All dressed up in B & W

After a month long of fasting, the day of Eid was finally here. We dressed our Eid Dinner table in Black and White patterns and stripes. This year, my sister and I decided to create an unconventional look using colours that are not common at Eid. Glass drink bottles, chalkboard signs and blooming white rose centrepieces. Have a look...

We used this trusted Birdcage as the sign for the Treats table. Loooves this!

Glass drink bottles all prettied up with labels and black satin ribbon.

B & W paper straws! We just had to. See our blog for purchase details of these and other colours too.

Snacks in glass jars on the Treats table

We used a lace patterned paper napkin and tied it with a white stitched edge ribbon and a little 'Eid Mubarak' sign.

Chalkboard menu!

The centrepiece- fluted glasses with white roses under each and  white candles tied with ribbon on top.

The striped b & w runner

  We moved our drinks station to this sweet little table by Custom Carpentry for a photoshoot.

Pink and Gold Iftaar Dinner

Being the month of Ramadaan, each iftaar (time of breaking the fast) meal calls for a celebration and a get together of loved ones for this precious time. These are pics of the iftaar dinner that my sister and I prepared for her group of friends. 
Pink and gold, and oh so girly! 
To all those fasting, Happy Fasting!

We handmade these pom poms and placed them on fluted glasses as the centrepieces. Our new fav!



The gold and cream damask runner

Gold paper doilie napkin rings.

The place settings

We dressed these Ruby Grapefruit drinks with paper doilie skirts, gold ribbon and paper straws. Sweets!

Milkshake pink paper straws. Now selling at here at TCP on the B.

Being an Iftaar dinner, there had to be dates. We served them in this sweet floral teacup.

Shimmery creations by Nabeela's Bakeshop, on pink paper straws to match the drinks! Love!!
