Top Arabian Party Theme Ideas


To throw and Arabian party theme or an Arabian nights party, your aim is to try and create an air of mysticism surrounding princes, princess, kings, queens and thieves.

You need to try and create an aura of the Moroccan desert at night. So definitely throw your party in the late evening and also at the beach would be a great idea. If not, then your back garden should suffice.

I highly suggest you try and rent out a Bedouin tent. They come in all shapes and sizes and will help make your party one to remember. This of course will be dependent on your budget, however for this party theme to work properly and be memorable you really should be thinking about hiring a tent.

For your costume, you could go for an Aladdin or princess Jasmine look. Such a costume is easy to make or rent. Think turbans, pointy slippers, slinky harem pants and gold bracelets.

If you have gone for the tent, most of your furniture needs to be as low down as possible, your guests will preferably be sitting on the floor. So get plenty of nice rugs and cushions. Get some patio lanterns and candles to light your tent and hang crescent moons and stars from the ceiling.

Budget dependent, consider hiring a henna artist, belly dancer, snake charmer, fortune teller or fire eater. Also if you have access to a goat, tie it up to a post outside your tent. Watch it doesn’t chew away on the canvas.

Look into making some traditional middle eastern dishes for the food. Ideally, your party should be sitting on the floor on the cushions and rugs you have provided. Also, the food should be kept on platters on the floor, just let everybody dive in.

For true authenticity, it is traditional for guests to bathe their fingers in scented water before eating. Just put a few drops essential oil in water for this.
