are lavishly welcomed and served tasty food.
Diwali is all about spreading joy, indicating new beginnings, and symbolising the triumph of good over evil. The best flowers for decoration are pink and yellow orchids, marigolds, roses, mango leaves, and bel leaves. Lotus flowers also offer to goddess Lakshmi on Diwali to mark the festival.
The Symbols of Deepavali that celebrates the essence of the occasion include the following:
Ganesha, the most well-known Hindu God, has an elephant-like head and a human body, symbolising God's gentle strength, knowledge, and power.
Bindi/Pottu, is a traditional red dot on the forehead of married Hindu women, while unmarried girls wear a black one. During Deepavali, Hindu households welcome visitors with a dot of crimson or saffron powder as a token of good fortune.
Aum, the most recognisable symbol of Hinduism, is a mystical and holy sign, word, mantra, and bija (root sound) shared by practically all Indian subcontinental religions.
The Lotus flower is significant in the Hindu religion as Gods and goddesses sit on lotus thrones with a flower in their hands. Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and fortune, especially welcomed into homes during Deepavali, is also strongly linked with the lotus, or the Padma.
Namaste. Uttering "namaste" with palms together and upper torso lowered means "I bow to you". The salutation is used in everyday situations.
Rangoli/Kolam, a floor art that makes a more prominent appearance at the entrances of homes and temples with different colours made with dyed rice, flour, and flowers.
Gopura, Built according to ancient Indian architectural and sculptural precepts, the Hindu temple is seen as the abode of the gods and a symbolic representation of God.
Oil lamps, which represent "rows of light".
Peacock feathers, its decorative motifs seen in Indian culture.
Diwali decorations include the use of lights and glowing decorations with floral decoration that represents prosperity and joy. Clay oil lamps called diyas, candles, fairy lights, rangoli, toran, marigold garlands, and lanterns are used to decorate houses, streets, workplaces, worship places, etc.
The spiritual meaning of Diwali, the victory of light over darkness, is beautifully represented by many colours, especially yellow coloured flowers. Sunflowers, gerberas, yellow and orange roses, yellow freesias, chrysanthemums, and lilies are mainly used as they represent light and illumination.
Bright colour flowers perfectly symbolise the festival of lights, happiness, and new beginnings. Appropriate flowers for Diwali would be sunflowers, roses, gerberas, freesias, jasmines, chrysanthemums, and lilies.
