Ramadan is right around the corner! In a few days, the sight of the crescent moon will mark the beginning of this holy month so prepare your mind, body, and soul but let’s also get your home ready for the evening feasts. Iftar is all about food after not eating for hours but a beautiful table also plays an important role: it enhances the pleasure of eating and it will WOW your family and friends!
Here are three very different table decor I have styled in my dining room. I hope they inspire you…
Looking for Arabic decor to style your Ramadan table? Have a look at this setting with all the items from O’de Rose. It has it all: Arabic calligraphy dishware, khamsa shaped dish for the delicious Arabic pastries, moon shaped decor, tarboush dish for the dates and gold teacups. And how cool and colorful are the mix and match placemats! I added some fresh blooms from my garden to add a touch of elegance and tadaaaaaaaa: all these accent pieces create a gorgeous iftar table!
Now, how about a colorful spring feeling table setting? I have styled this playful and yet very chic table with handmade tableware and accessories from East Gallery. The bird motif plates, as well as the two big leaves that I used as a centerpiece, are a beautiful illustration of what nature has to offer. The table features shades of green, pink, yellow, orange. I also grouped 3 vases/jar of different height and color and I filled pomegranate shaped dishes with dates and almonds to give the table an iftar feel. Happy colors and patterns: what a better way to welcome a blessed dinner.
In the mood for a coastal, fresh and inviting tablescape? Here I teamed up with Home and Soul. The base of the whole setting is the beautiful navy blue and white tablecloth on which I laid round tablemats decorated with seashells. Then I added more patterns with the blue coastal plates and bowls in the same color palette. Using clementines as a decoration was an interesting way to add color.The orange fruits coupled with the flowers make the table pop! I also filled baskets with Arabic pastries and dates and a candle holder with almonds to remind us that we’re about to break the fast. This seaside-inspired decor creates a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere and will help you unwind after a tiring but so rewarding day.
