The Indian festival of Diwali was this past weekend. This is the rangoli I made at our house. Rather than using the traditional colored powder used in India, I used colored sand (from the local craft store to make my rangoli).
Here is the rangoli at night, lit with diyas.
I also made swastik and om symbols with tea light candles.
Some floating candles in a copper bowl, surrounded by more diyas.
I created a centerpiece by placing votive candles in a copper bowl.
I placed the bowl on a piece of saree fabric and placed flowers around the bowl.
