Moroccan Backyard Party To Welcome The Fall Season
Fall is almost upon us and only few days are left before your children go back to school. To welcome the new season and end the current one in primo spirits, it might be a good idea to host an exotic themed backyard party.
Invite your friends and family before you return to the regular and frantic routine that marks the everyday existence of your life.
As for the theme, you can do something different this time by decorating the backyard Moroccan style. Here are some ideas to help you get started:
Arrange a casual yet royal looking seating. Moroccan themed homes are known for dining rooms with floor dining; for a true Moroccan spirit, arrange the dining on the floor as well for your backyard party.
Bring out all the old and new cushions in stock. Ask all the invitees to perhaps bring some of their own and scatter them about so everyone may have a space to sit and lounge. You can assemble the floor cushions on rugs or sheets to keep them clean.
To stay consistent with the Moroccan theme, you can spread doilies over them or get new cushion covers in such color combinations as deep plum and gold, or gold paired with light and dark blue.
The right kind of lighting really adds to the royalty of the Moroccan theme. You can start off with adding intricately designed lanterns to each of the tables and lighting them up with candles inside.
Alternately, you can paint empty glass jars in extravagant colors and use them as a means to hold candles and add to your party’s décor.
To add some general lighting for when it gets dark, the easiest step to take would be to get some string lights and wrap them around tree branches and plants. Skip relying on a paltry retail store selection and instead hunt for internationally themed cafe string lights online. The benefit of going online with the selection is that you get to see the entire variety in a single place and compare prices at the same time.
For the general décor of your Moroccan themed party, start off with sectioning off your backyard to distinguish the dining area, the food bar and perhaps even the play area if kids are invited.
You can do the sectioning by draping colored clothes over your home plants and trees and successfully achieve a royal look at the same time.
You can also add flower petals strewn across the grass. For tables, short round ones with cushions around them would be suitable.
Don’t go overboard and cook every Moroccan recipe that you come across. Instead, go with a few basic ones and include some regular food, but serve in Moroccan style to match the theme.
Adults might want to like to try out a new dish or two, but when it comes to the kids, it would be safe to have some food at hand that they normally eat.
Invite only as much people as you can manage in your backyard. Also, be sure to check the weather beforehand so that your party does not suffer the wrath of a downpour.
