Have a balcony that is plain and dull? It’s time to deck it up with some Diwali light decorations. Bring out those fairy lights that you have stored away in your attic and set them up. If you take a look at this balcony, it’s beautifully dressed with fairy lights from top to bottom creating a parade of light. This balcony also has a bookshelf that has been outlined with fairy lights which is an excellent way to decorate a balcony space. Cut out birds and stars and hang them together on a string to create a chime of their own to make this balcony ready for Diwali.
