This idea comes from our friend Manal Aman of Hello Holy Days. The lantern has great historical significance for Muslims observing Ramadan: they were used when going outside to observe the moon, to help a Ramadan drummer wake up the neighborhood for their pre-dawn meal, and performing nighttime prayers. Here, the lantern is reimagined on a smaller size as place cards for an iftar party. "Guests will love the personalized touch," she says. "Plus, they can take the lanterns home as favors!"
