Once Upon A Eid {Review & Giveaway}

If you are a one stop shopper like me, you are going to love Once Upon A Eid. It’s the place that brings together all of our favorite Eid products from multiple vendors in one place along with mainstream products like the paper pouches and paper straws we all love. It’s a new company that just opened a couple months ago, and it’s already on my go to list as it should be yours!

Once Upon an Eid Swag Bag

I was thrilled to receive these bag of goodies from Once Upon A Eid. Filled with tableware for Ramadan and Eid!

Wanna see how I used my goodies? Let’s start with Ramadan…

Ramadan Paper Plate Garland

Instead of just using the dessert plates for dessert, I made a simple Ramadan garland!

Ramadan GarlandI bought these hangers sometime ago, and I’ve been waiting for the perfect something to use them for. These dessert paper plates were the perfect fit for the hangers to create an easy to make garland!

Ramadan Dessert Table Ideas

Napkins don’t just have to be used as what they were intended for… how about flowers and basket liners!

Ramadan Iftar Decorating

I made some flowers using both of the Ramadan napkins each of which were glued to a striped paper straw. {my own straws but Once Upon Eid does carry paper straws too!} I also used the napkins to line my basket of dates.

Eid Napkin Pennant Banner

Not only did I use the napkins I received to make flowers and as basket liners, along with the Eid ribbon I received, I also used them to make a pennant banner for Eid!

This Eid Mubarak Fonts tableware line is my favorite. I love the vibrant colors of pink and teal set on white!

Eid Dessert Table

I also decided to team up the Eid Mubarak Fonts line with the Ramadan lantern plates. Since they didn’t have Ramadan written anywhere, they are interchangeable to use between Ramadan and Eid. Loved that!

DIY Eid Dessert Stand

I use the Eid plates and Ramadan lantern plates to make a dessert stand. The plates held up nicely!

Glitter Eid Mubarak Wood Sign

Last but not least was this fun glitter Eid Mubarak wood hanging sign. It’s a great addition to your holiday decor! It can simply be hung up anywhere as is.

Eid Wreath

However I opted to make an Eid wreath out of it. No individual letters to glue on… one piece glued on with one simple step. What’s a wreath without flowers, right? So I made napkin flowers out of the purple Ramadan napkins. The hint of green in the napkins made them the perfect match to the green sign.

I really had fun with my Once Upon A Eid swag gift. I want you to have some fun too.. and so does Once Upon A Eid!

    I really love all of these decorations. It's so nice that it's getting easier to find pretty much whatever you could want for Ramadan and the Eid.

    What beautiful decorations! I love the wreath you made. Though, what I would really love is to snack at that dessert table.
