Party supply specialist, BoxFetti, has launched an exclusive new Ramadan and Eid Party Collection, designed by highly revered Emirati artist Mariam Abbas.
A limited edition line of products including paper cups, plates and napkins, the Ramadan and Eid collection is not only high quality but also eco-friendly – and is as perfect for desert picnics as it is for children’s meals or garden celebrations for Iftar, Suhoor or Eid. Featuring Mariam Abbas’s beautifully hand drawn designs influenced by the elaborate details of Arabian carpets and soft earthy tones of the desert, this exclusive product line is subtle and elegant, incorporating neutral shades, Arabic references and hints of modern calligraphy in homage to the Holy Month of Ramadan and the Eid Al Fitr Holiday.
Renowned for her incredibly intricate drawings, Mariam’s sketches and miniature art focuses on Arabic culture and surroundings and has not only been featured on Instagram’s official account but also commissioned by clients including Etihad Airways and KitKat Arabia.
Mariam spoke of her inspiration for the BoxFetti collaboration, saying, “Traditionally, the rug was where the family gathered in a home. In modern times, however, that’s no longer the case. For the BoxFetti collection, I drew inspiration from that very rug, to evoke a sense of nostalgia.”
Founder of BoxFetti, Louise Hold, added; “Celebrating life’s moments big and small is something I’m passionate about, which is why I wanted to create party goods that are both convenient and unique. It was an honour to work with Mariam on creating this unique collection to mark such a very special time in the Islamic calendar.”
The BoxFetti/Mariam Abbas collection has also inspired the creation of matching handmade cookies by cake designer and sugar artist Rasha Rmeily, (@rasharmeily), whose beautiful sweet treats will add that extra special touch to any Ramadan or Eid tablescape.
BoxFetti’s Ramadan/Eid collection is available for purchase online and at selected Spinneys, Waitrose and Virgin Megastore in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Cookies by Rasha Rmeily are available for purchase on the BoxFetti website www.boxfetti.ae.
