Ramadan In Lockdown

Before talking about the Eid party we should talk a bit about Ramadan 2020 during the lockdown

Ramadan this year was definitely the strangest one of my life so far. There was no taraweeh in the mosques, no long discussions with the brothers after the prayers, no obligatory prayers in the mosque and the kids were locked at home which resulted in me losing my patience.

However, we were able to pray and perform taraweeh, along with all our traditions and adorations at home. Elhamdou liLAH ALLAH (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is the most merciful and HE makes our religion easy for us.

It was elhamdou liLAH experience in the end as we were focused on Ramadan, rather than staying in front of the mosque and talking with the brothers, so we spent more time worshipping our creator ALLAH (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى).

It certainly was a Ramadan to remember.

Preparation of the Eid Party 2020

Unfortunately, Ramadan will soon finish and we will all hope that ALLAH (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى) accepts our deeds that were performed during this month. Even after this time of worship, we should continue with our efforts throughout the coming year in order to please ALLAH (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى).

A result of the lockdown means that we will not be able to visit our family this year, so instead, we decided to organise an Eid Party. 

We decided to choose two different colours and shapes for our party sets. We then proceeded to ask our family to choose between them. Below is a brief description of each set.

Note: We used the same halal sweets and accessories in both sets.

Eid Party Set Number One

This glamourous white and gold table set is made up of:

  • Plates, cups and napkins
  • Halal sweets for the children (and mostly for me too lol)
  • Cake decorations
  • Fruits
  • A variety of balloons including an Eid Mubarak banner

White and gold is classic combination that will add style and glamour to any party table.

 

Eid Party Set Number Two

This second set is very similar to the first, however, the colour scheme follows blue and silver.

This stylish blue and silver set is made up of:

  • Plates, cups and napkins
  • Halal sweets for the children (and once again, mostly for me too lol)
  • Cake decorations
  • Fruits
  • A variety of balloons including an Eid Mubarak banner

Personally, I think this set was really nice. I liked the font used to write Eid Mubarak in particular.

And the winner is...

After trying different styles and designs, our family agreed that the winner was…the white and golden set! Everyone agreed that this set was 100% the most beautiful.

Overall, it was a fun experience to make these tests, however, it was also stressful too. Our kids were so excited that they began playing around the table and all of the decorations that we had built. Our little boy ended up eating one of the 0’s from our 2020 chocolate letter that we had used to write Eid Mubarak 2020. Luckily, we managed to find something else to use for the decoration.

I am sure that if we weren’t in lockdown, we would have been able to organise a better party, however, it has been difficult to find good products during this time. The table set looks very nice and the sweets are yummy but I was unable to find any good quality balloons or tablecloths. I would have liked to find some nicer decorations in order to have a better final result, however, these things cannot be helped.

Elhamdou liLAH I think when it comes to the day of the Eid Party, we will put everything in place and do our very best to ensure we make this Eid memorable for us and our children.

May this year’s Eid bring you joy and may your family be blessed by the grace of Allah. Eid Mubarak to you all!

I am sure we would be able do better than that but it is difficult to find good product with the lockdown. I mean the table set looks pretty well and the sweets too but I was not able to find good balloons, or tablecloths and other decorations that you can add for a better result.

Elhamdou liLAH I think on the Eid Party day we will put everything in place to make this Eid memorable for us and our children.
