A bright silk fabric with delicate lace is fastened to a bamboo stalk at the top. It is ornamented with neem and mango leaves, as well as flower garlands. An inverted copper or bronze kalash is placed on top.
The following are the primary elements of a traditional Gudi Padwa:
  • Rangoli – Gudi Padwa decorations are incomplete without a Rangoli. It could be as basic as a tiny floral design or as elaborate as displaying the complete Gudi Padwa festival. Imbue your zeal for creating your own Rangoli with divinity. You can even decorate the Rangoli with dias.

As everyone knows, mango leaves are utilized for a variety of celebrations, including Diwali, when garlands of the leaves are displayed on doors. But neem leaves are just as important during the Gudi Padwa celebration as mango leaves. As a ritual, eating neem leaves with jaggery serves as a reminder that life is a mixture of joys and tragedies, and we should accept both with dignity.
  • Traditional textile – Decorating your home with brand-new, 100% cotton or silk fabric is a must for any celebration. Replace the old cushion coverings on your cushions! To create a festive atmosphere, spread out fresh bed linens and comforters! Wear stylish, contemporary ethnic clothing that highlights the diversity of our nation’s cultures. During the auspicious Gudi Padwa festival, add a hint of gold, silver, and bronze to garments by using zari embroidery.
