Peachy Tips to De-Clutter & Decorate your Home this Diwali!

Diwali is just a week away and with most people the pre-festivities have already been kicked off. But, before you hop to buy new clothes, new jewellery and other essentials, consider that surprise guests are sure to visit almost next day during the celebration. And in such a circumstance, exploring your home as a nasty mess is not going to put a good impression in any way.

Take a sneak peek look around your house, isn't it messy and full of toss-able stuffs? How embarrassing would it feel if your doorbell rang and your cousins & friends appear like ghosts to pay you a surprise visit from nowhere? Would you invite to your messy house? I don’t think that’s cool!

Also, if you decorate your living place to hide all the mess around, it won’t make it any good. Imagine kids visiting your home find a stack of broken glass etc. hidden behind the flower vase. Discomforting as it may sound, it does takes place in people’s life. So, this is only one of the many reasons why decorating your home before Diwali is a must. Here are some tips on how to decorate your house for Diwali 2014.
