4. A Candy Jar
Place a jar at your desk filled with candies of all sorts and let your colleagues savour the taste of Diwali. It will prompt a congenial atmosphere around the place.

Instead of diyas, which might pose a risk of fire, use fairy lights to brighten up the place. Fairy lights will add an enchanting quotient to the place making it more attractive during the festival.
