photos from November Blog
Every Ramadan ( which we celebrated last month) families send favors to other relatives and friends during Gerge'an..
Originally Gerge'an is a 3 day celebration somewhat similar to Halloween , kids dress up , not in costumes but in traditional Kuwaiti costumes , and go door to door in the neighborhood asking for treats..
grown-ups , these days , have developed a new version of their Gerge'an.. making and sending favors and treats to family members and friends..
so this year was very special to me , as it was the first year my little girl gets to celebrate Gerge'an and dress up in traditional Kuwaiti costumes.. therefore , I have ordered the favors from a very elegant bakery here in Kuwait ..called The November Bakery. If you may recall , I have already written a previous post with some photos about this bakery.
I had one theme on mind , which was a Tea Party.. which we call in Kuwait Baroy.. with teacups , sweets such as biscuits and ghraybah ( a traditional kuwaiti cookie) .. sachets of loose tea , sugar .. November Bakery was the best in taking my concept and putting it into reality.
they created trays , of blue and rose.. each have compartments that hold a teacup, which was a delicate vintage design ..and sachets of the loose tea & sugar , sachets of cookies of many sorts and ghraybah.. all packaged up nicely , which a wonderful gift tag that says " Ghraybah o Ghareeb 3ala Chay o 7aleeb" which merely translates into "have your ghraybah ( cookie) with creamed tea " ..
thank you November for such a great presentation! I loved working with you and you definetly have put a smile on every reciever of this favor , Gerge'an!
