We have started Ramadan, and many of us are focusing on the pursuit of self-reflection while preparing for Eid celebrations ahead. While Hari Raya will still not be 'like it used to be' this year, that should not stop you from having an intimate joyful celebration with friends and family.
Get into the Raya mood with these easy updates for your home. Here are some budget-friendly ideas for home decor that will make an impact.
1) INTRICATE CARPETS & RUGS FOR A TRADITIONAL TOUCH
Carpets are an understated piece of decor. It is important in bringing a room together, to add colour and to add comfort. But most traditional carpets are thick, heavy and attract dust that we can do without.Fortunately, there are less fussy and lighter options available nowadays.

2) MODERN VASES TO BRIGHTEN UP THE MOOD
During festive periods, it's lovely to have fresh flowers in the home. Fresh flowers or leaf cuttings give a sense of luxury and makes the occasion feel special.

3) SERVE TRADITIONAL BITES IN STYLE
We know that there are sure to be lots of kuehs and munchies that you want your guests to indulge in. Serving them on a stylish cheeseboard is sure to get them excited. Serve anything from savoury to sweets to create a mouth-watering platter. Perfect for the classic kek lapis! Label the different flavours and slice 'em up using the utensils that come with it. Who does not love feeling fancy... ;)

4) HEALTHY BEVERAGES IN CLASSY JARS
This year, we all have been a little bit more health-concious. So cut off the sweet drinks and go for fresh fruit-infused beverages instead. The Windsor beverage jar is the perfect way to serve them.

5) BRAND NEW CUSHIONS IN FESTIVE COLOURS
Everyone knows this classic trick. Changing up your cushions can easily refresh and update the look of your home. Choose colours and materials that gives off a festive vibe to make it feel special and different from other times of the year.

6) SHOP FOR SALE ITEMS!
When shopping for budget-friendly items, search for sale items, as-is or display pieces if you don't mind the minor imperfections. If you are buying a new piece, chances are they will end up with minor dents and scratches after a month or so....so why not just save a few bucks.
