Ramadan is a beautiful month, one that should be celebrated and joyous. I always used to look forward to this time of year as a child, mostly because Eid was our one BIG holiday. Now that I’m a mom, I want to recreate some of that excitement for my children. Here are some simple ways to decorate your home to welcome this special month. These were taken over the span of two years.

Tip: Purchase hanging christmas lights during the summer for better price.
I used to turn these lights on my kitchen island every night just before iftar, and my daughter would be so excited to see them.
Decorate a welcome table in the entry way of your home so that every time you walk through the door, you and your guests can feel the warmth and festiveness.

Alhamdulillah there are so many varieties of products in the Ramadan category being sold online and in stores. This year, I purchased mine from my local Dollar Bazaar and Party Fair, to support their businesses for offering Ramadan Decor. And involving my kids in the decor was a wonderful way to create more excitement and establish a connection with this holy month.

Wrapping your gifts in colorful and decorative paper is always a bit more exciting.
Personally, I wish to make Eid as anticipated and special for my children, so that they never feel like they’re missing out on something. Alhamdulillah, we are blessed enough to change that and really make it a special time of the year. Getting your little ones involved and excited for Ramadan is something that will stay with them forever.
