Go For Gold
For a lavish iftar, glam up for home with flashes of gold contrasted with blues or pinks, to create a showstopping table setting that your guests will admire. Use mirrors, reflective surfaces and lights to illuminate your gold hues and produce a special ambience.
Decorate With Lanterns
Lights accentuate the festive atmosphere and create a spiritual environment –perfect for reflection and an intimate iftar setting. Therefore, introduce as many decorative lanterns and tea lights as you wish, as the lantern is also often associated with the Holy Month.
