Growing up in the UK, I have little to no recollection of Ramadan or Eid décor being available in smaller Islamic businesses, let alone mainstream stores. Ramadan was solely focused around the sacrificial elements, evenings in prayer and special times breaking the fast with friends and family. Fast forward a couple of decades and the evolution of Ramadan and Eid in the age of social media and growing consumerism, we are now almost spoilt for choice for how we can decorate our homes during the holy month and on the special festival of Eid!

With Christmas decorations being the norm and the expansion of Easter and Halloween decorations ever increasing, it was only a matter of time before Ramadan and Eid would be included. It is a great way to make Muslim children get excited for the month and celebration at the end. And a fabulous excuse for DIY project- obsessed decorators like me to kit out the house during Ramadan and Eid!

Here are some pretty Ramadan decoration ideas, that can also be used for either Eid this year…

Often, Ramadan/Eid decoration styles tend to derive from the same region as the origins of the faith – Arabia. With geometric patterns, lanterns, crescent moons and stars to boot, you will often find Ramadan and Eid décor that emulates the interior of an opulently designed mosque.
