Cute Mugs for Mini Indoor Plants

Although, some common types of large indoor plants like philodendrons, majesty palm or fiddle leaf fig are perfect for filling empty corners and walls. We know that not everyone has room to cultivate those types of big plants at their home. If you’re one of those people, using small indoor plants can be the best way to help you add the right touch of green without taking a large chunk of your space. 

When it comes to mini-plants, you can opt to have baby toes or different types of succulents that are easy to grow and space-saving. Yet, if you want them to be stylish and unique-making a style statement for Raya, then you’ll need personalised mugs to do the magic.

This is because normal mugs looks quite generic but personalised mugs with your photos, quotes or themes will look unique-representing your personality.No matter where you want to place them-be it on a coffee table, on the edge of the balcony, or any other place. They are sure to bring beauty to your home. 

 Throw Pillows to Dress Up Your Couch

Your living room is the main area where your family and guests will be spending time- conversing, enjoying snacks or drinks on Raya. So, it is important to make sure that your living room atmosphere is warm, comforting, and inviting.

The best way you can create a cosy living room is by getting the right seating furniture and accessorising them with soft plush throw pillows. Throw pillows that are small and handy, are the most important home accessory you can own. They are an amazing item that’ll support and give comfort to those who sits on the seating at your home.

They’ll make your family or guests to feel relaxed-leaning on them and have their feet to touch the floor, especially if you have deeper sofa or couch. At the same time, for those who suffer from a sensitive back, they can serve as back support to help them feel comfortable being at your living space.

Besides that, throw pillows can also increase the aesthetic value of any room. With the right throw pillows, you can add colours and textures to your home that’ll jazz up your home.

Attractive Shot Glasses for Dessert

When it comes to Raya, foods are the most important things of the day. Although there are many usual feasts-like ketupat, rendang and more that you’ll be preparing for your family or guests. Sweet treats are important food items that you may not want to miss serving them. The reason is that an event is always more special when delicious desserts are served to conclude the day or evening.
With that in mind, plenty of you might have started to get recipes from Youtube, cookbooks or any other sources to excite the taste buds of your guests. But if you’ve already made up your mind to go for mini desserts-which are skyrocketing in popularity today, then you’ll need shot glasses.
Shot glasses can be used to do just about any type of desserts or cake, from cheesecake to strawberry fool to tiramisu. The best thing about them is, they’ll be the right size with all the style and class of a full-size dessert. They are the perfect size for who want something sweet but don’t want to overindulge themselves. What’s more even better is using personalised shot glasses that represents your own style.
