It’s Ramadan season, and after a long day of fasting, we all look forward to a hearty Iftar. To make the most of this Holy month with your loved ones, calling them over for Iftar is an age-old tradition. You probably have an Iftar invitation every other day in the neighbourhood. However, it’s not going to be long before the wheel stops on you for hosting an Iftar party. Here are a few ideas to make ample room for your beloved guests, and give them a sumptuous treat at the end of the day.
Arrange comfortable seating for all
You love the idea of feeding people who have been fasting[ to praise Allah. But space crunch is a real issue. Your dining table can’t accommodate all the people you have invited. Your couch is too small to seat all your guests. In fact, your house may not be big enough to host so many people, and you might need to take the gathering outside. In case you want to have an outdoors Iftar, enjoy the meal under the crescent moon, do it with plastic chairs and tables! Seat as many guests you want to – no space issues whatsoever. Not sure what to do with plastic chairs later? Don’t worry they’ll always come in handy for any get-togethers in the future. Just stack up the chairs in your house when you’re not using them.
Stock up the supplies
If you’re hosting 10-15 guests at least, you’re going to need enough supplies. You surely don’t want to call them for daawat and feed them biryani ordered from a local restaurant. You’d want to celebrate the evening with home-cooked delicacies. Where do you keep the copious amount of cooking ingredients, bottles of Rooh Afza, dried fruits, toiletries, and so much more? You stack it all in huge crates. But where do you find big plastic crates that don’t look ugly? It’s a rare breed but not entirely non-existent.
Wheel – in the food
If you have a small house, the problem can be fixed with placing plastic furniture outside. But are you going to carry the lavish and abundant supply of food all the way from the kitchen to outdoors every time? If you have a big house, you may not have to host the event outdoors but it still doesn’t solve the problem of serving your guests, who just can’t help asking for yet another serving of your delicious food. Easy solution – dinner on wheels. All you need is a beautiful kitchen trolley that can take the food from the kitchen to anywhere you want and serve your guests with piping hot food. A plastic kitchen trolley can prove to be a life-saver when it comes to large-scale hosting.
Get a dustbin, and a big one!
If it’s a huge dawat, it’s going to leave huge waste. Your Iftar dinner is a simple and noble gesture for people fasting this season. But at the end of the day, you’re the one who has to clean up. So make sure you have a plastic dustbin big enough to carry the waste of the huge dinner held at your place. Make sure it’s sturdy, firm and comes with a swing lid for easy access. This is a month of worship and piety, and nothing is closer to godliness than cleanliness.
The millennial mind thinks differently than the baby boomer. Hustling their way into the harsh socio-economic times, the millennial’s have learnt to appreciate minimalism, cost-effectiveness, durability, and Eco-friendliness. This is why the generation speaks against single-use plastic but is pro plastic furniture. Plastic furniture is getting more and more popular with the younger generation. Let’s find out why.
It shouldn’t burn a hole in the pocket
Furniture buying is an expensive affair. Fresh graduates, who have just moved out of their hometown, are not in a position to purchase expensive furniture. Plastic tables and chairs are a cost-effective alternative to wood or metal that serves the purpose without digging a hole in the pocket of the millennial’s who are often identified as the urban poor.
It should be easy to move around
When millennial’s finally find a pad to call their own, they can’t get enough of arranging and rearranging it in their own way. This means the coffee table that was there by the window on Monday will be in front of the TV by Wednesday and by the weekend, it’s going to be somewhere else. Lightweight furniture helps them carry on with their interiors experiment easily.
Who has time for Maintenance?
The millennial’s, by nature, are a low-maintenance generation. A generation who are happy to have a Maggi dinner night after night cannot be expected to put in an extra effort to maintain their furniture. Plastic chairs and tables are as low-maintenance as their owners. It takes a long time for the dust to substantially accumulate on plastic furniture, and when it does, it’s ridiculously easy to wipe it off.
It should be pet-friendly
There are two things that you’re most likely to find at a single millennial’s place – fairy lights and a grumpy cat. While the young millennial’s adore their pets, they have learnt it the hard way that their pets have little regard for their furniture. However, there’s not much damage that is brought upon plastic furniture by these clawing devils. They can’t leave scratch marks on them, they can’t break them, and even if leave fur on the furniture, it can be easily cleaned.
Partying it Out
Having slogged the entire week, the millennial’s like to party hard. If you have followed the latest trends among young professionals of India, you’d know that they like to bring the party home rather than hitting the pub. With house parties being the latest fad in the millennial world, plastic furniture emerges as a lifesaver for the hosts. With zero worries about drinks or food getting spilled.
For the Environment
The millennial’s are more aware of the environment than any generation has ever been. At a time when the air at home is unworthy of breathing unless it’s filtered through a purifier, using Eco-friendly furniture is a natural thing to do. One of the major reasons of ecological imbalance is the rapid depletion of forests. The need for wood for the furniture industry is a primary cause of deforestation. Making plastic furniture doesn’t require chopping down of trees and thus, millennial’s do their bit for the cause by going with Eco-friendly Furniture
