Embrace the spirit of joy and togetherness that defines Eid, a cherished occasion celebrated by Muslims worldwide. As we revel in the blessings of this festive season and the glorious June weather, what could be more fitting than arranging a family outdoor picnic or BBQ to commemorate the occasion?
Here are our top tips for celebrating Eid al-Adha outdoors, and how Peacock Supplies can help you create a memorable event filled with faith, family, and delicious food.
Finding A Location For An Outdoor Eid Celebration
When planning an outdoor Eid celebration, finding the right location is crucial. A spacious park or your own garden are perfect spots to hold your Eid celebration but remember to consider a location with shady spots and plenty of seating options for your guests.
You could even host a community event on a local green or park – this is a great way to get to know those who live in your area and celebrate Eid together as a community.
Setting Up the Perfect Eid Picnic Set-Up
A picnic offers a relaxed environment for family and friends to enjoy each other’s company. Set up picnic blankets, comfortable cushions and low tables as the base of your party set-up. Once you have a base you can then decorate with bunting, balloons and our LED Eid Letter Lights to transform your garden into an Eid party paradise.
You may want to set up additional areas for any activities you have planned, for children to play or for prayer time. Be mindful as to who you are inviting and ensure they are accommodated, for example, older guests may be more comfortable sitting in chairs rather than on the floor.
Scrumptious Food For Eid
What’s a celebration without some delicious food? BBQs are always a winner when it comes to summer parties, marinated kebabs and vegetable skewers are easy to prepare and go down a treat with guests. Make sure to check in with your guests on their dietary requirements and ensure everyone is catered for.
You could even encourage everyone to bring a dish with them, that way everyone has something they love available and you can try something new! Don’t forget to include traditional Eid dishes and desserts like biryani, samosas, and sheer khurma!
Every Picnic or BBQ needs party plates to serve up some delicious food, and we have plenty of Eid Party Packs for you to choose from!
Fun Outdoor Activities For Eid
Organise some fun games and activities to get everyone in the festive spirit during the celebration. Keep your guests entertained with our Eid Temporary Tattoo Sheets and set up a Mosque Tent for the kids to hide away and play in.
For games, you can tire out the kids with tug-of-war, sack races, and scavenger hunts, and bring along some card games for the older folk. Keep the party in line with Eid by sharing stories highlighting the significance of Eid-al-Adha, and the values of gratitude, unity and charity.
Eid Goodie Bags
End the celebration on a high and surprise your guests with some special Eid goodie bags that they can take home. Peacock Supplies offers a range of treat bags and favour boxes that can be filled with sweet treats, small gifts, and heartfelt messages.
These tokens of appreciation will leave a lasting impression and serve as a symbol of unity and gratitude among friends and family.
With Peacock Supplies, you can adorn your celebration with vibrant decorations, serve delicious food, engage in fun activities, and create lasting memories with loved ones. Let the colours, flavours, and joyful spirit of Eid come alive in the great outdoors, as you commemorate this special occasion with faith, happiness, and togetherness.
