Eid-ul-Fitr is the perfect occasion to celebrate with your family and friends. It’s a time for togetherness, gratitude, laughter and of course, enjoying the delicious dishes cooked for the big day! With so many things lined up, it’s necessary to plan things so that everything goes smoothly, and the day ends with beautiful memories. And on that note, here’s a guide that includes the best Ramadan celebration ideas that you should consider following to make your day even more special!
Dress Up For The Occasion
Yes, you might love to dress up for any occasion, but the occasion of Eid is an auspicious festival, and it is essential that you dress right while celebrating it. One of the most popular items of clothing for women during this occasion is the Anarkali suit. They are available in a variety of different styles and designs. Choose from jewel-studded Anarkalis or pastel tones to match the summery vibe this season. You can also choose a shimmery Anarkali if that’s the way you want to go!
Another evergreen option is to choose a traditional saree. They are versatile, elegant, and come in a wide range of conventional and trendy varieties, making them ideal for the event. You can pick from materials such as chiffon, crepe or silk. Alternatively, select dhoti sarees or palazzo sarees to stay grounded while adding a contemporary twist. Pair it up with a contrasting blouse, traditional earrings and shoes to complete the outfit and attend the Ramadan events in style!
If you’d like to go for a modern look, maxi dresses come to your rescue. You can go for a maxi dress with traditional prints or select one with frills and layers, which are trendy picks for the season.
Accessorise your outfits with some beautiful accessories from Shoppers Stop. Be it studs or sparkling shoulder-grazers – you can get it all! For a traditional outfit, you should go for golden jhumkas or kundan earrings. You can also choose a necklace and earring set to create an ensemble that says ‘well-put-together’!
Ethnic Ensembles For Men
Fashion isn’t just for the ladies, and men equally look forward to dressing up for the day. And there are plenty of options for men to enjoy the Ramadan events in style as well!
There are quite a few traditional as well as fusion wear styles for you to choose from to celebrate Eid fashionably. In case you want to take a modern route, you should pair comfortable trousers with a polo T-shirt or collared shirt to look smart. Alternatively, dress up in a traditional kurta-pyjama for a traditional look, and complete it with a patterned stole in contrasting hues.
However, fashion sensibilities have evolved, and so have styles for men. If you’d like to experiment, opt for light pastel-toned kurtas with a bright pyjama for contrast. You can also pair these kurtas with dhoti pants to enjoy the summer breeze this Eid. Jackets make a fine addition to a suit. Shop from the latest collection of Nehru jackets that can be worn with simple kurtas for an Indo-western look.
Dress The Kids Up Too!
Kids love to dress up no matter the occasion, and Eid is no different! Dress up the girls in cotton dresses or shararas with embroidered details or gold foil prints for Ramadan events. For the boys, dress them in smart shirts or in a contrasting kurta set to make sure they look their handsome best for the Ramadan events.
Show Off Your Crockery And Cutlery
With relatives visiting, it’s time to set aside the old crockery and cutlery and bring out the new ones. As you lay out the dishes before you break the fast, you might be tempted to document your hard work through a well-deserved photo. So, it’s important to have everything looking good and perfect! Select an appropriate tablecloth and table runner to go with the style of your serve-ware for your Eid-ul-Fitr decorations. You could opt for a plastic tablecloth if there are a lot of children, and you expect a spillage.
You can also choose from some great dinner sets to add to your Eid-ul-Fitr decorations. Porcelain is one of the most popular options to invest in. With its delicate look and intricately painted designs, it’s definitely a great addition. However, you can also go with wooden serveware for a rustic look! Serve some cooling sherbet in delicate crystal glasses to accompany your delicious Iftar meal.
You can also add bread baskets to your table as part of yourEid-ul-Fitr decorations. If you’re not using them to store bread, it can be used to hold fresh flowers for the table!
Benefits Of A Summertime Eid
With Eid-ul-Fitr falling during summer, your Ramadan celebration ideas could also include hosting an outdoor dinner. Set your dining table in the garden or the rooftop to have dinner under the stars. You can decorate the space using some beautiful textured lanterns – you can either use paper lanterns for a soft effect or perforated metal lanterns for a play of light and shadows. Perfumed candles are another great idea for your Ramadan decorations. Pick a pleasant floral scent and make it sit pretty on a candle stand or a painted bottle votive to add charm to the surroundings.
Alternatively, if you’re planning to have dinner in the dining room, but would like to relax outside later, you can put out a couple of garden chairs and tables to unwind with a cool drink after dinner. You can add a touch of green beauties to your living room by investing in potted plants that will surely make the room look and feel fresh.
If you want to go that extra step, you could even change the upholstery of your house. Your Ramadan decorations can include a new sofa to complement the walls of your house. Pick out some embroidered throw pillows to make it look even better!
