Hari Raya is just round the corner. I am looking forward to celebrating it with my Muslim friends. Hari Raya is a great time to catch up with friends over divine tasting food. One of the things I remember about celebrating Hari Raya with my friend, N is the way her mum sets their main table. I would always secretly peek into their dinning hall each year to see how she has done up their main table. Always trust Aunty to whip up tasty Raya goodies and serve them so elegantly. Her table setting is always so pretty and elegant. Tasteful looking platters containing her delicious main course, beautifully polish cutlery and pretty cakes to complete her setting.
When I saw the above 3-tier server centrepiece, I immediately thought of N’s mum and her elegant Hari Raya table setting. Bet Aunty has one of these! Nothing looks more elegant than this silver 3-tier server sitting in the middle of the table. This silver-plated server has a decorative handle for easy carrying. You can put all the pretty cookies and cakes on the different tiers and set it on the table for your guests to savour your cookies or cakes while they mingle. With elegant floral designs, it measures approximately 14″ high with the largest at 12″, centre 9″ and the top is 6.5″. This is going for only USD$ 23.99, am sure it is a small price to pay for immense elegance.
For those who love the country feel, the 3-tier server below is just the thing for you. At only USD$ 13.39, this 3-tier porcelain floral server is just what you need as your pretty centrepiece.

Pyrex has been synonymous to durable and versatile cookware, bakeware and storage. Their classic designs make these wares timeless. Mothers can pass on these to their daughters along with their family’s favourite recipes.
At Amazon.com, a set of Pyrex Bakeware 19-piece Baking Dish Setis going for only USD$ 48.99. Made from durable, non-porous glass, these are ideal for baking and cooking as they provide good heat conduction for even and consistent baking. The clear glass also makes it easy to monitor the baking progress. Additionally, glass do not stain easily or retain food odours making cleaning up a breeze.
What makes this set even more wonderful is that the designs are pretty enough to go straight from the oven to the dinning table. As this set comes with their signature dark blue seal-tight lids, these bakeware can double up as storage too. I really like this concept – straight from the over onto the table and pop on the lids for storage.
So, complete your Hari Raya by having these lovely Pyrex set setting the ambiance for your Hari Raya open house. Am pretty sure that your “rendang”, “nasi himpit” and “serunding” would look very elegant and inviting in these. These are also excellent gifts for this festive season.
One of the best accessories any woman can have is a well dressed and cute baby. I often joke with my friends who are new mothers that we can get away with all the excess post partum baby weight as along as we have a cute baby in our arms. The baby will hide our “excess baggage” and provide distraction by doing cute baby antics.
I used to dress my babies is onesies/rompers as these are specially designed to make dressing and diaper change almost painless. I personally love onesies as the snap bottoms makes diaper changes easier as you just need to unbutton and pull up the bottom potion to change. If you have a really wriggly babe, you would be sweating buckets just trying to get your little one in and out of his/her pants. Besides, with onesies, you don’t have to crack your head if your baby’s top will match the bottom.
babyGap has very cute onesies going for only USD$ 3.99. (Previously retailing at USD$ 12.50) Their Cheeky Animal Graphic Bodysuit comes in 7 really adorable designs for both girls and boys. These short sleeved bodysuits has lapped shoulders and round neckline which are great for dressing babies in a hurry as all you need to do is pull the onesie over your baby’s head and body and you are almost ready. The easy-to-use snaps at the bottom are the only fastening contraptions you need to deal with. No need to fiddle with stubborn buttons or fears of zippers catching delicate baby flesh.
Made from 100% cotton, it is perfect for hot weather or layering with other clothes for chilly evenings. The soft and comfortable knit cotton bodysuit with finely ribbed trim throughout has really adorable graphics in front with humorous sayings that would no doubt make your baby a hit with anyone. My fav is the one with the little bear that says “small, dark and handsome”.
With these cute bodysuits, am sure your little darlings would provide major cute factor for your coming Hari Raya!
