Ramadan Decor to Light up your Home
Posted on April 05 2021
Ramadan is in the air and with only a few days left before the holy month of fasting officially begins, our team at Zeena Uncovered has put together a list of Muslim-owned, minority-owned and women-owned businesses (plus other fabulous finds) to help you navigate the flurry of decor options out there, all while making your home festive & bright, just in time for Ramadan.
Illuminate Your Walls
Break your fasts under starry skies no matter the weather with these intricate Moroccan string lights from Days of Eid. Founded in 2016, Days of Eid began with one simple product – an Eid Mubarak yard sign. Since then, the company has grown beyond their humble beginnings and carries everything from crescent-shaped balloons to bakeware. A cheerful gold banner from Amasi Decor will keep you seeing stars, especially when you hang them beside these twinkling celestial string lights. Extend your decor outdoors with solar powered lights from Pottery Barn. Amany suggests color-changing LED strips to really get things glowing.
