During the pandemic more and more of us are turning to smaller parties and celebrations at home. I love this trend as it’s intimate and a fabulous way to gather with loved ones in a purposeful way. Today I can’t wait to share this Dark and Moody Moroccan Dinner Party with you! The color palette and aesthetic is dreamy, inviting and ideal for a backyard dinner party with friends. Take a look…
Celebrating a milestone birthday during the pandemic is tough! You’ve been dreaming about a grand event and now you find yourself wondering if you should even do anything at all. A fabulous alternative is to scale down your celebration, keep it at home and invite a smaller, intimate group. And that’s just what the co-owner of Mango Studios did to celebrate his 40th Birthday in style! Join me as we take a peek inside his chic moroccan themed dinner party, designed by Rachel A. Clingen Designs, and pull some inspiration for your next celebration!
Moroccan Dinner Party Decor Ideas
Set up in the backyard next to the pool and under the pergola, this long and low table was absolutely stunning and perfectly captured that Moroccan feel! A variety of pillows in cream, black and white were placed around the table for comfortable seating and sparkling gold lanterns and black beaded chandeliers were hung from the pergola, which created an elegant lighting solution as the night grew darker.
You can recreate this look in your own backyard by hanging a variety of shapes and sizes of gold lanterns along with a black chandelier. I love this one because it comes in different sizes and can be plugged in – perfect for outdoors!
The place settings at this birthday party were absolutely dreamy! I adore the mix of black and white with the pops of dark plum, don’t you? The black linen napkins, black matte silverware, black glassware and geometric plates keep the design masculine and moody.
Down the center of the table was a mixture of gold geometric vases and clear glass vases filled with dark plum flowers. Gold and black candlesticks held tall black taper candles and dark feathery plumage added texture and interest to the design.
Moroccan Birthday Party Food Inspiration
Elle Cuisine provided a mouth-watering variety of delicious dinner options for guests. From hand passed appetizer bites to a smorgasbord of dips, meats and seafoods, the Moroccan theme was on full display through the food.
Another great way to add a special detail to your event is to serve a Signature Cocktail. Birthday party guests enjoyed a Moroccan Mojito this night made with mint tea and rum. Sounds good to me (BTW, be sure to check out our cocktail recipes to find the perfect signature drink for your next big event!)!
What a fabulous, intimate night with friends, celebrating a big milestone birthday! I hope you found some ideas for your own Moody Moroccan themed celebration! Be sure to check out our other backyard moroccan birthday party and pin this post for later party planning!
