One of my readers wrote in requesting ideas for a Moroccan themed event. She's hosting a shower for a friend and needed a bit of a visual to pull it together.
I turned this one over to my friend, Dianne of Colorblind Productions in the New Jersey and New York City areas. Dianne put together this inspiration board to get the ideas rolling of color schemes and decor used in a Moroccan theme occasion. From Dianne:
"Opulent and rich are the operative words when you think of a Moroccan color scheme. The key is to transform the space to a sensual interior with the right decorating touches. Rich color palettes, luxurious appearing decorations, lighting and theme inspired favors. A major decor element that would immediately welcome the Moroccan theme would be a pavilion style tent or a grouping of smaller tents. Fill the room with the fragrance of dried rosebuds, cinnamon , ginger, cumin and citrus peels in glass bowls.
Alternatives to authentic Moroccan decor can be found in Indian brass work or spanish iron work. Even some South American pottery has equalities that embody the Moroccan theme. Think brass and gold finished items!"
To say that Dianne and her staff are multicultural experts would be a severe understatement. They are particularly adept at mixing cultures at weddings. A Chinese-Mexican wedding? sure What about Macedonian - Filipino? no problem! Puerto Rican - Syrian? easy!
If you're in the NJ/NYC area and are looking for an expert in the multicultural event arena, contact Dianne and let her transform your space into a faraway oasis!
