MashAllah MashAllah, my little princess Sumi completed reciting Quran for the first time in her life. Its an outstanding accomplishment not only for herself but for our entire family especially her parents who were consistant and supportive to help her achieve this goal. Event accompanied after this accomplishment is called Ameen. Entire family, friends and community members join to celebrate this happy occasion. weather was beautiful and covid was under some control plus plan was to do it outdoor.
Staged this event as a "BREAKFAST IN BED" Sumi's backyard was the perfect place to hold the event. Breakfast tables were placed on white round table cloths, surrounded with bed pillows. Assembled couple of tents ( luckily all three were belongs to us one from QB's room, One from Bj's wedding and one was Sumi's from TARGET) around the area but decorated Sumi's tent little more festive with a fur stool, cane pumpkin, and a rainbow sign.
Setup food serving area on the deck and eating area below the deck. As you can see we used the same vases, beads and placemats from Zainy's aqeeqah. i love my wooden party chairs, I bought many many years ago from Craigslist and they been the best investment ever. All year long they haul from places to places but still in excellent condition.
Cousin's House Warming
Dr HC and Nazli are the very dear cousins of mine from maternal side. They just moved to their new home and i am very happy for their beautiful home.May Allah bless their new home and family.
Nazli requested me to help her plan and arrange for this beautiful gathering. I have one pillow at home to begin with. I started building my theme of colors and decided to go for a fall pale colors. Soft green, pale yellow, deep violet and coral Since the seating was on the floor I choose trays from TARGET and added candles, fall flowers and Little wooden houses. Everything on the tray was from TARGET SPOT ITEMS (love to stop by first there before any theme party) Added some pillows as well to make it cozy and more festive. Main pillows were from TARGET and remaining were from Home Goods and HOME Sense. For the spread i used white king size sheets from ROSS for Less.
Appetizers were all made by Nazli and we catered food from Afghan Kabob. Most of the desserts were from Costco but we got cake made by a local baker. DELICIOUS!!!
Wait I didnt mentioned the part i loved the most about that get together was an Islamic Nasheed by my cousin Dr Sahib.
