How to throw the ultimate arabian nights themed event
To make your event really stand out, a strong theme is essential. Try something different and bring a little bit of Arabian glamour to your party by throwing the ultimate exotic event with an Arabian Nights theme and a stunning themed marquee. It’s a great idea for birthdays, corporate events and even weddings, and we’ve pulled together some handy hints to help you pull off the best Arabian nights themed bash.
Use some gorgeous exotic props. Props are one of the best ways to set the scene for your Arabian nights party. Think soft lighting, ornate lamps, soft fabrics and cushions. You want to create a relaxed and intriguing atmosphere, and brilliant props really set the scene. They’re great for people taking photos, especially mirrors for selfies. Turn on the glam and add a huge chandelier to your marquee hire, along with beautiful furniture, exotic plants and Moroccan lanterns.
Use a colour theme of dark blues, purples and reds with gold and silver highlights. You can use this in your invitations, your marquee decor and even your carpet hire.
It’s important to get your location right and hiring a marquee is the best way to get the feel of Arabian nights. A beautiful large marquee is the perfect backdrop to your event and walking into a stunning themed marquee is a great way to wow your guests. Use tealights and fairy lights to add some twinkle. Light the way to your marquee with beautiful lanterns to set the scene and make sure that the entrance features some magical carpets and rugs!
Enjoy some exotic cuisine. If you’re having food at your event, try something different and serve some stunning Arabian dishes. If you are having canapes, try delicious bite-sized falafel, bread with dips like houmous, labneh and baba ghanoush and gorgeous spinach pastries called fatayer sabanekh. If you’re having a sit-down meal, make sure chicken kabsa, veggie tagines and Arabian lamb are on the menu.
Get your entertainment right. Add to the exotic feel and hire some incredible belly dancers to perform. Go bold with some amazing fire eaters or a fireworks display. If your party is adults only, we have shisha pipes to hire for something different and original. Have areas for guests to relax and chat with some comfy sofas or beanbags.
Make sure your party is the best ticket in town with a gorgeous Arabian nights themed event.
