Inside: Best Ganpati decor ideas that will bring luck into your household all year long.
I have recently been learning more and more about Hindu deities and it has been so fascinating. This week, I am deep diving into everything that has to do with Ganpati. Because of this, I learned all about Ganpati Decor and I wanted to look into it further.
I found so many amazing things on the internet that I think you are going to enjoy. So I gathered them all up for you to take a look at!
This is a beautiful Deity to have one in your home. You will get that pun as you learn more about this style of decor throughout this article.
So what are you waiting for? There is so much to cover before we get into the decor ideas, including who Ganpati is, how to decorate for them in your home, and what you should decorate with. Have at it!
Who is Ganpati?
I wanted to briefly touch upon this for those of you who clicked on this article because you were curious. Ganpati, or Ganesh, is a Hindu Deity that has been worshiped for centuries.
According to this article, “Ganesha, also spelled Ganesh, also called Ganapati, elephant-headed Hindu god of beginnings, who is traditionally worshipped before any major enterprise and is the patron of intellectuals, bankers, scribes, and authors.”
It’s said that putting up statues of this deity in your house brings you good luck.
How to decorate for Ganpati at home?
There are so many wonderful ways that you can honor Ganpati in your home with your decor. What you decide to put in your house is up to you, but I found there are some common things that I have seen in every example of Ganpati Decor, so I thought I would showcase them here.
First and foremost, I want you to keep in mind that this is a very personal thing. You get to decide how you want to honor Ganpati, so if you don’t jive with some of the things on this list, switch them out for something that you do enjoy.
First up, something that I often see among Ganpati decor ideas is bright colors. Bright colors remind me of when I threw awesome color war games! Sorry, I didn’t mean to get sidetracked. You can see in the lists below just how bright and lively all of these decorations are.
Next, flowers are something that many people include in their shrines or honorary spaces. There are certain flowers that Ganpati is known for, and I go over those in the lists below. So check that out!
Twinkle lights are another fun idea that I think makes a wonderful addition to any area in your home that you are decorating for Ganpati.
Lastly, adding things like fruit and other offerings is very common. If you want to make the space feel more put together then consider adding some sheer curtains as well. They are very adorable, and they bring the whole place together.
Which is the best natural decoration for Ganpati?
Personally, I think flowers should be at the top of your list. Ganpati is highly associated with them, they are colorful, and you can never have enough flowers in a space. You can use them as garland, you can add bouquets to the room, or you can simply sprinkle some of their petals all around your altar space.
Of course, you can include an all-natural clay statue of Ganpati as well, but I find that flowers are much more affordable. So until you have the funds, this is a great resource.
Which color is best for Ganpati decoration?
As I said above and as you will see below, color has a huge place amongst ganpati decorations. So you may be wondering to yourself which color or colors are best for your decor. Well, according to the Times of India,
“Lord Ganesha is usually portrayed wearing red and yellow clothes. Yellow symbolizes purity, peace, auspiciousness, a sense of control, and truthfulness. Red symbolizes the activity in the world. Thus an individual should perform all duties in the world with purity, peace, and truthfulness.”
These two colors are crucial for your decor, so make sure you include them!
