Ramadan and Eid are the times in the Islamic calendar when gathering together and sharing with others are priceless. A precious time for enjoying quality time with your friends and family over an Iftar or a Suhoor. In case you don´t know what an Iftar is, it is the meal eaten by Muslims right after sunset during the holy month of Ramadan. Nowadays in Dubai, there are plenty of Iftar offerings in restaurants and tents, but nothing beats having something private and cozy at home with your beloved ones. And soon comes Eid!
We thought about how special this moment is for Muslims and also non-Muslims and decided to gather for you some ideas to make the table set up as gorgeous as can be.
BE MY GUEST! TABLE SETUP IDEAS THAT WILL WOW.
Let us number a few tips to keep in mind and being the perfect host.
- Choose a theme and color palette for your table.
- Burnt incense in order to create the right atmosphere.
- Candles and fanoos (lanterns) are a must-have.
- Disposable items are a big NO. Not only it is not appropriate, but also it is not environmentally friendly. Let’s stay green and save ourselves from using plastics unnecessarily.
- Choose linen and cloth instead of paper. Add napkins rings! It’s all about the details.
- Give it a personal touch by adding the names of the people joining for Iftar or even a family picture.
- Make one of the elements be the key of your set up by being risky with colors, shapes, and design. They won’t forget it!
- Flowers are always right!
- Let the little ones get involved!
