How to host Iftar for your family, friends and colleagues?
Hosting iftar in your home is not only a great way to spend time with your loved ones, but also an opportunity to show them how much you care. To host an unforgettable iftar, keep the following tips in mind:
Plan your menu: Decide what foods will be served at your event and make sure you have enough food for everyone who is coming. You can also consider making some traditional Ramadan dishes or regional favorites that will add flavour to your meal.
Make your home look nice: It's important that guests feel comfortable when they arrive at your place--so make sure everything looks neat and tidy! If there are any rooms where people willgather (such as dining room or living room), decorate them with flowers or other decorative items like lanterns or candles so that they feel festive during Ramadan too!
Plan your menu
Planning your menu is an important part of hosting an iftar. It's also a great way to get creative! Consider the number of guests who will be attending and any dietary restrictions they may have, such as vegetarian or vegan diets. If you're serving finger foods, make sure you have enough food for everyone so that no one leaves hungry.
Consider serving traditional Ramadan dishes such as dates, in addition to some non-traditional options your guests might like. You can also serve salads as hors d'oeuvres before the meal or dessert after dinner (or both!). Keep in mind how late into the evening people plan on staying--if most are leaving after dinner at 9pm then it doesn't make sense to start cooking at 5pm when most people won't finish eating until well past 8pm!
What drinks should you serve at iftar?
If you're hosting an iftar party and want to serve non-alcoholic, halal-compliant drinks, there are many options available. We have a variety of flavours to suit every taste! Our suggestion is to choose a wine that is both celebratory and delicious, which is why we love Martini 0.0 for Iftar time.
Why not try a delicious Vimto Fizz? That’s right, the familiar favourite taste combined with sparkling non-alcoholic wine is the perfect toast for a special occasion.
Serving these drinks in beautiful glassware will make them even more special--and more importantly show that you care about your guests' comfort throughout their meal!
Tips for making it a memorable iftar
Hosting an iftar is a great way to turn your home into a space where friends, family and neighbours can come together. It's also a chance to show your loved ones how much you care about them and their wellbeing during Ramadan.
As well as the obvious benefits of spending quality time with people you love, hosting an iftar has other advantages too. It helps you switch off from the stresses of day-to-day life so that you can enjoy some downtime at home with your loved ones (and yourself). It's an opportunity for everyone in attendance to spend some quality time together creating memories that will last long after Ramadan has ended.
With all the planning and preparation, it can be overwhelming to host a large iftar. But don't worry! We've got you covered with our tips and tricks that will help make your Iftar experience a memorable one.
