♠ For a start, Moroccan ‘seating’ is on the floor, with guests relaxing on scattered floor cushions and pillows.
♠ For the tables, and you will want to keep these low, you will look for bright colored to adorn your tables.
♠ With a few Moroccan lanterns around, you already basically have set the scene for your Moroccan party.
♠ Another excellent idea for inside your tent will be bejeweled fabric drapes or curtainsto shimmer and sparkle away in the evening lights. These will surely transform your beach tent into a lavish desert-tent, allowing the lanterns to cast mysterious and interesting shadows through the entire space. Lighting is an important component of Moroccan design. Colorful balloons in the matching colors of the cloths can be hung here and there as well. A balloon garland is also a wonderful way to draw attention to the banquet table. Above the banqueting table where the meals and delicacies will be served, you can place some gold lettering, maybe in Moroccan, saying ‘welcome’ or whatever tickles your fancy.
♠ Naturally, you will have drink station inside your tent as well, where your guests can help themselves. Colorful accessories can also be included to add to the décor and fun of the evening, such as straws, stirrers, mini cocktail umbrellas, the ice bucket – allow your guests to accessorize their own drinks. Traditional Moroccan drinks such as special mint teaand spiced cocktails will go down well with the food menu. You can also scatter rose petals on each table.
♠ Other exciting décor ideas are to place battery operated candle lanterns all around the tent in strategic places as well as at the entrance, for when the sun has set. Miniature lanterns are a must-have, offering mysticism and intrigue, and apart from being scattered all around, the miniature ones are ideal on the tables.
♠ Remember that the entrance to your tent is what your guests will notice first – the impression factor – this needs to create a real wow factor look. A super idea would be to have gold fringed curtains which cover the doorway of the tent with maybe a red rope barrier put across and a sign outside saying ‘VIP Entrance’.
♠ Remember to make beautiful party invites – on the invite, allow your guests a peek at what the party is about.
♠ Add magnificent table runners on the tables. You can also choose colorful flowers in tiny flower pots matching the color theme for your party tables.
♠ Choose gorgeous Moroccan coasters and dinner plates, tea glasses in traditional Moroccan style, making them all part of the décor.
