Celebrating Hari Raya with All Things NewHari Raya Home Decoration Wall Ideas. Another Eid is upon us — also known as Hari Raya Aidilfitri or Hari Raya Puasa celebrations! Once again, 1.6 billion Muslims from all around the world celebrate the end of another month of abstinence training and reflection during the month of Ramadan in the Islamic lunar calendar. It’s often celebrated with food and social gatherings over three days, and for some communities, up to a month! If you plan to host an event on or in the days proceeding Hari Raya Aidilfitri, from a meetup, to a workshop or conference, or even a house party, consider adding a touch of decorative flair to evoke the aesthetics of the celebration. Doing so can give Muslim attendees a warm fuzzy feeling at your thoughtfulness, and provide attendees unfamiliar with the festival an introduction to other cultures! Here are tips on getting started in planning your event with elements of the festival of Hari Raya in mind. Adorn your walls with Islamic art

Vibrant colour palettes
It follows then that green is often associated with Islamic culture and therefore Eid. But since Islamic art is so diverse and has such a long history, think also of the rich jewel colours found in the palaces of sultans, mosaics, and illuminations of the Qur’an— all the tones of blue, purple, emerald, magenta, gold, ivory, and earth.
Green fresh or moss greens work best in a hall, garden room or conservatory – rooms that link to the outside. A good way to use these shades without the effect feeling overpowering and heavy is to feature them on half a wall and choose a paler/fresher shade for rest of the wall. Darker, natural textures and tones, such as woven willow, wicker or wood, which mirror the colors of the natural world, are good partners.
- Pick one shade of green to use throughout a room.
- Enliven with prints and patterns on delicate botanical themes.
- Choose textured, natural floor coverings such as coir or sisal in mid tones.
- Mix traditional wooden or painted furniture in rustic styles with elegant accessories featuring colors or prints that link to the natural world.
