Happy Hallowe'en from Arvinda's

Hallowe'en is upon us and trick-or-treaters will be knocking on our doors in just a few short hours. If you haven't yet carved your pumpkin yet (yikes!) why not do an Indian-inspired jack-o'-lantern design? 

Our Indian paisley pumpkin doubles up for both Hallowe'en and Diwali, India's Festival of Lights.

This weekend, in India and all over the world people are celebrating Diwali, India's Festival of Lights.  

 “Deep” means light and “availi” means row, so as the translation suggests, streets, houses and pathways are lit up with endless rows of lights, with everything in full illumination, and the skies are dotted with lights.

Just in time for Hallowe'en this year, we double up the festivities and combine the two holidays together!

Here's an Indian-inspired Jack-O'-Lantern, that we'll use for both Hallowe'en and Diwali.
