Flower garlands have been used in many cultures across the world as symbols of respect, purity, beauty, peace, love and passion. Flowers, leaves and foliage, skillfully threaded into garlands, have been worn as adornments or hung as decorations since ancient times.
In India flower garlands are not only used to adorn gods and individuals but also roads, houses, palaces, and even cities. On auspicious occasions, the door frame of the home entrance is decorated with torana (garlands made of flowers and leaves) as a symbol of welcome.
Welcoming guests with a high degree of hospitality is deep-rooted in the Indian values. Considering that the tradition of welcoming guests is based on the ancient Indian dictum “Atithi Devo bhava that translates” to “may the guest be a god unto you”; it is only apt that, like the gods, the guests are also welcomed with garlands as a symbol of good will and honour. Let us bring this joy of decorating our homes or personal spaces with marigold garlands. We will try this with a twist of craft paper.
