Festival should be celebrated as per tradition not for show off. So basic is celebrate it in way it was celebrated in past with all basics like buy it from traditional idol maker which mostly is clay made, use decorations made up of local traditional material, use traditional lighting lamps, do use local fruits and vegetables for offerings and consume same. Immersion should be as per locally suitable traditional site. more
Right tips. I understand now some clay Ganeshas are made in such way that the idol has plant seed in it. After the end of the pooja, just keep it in a pot and pour water. Slowly, a p[ant comes in that place. Beautiful idea.
