Ganesh Chaturthi Decoration Ideas - Vaaree

Ganesh Chaturthi is a 10-day festival celebrated in the Bhadra month of the Hindu calendar. Marking the birth of Lord Ganesha, more commonly addressed as Bappa – the god of prosperity and the remover of obstacles. During this festival, devotees get a murti of the deity home, place it in a well-decorated mandap, worship it by chanting aartis every day and on the 10th day bid their goodbyes with a visarjan.

Here are some Ganesh Chaturthi decoration ideas to welcome Bappa:

  • Ganesh Chaturthi Decoration With Drapes

This homemade Ganapati decoration at home idea doesn’t require a lot of preparation. All you need is some colorful curtains or old dupattas! Arrange them in an aesthetic manner preferably in dual tones. Add fairy lights to the Ganesh Chaturthi Decoration to liven it up instantly. Alternatively, you could also pin real / faux flowers on the drape. 

  • Bring Out Some Leafy Love

If you are someone who likes sustainable or eco-friendly Ganesh Chaturthi Decoration ideas, this one is for you! Just place your big plants behind the murti or pluck leaves from a tree and hang them on a mesh. Alternatively, you could also install a money plant mesh. The best part about this decoration is that you will not have to discard anything - let the plants grow to blend in with your home decor! We recommend opting for this decoration with a clay Ganesha murti. 


  • Keep It Simple With Diyas

Looking for low budget Ganpati decoration? Or simple ganpati home decoration that doesn’t wear out with the festivity? Timeless brass diyas to the rescue! Not only do they double as showpieces but also make the entire setup look incredibly pious. Think of hanging brass diyas on the altar, a set of tall urlis on the floor, or engraved masterpieces near the statue. 

  • Leverage The Flower Power

Be it festivals or fashion, you can never go wrong with anything floral! Use flowers for your Ganesh Chaturthi decoration if everything else seems too difficult to execute. Sew marigolds together and arrange them vertically for a symmetrical decoration. Another idea is to create a mishmash of colorful flowers that complement each other and place them as a backdrop or on the stage pillars.

  • Leave A Trail Of Fragrance

Incense sticks and dhoops have many spiritual benefits and leave the house smelling like a dream. Pick one in your favorite scent and burn it before the morning & evening Aarti to harness its positivity whilst creating a calming atmosphere. If you are not big on incense sticks, swap it for bhimseni kapoor lit up in exquisite diffusers like our Krindra Tealight Holder with Oil Diffuser.
