One can perform Eid Namaz in the same way as in the masjids. In masjid, Imam delivers the khutbah (sermon) of Eid, which is not allowed when the namaz is performed at home. It is similar to a regular namaz other than the Takbeer.

Eid-ul-Fitr Namaz Timing

The Eid namaz timing starts from half an hour after the sunrise and lasts till before Zohar namaz time. Therefore, the person who is proficient in reciting Quran should lead the prayer.

The Eid namaz has two rakats, but it has extra 'takbeers'. Takbeer refers to 'Allah-u-Akbar', which means 'Almighty is Great'. It expresses faith and repeated in every Rakat of salah.

During Takbeer, one has to say "Allah hu Akbar" while raising the hands to the ears in the namaz. Allah hu Akbar, the Arabic word which means Allah is great. During the regular namaz, 'takbeer' is recited only once, but for the Eid namaz, Takbeer has to be repeated 6 times in two rakats.
