Planning a modernEid Celebration







With Eid-al-Adha just around the corner, now is the perfect time to start planning your card and gift lists and preparing to celebrate with family and friends. I recently moved my family back to my hometown after 15 years. The last time I was a resident, I was not a Muslim, so now I’m slowly but surely becoming acquainted with the local community. I’ve been toying with the idea of hosting an Eid gathering to welcome some new friends into our lives, insha’Allah. In the past I’ve taken a rather haphazard route to decorating – kind of flying by the seat of my pants if you will. I love the excitement of celebrations, and decorations really do help magnify that feeling. Thankfully, modernEid has come to my rescue.

I first learned about modernEID decorations when the company teamed up with American Muslim Mom for a special campaign and contest. ModernEid specializes in uber stylish décor and accessories specifically for Eid holidays. How cool is that? When the chance to sample some of their products came my way, I pounced!

When I received my sample package in the mail, here’s what it contained:

  • Decorative bunting
  • Decorative print
  • Gift box
  • 1 dozen mini cupcake frosting liners
  • 1 dozen cupcake liners
  • Candy bags
  • Gift tags
  • 2” round stickers

I’m sooo looking forward to putting all these goodies to good use – especially the cupcake liners (Mmmm…). You can visit modernEid on Facebook and modernEid on Twitter for updates and information about special offers.

The Blog Contest Prize: an Eid Party Kit (a $25 value) in the winner’s choice of design. The party kit includes:

I really want to know what you think!
