So it begins; Muslims have begun their yearly observance of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of sober repentance marked by a month of fasting from sunrise to sunset. The joyous festival of Eid, also known as Hari Raya Aidilfitri, follows Ramadan’s end.
Apart from eating mouthwatering Malay foods like ketupat, rendang, satay, lemang, and so on, venues are also decorated to welcome the festival season. Offices, malls, and other public spaces are all decked out in a variety of decorations. In honour of Hari Raya Aidilfitri, we’ve compiled a list of beautiful ideas with a variety of themes to help you decorate your living and working places.
Pelita / Oil Lamps
In the last week of Ramadan and the first week of Hari Raya Aidilfitri, the traditional Malay oil lamp, or ‘pelita’ in Bahasa Malaysia, is more than simply a decorative item. Oil lamps are traditionally built from recycled materials such as soft drink cans or empty glass jars and placed along tree branches.
To add a festive air to celebrations, most people place oil lamps on the fences or around the compounds of their homes as decorative decorations. You can also use the branches of a tree in front of your home to create a wooden framework for oil lamps.

Colors that are bright and clean will make your home appear larger and roomier. Alternatively, add a splash of color to create a more vibrant ambiance.
Choosing paint colors for your walls can be a difficult task. To be on the safe side, go with more neutral colors or paint only certain walls. If at all feasible, get some help with your painting because it can be a physically demanding task.
Rearrange Your Furniture
The living room is a crucial location because it is where you will greet and entertain your visitors. Rather than replacing your furniture, you may simply rearrange it to give your living room a fresh look. Without making any major home improvements, a change arrangement will offer your property a new vibe or style.
For example, if you have a sudden surge of relatives visiting, you can cluster your sofas together in a corner to provide more space for them to move around. It will also make your living space appear larger and more inviting.
The use of a tablecloth gives the table more personality and improves the atmosphere of the dining room. Tablecloths aren’t just for decoration; a decent quality cloth material protects against scratches and accidental spills and stains. Table skirting looks attractive, conceals barren tables, and hides poor table conditions. Choose the tablecloth that matches your house theme and event.
