Happy Diwali From Talking Tables

Diwali is known as the festival of lights and is a 5 day long celebration where we celebrate the “victory of good over evil” and the lights represent the light after darkness. These days includes prayers for health, success and prosperity as well as lots of food, gifts, bright lights and colourful decorations (rangoli) and not to forget fireworks and sparklers! We also mark the day after Diwali as the start of the New Year.

What I really love about Diwali is the getting together with our family and friends and celebrating these special days! My highlight is decorate the house entrance with colourful patterns known as “Rangoli” and light up the house with candles and decorations as well as preparing various foodie treats, both savoury and sweet, that I love gifting to everyone.

This year, I really enjoyed hosting and celebrating Diwali at work with Jateen and Kelsang! I love how Talking Tables encourages cultural and diverse celebrations and how the team, including those who don’t celebrate, came together to make this such a beautiful and colourful event.  How the traditional Indian decorations blended with modern Talking Tables products such as the buntings, candles holders and tall candles, the string lights, bud vases and beautiful flowers was absolutely amazing and created such a beautiful ambience.

It was really heart-warming to share this special event with our colleagues and to know that they all loved and appreciated it all, right from the decorations and food to the Indian flavoured cocktails and celebrating with sparklers.
