Ramadan Decorations Ideas For The Home
1. Set The Atmosphere
The first things first, you’ll want to set the atmosphere. You’ll very likely be wiping down surfaces, windowsills tables, and more, and all of those chemically scents may ruin the mood. So why not light up a candle, put on some Quran if you’re alone, or some nasheeds if you have the little ones, to really get you into that Ramadan feeling.
After all, let’s not forget that the month of Ramadan is beyond more than just food and decorations.
2. Ramadan Advent Calendar
Advent calendars are something that’s fun for both adults and children alike. So for our first item of decoration, we’ll be picking out our Ramadan advent calendar.
This beautiful wooden calendar comes in the shape of a mosque, with little draws that you can open presenting you with a little surprise every day.
And if that wasn’t enough, it also lights up!
This large and beautiful calendar is perfect for the interactive family, that wants a centrepiece to enjoy every night.
It comes lit up with LED lights, and it can be reused time and time again for years to come.
Chocolate, our greatest source of comfort. So why not opt for a sweet and simple chocolate Advent Calendar this Ramadan?
Behind each door, you’ve guessed it, is a piece of chocolate waiting for you. And yes, the chocolate is both Halal and vegetarian friendly.
TIP: If you are looking for ideas on where to hang your calendar, the wall closest to your dining table is a good place. In fact this could be used as a focal point for your decorations around you iftar table. But we’ll come back to this later.
3. Mantle Place Decorations
Whether you have a fireplace or not, we can all agree that we all have a mantle place, shelf, or windowsill that we love to decorate. especially for those that live in the UK. So let’s use this as the focal point to decorate this Ramadan.
If you are wondering how you should decorate your mantle place for Ramadan, my tip would be to choose your centrepiece and then build around it. And once you’ve chosen your pieces you can then choose your favourite Ramadan bunting, stringed ornaments or fairy lights to drape around your shelf.
TIP: If your shelf is already busy with other decorations, then be sure to pack it all into a little box so that you can easily put them back out again after Ramadan and Eid both pass.

4. Ramadan Wall Decorations
And now onto the main decorations to adorn your walls with. If you’re wondering what you can hang on your wall, think Ramadan Kareem banners balloons, decals, and other Ramadan Mubarak Decorations that you can hang up or stick onto your walls.
TIP: Blue tac and tape will be your friends when trying to attach any of the decorations to your wall.
If you’re wondering where to put your main wall decorations this Ramadan, I would suggest your living/dining room. After all, this is where your family is likely to spend most of their time. I would say pick a wall and go for it. If by sheer luck you have a feature wall that isn’t already busy, then go for that. Otherwise, the best spot is probably going to be behind your sofa.
5. Hanging Decorations
If you’ve got your walls and mantle place decorations sorted and still looking for more oomph, then look no further than hanging Ramadan decorations. These can easily be hung around your ceiling lights, above TVs, and dining tables for a more dramatic effect.
6. Ramadan Lights
Let’s face it, whenever we are celebrating something there can never be enough lights, and Ramadan lights are no exception. Whether you want a minimalistic or heavily decorated candle or even a fake candle to put in a beautiful and intricately designed lantern, I’ve got your back.
The best part about lanterns is that they come in all shapes and sizes. This means that you can conveniently place them on tables, shelves, staircases, indoors or outdoors, and just about anywhere.
Ceiling Lights For Ramadan
Given how much I love lanterns and candlestick holders in all their forms, I have provided you with lots of options below. As I’m sure you’ll love them too. All the below are very well rated, and you cannot go wrong with them.
Flameless Ramadan Decorations
No matter how tempted you are to light up real candles around your house, if you have kids or more than a couple of people around, please always use flameless candles. If you want to experience the scent that comes with candles, opt for a diffuser to add to the atmosphere.
7. Iftar Table Layout
Ramadan is the time for families to come together, and at the end of the day at the iftar table is where the social action happens. So why not make the layout and presentation extra special to help complement all the lovely treats that you will be whipping up during Ramadan.
This could also be a fantastic way for smaller kids and those who are unable to fast, to get involved with the spirit of Ramadan, by helping to set out the iftar table.

8. Decorating With Kids
Let’s face it, monkey sees and monkey does, and our little cheeky monkeys are no different. So why not get them involved when you are putting up your household decorations this Ramadan. You can put up the important pieces and have them weigh in on how nice they look, pass you the smaller pieces, pieces of tape, etc.
Or if you want you can go ahead and have them craft up some decorations that you can then proudly display around the house. But if
Eco Friendly Ramadan Ideas When Sharing The Love
Ramadan doesn’t just stop at our doorstep. It goes beyond and involves us sharing our love and food with our families, friends, neighbours, and our community at the mosque. Traditionally we are accustomed to using Tupperware boxes, foil trays covered in cling film, and more plastic wear. So this year why not make a more conscious effort to use less plastic when sharing the love.

And there we have it, everything that you’ll need to beautifully decorate your house this Ramadan. But do remember that although Ramadan decorations adds to the atmosphere and helps to make things fun, this is a special time for ibadah and some self reflection.
And with that, I wish you and your family a very happy and blessed Ramadan. Ramadan Kareem to all!
