Moroccan Oppulence

6 December 2009

This year we’re headed to the bustling Souks of Marrakesh and the inviting shores of Essouira for Christmas and New Year, so with thoughts of Morocco on my mind, I couldn’t help but get carried away in visions of vibrant coloured decor and exotic Moroccan theming.

Venue: Hire a marquee or authentic Bedouin tent. If the budget is tight go with a venue that you can easily decorate with falmboyant colourful drapes, lighting and persian rugs.

Decor: Think insense burners, hookah pipes, exotic flowers in hot pinks and rich oranges. Creat an explosive impact with dramatic lighting and lots of heavy vibrantly coloured fabrics. Hire decorative cutlery and crockery. Dot the floor with cushions, windows with flickering tea lights and lanterns.
Entertainment: Performers will complement your theme. Think belly dancers, henna painters, drummers and push the boat out with a snake charmer.

Menu: Serve delicious tagines of mezze, spicy lamb and brightly coloured cocktails. Finish with mint tea.

Pudding: Opt for baklava and Turkish delight piled high on a bejewelled cake stand.

This theme is one to have fun with. Let your creative juices flow and mix in all those wonderfully rich and warm Arabian colours.
