Tips on how to host an Eid Open House for your non-Muslim and Muslim fri!ends and neighbors

A couple of years ago, I hosted my very first Eid Open House, and it was a huge hit! 

So, what’s an Eid Open House? Great question! An Eid Open House is where you have  an open invitation to allow friends, family, and neighbors to come into your home to celebrate Eid.

Hosting an Eid Open House is a great way to get to know your neighbors and invite your non-Muslim friends to come and celebrate Eid with you! Sounds awesome, right?! 

I have teamed up with Tea India to bring you this sponsored post in which I will share my tips on how you can host your own Eid Open House!

5 Tips On How To Host An Eid Open House

1. Invite others

Put up a lawn sign to let your neighbors know of the open house or simply go to their homes and invite them to the event. For family and friends that live in a different neighborhood, hand out invitations or send them an e-invite.

2. Decorate your home-

Eid decor can be anything from hanging up an ‘Eid Mubarak’ banner, putting out lanterns, or hanging up lights- have fun with it!

3. Serve food and beverages-

An Eid Open House usually takes place after lunch and before dinner time, so snacks and refreshments are served. Staying close to my South Asian roots, I would serve pakoras, samosas, fruit chaat, a cake, and some chai from Tea India

Chais made from Tea India get their great taste from the ingredients that consist of the most finest, natural, and authentic spices. Moreover, there is no artificial flavoring added to their teas, which is amazing!

4. Explain what Eid is-

Some of your non-Muslim friends and neighbors may not know what Eid is, so it’s a good idea to hand out information cards explaining what Eid is.

5. Have activities ready for children-

Prepare an activity station for children that will be stopping by with their parents. At the station, have some crayons and coloring sheets, puzzles, books, word search sheets, and etc. 

 

The most important thing to keep in mind while hosting an Eid Open House is to have fun and make it as stress free as possible. Enjoy this time with your family, friends, and neighbors- Eid Mubarak!

  1. I would probably serve pasta or similar for the kids. Sandwiches, Dahi baray, BBQ chicken/kabab, veggie rice and of course Sawaiyyan (vermicelli)!!

  2. I would serve some warm samosas, sandwiches, chicken kababs,macroons and tea ofcourse, I would also have little grab bags (age appropriate, etc grab bags ranging for kids, 1-3, 4-7, 8-14) In the hopes that this would keep kids somewhat occupied)

  3. I would serve typical Desi breakfast items like aloo chanay, halwa, nihari, sheer korma and an assortment of pouri and naan. Beverages would include mango lassi and some karak (strong) chai!

  4. I would serve cupcakes, cookies, some spicy snacks like samosas, rolls, custards and of course tea. Tea is must in our household 😊

  5. I would serve some harira, chicken pasta alfredo, cucumber salad and for dessert Ghriba cookies with some hot tea.
