  1. Prepare a list.List the people you are going to invite for the Diwali veneration. Let it be a wide circle including your friends, family and relatives. Since this is a celebration of victory, for once ignore the negative relationship between your friends or family and include them in your guest-invited list. This might even help you to befriend each other and settle things that are heated up among you.
  2. Arrange.The venue, time/ date should be arranged according to everyone's comfort. Choose an appropriate venue and time when no one would be busy.
  3. Invitations.Prepare an invitation card or buy some and send them to the people you want to invite specifying the venue, time/date e.t.c. Send them through post or hand it over personally. Calling and informing them is also a good idea.
  4. Check.Check your groceries, catering items e.t.c are up to date. If not, then its time to go shopping and update it so that you won't run out of anything at the last moment.
  5. Try getting the address or phone numbers of the catering service.Place an order before hand for enough chairs, tables e.t.c and store them away until the day of the occasion. A day before the occasion is the best time to place an order.

Order the Necessary Items

  1. Arrange comfortable seating.During or after the Veneration, people need to sit and relax and, so, order enough chairs and if needed tables too. Get some workers get working in arranging the chairs and tables in a comfy position. Get a canopy too if its daylight and if you can afford for it. If not, just arrange the tables and chairs under a shed or tree or a roofed shed.
  2. Gather your catering items.For giving out theprasador offerings, order plates (plastic or steel would do),spoons, cups and bowls. Plastic spoons, forks and cups are disposable thereby allowing for the easy disposable of used catering items.
  3. Prepare drinks and water for your guests.Also, order bottles of water or a dispenser for the guests fulfillment. Get some juice packets from a local store or prepare your own.
  4. Protect your guests different changes in the weather.Place order for canopies to prevent sunlight, cold, rain or different weather changes from disturbing the guests.
  5. Engage your guests sweet tooth.Order sweets from a nice confectionery store. Sweets can also be made in the house or home-made. This requires special training as the guests expect perfectly prepared food and sweets. Make yourself prepared and equipped with cookbooks and other sources to prepare a perfect and delicious sweet.


  1. Bring in the holy presence of flowers.You can decorate the whole place with flowers.(plastic or fake flowers are the best as they won't dry up as the real ones). Flowers bring in sweet scent and beauty to the room or item you are decorating it with.
  • Try buying garlands of fake flowers to hang in the doorway or around the veneration venue to add to the beauty of the place.
  • If possible, collect the petals of different flowers and throw them at the doorway.
  1. Decorate with diyas.Buy enough diyas and decorate the place nicely so that the whole place shines! This is really important because Diwali means light over dark, so diyas are pretty important during this occasion.
  2. Prepare a rangoli.Rangoli is also the main attraction to a Diwali veneration. Make lovely rangolis all over the entrance and inside the prayer hall near the gods idols. They attract more people and also increase the beauty of the surroundings. It is not only the main attraction, but also a sacred tradition in India. If a home doesn't have a rangoli, Goddess Laxmi won't enter the respective home in the form of wealth.

    Community Answer
    The ingredients to make panchamrit are dahi, gangajal, honey, sugar, tulsidal, makhana, gari, and if you want, a bit of rosewater. Add the honey (more preferable than sugar) so than it balances the dahi's general sourness.
