Ramadan is one of my favorite holidays. And it’s quickly approaching! This year, I will get to spend it with my husband and daughter for the first time which means, no more of mama’s delicious Iftar and depending on her to create a Ramadan spirit.

I’m obsessed with lanterns in general, it just gives off an oriental feel and reminds me of my childhood growing up in Abu Dhabi. I also have used them as decor for my Religious Ceremony which happened to be during the last days of Ramadan two years ago so you can say lanterns are pretty special to me which is why I will be placing a few in our Hawaii condo. Here’s a few lanterns i’ve liked:

With Ramadan quickly approaching, I hope this post helped get you excited despite our quarantine state. I personally can’t wait to get creative and attempt to make iftar as delicious as my mom’s ?
