Flowers and fruits say abundance, speaking of which, marigolds are available in plenty this time around. These flowers can be used as whole flowers, as petals to form a bed, or sew them together and hang them in strings on walls.

Candles and lanterns

Brass and copper decoration
Metallic accents and accessories can give your home a shiny and classy look. Brass and Copper are an intrinsic part of the modern design too as most designers make liberal use of the metal accents to add just the right hint of glamour and an ethnic touch.
