1. Flower decoration
Be it any festival; the decoration is incomplete without flowers because they are a sign of peace, purity and divinity.

All the desserts are made from 100% Desi Ghee along with purified & finest ingredients. Besides, they are packed with dry fruits, making them delectable. Due to their packing, they can be used for gifting purposes to your near and dear ones.
Ganesh Chaturthi is deemed incomplete without the presence of durva. Indeed, it is one of the most important Ganesh puja essentials. The durva is retrieved from grass but has to be carefully chosen because it is supposed to have three blades. Take a walk in a garden near your house which has grass, and you can find durva and a chance to offer fresh durva every day.
However, if you want to have a permanent solution where you are unable to find it, then go for a readymade one by silver durva from Bharat Jewellers.

Bappa brings a light of hope and positivity when he visits our home. Undoubtedly, we can’t keep him in the dark, isn’t it? So, why not brighten his mandap with diyas?
