    Thumbs up What's different in your Golu & Navarathiri???

    Hi all

    With Navarathiri around the corner, it is definitely time to have a discussion on it.
    So ILites, what are you doing this year differently in your Golu? How are you going to outsmart the others?

    Do you have special plans to impress your visitors?

    Why not share it with others? May be some of us can take cues from your inputs too.

    Cheers
    Jenz

    Hi Cutepavi & AC,

    Thanks for kickstarting the discussion.

    So Pavi, do you have plans to invite people home during the last 3 days?

    May be you should take some snaps too.

    Cheers
    Jenz

    Definetly will invite on just one evening. Last year I spread it and invited on 3 days and my dh and ds got upset with me saying "why so many ladies around"Drowning
    so this year just one evening.
    I dont have many dolls so will keep small shelf only.
    I have stuff to keep the park maybe I might just keep a park and not break my head bonk about other ideas!

    Lastyear I borroed my nephews swimming pool set and kept it with some lounge chairs and people lounging. This year maybe just regular park!
