10 Simple Hari Raya Decoration Ideas For A Beautiful Home

1. Reimagine your space with a new furniture layout

Rearranging your furniture is the perfect way to add a celebratory note to the festivities of Hari Raya. A great way to start is by thinking out of the box with what you already have. Think creatively about how you can rework the space and switch things up – not just in relatively minor details like Raya decorations, but even shifting around the existing furniture.

Living rooms, in particular, can transform if you make unexpected yet meaningful changes, such as rearranging your existing pieces and trying out exciting layout options relative to the size of the room. 

Whether creating a new focal point or switching the angle or placement of the existing setup, experimenting with different styles can surprise you with how much it changes the atmosphere in your home this Raya.

2. Create a focal point with an accent piece

During the festive season of Hari Raya, adding a touch of colour and flair to our living spaces can make the atmosphere within those walls reflective of the joyous occasion. An easy way to accomplish such is by adding an accent piece –  an accent chair, a sofa, or a rug

Consider incorporating traditional Raya elements into your decor, such as patterned table runners, table mats, ceramic home decorations, or woven rattan pieces. These natural and rustic accents create a warm and inviting atmosphere and add a touch of authenticity to your decorations.

By selecting one bold piece that draws your eye, you can make it the focal point of your space  while tastefully tying in other furniture around your accent piece. 

3. Illuminate your home with festive lights

A contemporary alternative to the Raya lights is to use modern lighting fixtures. Place them in corners or beside seating areas to create a soft and intimate atmosphere. Don't be afraid to experiment with colours, shapes, and placement, and let your creativity shine.

4. Bring nature indoors with greenery

Adding some greenery to your living space is an easy and cost-effective way of bringing warming touches of nature into your home. Whether you opt for a collection of small succulents on your windowsill, a vibrant vase of flowers, a single potted plant, or statement hanging plants, there's no limit to the transformative impact of greenery. 

If tending to live plants isn't for you, then don't worry - plenty of lifelike artificial plants look just as vital and will liven up any area needing some added sparkle.

5. Clear out the clutter for a clean slate

Giving your space a good decluttering is the key to creating an inviting and refreshing atmosphere. Start this new year right by eliminating what you don't need and organising  what's left. 

Make that process easier with stylish and functional storage cabinets. With the extra space they bring, you can fit more items away than ever before, leaving room for all your favourite possessions. 

6. Adorn your home with festive art

Adorn your home with festive art and enhance your space with a variety of displays, such as paintings and ceramic home decors. Unleash your creativity and resourcefulness by experimenting with clustered arrangements of photos, and by hanging souvenirs, calligraphy pieces, and wall artworks in unexpected places for a dynamic look. 

Embrace the beauty of creativity and uniqueness in your arrangements – not everything needs to be perfectly aligned, allowing for a more interesting and personalised space.

7. Embrace tradition with festive symbols

Embrace tradition and enhance your Hari Raya atmosphere with elegant traditional symbols such as crescent moons, stars, and geometric mosaic designs, adding a historic and refined touch to your decorations. 

Incorporate these motifs across various home decors, including sofa cushions, table mats, table runners, and beyond, to weave a cohesive and culturally rich theme throughout your space.

8.  Set the table for a grand feast

Creating a grand feast is more than just setting the tableware and decorations. Selecting the appropriate dining table sets the stage for a successful feast. A round dining table is ideal for bringing people together, while its size enables everyone to be face-to-face, allowing for open communication and lively conversation. 

On the flip side, if seating is your priority, consider opting for a long table; it leaves plenty of room between settings and gives guests ample space to place their plates and drinks. Either way, you will create an inviting atmosphere for any grand feast.

There are many ways to get crafty this Hari Raya and design your festive decorations. Get creative and make bunting or banners from paper or fabric in a variety of vibrant colours and unique patterns. 

For a homemade centrepiece, try wrapping ketupats (rice dumplings) and rendangs (Indonesian meat dish) with paper or fabric - fill them up with rice or stuff for an eye-catching display that will stand out in your room. Handmade decorations can bring colour, warmth, and personality to any space.

Additionally, you can incorporate a ketupat symbol into items like sofa cushions to impress your guests with your creativity and attention to detail. This thoughtful addition will not only enhance the festive atmosphere but also amaze your visitors with your inventive approach to decorating.
