The festive spirit has already begun as Ganesh Chaturthi is nearing. The decorations are being put up, and melodious chimes can be heard on the streets as Mumbai prepares to celebrate its favourite festival. When the city is decked up for the grand celebration, so shall your home.

It's a wonderful feeling to welcome the Lord Almighty into your home. But when it comes to doing it correctly, that's where this quick guide will come to your rescue. The first step is to choose your ideal idol, and it’s always advisable to bring an eco-friendly one as they can do a lot of good for your health and the environment. Once you’ve finalised your Ganesha, the next big step is to get your home ready.

While keeping the idol, the vaastu must be considered. It should be positioned to the east or west of the house. The northeast corner of your home is the best place to keep your Ganesha idol. If the northeast is unavailable, the idol must be positioned so that you can pray facing north or east.

When the place and mandap are set, that is when the decorations should be ticked off. We believe there is a strong attachment to traditional décor, and what could be more traditional than fresh flower garlands, and a handmade rangoli? It's the geru on the floor that brings out the colours in the beautiful rangoli and makes for a warm welcome.

Keeping plants near your mandal for an earthy feel adds a nice and sophisticated touch to your decorations. Growing wheatgrass for decorations is a fantastic option that lasts for a long time and has a higher usage value.

Fragrant incense create an auspicious aura in the home, and an electric camphor burner is preferable for less pollution. With the decorations and ambience being set, a sweeter note with a festive treat is required. You can choose from a variety of delectable sweets or go for the best option, fruits. They last longer, and the Lord will undoubtedly want you to be in the best of health.

You're ready to welcome Ganpati into your home, celebrate the festival, worship him, and seek abundant blessings at this point. We hope you and your family enjoy this festival filled with puja, aartis, and wonderful celebrations.

It's only after a great festival that the lord must return to his haven. Ganpati visarjan can also be performed at home, where the idol is respectfully immersed in water while the name of Ganesh is chanted. Thereafter, the water can be used to water the plants. That is how Bappa remains with you even after Visarjan and makes every day joyous.

It is just as important to share with others as it is to give back to nature. Similarly to how sweets and fruits are distributed, it is best to use micorgreens for planting and composting the decoration flowers. The festival, which began on a happy note, should end on a happy note as well.

What you will remember about this festival are the memories, blessings, and your future path. And, during this time, if you are planning to buy a home, it is best to go with a reputable developer and a project that is ideal for you. If you are looking for a dream home, invest in your dream city with a renowned developer like the Chandak Group.
