5 Reasons Why You Should Celebrate Eid Like A Party

This Coming Eid Is Extra Special
Over the last year, the pandemic has brought a lot of disappointing twists and turns. Our celebrations were sadly taken away from us at extremely short notice last year, as UK Muslims were forced to have a socially distanced Eid. Many families were unable to spend the blessed days with their loved ones, and children were left upset due to cancelled plans.
But this year will be entirely different, and the ideas of hope, starting afresh, and optimism resonate stronger with us than ever before.This coming Eid will be extra special for most Muslims around the globe, so why not throw a party you’ll never forget?
Decorations Spark Joy and Enhance Excitement
There’s no doubt about it - blowing up balloons, hanging bunting and whipping out the special tableware for an occasion brings around a unique kind of excitement. Adorning your home with gold and silver decorations will brighten your interior, and generate feelings of warmth, contentment and anticipation for the celebrations.

2020 Shooting Journey in Istanbul - Mini Istanbul City Guide

There, we met up with Betül from EidParty Turkey. We knew from the moment we got together that we were in for an exciting few days!
The Beauty of Balat
After saying our hellos, we checked ourselves into our accommodation - a cosy family-owned hotel called Cibali. From there, we ventured toward the heart of Balat, wandering through its cobbled streets, marvelling at the colourful buildings and quirky cafes we found along the way. If ‘instagramability’ tops your list of travel priorities, you’ll love this little neighbourhood!
It wasn’t long before we reached the Yavuz Sultan Selim Mosque, which is located at the top of the 5th hill of Istanbul. The views we were blessed with from atop this peaceful mosque were incredible. As it doesn’t receive much footfall...

Behind The Scenes at Eid Party
Who We Are, Why We Started and How We Became a One-Stop Shop For Muslim Party Supplies Over the years, Eid Party has become the go-to supplier for Eid and Ramadan decorations. But how did we become such a huge success in such a short space of time? The answer is quite simple really, we were the first brand of our kind. This is the story of Eid Party - how our co-founder wanted to make Eid and Ramadan more exciting for Muslim kids, and turned it into a year round business!
As a mum, Riz developed the concept for Eid Party when she realised the need for a more kid-friendly approach to Eid and Ramadan. She thought, “why shouldn’t my children be as excited for the Blessed Month as the other kids are for Christmas?” She knew she couldn’t be alone in her thinking, so she started searching for ways to generate more of a buzz about Eid.
Riz, Elif and Emre at Hagia Sophia, Istanbul
After scouring the internet for hours in search of exciting party decor, she was left with an extremely limited (and expensive) set of options. It didn’t make sense that no one was selling affordable party accessories for Eid - the biggest event in the Muslim calendar. Feeling that figurative lightbulb moment, the idea for Eid Party was born! With the help of her children, Riz began brainstorming all of the exciting decorations that nurtures a child’s enthusiasm for an event.
Advent calendars, party bags, and vibrant decorations - all of the things kids love could be designed for Eid and Ramadan. It just made sense.
