The ritual of decorating the house in beautiful lights and other accessories during a festival has been around since the beginning of festivities. Be it kids or the elders, shopping and adorning the house during a festival is something everybody likes.
Eid is a very special occasion for Muslims, not only because of cultural and religious significance but the bliss it comes along with. The treats, gifts and above of all the tradition of sharing happiness and love add to the enthusiasm. Going to your relatives’ houses and exchanging blessings and presents on this holy day is a tradition. Since friends and family will visit you as well; you should try different decoration ideas to increase the beauty and ambiance of your house to match the divinity of this day. Here are a few ways to decorate your home for the beautiful day of Eid.
Sprinkle the Stars and Swing the Moon
The stars and moon have been considered very auspicious in Islam. What can be better than the lovely stars and moon to adorn your house with? There are different varieties of star and moon decorating pieces in the market. But if you have a creative bone and adore the handmade pieces more, then you can make something yourself. The falling stars garlands, strings or wall hangings would look amazing – on windows, above doors or the walls – on this special day.
Ah! The lighting. What festival is complete without the bright and stylish light décor? Don’t forget to add a fabulous lighting element to your home on Eid. The lanterns are traditional lighting pieces and introduce amazing beauty to the place. If you don’t have time to go shopping, you could make a paper lantern yourself at home. Nothing is better than something you crafted on your own. You could also make use of the strings of light bulbs.
Wreath to wish Eid Mubarak
Eid wreath is easy to make from a slew of materials. You can make it from flowers, use leaves, or maybe colored mesh (available easily at the crafts store). You can either prefer a Christmas wreath-like ring layout or make it more interesting in crescent – half-moon – shape, the choice is yours! You can hang it on the front door or over the fireplace, if you may. Any part of the house can flourish in divinity of the festival with a wreath fashioned with a star of Eid Mubarak.
Blend of Light and Scent
Of course, the candles. They do so much more than just illuminating the space. Candles also spread the lovely scent and serve as decorative items. Try different ways of displaying those candles you bought for Eid. You can get decorative candles from a store or can paint them yourself at home. Add some water to a bowl and let the candles float in there; you can use this as a centerpiece as well.
Bunch of Balloons
I don’t have to say how important balloons are. Everybody loves the sight of balloons. And frankly, any decoration would seem a little dull without a bunch of balloons. Plain, glittery or with inscriptions, they are all pretty. Plus, there is no such thing as overdoing when it comes to decorating your house for a festival. Balloons can also serve as a medium to give Eidi to the children. Put some money and treats inside the balloon and hand them over to the kids, because Eidi is the best part for them.
Well, if you are decorating for Eid, why not touch upon every nook and corner of the house? Walls are important to be taken into the account. If you don’t want to do much then hang a few Eid garlands on the main walls of the house. You can splash them with new colors. The use of handcrafted garlands with some pop up colors and glitters surely adds a striking element to the wall. You can make a collage of photographs with your loved ones and display it on the wall.
Spread the Sweet Fragrance
A sweet fragrance in the house can lift up the spirits of the host as well as the guests. Fresh flowers settled on the table, in the ignored corners, kitchen, next to the door give your home a heavenly touch. Don’t shy away from even overdoing it. There’s no one who doesn’t like flowers. You can also put a flowered wreath on the door giving it a fresh and inviting look.
The floor must not be neglected. The soft and smooth, traditional carpets adorned with embellished accessories attract everyone’s attention and also gather a lot of compliments. There are plenty to choose from. But as you are decorating for Eid, make it Eid-themed.
Set the Table for Presents
Who says presents have to stay in a bag? They can also help to adorn your settings. Get a table and set the presents in a decorative manner on it. You’ve got another piece to brighten up the space. The gifts can be packed in shiny, glittery packing or beautiful bags can hold them while giving a stunning touch to the space they are kept in.
The dishware or the dishes sure are of importance. The beautifully set table with exquisite crockery filled with delicious and appealing food in them not only contributes to the beauty of the house but also gives you a satisfactory sense.
Stage the Treats
The mouth-watering treats of Eid have to be the best of the day. Staging them in a decorative manner will make them more irresistible. Try something new; tempt your guests with beautifully adorned, made to order Eid cake. Embellish a table with candles and lights and stage the food you have prepared for the day in the middle of it.
Make your Eid divine with special and stunning embellishments. Eid Mubarak!
