eat well, travel often, dream big!

Have you noticed the abundance of holiday “gear” filling up grocery and department stores?  Lately I’ve been feeling just a little depressed that there isn’t much out there for Islamic holidays.  If you know me you know that I don’t do tacky and a lot of decorations geared towards Muslims go over my glitter and brightness quota.  I am so happy that there are some great companies like modernEID who are filling the void and coming through with very classy and clean decorations and accessories for Eid and Ramadan.  I am also really happy to announce that you’re going to get a chance to win some great goodies from modernEid!

Let’s Celebrate a Modern Eid Event

Let's Celebrate a Modern Eid Event








modernEID is a great resource to get contemporary and chic Eid and Ramadan decorations. I love how all of their very modern Eid decorations are grouped into coordinated collections. It takes a ton of work out of the equation for me! The pictures shown here are a part of the Arabesque collection (fitting isn’t it?) and I am in love with all of it! After pouring through all of these paper goodies I decided to make some sweets for the treat bags.  I’ve been promising the boys to make chocolate chip cookies soon and the timing was right.

Using the round gift box and cupcake liners that came in the kit I filled them with cute little chocolate chip cookies.  Of course there had to be two portions of cookies because we all know what happens when you tell little boys to share just one.  Scary.  I really like how unique this cylindrical gift box is.  I’m imagining all of the things that could go inside.  Aside from sweet treats a lightweight coiled scarf, a chunky necklace or bracelet, or even a winter emergency kit (lip gloss, tissues, hand sanitizer – not as cute but useful!)

The kit also came with clear treat bags with Eid tags.  I added some coordinating ribbon that I had around the house to tie it off.  I also liked the Eid stickers to seal the bags but wanted to make sure they could be seen.

    Gift-giving is a tradition in Moroccan, and most Islamic cultures. You wouldn't show up at someone's home for dinner without a small gift for the hostess or children.  For Eid-al-Fitr, and Eid-al-Adha gifts take on a more celebratory role.  In Islamic countries the practice of gift giving during these holidays is largely based on giving…

    Growing up in the U.S. in the late 80’s, Eid was something that I looked forward to every year because of the overflow of love, family and gifts. While material wealth was not in abundance, a strong feeling of community was. Now I feel that as people have accumulated more wealth, they’ve grown apart, either in emotions or physical distance, and Muslim children have gravitated towards wanting to celebrate the holidays of others. As Muslims, it is imperative that we continue to show our children how important (and fun) our holidays can be.

    The Mod design by ModernEid would totally help me towards reaching that goal. I have never been able to find any Eid decorations where I live, much less the beautiful and classy items that ModernEid provides. ModernEid’s products would definitely leave an impressionable impact on the children and adults that visit me this upcoming Eid.

    ASA, I love the Arabesque design. They should think abuot selling them on Zibbet, where I currently sell my handmade one of a kind Eid cards: They can list up to 50 items for free! And Zibbet is the only online site that is very supportie of Eid items.

    Jazakallah Khair

    Assalaamoalaikum! I love modernEid and marocmama! I saw the Eid decor – AWESOME! I always try to get the kids excited about Eid. There’s so much out there for them to get distracted by – Halloween, Christmas, Valentines. So whatever I can do to make Eid more appealing to them, I do. We have a lot of extended family near by, so we could use the decor. I’m sure everyone would love it. I like both the Arabesque and the Mod. I love blues and greens, but because of the weather and fall colors, I think I’d go with the Arabesque, Insha Allah! Jazak Allahu Khairan for your hard work!

    I would like mod. I would like to also see more edible decor at a high quantity and lower price. For example, 36 cupcake edibles for a better price. I would buy bigger edible decor for cakes so we can accent a cake as well as other personalized edible toppers. I love your site. thanks! jazakallah khair
