Ramadan is an exciting time of year for our family! If you’re unfamiliar with this holiday, Ramadan is the month of fasting, where Muslim families from all over the world fast from dawn to dusk. This month is filled with family festivities, prayer, and reflection. To motivate my family (and myself!) through this journey, we fill our home with reminders and beautiful Ramadan Decor to inspire and carry us through.
As a part of preparing for Ramadan and getting out of the self-doubt process, I have been decorating for Ramadan for the past few years. This is a great way to have a daily reminder in the form of decor right in front of you, to remind you, YOU CAN DO IT. The decor for me is like a personal cheer leader – it reminds me that it is a PRIVILEGE to be given the opportunity to fast in Ramadan. It reminds me, that I have been doing this for 22 years of my life and I can do it again.
Ready to add some Ramadan Decor to your family home? In this series, I partnered up with a talented group of Muslim bloggers for this post to share easy Ramadan decorating ideas that you can easily create with minimal power tools.
Sharing the Joy of Ramadan with Our Neighbours
A lovely way to spread the joy of Ramadan as a family is to also celebrate with our neighbours. Every year, Liyana and I put together treats for our neighbours in different ways and celebrate by handing them out. Here we purchased lanterns from the local dollar store and added candy for our neighbours and added a “Ramadan Mubarak” tag that you can download here:
Another fantastic way to inspire you and your family during Ramadan that is easy to execute and costs very little to make, is printable decor! In this post, you’ll find a collection of FREE Ramadan Printables for your home and some fun activities for your kids to enjoy!
To create some excitement for my daughter around our family Ramadan Celebration, I decorated her bedroom! I wanted this to become a special little play space for her so she could make iftaar and suhoor for her “friends” (dolls), read them books, as well as giving us a nice cozy and inviting place to spend some time together during Ramadan.
I decorate with intention to help me get into the frame of mind to have a successful Ramadan. Complementary to that, I thought it would be helpful to write a reflective post for my Ramadan Goals and share some of my struggles with you.
I’d love to hear how your family celebrates Ramadan! Share your traditions in the comments below, or tag me on instagram at @mintcandydesigns and we can celebrate together.
