If you are planning a big celebration for a special birthday or wedding or anniversary why not choose Moroccan decor as the party theme? It will be fun. It will be exotic. And it will be enjoyed by all who attend this event. You can transform your back yard or garden into a setting for a Moroccan royal palace that will enchant everyone with its authenticity and cleverness.
Moroccan decor lends itself to an evening of luxury and will be a unique party theme that will be remembered for years to come. You can create a canopied area for the guests of honor that will resemble a lavish palace with its low sofas and cushioned seating in the form of poufs – the Moroccan word for their stylish and comfortable ottomans. The drapes of the canopy can be tied off to the side or closed to provide more privacy if needed.
With twinkling Moroccan lanterns dangling from the ceiling of the canopied area as well as from nearby trees and any appropriate place to provide the intimate and seductive lighting that these lanterns provide. The tented area can be large enough for the whole party or can be more intimate but whether inside the tent or outside you can set up many low Moroccan tables in a variety of sizes and shapes that are all hand painted and carved by skilled artisans who use geometric patterns to make a pattern that is simply breathtaking to see.
Low seated areas with more ottomans, benches or other comfortable seating provides your guests with ample places to relax and enjoy the evening. Smaller lanterns can light up each table and provide a warm glow over the setting. Silk embroidered and tasseled pillows make bright splashes of color against the patterned cushions of the sofas and chairs so that you have many seating arrangements that will conform to the number of people who pull up a pouf and have a seat!
Under everyone’s feet there will be gorgeous handmade richly patterned rugs that provide a lovely and comfortable setting like you are ensconced in your living room rather than your backyard! Brass tray tables add their charm for the serving of tea or other refreshments. The combination of the many textures – rugs, cushions, trays – and colors that feature the whole spectrum of the rainbow for a kaleidoscope of color that will dazzle everyone especially with the lights from the Moroccan lanterns.
Moroccan furniture celebrates the opulence and beauty of the royal palaces of Morocco and the richness displayed in the Moroccan furniture and all its accessories adds to the authenticity of this party theme. Your guests will feel like they have been transported to another world – and in a sense they will have been – one that represents the mystique of the Kasbah and the cultural celebration of Morocco. They will be impressed by the beauty of the furnishings and the handmade products that represent the skillfulness of the artisans who labor over their wares lovingly and with a dedication to uphold their rich traditions.
