Eid Decor Already?
Ramadan may be two months away, but my girls have already started talking about Eid. The little one because that is when she next wears nail polish (insert eye roll and lol), the big because she is an enthusiastic party planner. We have gotten into the rhythm of hosting something on Eid ul Fitr every year. As the girls get older we make a conscious effort to have that something be an event that involves all their friends. Their excitement over their clothes, getting their henna done the day before, the Eid decor, the impatience with which they wait for friends to arrive, that is the best part.
When Lail of With a Spin, a tasteful Islamic products store, sent these adorable camel cutters and favor boxes to me to try out I instantly knew that whatever I did would have to reflect that bright happy joy. I also love the idea of making a fun whimsical tablescape with items that would actually get eaten or used. My girls got such a kick out of the little camel cookie toppers, and I really enjoyed how the sugar cookies made a simple white cake look so festive.
So..Why Now Again?
There is a big part of me that wanted to hold on to these eid decor ideas until we were closer to Eid, but I wanted to make sure you had enough time to order whatever you want for both Ramadan and Eid and get it delivered in time. Huge bonus? You can even save a little extra! To get 15% off on bakeware use the code flourandspice. This discount is valid until April 8. To get 10% off any order over $20 use WAS10. My faves? Well you know I love the cookie cutters, but the little Happy Eid cupcake picks are SO cute and I love the jigsaw puzzles for kids too!
There are lots of lovely ideas at With a Spin for Ramadan and Eid decorations as well as thoughtful gifts for the people in your life. To read more about what you will need to recreate this tablescape scroll to the bottom.
Materials Needed for Eid Decor Tablescape:
please note I did mine with roughly 10 cookies!
- Islamic Shape Cookie Cutter Set
- Camel Shape Cookie Cutter
- Palm Tree Favor Boxes
- Vanilla Frosting (coming soon!)
- One 6-inch cake, 8-10 cupcakes (your favourite or use a mix if you are pressed for time!)
- Wilton 1M tip to pipe the outside of the cake and the cupcakes. You will have more than enough frosting for the filling too!
- Small batch sugar cookie recipe (SO good!) or for a bigger batch this is my go to. Remember to 2.5 times the decorating quantities below. Also you can manually cut a 'tab' into the cescent (or any other shape) to make them easier to use as cake/cupcake toppers)
- Royal Icing Mix (I used a half bag of the Bulk Barn mix)
- Icing bags for piping the cookies, food colouring for the royal icing accents, a little goes far so a mere dollop in each colour worked well for me!
